Fincastle Doin's

Last Thursday night, the Botetourt Historical Society hosted a book signing and art showing at the Botetourt Museum in Fincastle.

Authors Jean Robbins and Gail McMillan were on hand to sign their book, Dear Nannie . . . yours devotedly, Charlie. The book is a combination of history, recipes, and love story.

Artist Mark Woodie, whose detailed artworks of Botetourt County are coveted by many, was also on hand to sell his work.

I went to have my book signed. My mother-in-law had given it to me as a present last Christmas.

They had an impressive turn-out. You can order the book through the Botetourt Historical Society or go by the Museum and pick up a copy.

A board about the book.
It had been a long time since I'd been out. It was nice to see these familiar faces.

  3. It seems that you picked an excellent event to attend, after not being out for so long! Looks like it was a great turn-out, and how nice to spend time with old friends (and new!).
