Fincastle Frolic

Last Friday, August 23, the Town of Fincastle hosted something they called the "Fincastle Frolic." It was basically an open house of about 15 businesses, some historic sites, and the county courthouse.
 
I estimate about 200 people or so turned out.
 

 
This is my friend Rena, who works at the library. The library stayed open and she was enjoying the guitar player.

 
They served refreshments. I'm a big library supporter and I baked and supplied some of those cookies.
 
 
Mr. Hearn played his guitar and sang songs.
 
 
 
Fincastle is a very lovely little town.
 
 
It was a beautiful evening and folks seemed to enjoy strolling the streets.
 
 
Musicians played at various locations, adding to the fun.
 
 
My friend Mary Beth, who is an acupuncturist, and her daughter.
 
The Sunshine House had children's activities.
 
 
My friend Lee, who runs the Sunshine House.
 
 
 
The Fincastle Herald office. The fellow on the right is the editor, Ed. Yes, that is really his name. Ed the editor.
 
 
 
My friend Peggy, one of the town's elegant ladies.
 
 
Young street musicians. The girl in the black hair is the daughter of my friend Cathy.
 
 
A shot of the street. That's Cathy on the right, in black and with a camera.
 
 
Balloons marked the entrance to the courthouse, where documents signed by illustrious national founders such as Thomas Jefferson and George Washington were on display.
 
 
I thought it was a nice little event, and it was good to see folks wandering about the town. Generally Fincastle rolls up the sidewalks at 6 p.m. and the town stands empty.

  7. I heard Mr. Hearn was great. We keep talking about playing guitars together, but never manage to do so. I hope they do it again next year!
