The Hawksbill Greenway Foundation recently received a donation of $1000 from VF Jeanswear. This was part of a Sustainability award that the VF Jeanswear Luray facility received for being a Zero Waste Facility in 2015. As part of the award, they were able to donate to a “Green Project” in our community. The Foundation is most grateful for the donation.   READ MORE

Local Boy Scouts have made  improvements at Lake Arrowhead, including re-roofing the Edwin Smith Boy Scout Adirondacks.  Our scouts are also working on replacing a bridge along the trail at Lake Arrowhead that had previously washed out after a storm.

 

Festival of spring - 2018

We’ve been working extremely hard over the last few months on our new and improved Festival of Spring websiteNew for this year—vendors are now able to register completely ONLINE!  Head on over to our new festival website at www.festivalofspringluray.com to see what else is new!  You’ll also notice that this year’s festival has a new venue layout.  Due to the Main Street Bridge being under construction next year, we had to make a few adjustments. Refer to the “maps” tab on our website to view the new venue layout.

 

For our festival this year, we are putting the focus on having more quality vendors!  We invite ALL local artisans and craft vendors to come join us. We appreciate local businesses and what they do for our community.  If you are a local artisan or craft vendor who would like to be a part of our 2018 Festival of Spring, visit our website to register!   We look forward to seeing you there on May 5th, 2018.
