Ramey tapped for part-time position as Halifax Events Coordinator
SoVaNow.com / February 14, 2014Halifax Town Council Tuesday night unanimously approved the hiring of Rebecca Ramey as Town Events Coordinator, a part-time position. Ramey, who was chosen from a field of eight candidates, will work with Town Manager Carl Espy and assistant town manager Denise Barksdale on several special events, beginning with the annual Earth Day celebration set for Saturday, April 26.
Ramey and her husband Scott moved to the Vernon Hill community eight years ago. She has a small business, Ohm Yoga Center, located in the town.
Business Development Committee chairman Kristy Johnson said, “I am thrilled that Rebecca has agreed to take the events coordinator position. Her enthusiasm and passion for Halifax will truly help us to continue to build on the success of past events.”
Ramey is active in the community as a member of the Halifax Beekeepers Association, the Halifax Village Association and the Banister River Garden Club.
Espy noted that Ramey has already started making calls to existing businesses, local volunteers, art groups, corporate sponsors, clubs and organizations that have expressed an interest in supporting the Earth Day celebration set for Saturday, April 26.
Ramey added, “I look forward to the Village Association’s community clock project getting underway as the centerpiece of the Town of Halifax Farmer’s Market and event area downtown and as the courthouse renovations begin and the Banister River Blueways project develops, I hope that with the community’s support, I will build upon what the previous event coordinators have put together.
“We will expand the venues for each event in unique ways to celebrate the area’s bountiful resources, creative talent and rural way of life.” 343
