It is scheduled to take place between 3 and 7 p.m. This is for anyone 18 and up. Call (540) 332-5122 for an available appointment.

The second event will take place at the farmers market in Glasgow. May Day at the market will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. You’ll be able to purchase food from Bizzee b’s bbq, Blue Ridge Cider Doughnuts and Valley Pig Poppers. Other vendors include ceramics by The Potter’s Hand (Julia), handmade wind chimes by Harry’s Windchimes, various crafts by Deborah Farina, and Busy Bees of Lexington (Sara) will bring wreaths, décor signs, and local bee products. Rockbridge Homegrown will have art work, decorative rocks and gourds, Susan with Sweet Confections will have her delicious baked goods, and Serenity Farms (Robin) will have seedling plants, freeze dried foods, eggs, and much more.

You’ll also be able to sign up for a drawing of a gift basket worth over $100. Kids will be able to spin a handcrafted prize wheel for various prizes. All this and more! CDC guidelines will be in place for your safety. Please wear masks and maintain a distance between each other.

Ronnie and Carolyn Saunders took a motorcycle trip to South Carolina recently to visit with some old friends.

Among events canceled last year due to COVID, was the Rockbridge Regional Fair that was to take place in Glasgow. Those plans are underway again to hold the fair here this summer. Several music events are also planned throughout the summer. Watch for more details.

Heather Ryan, who worked in the town hall office, resigned last week. Her husband has taken a new job out of state and they are moving. She was a great asset to the office and town, and will be missed. We wish them well.
