Upcoming Events

BLUEGRASS FESTIVAL

The tenth annual South Branch Valley Bluegrass Festival and Fireworks will be held on Saturday, June 30, 2018, at the Wapocoma Campground on South Branch River Road, south of Romney, with the first acts set to appear at 11:00 a.m. Headlining this year’s Festival will be Larry Cordle and his band Lonesome Standard Time. Joining Larry on the stage will be Lonesome River Band, Bud’s Collective, Sideline, and two more local bands. There will also be great food and crafts, a Kids’ Corner for the youngsters, and one of the finest fireworks shows in the area at the conclusion of the Festival. Admission to the Festival is free, but there is a $10 parking fee. No pets, ATV’s, golf carts, or alcohol allowed in the concert area. Also, tents and high-backed chairs are prohibited in the concert area. Mark your calendars right now so you don’t miss this great event. I know you’ll be glad that you did!

 

WALK TO BE FIT

Our Walk To Be Fit Program is over for 2017. In all, we had over 100 walkers participate in the program, and 60 of them earned at least one prize for reaching one of our milestones. We wish to thank our corporate sponsors, FNB Bank and the Hampshire Wellness and Fitness Center. Without their help, Walk To Be Fit wouldn’t be possible. Congratulations go out to our four Grand Prize winners. Jean Genua, a participant every year since the program started, won the biggest prize, a one-night stay for two at beautiful Capon Springs Resort. Karina Gray walked off with the handcrafted wood chest that was donated by B&B Woodcraft Designs. Ann White captured the $50 gift certificate from Main Street Grill, and Donna Brown won the $25 gift certificate from Dairy Queen. If you earned a prize in the program, we should have contacted you by now to find out where and when you can receive your reward. If you think you earned a prize and you haven’t heard from us yet, just give us a call at (304) 822-7300 any weekday between 9:00 and 1:00 or email us at hampshirecoparks@hotmail.com and let us know. It is not our intention that anyone who has earned a prize be overlooked. Just because Walk To Be Fit is over for another year, that doesn’t mean that your exercise ends with the program. There will still be many more afternoons when you can get out and take a relaxing walk in the fresh air.
