I’ve noticed that the stores are stocking their shelves with school supplies already, is it really that time already? Well, we have a local church that is providing a school supply drive as an outreach in the community.  They will be collecting new school supplies at their church from 9 to 11 a.m. every Sunday morning. All School supplies collected will be given to Beaverdam Elementary School.  Our church name is New Hope Community Church at Duke’s Chapel, 12775 Old Ridge Road.  We will be starting to collect this Sunday, July 23rd and go on up until August 20th.

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!
