Historic Buckingham is pleased to announce the winners of its recent fundraising raffle for two reproduction firearms that were donated. The winner of the reproduction Philadelphia derringer was Jeff Motley, of Dillwyn, and the winner of the reproduction Hawken black powder rifle was Rick Caldwell, also of Dillwyn. Many thanks go out to everyone who participated in this fundraiser.

The Buckingham Cattlemen’s Association will hold its 12th Annual Bred Heifer, Young Cow and Bull Sale at 7 p.m. on Friday at the Lynchburg Livestock Market. For more information visit: buckinghamcattlemensassociation.org.

Come to the Curdsville Community Center on Monday at 6:30 p.m. for its monthly dinner meeting and learn about the history, lifestyle and programs of Yogaville, a wonderful and unique part of the county.  The Community Center is located at 122 School Road, just off James Madison Highway., nine miles south of Sprouse’s Corner and two miles north of Sheppards. Bring your favorite covered dish or dessert and enjoy the fellowship and informative presentation.

There will be a Super Bake Sale on Saturday, May 7, at the Dillwyn Food Lion from 8 a.m until there are no more cakes, pies or rolls. Sponsored by the Buckingham Chamber of Commerce, all the money raised will be used for Dillwyn projects. Don’t wait — get delicious desserts and treats for Mother’s Day and help out a great cause.

The Buckingham Public Library, 1140 Main St. in Dillwyn, offers a wide range of services to the community. Included are free beginner computer classes that are held on Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. No prior experience is required, and all classes are open to the public. Classes are taught at a slow and comfortable pace. Moreover, children’s storytime for toddlers is offered Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. at the library. Older children are also welcome. Buckingham public school students at the middle and high school have not been forgotten. Students can find books on those summer reading lists at the library. For more details about any of these programs call (434) 983-3848.

A note about fire safety: do you have a functioning fire extinguisher handy in the kitchen? In addition to the recommended smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, fire extinguishers could mean the difference between being able to stop a small fire or losing your house or your life. This is a timely reminder for those of us living in a largely rural area during an already dangerous fire season.
