Ashland – Meriwether Gilmore

April 17, 2014


April showers, right? Just like we are so ready to throw off our winter clothes, I think the plants and trees of Ashland have had enough of winter, too. I can’t remember when things have so quickly burst into bloom, wait, excuse me… I have to sneeze…

There is a lot going on in our town in the coming weeks! Our 36th annual Railroad Run sprints through our streets in two Saturdays– April 26. If you’re a runner or a walker, sign up to participate at Otherwise, plan on coming out to clap and cheer, and to visit the Green Fair on the front lawn.

On the same day, The Friends of Ashland Library will also be having their annual book sale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There are over 1,000 books that have been donated for purchase; hardbacks are $1, paperbacks are $.50, and children’s books are $.25 or five for $1. This is a perfect opportunity to get books for your summer reading!

Happy Anniversary wishes to Bob and Elaine Nelson, residents of Elmont for 40 years, who celebrate their 58th wedding anniversary this month!

The National Day of Prayer will be celebrated in Ashland Thursday, May 3 at 7 p.m. It will be held on the grounds of the Ashland Town Hall on Thompson Street. It will feature “Prayer, Praise and Music.” Everyone is invited to attend. Please bring a lawn chair or blanket.

The sidewalks along South Center Street are looking beautiful! There are lots of places to sit and watch for our singing cyclist. I still haven’t gotten the full scoop on who she is, so I am expecting you all to continue to investigate!

Call or email me with your Ashland news (804) 310-5320, Happy Easter!
