According to Torney Van Acker, “A big shout out to RLEP (Rappahannock League for Environmental Protection) volunteers who braved the cold and wind last Monday to remove litter from both directions of Route 211 between Amissville and the County line. 21 large bags of trash were collected. Thanks for keeping Rappahannock beautiful.”

St Patrick’s Day is today, Thursday, March 17. Many people go out of their way to celebrate. Regardless of your heritage, you might celebrate by sporting your best bright green shirt and meeting up with friends at your favorite Irish pub. But there’s a lot more to the holiday than simply wearing green and knocking back a pint of Guinness.

I always think that summer is finally winding down, farmers getting their last cut of hay, Halloween displays are already in some of the stores! Last week was a harbinger of fall, if not a teaser, with the blue sky and white fluffy sheep clouds in the sky and cool temperatures early in the mornings. For some people I am sure that summer has just started for them, but for me I always think of fall just around the corner when I see Roger Jenkins’ stand open in Sperryville. I’m sure there will be some more hot days in the forecast, for example this week. Overall, I am ready to switch gears here to welcome the autumn weather, shorter days and cooler nights.
