February 11, 2016

Hello, everybody! How’s your February shaping up? If you’re like me, you’re more than ready to get out in the late winter sunshine and start garden planning. The crocuses at Casa Webster are doing their part, already bursting through the earth to brighten our days, while the birds are scouting out the best field grasses and twigs to line their new spring nests.
Lots of smiles in and around town this week as we tip our hats to some local folks celebrating their birthdays. Among them are David Hinton, hearing that familiar song on Feb. 12, Joe Isbell, gathering with family and friends on Feb. 14, and Ken Jurman, blowing out candles on Feb. 19.
Be a sweetie and treat your sweetie to a fun (lucky!) evening of Rockville Ruritan Bingo this Friday, Feb. 12 at the Rockville Center on Pouncey Tract Road. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., games begin at 7 p.m. Food is available for purchase, and kids’ packs of game cards are available at reduced prices. The whole family can join in on the fun! For details, call Lynn Dyer at (804) 640-1329.
Our own Cochrane Rockville Library presents a special Snuggle With a Book Evening Storytime in honor of the Winter Reading Program Wednesday, Feb. 17, at 6:30 p.m. Bring the little ones out (in their PJs, if you like!) for a cozy evening of winter tales, songs, a bedtime snack and more. Call the branch at (804) 749-3146 for details.
Catch Patrick Henry High School’s two award-winning show choirs, Essence (ladies only) and Sounds (guys and gals) in a preview performance of their 2016 season at the school Monday, Feb. 22, at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at the door, with a suggested $5 fundraiser donation per person. The school is located on Route 54 just outside of Ashland.
Patrick Henry Indoor Softball Camp takes place Saturday, Feb. 27 for students in first through eighth grades. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., a pitching and catching session ($30) runs from 9 to 11 a.m. and a fielding and hitting session ($50) runs from noon to 4 p.m.; attend both training camps for just $65.
Checks should be made out to Patrick Henry High School, with the memo “PH softball” included. Campers must provide their own equipment, including shoes, bats, gloves, helmets and more. For details, contact Beth Radcliffe at or call (804) 592-9307.
