Attention fairy lovers: Samuels Library holds free children’s nature program on Aug. 7

FRONT ROYAL — Fairies have a very important message that they want to communicate to humans: Heal and respect Earth.

Fairies — those fanciful, magical, enchanting beings — can help empower children to be environmentally friendly, considerate of all life forms, and supportive of saving wildlife and the planet.

But first, kids need to attract them into the human world.

One of the best ways to do that is by creating fairy houses that draw in the sprite, sparkly pixies.

Luckily for local children ages 6 years and up, Samuels Public Library is holding a free program that provides all the materials children need to build a fairy house.

“Kids love fairies,” said Michal Ashby, youth reference supervisor at the library. “We thought it would be a fun thing to do to connect them with the environment.”

“Fairy Frolic: A Children’s Program” is scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 7, from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the library on E. Criser Road in Front Royal.

Youngsters can build their own fairy house and then celebrate reading afterwards with fairy lemonade, shimmery cookies and a tour of the library’s Children’s Garden, where Ashby said they’ll also learn about what plants to grow in the garden to entice fairies to visit.

Creating fairy houses, she said, offers children a unique activity that encourages them to go outside, connect with the natural world, and learn how to nurture, care and respect the environment — all of which are very important to fairies.

“The program brings alive nature for them,” said Ashby, who also plans to incorporate learning through stories and lore. “Hopefully, children will fall in love with nature.”

The Fairy Frolic program is one of several free programs offered by Samuels Public Library to highlight its Summer Reading Club, Ashby said.

More than 1,100 children registered this summer for the reading club, which is a free, annual event that gets kids to read or listen to books from June through August, win prizes and attend free programs like Fairy Frolic. All that’s required is registration.

“We try to bring in programs that incorporate folklore, history, culture, nature — whatever might encourage more reading,” said Ashby.

In addition to Fairy Frolic, other fun programs held at the library this summer to celebrate reading included:

• Wiggly Worms: Under the supervision of Allyson Ponn of the Lord Fairfax Soil and Conservation District, kids made a worm hotel for the library garden and learned about the importance of worms to the health of the soil and farm crops. The worms were garden pets for the entire summer and children could participate in twice-weekly feedings held at the library. The worms were officially released today.

• Creepy Crawlies: Wildlife Ambassadors helped children discover the truth about “misunderstood” animals like poisonous toads, pythons, spiders, hissing cockroaches and skinks.

• Being creative with puppet shows, song and dance programs, art, a Mario Kart Wii tournament, movies with free popcorn and refreshments, and a Mexican fiesta.
And the list goes on.

“I like to think we’re an asset to the community,” said Harold Hayes, director of the Samuels Public Library. “We provide the community with access to information. And information is huge.”

As Warren County, VA’s only library, Hayes said it’s important to engage with residents on a variety of levels, including by starting young people on the road to reading as early as possible.

The library’s Summer Reading Club culminates in the free “Magic and Illusion of John Kingry” performance, which is being held on Friday, Aug. 9 at 2 p.m. by Magician John Kingry, who will perform a mind-boggling show of trickeries and levitation. He’ll even saw someone in half!

While the Summer Reading Club is ending, Ashby and Hayes said that young and adult readers may join upcoming Winter Reading Clubs that also will highlight more free programming and prizes to celebrate reading. Details are available online or at the library.

And don’t forget to mark your calendar for Aug. 7 for the Fairy Frolic children’s program. Register here for this event online.


Children on Aug. 7 can build their own fairy houses like the one at the library’s Children Garden.

Illuminating Hearts: The Celebration of Lights, a 40-Year Beacon of Memory and Hope



A Time-Honored Tradition Reimagined for Tomorrow.

From its modest beginnings in 1982, the Warren Memorial Hospital (WMH) Auxiliary’s “Celebration of Lights” has grown into more than just a festive event; it has become a heartfelt symbol of remembrance and a beacon of hope for the community. As the auxiliary marks the 41st anniversary of this cherished tradition, this year invites the community to a special ceremony that honors the past while shining a light on the future.

The inaugural event, featuring a grand fir tree on Shenandoah Avenue adorned with a thousand bulbs, was a vivid tribute to loved ones. The radiance of the “Starburst” light at the tree’s peak symbolized hope and unity, extending beyond mere festive illumination to ignite a spirit of communal support. The funds raised were crucial in nurturing future healthcare professionals through the WMH Auxiliary Scholarship Fund.

Yet, with the tides of change, the auxiliary adapted. The towering fir at the old hospital’s location gave way to a smaller yet equally symbolic tree at the new hospital. The traditional red and white bulbs transitioned into a more lasting form of tribute: a memory book. This book, filled with names and stories, serves as a poignant reminder of the lives touched by the community and continues to bolster the auxiliary’s mission.

The 2023 Celebration of Lights, scheduled for December 7th at 351 Valley Health Way, promises to be a blend of nostalgia and contemporary charm. Starting at 5:00 pm, the event will feature refreshments and the harmonious melodies of the Valley Chorale. It’s an evening dedicated to celebrating community bonds, honoring memories, and fostering the growth of future healthcare leaders.

The evolution of this event mirrors the story of Front Royal’s own transformative journey. The Celebration of Lights began as an offshoot of the Red Stocking Follies, a major fundraising production that concluded in 1981. The auxiliary’s creative pivot to the light celebration in 1982 breathed new life into their fundraising efforts, laying the foundation for a tradition that has stood the test of time. As the community gathers under the glow of the tree, they’re not just reliving a tradition; they’re rekindling a collective spirit and nurturing the seeds of future growth in healthcare.

Trinity Lutheran Church Kris Kringle Market and Free Holiday Meal Dec 2/Dec 6 in Stephens City



“Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing, some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.”  Hebrews 13:2 NIV

Rev. Janice Marie E. (“JMe”) Lowden invites the Shenandoah Valley community to join Trinity Lutheran Church in both festive events.

Kris Kringle Market

The Trinity Lutheran Church Kringle Market will take place on Saturday, December 2, 2023 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.  The Kringle Market is centrally located in the Newtown–Stephensburg Historic District in the Trinity Lutheran Church Parish Hall and parking lot on the corner of Main Street and State Route 277 (810 Fairfax Street).

“Modeled after the famous markets in Germany, the Kris Kringle Market will offer light displays, music, holiday food, handmade crafts, children’s activities, and a memorable shopping experience for all ages,” Chair of Social Outreach Ministry, Kim Begnaud, said.  “There will be handmade Christmas crafts for children and adults to make. Also, festive lights and ample Christmas decorations and trees.”

Vendors will be selling soft pretzels, German brats, spiced cider, and hot chocolate.  The Lutheran Women’s group will be selling homemade cakes, cookies, and brownies.  Sewing for the Savior group will have handmade quilts for sale. A Kris Kringle actor will provide stories to get everyone in the holiday spirit.  “Tours of the Christmas-decorated church, built in 1906, will be available and there will be a “selfie” photo option in our lovely parlor by the fireplace,” The Reverend JMe Lowden said.

According to Begnaud, there is planning for 20 vendors to set up in the Trinity Lutheran Church parking lot.  The Kris Kringle Market is a fun and festive way to shop, and you can delight in viewing local hand-made and home-grown selections from baked goods, crochet, jewelry, custom shirts, tumbles, dog treats, wood crafts, alpaca scarves, hats and gloves and fleece items, placemats, holiday décor and more.  “Bring your holiday shopping list and find unique Christmas items for everyone, including something enjoyable for yourself,” said Begnaud.

Free Holiday Meal with all the fixings

If one has read the Surgeon General’s 2023 report on America’s epidemic of loneliness and crisis of disconnection, one can then understand the significance that a Holiday Meal can have on the community at large.  Meal sharing is a way to spend time with others, but more than that, it invites intimate conversations, laughter, and a spirit of togetherness.  It is easy to come together in fellowship when food is involved.

As part of their monthly Community Meal offerings, Trinity Lutheran Church’s Annual Free Holiday Meal is scheduled for Wednesday December 6, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Parish Hall.  According to Holiday Meal Coordinator, Vickie Hollis, the community meal has been served each Christmas season by the Social Outreach Team for over 20 years with breaks in their service during the build-out of the new parish hall and throughout the Covid breakout.

The idea for the community meal began from a series of committee discussions about the time and talents of the congregation members.  “We knew from many church suppers that our members had an incredible talent for cooking.  These discussions led to the premise that Trinity could successfully host a large free Annual Holiday Meal inviting the public,” Hollis said.  “Our first press releases listed a variety of reasons to attend.  Kids are driving you crazy?  More mouths to feed than money?  Hate doing dishes?  Come to downtown Stephens City and enjoy the Holiday Meal!”

Trinity Lutheran is passionate about reaching out to the local population.  “We have found that many of our guests live alone and enjoy sharing a meal and fellowship with other visitors.  We believe the fellowship is just as important as the food.  Trinity received our finest compliment from a guest who informed us that we served love on a plate,” Hollis said.

The full menu includes roast turkey and dressing, gravy, sweet potatoes, green beans, cranberry sauce, rolls, apple, cherry, pumpkin and pecan pies, coffee, iced tea, and water.  The Social Outreach Team usually serves around 100 holiday meals.  Meals are also delivered to homebound church members.  “If there are going to be leftovers, the cooks pack up “to go” meals for anyone who wants to take food home,” Hollis added.

German-style scissor cut Chrismon ornaments tree. “Chrismon” stands for “Christ monogram,” and these represent various Christian symbols that recall the life of Christ. Chrismon’s were originally developed during the 1960’s by the women of Ascension Lutheran Church in Danville, VA. These ornaments were first made from intricate patterns using Styrofoam, gold beads, pearls, and other materials in white and gold. A second tree in the worship area of the church has these ornaments made from the original Chrismon patterns. Courtesy Trinity Lutheran Church.

Congregation members prepare parts of the meal during the days before the dinner and transport the food to the church.  The kitchen will be bustling on the day of the meal with 5 or 6 people prepping, chopping, dicing, peeling, slicing, cooking, or washing dishes prior to the big evening.  It takes more than 20 volunteers to purchase the food, prep, cook, serve, clean dishes, and bus the tables in Parish Hall.

Plenty of big appetites will be coming through the doors on Wednesday night to sample the well-received Lutheran traditional dinner. Some will attend as families, some come alone seeking good fellowship, others to see what this traditional community meal is all about.

“Whatever the reasons, Trinity Lutheran Church will be ready,” The Reverend JMe Lowden said.  “It is always a blessing to support our community.  The meal is all about serving our neighbors near and far, as Christ has taught us to do.”

There is never a charge for any of the Community Meals. For those who choose to donate a love offering, those funds are sent to the Lutheran World Hunger Appeal to help feed hungry people in this country and around the world.

Trinity Lutheran Church will have a nursing student from Germana Community College provide blood pressure checks as a community service project for his degree.  This student has 30 years of medical experience as a paramedic.

Trinity Lutheran Church gathers for in-person worship with Holy Communion each Sunday at 9:30 a.m.

Veterans Day Native Tree Give-Away Sees 360 Young Trees Find New Homes Within 2 Hours



On Veterans Day, November 11, the Front Royal/Warren County Tree Stewards and the Town’s Advisory Committee on Environmental Sustainability (ACES) teamed up for a native tree give-away in the Gazebo area of the Front Royal Village Commons park area in the town’s Historic Downtown Business District. Co-organizer Justin Proctor, ACES member, and Front Royal-Warren County Anti-Litter Council president, reported a rousing success with 360 young trees; we believe all that were available, comprised of six different native species leaving for new homes on citizen properties throughout the town and county. In fact, Proctor said that with a crowd gathering for the 10 a.m. opening, all the trees were gone within about two hours of the scheduled 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. event.

Citizens were ready to add some young trees to their outdoor environment from the 10 a.m. kickoff time. Most, if not all were gone within two hours of the scheduled four-hour event. Courtesy Photos ACES/Tree Stewards

“We’ll have to double our inventory, at least, next year,” Proctor said of the overwhelming show of public interest in the project. He also gave a shout-out to the Virginia Department of Forestry, specifically their Va. Trees for Clean Water program, which provided funding assistance for the event.

As noted in preliminary releases on the event, the goal of the native species tree giveaway is “to continue building out a diverse, native tree canopy across our community.” Organizers noted that tree species offered included Eastern Redbuds, Bald Cypress, Loblolly Pine, Flowering Dogwood, Swamp White Oak, and Red Maple. Tree Stewards present consulted with people on the best trees for their planned planting locations and provided instructions for planting and maintenance as necessary for the new tree “parents”.

If the young tree supply was getting low, a few more with a little age on them were introduced into the mix. Below, participant volunteers, including cadets from R-MA, celebrate a job well done.

Among the long-term benefits of encouraging such new plantings across the community that organizers listed were:

Creating shade and cooler temperatures in the summer while creating a more insulated buffer against cold temperatures in the winter;

Adding beautiful year-round color and structure to your landscape;

Maybe we’ll grow up to be big and pretty like these surrounding trees in and near the Village Commons park area, young saplings may have been thinking as they headed to their new homes.

Providing food and shelter for wildlife, including nesting birds and pollinators;

Improving storm-water control and fighting erosion;

Sequestering carbon and organic matter into the soil;

And stewarding the next generation of trees for the next generations of children and grandchildren to enjoy.

Congratulations to the Tree Stewards and the Town Advisory Committee on Environmental Sustainability on the successful launch of what is planned to be an annual event.
