A Day For Jarrett

This is a dedicated group of local citizens trying to make a difference for the children in our community with special needs. Last year they did an event called "A Day For Jarrett", in honor of Jarrett Frush. Jarrett Frush is an eight year old boy with severe cerebral palsy. The event last year had a police escorted motorcycle ride, vendors, a carnival and clowns for all the families to enjoy. The money raised was for Cerebral Palsy of Virginia located in Virginia Beach.

This year the groups desire is to build an all inclusive playground for the children in the Gloucester and surrounding communities, siting that these types of playgrounds are few and far between but are becoming a much needed asset to all communities. The playground design is for children with different abilities and they can learn, play and enjoy the interaction with others. It will be 100% wheelchair accessible.

This Year's Event

This year's event is being held on September 27th, at the Soccer Fields behind EVB and Damon & Co, Route 17, Gloucester, VA.

The event starts at 11:00 AM and will go until 7:00 PM.

There will be a "Ride with the guys II" with the guys from Rockers Originals at 8:00 AM to kick off the event and will have a police escort. To sign up to ride with this group, please go to Damon & Co.

Daily Press News Feed

we just added a Daily Press News Feed to the bottom of the page but we really do not like the way it looks and it takes up a lot of space. However, we want to know what you think. We are looking for better looking feeds for local news and will continue to experiment until we have a nice looking and practical feed. Please do not hesitate to comment.  This is an RSS Feed.  Gloucester, VA Links and News.  GVLN Website.

Big Gloucester County Issue

This is a big Gloucester County issue. I do not have all the facts of the case so I do not take sides having been a para legal in the past. I will be happy to post both sides of the issue, and let both the courts and the public make their own respective verdicts.  Gloucester, VA Links and News.  GVLN Website.

Gloucester Wal Mart

Technically speaking, what you see in this video is a big no no. Wal Mart does not allow cameras to be used in their stores and if they had caught the person who did this, they would have made sure this file never made it to this point. My opinion? It was not done in anyway that would harm Wal Mart, so I have no issues posting it here, in case you have not seen it.
