We are writing again this year to ask for your enthusiastic support of our small town tradition—our annual Crozet Independence Day parade, celebration, and fireworks show on Saturday, June 30, 2018. The fun starts on Saturday, June 30th with a parade down Crozet Avenue starting at 5:00 PM.  We’re hoping the parade will be better and bigger than last year! Anyone...
We are writing to clarify the article in the May issue about Emmanuel Episcopal Church’s outreach to Mountainside Senior Living. The twice-monthly gatherings at Mountainside were started over thirty years ago by Emmanuel’s beloved parishioner Margaret McCue Washington. At these tea parties, numerous other parishioners brought cookies to eat, and dogs and children to entertain. For many years Emmanuel parishioner and Crozet...

Expensive Volvos, BMWs, Range Rovers and...
If you had told me a year ago that my vivacious and energetic three-year-old would need open heart surgery, I wouldn’t have believed you. But at a routine cardiology appointment at U.Va. Children’s Hospital last October, my daughter’s doctors discovered that the heart defects we’d known about since her birth had changed and needed to be repaired. Our story has...

In one of those miracles of the modern age, that editorial was noticed by a California...
