Shenandoah’s Third Annual First Responders Appreciation Dinner V2 PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 22 January 2018 17:03

Shenandoah’s Third Annual First Responders Appreciation Dinner was held Saturday January 20, 2018 at the Christ United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall at 211 Central Avenue in Shenandoah.

Todd McCoy, Chairman of the Community Focus Group of Christ and Fields United Methodist Churches,  welcomed  all of the first responders to the dinner. Afterwards the Reverend Jonathan J. Lamb gave the blessing.  The Town funded the purchase of the food, and it was prepared by church members and served buffet style.

Mayor Clinton Lucas Jr. thanked the first responders and stressed how the job they do is so important to our community.  The mayor stated, “Were it not for the volunteer responders, it would bankrupt the town to pay for all the services that the volunteers provide.” He mentioned that he is also a member of the Volunteer Fire Department.   He went on to read consider yourself an angel, from Gods words to us.

Billy Foltz recognized the Shenandoah Volunteer Fire Company’s 2018 Officers and associate members.  He also made several service award presentations.

Police Chief Paul Davis announced that 1st Sergeant Bill Wheeler has resigned and that Nick Weaver will be taking his place.

Eugene Shifflett spoke on behalf of the Shenandoah Volunteer Rescue Squad and made a few comments. He stated the Squad is currently looking for more volunteers to include EMT’s, drivers, and associate members. 

The evening was topped off with the drawing of many door prizes, donated by local businesses and members of the church, which included gift items and gift cards. Dennis Zimmerman, Christ Administrative Board Chairman, with the assistance of other members, drew the door prizes. Dennis closed the event with remarks of encouragement to those in attendance.

The First Responders Appreciation Dinner is the teamwork of Christ and Fields United Methodist Churches, and the Shenandoah Town Council. It was started three years ago when church members approached the Council about an appreciation dinner. Together they decided that our community needed to thank and show our appreciation to our first responders for all they do for our community. The first dinner was held in the Shenandoah Community Center and the last two have been held in the Christ United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall.

Pickleball Comes to Page County PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 19 January 2018 17:11

Have you heard of the latest craze called Pickleball!?  It’s the fastest growing sport according to NBC News and locally there is a strong base of players in Rockingham and Augusta Counties and now its coming to Page County!  In a nutshell Pickleball is a paddle sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. Two, three, or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to a wiffle ball, over a net.   

What:  

Pickleball Open Courts

Where: 

Page County High School Gymnasium     

Who:   

Any high school student to senior citizen is welcome to play. (Don’t worry. We will show you how to play.)

When:  

The following Saturdays from 7pm to 9pm

1/27, 2/3, 2/10, 2/17, 2/24, 3/3, 3/10, 3/17, 3/24, 3/31

Why:   

Because it’s only $1 for high school and college students.

Because it’s only $3 for everyone else.

Because we have lots of courts.

Because we have all the equipment needed to play.

Because Mrs. Brumfield at PCHS says it’s a cool sport.

Because it’s a cheap date and you are cheap.

Because it’s laid back and low stress.

Because all ages can enjoy playing.

Because you stay in the “kitchen” too much.

Because you will laugh.

Because you socialize with real people instead of a digital screen.

Because it would be nice to know what a pickleball looks like.

Because it’s the fastest growing sport according to NBC News.

Because it’s a positive kind of addiction.

 

 Contact: Kirk at 540-742-1323 but really no need to contact anyone.

Positive people just show up and play. Negative people please go somewhere else.

All you need to bring is yourself and a pair of sneakers!

Subject: Pickleball at Page County High School

 Hi All,

 As many of you are aware Valley Tennis has been working with Page County High School to offer pickleball on Saturday nights as a positive activity on Saturday nights. Attached is a flyer we can begin sharing. Do not post this flyer in Page County Public Schools until we get school board approval(since we are not a high school organization) but feel free to post the flyer anywhere else or email to whomever you wish.

 Some things that are not on the flyer that I want to share with you.

  • I would like to have someone different each week to collect player fees at a table we will set up so if you are willing to monitor the table for one night please let me know. You can still play... you would just need to make sure everyone that comes in pays their fee. We will also have a simple liability and information form that all new players need to complete before they can play. Here is a link where I will post the signup sheet. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1eZtxxgtwCkGqDkjltp_Ms_rV-5re55z904YbVTHM4sw/edit?usp=sharing
  • I have measured the gym and we can easily fit 6 tennis courts in the gym with at least 9 feet around all sides of each court. We could do 8 courts if needed with 4 feet on each side of the court.
  • We have to roll down painters tape for each court. This does not take long. The painters tape has to be removed at the end of each night.
  • Valley Tennis has purchased two pickleball nets. The PCHS tennis team has two tennis nets we can borrow. I'll ask the Harrisonburg Pickleball group if they can loan us some nets on Saturday nights in case we need them.
  • Valley Tennis has also purchased 8 paddles and will purchase more paddles and nets if needed. Valley Tennis will also supply balls, painters tape and tape measures.
  • I'm honestly not sure how pickleball will go in Page County but there is only one way to find out and that's to offer it and see what happens. There is a strong base of players in Rockingham and Augusta Counties that may be willing to travel to Page County to play as well.
  • The school can cancel pickleball on any night for a school function. In this case I will update the Valley Tennis website www.pvcta.usta.com and send out emails to those that have joined the Valley Tennis email list. To sign up for the emails click on the following link. http://webs.us9.list-manage.com/subscribe?u=52d4dca25739e971e162097fe&id=25959a196c
  • Proceeds will go to Valley Tennis to cover pickleball equipment, insurance, incorporation and association fees.

 Feel free to start sharing the attached flyer with friends, co-workers, groups, etc. Once the school board has approved a flyer I will send the flyer to all schools to share with teachers, coaches and high school students interested in participating.

 We hope this positive activity goes well for our community!

 Thanks!,

Kirk
