Kudos To You!
Paving of The Community Building Parking Lot started on November 7.
Paving will continue toward the picnic shelter and will hopefully be completed by Saturday. Funding was provided by a Seneca Trail Charitable Foundation Grant to the Williamsburg Community Action Group specifically for this project. The WCA voted to use additional funds received from a Modern Woodmen of America Grant to ext7end the planned paving area all the way to the road. Having a paved parking area will be a tremendous help for our many visitors and residents who have difficulty crossing gravel surfaces. Thank you!
Bluegrass Is Back!
The Williamsburg Volunteer Fire Deparment hosted their first annual Pig Pickin Bluegrass Festival fundraiser on the most perfect autumn evening imaginable. Three notable bands played from early evening through late darkness, inspiring some to dance and others to kick back in their portable loungers and enjoy. The food was great and the music awesome! Thank you WVFD!
Loving Our Beautiful Roadways
The Williamsburg 4H Flying Falcons and the Williamsburg Ruritan Club turned out for a fall cleaning of our scenic roadways. Bottles, cans, and debris were picked up and bagged for the dump. Many thanks to all who helped!
Kitchen Expansion Completed!
The kitchen wall in the Community Building has been moved out five feet to give much needed workspace behind the service windows. Room for more volunteeers! Thank you WCA member Jack Goodman for securing the grant and overseeing the work!
4H Paints The Town!
The Williamsburg 4-H Flying Falcons have really spruced up the place this summer! THREE Williamsburg signs have been repainted, plus the marquee framework holding one of the signs, plus their own 4-H sign. And so then someone just had to come along and paint the flagpole, too! Hope you have noticed how much brighter things are in our community center. Thank you 4-H!
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.
Community volunteers leveled and repaired grave markers at the Catholic Church Cemetary and the Andrew Chapel United Methodist Church Cemetary on 5-26-2018. Different cemeteries are selected each spring for extra attention.
44 Community Smoke Detectors Installed
In conjunction with the Red Cross “Sound the Alarm” program, volunteer WART and WVFD members installed another 44 FREE smoke detectors in homes in the Williamsurg, Trout, Friars Hill, and Cornstalk area. You know who you are, thank you!
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!
New Stove At The Community Building Provided by 4H and Ruritans
Sometimes the big gas stove is too big and too hot. But the smaller electric stove wore out beyond repair. Fortunately, the 4H and the Ruritans stepped up to purchase a new stove! Many thanks to our caring community!
