May 25, 2017

Happy Memorial Day to all, I hope this holiday brings you some time off and pretty weather for a picnic!!! There are a few things coming up in our community, if you know of any others, please let us know so we can spread the word!!! The Beaverdam Ruritans will be hosting Cash BINGO every other month starting in February with each BINGO’s proceeds supporting local charities. Friday, June 16 will benefit the Beaverdam Youth League. Doors open at 6 p.m. with concessions ready by 6:30 p.m. – Games start at 7 p.m. Admission $20.00 for 16 games. Family Friendly – Smoke Free and Yummy Cheese Fries! The club is located at 18002 Teman Road Beaverdam, VA. More information on our website www.BeaverdamRuritan.com. The Doswell Community Center is a happening place, if you are looking for something fun to do and get a little exercise in at the same time, come out on Monday nights at 7 p.m. for a fun line dance class. There is no charge, just fun and fellowship for all. Hope to see you there! It’s official!  This began on May 13, and will continue once a month thereafter, there will again be live music at the Fork Church in Doswell!  The address is 12566 Old Ridge Road and the music will go from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., watch for the next date! A new band called CrossOver is taking up the reins of what used to be The Old Dominion Revue there, and are now calling it The Old Dominion RE-View.  CrossOver will be offering traditional country, pop, and 50’s rock, and may even toss in a bluegrass, gospel, ‘40’s standard, soul, or request number now and again.  They will be hosting a short open mic session each month for those who might like to get up and sing. Folks will be welcome to dance, sing along, or just close their eyes and relive their memories of those great old songs from yesteryear. There will be a $5 per head cover charge, $10 for families, which will cover the band and all overhead to keep the Parish Hall cleaned and maintained for the ongoing live music performances there.  Fork Church’s parish hall is a great listening room for live music, and there’s plenty of room for dancing too. Folks are welcome to come out, meet and chat with the band members and each other, sit back and relax and enjoy a fun Saturday evening performance. Please let me know if you have any other news you’d like to share, too, such as births, marriages, birthdays, retirements, etc. I’m always looking for good news to share!
