Ruritans donate volleyball court to Greene County

Ruritans Randy Garrison, Andrea Wilkinson and Joanne and Bob Burkholder, Greene County Parks and Recreation Director Julius Bates, Greene County Ruritans Carl Schmitt and Tom Dean, along with Greene County Administrator John Barkley, are present as the Ruritans hand over the volleyball court at the Greene County Community Park to the county of Greene.

The Ruritans spent about $1,200 installing the heavy-duty wooden posts and volleyball net, which can be moved up or down to accommodate different heights and ages.

The volleyball court is open for public use. Bates said if there’s enough interest, Greene County Parks and Recreation will hold volleyball leagues in the future.

Greene County Ruritan members plan to participate in the July 5, 2015 Stanardsville Independence Day parade, and other volunteer duties to assist the Stanardsville Independence Day Committee with their plans for festivities in Stanardsville VA. The Stanardsville Independence Day Committee is raising money to fund the festivities.

Donors, sponsors, and parade float entrants are being sought. A parade is being planned, with prizes for the top three parade entries. Additional events will be determined by level of funding raised. Lots of family activities, local music, some reenactors, local artisans and vendors, and a few surprises are being planned.

The event will be free to the public and the Stanardsville Independence Day Committee hopes to raise enough money to put on a professional fireworks show.

No donation is too large or too small. Naming rights and advertised sponsorships available.

For more information, call Michael at 540-290-8344 or email at Michael.payne.mha@gmail.com.

A crowdfunding website and Facebook page will be created shortly.

Everyone is welcome! Come and share in the hospitality of the small town of Stanardsville!
