Run or walk for a worthy cause

eraseIt’s hard to imagine anything sadder than the loss of an infant or child, and our community is fortunate to have the Sadie Rose Foundation to provide support to bereaved parents. Now you can support the foundation’s efforts by running or walking 5k. The annual Sadie Rose Foundation 5k is set for June 14 at Pence Middle School. You can find details here or register directly online here.

Air service CHO-to-Orlando ends

downloadAs much as I had hoped otherwise, I guess there’s not enough demand to support airline service to Orlando from around here. First we had Frontier flying from Shenandoah Valley to Orlando, and then after that folded we had Allegiant flying from Charlottesville to Orlando. Now we learn that the CHO service will soon be ending, too. At least we can still go through Dulles.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

From your volunteer webmaster:

As 2013 draws to a close, I would like to thank everyone who has had a hand in making bridgewaterva.com a continuing success. When you contribute, or support advertisers, or just view pages, you make the site self-supporting. (Again in 2013, ad revenue more than paid for hosting charges, thanks to you.) So, to everyone, thank you for making Bridgewater a great place to live, and thank you for your contributions to this site. Merry Christmas* and Happy New Year!
