Town Tip Thursday, a WHAT MATTERS Initiative
TIP: Visit Truss’D on Main Street, your Taste Buds will THANK YOU!

In just twelve days, Happy Creek Eatery (located at 117 E. Main Street in historic downtown Front Royal) transformed into Truss’D, a charming restaurant with similarly delectable offerings that include an extensive all-day brunch menu. Open every day except Wednesdays from 8am-4pm, chefs and co-owners Allan Brown and Katie Teague are thrilled to offer gluten free, vegan and unique house-made, creative options to downtown visitors. They specialize in American classics with an added twist and will cater to dietary restrictions of their guests. From omelets to french toast, from crepes to veggie hash, from chicken waffles to avocado toast, from BBQ chicken to burgers, from eggs Benedict to biscuits and gravy, and from “Cheesy Spud Cakes” to “Crack Cauliflower,” their unique menu speaks to even the pickiest cravings. An ideal spot for vegans or those seeking gluten free options, they also offer kid portions upon request. With every bite, you’ll taste the love and attention they’ve devoted to creating a memorable dining experience.

Don’t forget to include Truss’D in your Valentine’s Day plans. Book quickly before tickets sell out to enjoy their savory special dinner menu that includes scallops, fillet, figs and chocolate (details and full menu are available on Facebook under this event page). The evening will kick start their dinner offerings, and they’ll be sharing more information about what we can expect from the chef soon.

Find Truss’D on Facebook and be sure to like their page so you will see the remarkable photos they’ve been sharing of their edible creations. Also be sure to stop by for a taste of reasonably priced, delicious food pairings. Whether dining in or carrying out, your taste buds will appreciate learning about what chef’s Katie and Allan have to offer. View their full menu at www.trussd.business.site.

A peek inside the former Warren Paint & Supply

Published

on

WHAT MATTERS Warren: This video was recorded during the HGTV Home Town Takeover video filming as Dr. Craig Zunka, D.D.S reminisces about the store his father ran and owned for more than 60 years. Constructed during the Civil War in 1863, 415 E. Main Street was built as the first downtown Front Royal Weaver’s department store building. It was constructed after the Weaver’s store, that was originally located in Bentonville, burned to the ground (apparently Bentonville was expected to be bustling and the department store was initially opened there). Later, the store moved farther west on Main Street, and in the early 1930’s the building became a supply store. His father bought the property in 1946 and ran it until 2010ish.

Dr. Zunka fondly recalls that due to its location across from the train station and near the Feed Mill, the store was “the heartbeat of this end of main street.” In the 1960’s his father expanded store offerings to include picture framing and art supplies, and it was a thriving establishment until it closed about 10 years ago. The property is currently listed for sale for $349,500 by Mike Silek and Suzanne Conrad who can be reached at Adams-Nelson & Associates at 540-667-2424.

A peek inside the former Simonpietri’s gift shop

Published

on

WHAT MATTERS Warren: This video was recorded during the HGTV Home Town Takeover video filming for those of us who fondly remember the old Simonpietri’s (and for those who don’t who have often wondered what the “story” is behind the dilapidated building on the way to Skyline Drive). Enjoy this peek inside the once thriving corner with commercial Realtor, Bill Barnett (of Edward Ogletree JR. Commercial Realty Services), who shares some history about the property he has listed for $750,000. He encourages buyers to “bring an offer” and that Front Royal/Warren County is very pro-business. He shares that local government has worked well with the many investors who contact him because they see the potential and existing opportunities 22630 has to offer. Historic Main Street’s recent enhancements prove the fact that Front Royal is appealing to entrepreneurs. Bill has sold 10 properties on Main Street in the last 3 years himself.

Simonpietri’s was originally constructed in the 1950’s as a souvenir and gift shop for the newly constructed Skyline Drive. It was quite the tourist destination due to its location so close to the entrance of the national park, Skyline Caverns and the Shenandoah River. For more information, contact billbarnett@centurylink.net or 540-671-0278.

Click to watch the community video submission for HGTV’s Home Town Takeover

Published

on

WHAT MATTERS WARREN: Thanks to all who participated in our mission to encourage HGTV to choose Front Royal for their new series for which The Home and Garden Network was accepting nominations in preparation for its largest ever renovation project, “Home Town Takeover.” Social media was flooded with uplifting discussions, photos, stories and videos about our 22630, and we hope people will continue to share local footage, pictures and inspiring comments about our community on the Facebook page “FRONT ROYAL HOME TOWN TAKEOVER.” The contest has concluded, and according to the HGTV website, applications are currently under review.

Special thanks to local social media strategist, Mitchell Smith (of Expressed Legacy Marketing), who led our social media campaign and brilliantly crafted our video submission. He had this to say about the project in which he devoted countless hours in collecting interviews and creating our message: “It made me fall in love with the town even more. I learned so much about the rich history of Front Royal and got to experience, first hand, the community coming together for a noble cause.”

Much of the history he discovered was from local historian and five-year Front Royal resident, Josh Ingram. Josh shared, “Front Royal has always been a town that comes back stronger after every setback it’s endured. Since its inception, it’s been built, desolated, and re-surged on the most heavily contested soil that this country has ever fought on or for. Although times have changed in its 250 years, there are those who still fervently believe in its perseverance… this video says so.” Melanie Salins, who spearheaded the local collaboration efforts added, “I have to say that this experience has made me fall in love even more with our community! I am so thankful for where we live. And hope this is the first step in healing our town!”

Published

WHAT MATTERS Warren: Dr. Sherri brings you Thriving Thoughts: Fresh ways of thinking, feeling, and doing to keep your mind, and your heart, on the path of thriving every day.

Let’s face it. Sometimes we feel like we’re just surviving. We want to know better, so we will do better. Yet, prioritizing personal growth and development by way of thick small-print books, and 20-minute Ted talks, seems like far-fetched fantasy.

So, Dr. Sherri (former Clinical Psychologist turned podcast host, thought coach, speaker, and author) developed Thriving Thoughts Texts to bring you proven, inspirational, educational, and applicable tips to transform your thought world and yield a life where you stop surviving and start thriving!

Text THRIVE to 540-369-2139 to sign up for Thriving Thoughts Texts. You’ll receive a welcome message from Dr. Sherri and 3 Thriving Thoughts Texts per week. It really is that simple. And, all of your texts come directly from Dr. Sherri who is the expert on offering powerful tips, in small chunks, for transforming your thoughts and your life, and will personally challenge you to immediately and consistently apply your thriving thoughts to every-day experiences.

What are you waiting for? Encouragement, accountability, and expertise right to your phone. Three times per week! And, of course, sharing of Dr. Sherri’s Thriving Thoughts Texts is highly recommended (You’ll definitely want to forward to a friend)! Text THRIVE to 540-369-2139 today!

About Dr. Sherri:
Dr. Sherri champions women to thrive in thought and life, in any and every circumstance! Through thought coaching, writing, speaking, and hosting her podcast, Thriving Thoughts with Dr. Sherri, she proclaims the message that women have the influence to speak truth over the little lies that threaten our purpose, fulfillment and, above all, our ability to thrive!

She’s live every Tuesday at 12:30 with a message on thriving), writing her first solo book, ‘Little Lies Big Truths.’ “Every day, through coaching, writing, teaching, and now hosting a podcast, I get to share my gifts. I get to develop others. I get to be a mirror to them that shows them the passion and purpose they have to fulfill, so they too can thrive. It’s worth every risk I’ve ever taken!”

Her remarkable story is one of uncovering her purpose, embracing her gifts and striving to inspire other women to do the same. She’s recently launched season two of ‘Thriving Thoughts: Little Lies/Big Truths’ that stream on Spotify and Apple Podcasts. She’s passionate about her newest project, “Every day, a woman reaches out to me to tell me how meaningful a particular episode is to her. That’s beyond gratifying. I could never have reached this many women had I stayed on my therapist’s couch at Chester Street.”

To learn more, read the remarkable stories shared, or nominate someone to be featured in one of her weekly episodes, women are invited to join her closed Facebook group, Thriving Thought Casters. It’s also easy to subscribe to the weekly podcast. WHAT MATTER’S Beth Medved Waller, was a guest on the new podcast. She spoke of the life changes she’s made the past 5 years and a concept that is the basis of a book she’s writing called, ‘Overcoming Abundance’. Her interview can be found here.

A note from Dr. Sherri:
I am convinced that our minds must be equipped with love, crafted with discipline, and transformed with grace to live the life we are intended. Women, including myself, have invested precious energy perfecting an unfit mind, one that is fueled by critique, pessimism, and unworthiness, all of which are adversaries to fulfillment, happiness, and ultimately hope. All women are susceptible to a malignancy of the mind; and all women are uniquely designed, called to a purpose, and deserving of a mind, and life, that thrives.

A Conversation of HGTV Home Town Takeover

Published

on

The 7th monthly Conversation of Hope was held on Tuesday night and brought inspired residents together to discuss the recent community collaboration to land Front Royal as the star of the hit HGTV series, “Home Town.”   At 7pm on the 4th Tuesday of each month, community leaders and citizens gather at the WHAT MATTERS community meeting space, “Open House: Meet in the Middle” (213 E. Main Street next to the Daily Grind) to engage in one hour of positive reflections and hope. This week’s conversation focused on continuing the conversations of hope to include the local HGTV Hometown Takeover application efforts (info at: hgtvhometowntakeover.com and on our Facebook page Front Royal Home Town Takeover).

In this video, Melanie Salins and Beth Waller share an update about the HGTV Home Town Takeover efforts and encourage EVERY citizen to log online and complete the simple application process to apply individually (a video submission is optional and people can type and entry, provide photos and/or a simple video). Though Mitchell Smith has volunteered to put the community entry together that represents the MANY reasons we should be chosen, we are strongly encouraging EVERYONE to submit their own videos (sharing individual reasons why FR should WIN)! What are you passionate about in our Hometown? What do you love most about our community–history, nature, attractions, the people…. the list is too large for just one video! WHY should HGTV select our community? LET’S ALL TELL THEM!

Special thanks to the many citizens who have shared photos, ideas, videos and feedback via Facebook! The deadline for submitting information that can be included in our community submission is Friday 1/31 to allow Mitchell time to create the video. However, we are hoping that our community continues the heart-warming dialogue and sharing on the Facebook page long after the contest is over!

Mark your calendars for the next “Conversation of Hope” scheduled for February 25th at 7pm at the WHAT MATTERS community meeting space, OPEN HOUSE. And please submit your entry to HGTV by the February 7th deadline (and encourage your friends to do the same)!
