Happy trails in Flint Hill, thanks to . . .

Rappahannock News - - EDITORIAL & OPINION -

Again, this year, the Flint Hill fire depart­ment would like to ex­press its heart­felt thanks to all those who worked on the fifth an­nual ben­e­fit trail ride. With the threat of Hur­ri­cane Sandy loom­ing, we closed up a lit­tle ear­lier on Sun­day than we nor­mally would have, but, all in all, the weather held off and this trail ride was one of the big­gest and best we have ever had.

Spe­cial thanks go to Deb­o­rah and Bob Miloslavic­h who were tire­less in their ef­forts to make this event suc­cess­ful. Au­dra Dickey, Janet Bor­den and Fran Kreb­ser also as­sisted, and a big shout out goes to Sgt. Heinz and his faith­ful helpers who pre­pared and served a won­der­ful din­ner Satur­day night.

Thanks to Con­nie Huff-Har­ris who col­lected items for door prizes from the Inn at Lit­tle Wash­ing­ton, Rap­pa­han­nock Cel­lars, The Coun­try Cafe, Horse-n-Hound, Econ­omy Pest Con­trol, South­ern States of Front Royal, CFC Farm & Home Cen­ter in Sper­ryville, Tula’s Off Main and Grif­fin Tav­ern.

We also had do­na­tions of equip­ment or prod­ucts from Rick’s Weld­ing, Costello Farm Ser­vices, Lee’s Or­chards, Set­tle’s Gro­cery and Adams meats. And spe­cial thanks to community mem­bers like John and Dee Vest, John Alexan­der, Kathy Russo and all the won­der­ful peo­ple who baked cakes and cook­ies for dessert for the Satur­day din­ner. And, of course, the own­ers of the beau­ti­ful farms over which the 17 miles of trail ran: Hard Rock Farms, Red Fox Run, Pa­tria, Wake­field Manor and Bolton Branch Farm.

And while we ex­pect that our mem­ber vol­un­teers in the depart­ment would be there, I have to say we had a won­der­ful turnout of our own peo­ple who put in a great ef­fort. It was a plea­sure to see it all come to­gether. Thanks to ev­ery­one for an out­stand­ing event. Our fire depart­ment and our community thank you, one and all.
