Bell Sounds from the 20th - July 3, 2017

I hope you’re having a wonderful Summer! I’ve already seen many of you out and about at some of the wonderful activities this area has to offer, and I hope to see more of you throughout the coming months.

I’d love to give you an update on the happenings in the area and across the Commonwealth.

New Laws

As you know, the 2017 General Assembly adjourned in early March. Throughout the 46 day session, we considered thousands of bills. Most of the bills that ultimately passed and were signed by the Governor went into effect July 1.

Each year, the Department of Legislative Services compiles a list of legislation that may affect the average citizen.  While this is not a comprehensive list, I encourage you to take a look at it, and share it with your friends.

 America’s Birthday Celebration 

For those of you who may still be trying to decide how to spend your Independence Day, I encourage you come out to the American’s Birthday Celebration at Gypsy Hill Park. 

It will be going on today and tomorrow and is a wonderful event for the whole family.  There are vendors, great food, rides and games for the kids, and live entertainment.  There is also a parade going through the park at 10:00 am tomorrow morning! For more information on this event, including a schedule of events,  go to www.stauntonjulyfourth.com.

 Join us for Baseball!

 This Thursday, July 6 we will be hosting a promotional night at the Waynesboro Generals Game and Friday, July 7, is our annual promotion night at the Staunton Braves baseball game.

We will be there both nights right outside the gate and will have a free gift for the first 250 attendees. We hope to see you there!
