Community Building Parking Area Paved November 2018.
Initial funding for this $24,000 capital improvement was provided by a Seneca Trail Charitable Foundation Grant to the Williamsburg Community Action Group. The WCA applied additional funds received from a Modern Woodmen of America Grant and private donations to extend the paving area all the way to the road. The Williamsburg Ruritan Club donated the final $4,000 funding gap. This paved parking surface is a tremendous help for our many residents and visitors who use canes, walkers, and wheelchairs or otherwise have difficulty traversing gravel surfaces. Many thanks to our generous benefactors, with a special acknowledgement to Jack Goodman who envisioned and spearheaded this project!
Williamsburg Ruritan Club honors Jack Goodman as a 2018 Community Champion
Jack was born here and then, as a lot of young men, left home to find his way in the world. After 50 years, he and his wife, Barbara, have come back to serve the community of his youth. Being a son, brother, husband, father and grandfather of 3 and great-grandfather of 2, he has worn a lot of hats over his years.
Jack worked in the oil/petrochemical field in D. C. and Georgia and now brings his talents to help give a semblance of order to the Community Action and Ruritan Club of Williamsburg. Among the many contributions to our town, he has helped with grant writing, getting new playground equipment, working with others to reset and clean up the local cemeteries, and working with the club for the roadside clean-up, Adopt-a-highway. He helps with the monthly shooting matches, annual Easter Egg hunt, Community Fair, annual pork loin dinner, Community Christmas party, and he is also an active member in Andrew Chapel United Methodist Church.
Keeping our roads beautiful!
The Williamsburg Ruritans, as participants in the West Virginia Adopt-A-Highway Program, collected 17 bags of trash between Williamsburg and Catholic Church Road. Folks, please don’t litter! Thank you Williamsburg Ruritan Club!
