11/10/11 NYC Marathon Runners, Firehouse Theater, RMC vs. HSC

Here they are, those beautiful fall colors that grace our sweet town every year. It is simply stunning and it is easy to forget about our crazy mid-Atlantic weather when we watch this fashion show outside our windows.

Happy birthday wishes went out last week to Madison Brown who blew out thirteen candles on her cake! Good grief, she’ll be off to college in the blink of an eye.

Some really big congratulations are in order for the two newest members of the New York Marathon Club: Jo Ann Hunter and Craig Hatz! These two runners began with just a mile or two on the flat streets of Ashland, and now they’ve run in the world’s largest marathon. We are very, very proud.

This Saturday, November 12th, the Ashland Firehouse Theater will feature its second foreign language film: “The Motorcycle Diaries” from Brazil. Produced by Robert Redford, this movie is based on the true story of Che Guevara’s motorcycle adventure across Latin America. Remember, all tickets are FREE! The curtain goes up at 7:45pm- put it on your calendar.

There are two great classes coming to your friendly local library next week. A computer basics class will be held on Monday November 14th at 6:30 p.m. This is a great class for someone who’s interested in learning the basics of using a computer. Find out about the parts of a computer, learn how to use a mouse, begin to explore & search the Internet, and set up an e-mail account. Call 798-4072 to register for the class.

Then on Tuesday at 7pm, come hear local gardening and author, Nancy Hugo, talk about her newest book, “Seeing Trees: Discover the Secret Lives of Everyday Trees. A book signing and refreshments will follow the presentation.

You do know what happens this Saturday, don’t you? The place to be is at the Randolph-Macon stadium for the last game on Day Field: our fearless Yellow Jackets against Hampton-Sydney! Kick-off is at 1pm, but it will be packed, so get there early. Please, please, please- knock the ties off those HSC boys. Go Jackets!

Call or email me with your Ashland news: 310-5320, ashlandnews@gmail.com. Have a wonderful weekend- visit your local farmer’s market!

Patriotism in the United States can be a tricky thing: too much and its scary nationalism, not enough and its apathetic socialism.   ...
