Rockville – Donna-Jo Webster

April 17, 2014


Hello, everybody! Looks like Mother Nature is wreaking full blown green and yellow havoc all over town. Wonder why the hardware stores don’t get creative and rename their slightly-out-of-season snow shovels as “pollen removers” and make a fortune?

Happy hometown birthday wishes go out this week to Carson Cheeley of neighboring Glen Allen, blowing out his candles April 21.

Join the Rockville Ruritans for a beautiful and inspirational Easter Sunrise Service this Sunday, April 20 at 7 a.m. ‘round the lake at the old Missionary Learning Center on South Anna Drive. Everyone is cordially invited.

Our friends at the Hanover Herb Guild invite everyone to join them for an informative evening with Mr. John Kang, a noted herbal expert, on the Chinese Theory of Herbal Medicine this Tuesday, April 22 at 7 p.m. in the ballroom of the Montpelier Center for Arts and Education, 17205 Mountain Road. Mr. Kang is from a family of noted Chinese physicians and will discuss herbal classification, function, theories, and biomedical research. For more info, call George Brown at (804) 301-8289.

Lots of good eating is on tap at the Rockville Ruritans free spaghetti dinner Friday, April 25 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Rockville Center on Pouncey Tract Road. The club will be serving up spaghetti, salad, bread, and your choice of water, tea or lemonade. The dinner is the Ruritans’ way of saying thanks to the community for the continued support of the club and their projects. The dinner is free but if you’re feeling generous, you can make a donation to support the Wounded Warriors Project. Call Lynn Dyer for more info at (804) 640-1329.
