6/2/11 Start of Summer, Library Events, New Farmer's Market Location

I know that this heat feels unbearable sometimes, but it’s this time of year that we have to remind ourselves to switch into that summer gear; slow down, dress lighter, and care less about the sweat rolling down your back. We should all be as lazy as is possible without losing your job, and spend ridiculous amounts of time sitting by the Ashland pool.

There are some birthday girls to congratulate this week: Katelynn Brown turned 10 on June 8th and JoAnn Hunter turned 18 on the 9th! We hope that they both had a wonderful day and got lots of presents.

There are lots of events going on at your friendly, neighborhood library, from Teen Movie Night, to Computer Classes, to a Teddy Bear Beach Party! Stop by the library for more information or visit their website:

The Bluemont Concerts will return to the lawn of the Arts and Activities Center this summer, so block off each Sunday in August on your calendar! This event is completely run by volunteers, so if you’d like to lend a hand, please call 798-2728.

The Ashland Farmers Market is open every Saturday morning in their new spot behind Town Hall from 9am to noon. Come early to get the freshest vegetables, baked goods, and flowers.

Lunch on the Lawn is back every Wednesday through the end of this month. Bring your lunch and join your neighbors on the front lawn of Town Hall from noon to 1:30pm. This event is sponsored by the Ashland Main Street Association.

The Metropolitan Richmond Artists Association will exhibit new and recent works by its members at Gallery 606 on Thompson Street in Ashland from June 9th through June 29th. The opening reception will be this Friday, June 10th, from 7-9pm. Please call 752-7126 for more information.

There are only a few more days left of school! Do you have kids graduating and leaving for college? Call or email with your Ashland news: 310-5320, Have a great weekend!
