WHAT MATTERS WARREN – In this 2 minute video, Bonnie Hart of The Grace Place shares why Front Royal’s historic Main Street is the place to be on upcoming Saturdays. This Saturday, 11/24, is Small Business Saturday with many area businesses participating in the annual movement sponsored by American Express. The following Saturday, 12/1, marks the official ringing in of the FR/WC Christmas spirit starting at noon as the community celebrates “A Whoville Christmas.” Also on that day, from 11:00am to 1:00pm, The Grace Place (201 E Main St) will host Michael Foley, author of “Drinking With The Saints.” Mike will be on site to discuss his new book, “Drinking With Saint Nick”  and will also be signing his books that are beautifully written and would make fantastic Christmas gifts.

Here is the EVENT LINK for Grace Place Book Discussion/Signing.

​”Conversation of Hope” and “Save our Town” video series continue next week

Published

on

Our Community is invited to the 3rd “Conversation of Hope” to be held on Tuesday, August 20th, from 7-8pm, and to the ongoing “Save our Town” video series. Click here to access the Facebook event link.

The WHAT MATTERS community meeting space, “Open House: Meet in the Middle” (213 E. Main Street next to the Daily Grind) will again serve as a meeting place for community members seeking positivity in this time of controversy for our town and county. At 7pm on Tuesday 8/20/19, Police Chief Kayle Magalis, Mayor Matt Tederick and Beth Medved Waller invite all to join them and other community leaders and citizens as we engage in another hour of positive reflections and hope. In the first “Conversation of Hope” held at “Open House” in June, the Chief shared a fitting quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”

During the first June gathering, dozens of community members gathered to share positive comments about moving forward and embracing the good qualities, people and vitality that Warren County has to offer. Here are some of the uplifting words filled with compassion shared during our brief time together during the June 7th “Conversation”:

…Tragedy doesn’t define our community; we have made it through other controversial times, the new police department is an example of the success of a dream 20+ years in the making, don’t feed the beast, negativity breeds negativity, buy local support local, this time shouldn’t change our opinion about what a blessing it is to live here, we must heal relationships with friends and the community because we are hurt and need to acknowledge our pain and rebuild, the term “keep it simple, stupid” can be used to find ways to work together, we must combat darkness with light and stay in the light, we need to be the people we are supposed to be no matter what, we will never stop all the negativity but love will lead us, people who have businesses and work here must be a part of the healing and rebuilding, be a part of the solution, people choose to move here for scenery, values and there are people who stay here for the same reason, this too shall pass, Front Royal is loved for the people, volunteering, service and beauty, shine a light on the great people here and count our blessings, go to prayer and good will prevail, this is a perfect storm for renewal and revival and to come together, a community that doesn’t hide from their faith survives—run to God and add prayer to meetings, lean on God, healing is best when focused on others and for others, be compassionate…

July’s “Conversation of Hope” was also inspiring as guests reminisced and shared hope for positive change in our community. Police Chief, Kahle Magalis, encouraged us to focus on the wellness of the community, not just the sickness, and suggested that the new hospital progress can remind us to do just that. He also said that he’s very pleased with the working relationship the FR Police Department and the WC Sheriff’s office have in trying to embrace collaboration and cooperation. It was discussed that some of our current issues are bringing things to light that need to be addressed and that the dealing with those issues will have a positive impact. In addition, attendees spent much of the time reminiscing about favorite FR/WC memories from the old days of every weekend Skyline Drive traffic & picnics in the park, the Sesquicentennial pageant event in 1986, the Red Stock and Vollies that the hospital hosted, and our hope that another community-wide event could materialize (perhaps a canoe event). It was a heartwarming gathering!

Please join us Tuesday, August 20th, at 7pm, to share and witness more encouraging conversations.

George McIntyre, Craig Laird and FRIBA also announce the next upcoming opportunity to meet to continue the “Save our Town” video series that began in May month with a strong attendance. On August 22nd, September 26th and October 24th, from 11:30-1pm, The Front Royal Independent Business Alliance will again host a free screening in the series featuring Becky McCray and Deb Brown from SaveYour.Town. The video series is held at the WHAT MATTERS Community Meeting Space, Open House: Meet in the Middle (213 E. Main St. & adjacent to the Daily Grind Coffee Shop).

“Too often, pessimists shoot down your ideas. But you have great ideas, a vision of what your town could be. How do you start making things happen? Learn the practical steps you can take to change attitudes, draw a crowd of supporters, improve the environment and create more connections, no matter what the pessimists say or do,” said McCray.

The video series is designed to show our community new ways to work together towards positive change. There is no charge to attend this screening and a lively discussion is planned to follow. The Apple House will provide brown bag lunches for $5 and complimentary coffee/tea/water is available at Open House. The gathering will begin at 11:30 and video will start promptly at noon. “Together we’ll work through the process to make your town more Idea Friendly. We’ll show you how to Gather Your Crowd, Make Connections and Take Small Steps. It all adds up to creating the kind of town you want to live in,” said Brown.

Learn more about Brown and McCray HERE.

*Please note that these gatherings will be ones of positivity, not negativity. Politics and current events will not be discussed—instead we will remind ourselves why we love our community and provide an opportunity to briefly join together those who care together in the spirit of hope…

Rotary Group study exchange announcement

Published

on

Attention Rotarians and Non-Rotarians interested in representing our district for a month in Turkey: CLICK HERE to learn about the GSE Rotary sponsored trip abroad!

Are you ready for an amazing opportunity? Well, here it is – GROUP STUDY EXCHANGE TO TURKEY! Our District 7570 is now accepting team leader and team member applications for this month-long Rotary sponsored trip abroad!

Immediate Past District Governor, George Karnes of Front Royal, was a GSE Team member to Taiwan in 2013 and was blown away by the amazing experience. Rotary Club of the Northern Shenandoah Valley (The Area ONE|ders) President, Doug Sexton of Linden, was also a GSE Team Member (in 2018) and learned much from the opportunity. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A ROTARIAN TO BE A TEAM MEMBER – in fact, Doug was not, but he was inspired to become a charter member of a new club after making wonderful memories being embraced as family by Rotarians in the Caribbean! These two local GSE alumni would be happy to discuss the program with interested prospects.

Click these links to watch these WHAT MATTERS interviews about the Caribbean 2018 experience and a pre-departure interview with this year’s GSE team to Taiwan:

Applicants for the team leader position must be a Rotarian. Team member applicants should be 40 years of age or younger and, if a Rotarian, have five years or less of service in Rotary.


ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Group Study Exchange (GSE) program is a unique cultural and vocational exchange opportunity for young business and professional men and women in their initial years of professional life. Rotary districts in different countries are paired to send and receive professional study groups of four to six non-Rotarian team members and one Rotarian team leader to travel for four to six weeks, staying in the homes of Rotarians when possible. Launched in 1965, this dynamic program has built a successful track record at the personal, community, and international level. With good planning, a goal-driven itinerary, and active participation of dedicated Rotarians, a GSE can be an exceptional educational experience for both the visiting GSE team and local Rotarians. Goals and Objectives The GSE program is designed to develop professional and leadership skills among young adults, so that they can address the needs of their communities and an increasingly global workplace. GSE participants follow an extensive and rigorous program of international travel and team activities. • Vocational visits — Provide opportunities to observe vocations as practiced in another country — Impact team members’ long-term careers through exchange of ideas in their respective fields • Cultural experiences — Allow participants to study another country and its people, language, and institutions through experiences in an organized and meaningful host program — Promote an appreciation of cultural diversity worldwide • Fellowship opportunities — Encourage team members and hosts to meet, communicate, and live with each other in a spirit of fellowship and goodwill — Consider each other’s problems, aspirations, and community concerns — Foster lasting friendships and international understanding • Rotarian involvement — Offers Rotarians specific, practical, and meaningful opportunities for international service by providing young, formative professionals a different perspective of their vocation in another country and culture *Information from the 2018 GSE Facebook Group Page

Learn more and apply at http://www.rotary7570.org/GSE2 and discover the impact Rotary is making locally and globally at www.rotary.org. The community is invited to learn more about becoming a Rotarian by contacting or visiting any of our area clubs!

Skyline High School’s “Bag & Book” fundraiser to raise awareness about ocean pollution

Published

on

School is back in session and Skyline High School’s Environmental Science, Ecology, and Green Team is back in action in their dedication to help spread awareness of environmental issues in Warren County. In this WHAT MATTERS video, Kara Lewallen, of Skyline High’s Green Team, explains an initiative to raise funds and spread the word about the dangers of plastic in our ocean waters. This buy one/give one “Bag & Book” fundraiser idea came to fruition from a student’s idea after learning about ocean pollution. According to Lewallen, “In the Environmental Science, Ecology, and Green Team, we are challenged to not only learn about the world around us, but also to take action and help make a positive difference whenever we can. When students have ideas about how we can make a positive difference, they add them to our Action Plan Beaker.”

The goal of this initiative is to sell organic, fair trade, reusable grocery bags along with a children’s book about an aquatic-based animal that has suffered because of our plastic pollution. “For each bag/book combo we sell, we will give a bag/book combo to a kindergartner in Warren County to help spread the word about keeping plastics out of our waterways,” added Lewallen. For $35, you can receive a bag (offered in blue, yellow, or green) and a book (either about a whale, puffin, or sea turtle). These bags and books make a practical gift and a fantastic opportunity to create a foundation of environmental awareness in the heart of the young recipient who will receive one of three colorful bags and one of three educational books.

The group hopes to sell 400 bags, which would enable all area kindergartners to receive a bag and book and all Skyline Environmental Science, Ecology, and Green Team students to realize that we all have a role to play in protecting our environment. How wonderful is it for them to learn that by working together, we each can make a difference. Contact Lewallen at klewallen@wcps.k12.va.us to purchase a bag and book or to find out how you can support her and her colleagues efforts to educate area students about the importance of environmental advocacy. Bags and books can also be purchased at Samuel’s Public Library.

Elizabeth B. Sherman’s 120th birthday memorial celebration

Published

on

All are invited to join the community in celebrating the legacy of the late Dr. Elizabeth B. Sherman on her 120th birthday: Saturday, August 10th, 2019! Join her niece, Dr. Ellen Perricci (along with her husband Mike), as they return home to Front Royal to honor the memory of the remarkable woman who dedicated her life to Front Royal/Warren County. Stop by the Front Royal Main Street Gazebo from 3:30-5:30, for this free event, to reminisce and pay tribute to Dr. Sherman’s many legacies. Listen to fantastic musical tributes, including a performance by local harpist John Kovac.

Born in 1899, Dr. Sherman left this world in 1997, but her contributions to the community carry on. She graduated at the top of her class from University of Maryland Medical School in 1926, as one of the first women to finish four years of medical school. She eventually built her own medical office building which still stands at the corner of 4th and Virginia Avenue in Front Royal. In 1965, she retired from obstetrics after delivering over 2,200 babies. She retired from medical practice at 91 years old in 1990, and although she never married or had children of her own, she dedicated all of her time to others, her community, her church (The Front Royal United Methodist Church) and charity work.

Let’s honor the memory of one of the finest, most remarkable women to have ever lived in Front Royal. Don’t miss this opportunity to join together as a community, especially in this time of transition, to thank those who have gone before us while pledging to carry on the work they began to make the community a place we’re proud to call home.
