Fun Day is set for Saturday

Published 5:14 am Thursday, May 19, 2016

The Dillwyn Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary is holding a Fun Day and Corn Hole Tournament Saturday — rain or shine — at the Dillwyn Fire House.

Registration is from 8:30-10:30 a.m. with games beginning at 11 a.m.

The fee is $40 per team with first and second place prizes going to the winners. There will also be food and drinks, music, a 50/50 raffle, games and prizes for kids — all to benefit the Dillwyn Volunteer Fire Department.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Buckingham Cruise-Ins will now be held at Sprouse’s Garage, 43 Sprouse’s Garage Road, Dillwyn, at the intersection of Routes 15 and 60. Therefore, the Saturday “Gone but not forgotten” vehicle evening will be held at this new location.

For more information contact Wayne Bryant at (434) 547-5568. Beginning at noon, there will also be the Wayne Rose Memorial Car Show. For questions about the Car Show, please call (434) 983-2523.

Here is some timely information concerning upcoming elections in Buckingham County. There will not be a June primary in Buckingham since both the Democratic Party and the Republican Party are selecting their candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in a convention. The next election in Buckingham County will be the Presidential Election on Tuesday, Nov. 8. In addition to the offices of U.S. president and vice-president, Buckingham voters will be voting on a candidate to represent us as our Fifth District Congressman in the U.S. House of Representatives. Robert Hurt, the incumbent congressman from our district, has announced he will not be seeking re-election. Also on the ballot in November will be two proposed amendments to the Virginia Constitution.

Two local races will also be on the ballot in November: voters in District 4, Maysville Precinct, will be electing a school board member, and voters in the Town of Dillwyn will be electing a town council member. If you have any questions about elections, how to register to vote, your eligibility or where to vote, please contact the registrar’s office at (434) 969-4304.
