Front Royal is Quietly Amazing

I really adore our little adopted hometown of Front Royal.  But it can be sneaky in its ways!  You have to do a little searching to find out about the great events that happen here.  Luckily, my friend Andi Robinson keeps posting suggestions on her blog,  Between her blog, the newspapers,, Front Royal Women’s Resource Center newsletters, and Facebook status updates, I am starting to feel like I have a sense of what’s going on around town. 

The Front Royal – Warren County John Marshall Speaker Series kicks off Tuesday April 24th at 7pm at the Warren County Community Center.  Their first speaker is Holocaust survivor Marcel Drimer. Check their Facebook page:  I cannot begin to express how much I am looking forward to attending this event and listening to Mr. Drimer speak with us.   

I am also excited to help out the Front Royal Women's Resource Center's group during the UNITED WAY OF FRONT ROYAL-WARREN COUNTY DAY OF CARING on Friday April 27th from 8am to 4pm.  Volunteers work together to paint, haul trash, prune, and plant flowers among other jobs. Skilled volunteers, including carpenters, electricians and plumbers are especially needed.  As a thank you, sponsors and volunteers are all invited to attend our annual dinner that evening. Beer, wine and lots of good eats!  For more information contact the United Way office: 540-635-3636 or 

Setting off on Fox Hollow Trail
It's National Park Week!  Free admission to all 397 National Parks from April 21st to April 29th.  We happen to have a pretty amazing National Park just down the road, Shenandoah National Park.  There are plenty of hikes whether you are looking for one that it easy, or one that is more challenging.  You can hike to a waterfall (like Dark Hallow Falls), do a stroller-friendly hike (like the Limberlost Trail), or a hike that isn't far up on the Drive (like Fox Hollow). 

Take some time out to enjoy our town this week!
