The July Fourth Holiday was spectacular!

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Thanks to everyone for three great parades. We had a great group of people walking with us at each location and community members were out in droves. We were in Crozet on July 2, Free Union on July 3, and Earlysville on July 4. Each parade is quite different and each was spectacular in its own way; so much fun for all. Pictures below:

Advance Mills Bridge Party

Saturday, June 25th, 2011

Remember that great day – April 16, 2010, when the Advance Bridge Mills opened? With the support of 500 homeowners sending daily emails to get the attention of VDOT, we managed to get our replacement bridge in a time of meager funds. The importance of the bridge for the safety of local residents and the connectivity of the region helped prioritize the project. (see photos below)

In October 2011, the wooden bridge over Jacob’s Run, 2 miles south of the Advance Mills Bridge, will close for four months. The new bridge will be a concrete box structure and will be 24 feet wide, a large improvement for safety on the corner.
