Absolute auction, paws on parade, games, crafts, food and more is in store in Clarksville
Clarksville’s Harvest Days festival is this weekend, and the good times kick off Friday with two events you won’t want to miss.
For the second time in less than four months, the Clarksville Waste Treatment plant has released raw sewage and storm water into Buggs Island Lake. The most recent occurrence was on Sept. 8 around 4:45 p.m. when 7,500 gallons of wastewater drained into the lake.
Members of the Clarksville community and Southside Regional Library System celebrated the expansion of the Clarksville library with a ribbon cutting ceremony Friday. Renamed the Burnett Library and Learning Center, the facility has 65 percent more space for reading and instructional programs. Doing the ribbon-cutting honors is Joan Burnett (holding scissors), a retired longtime government teacher and wife of the late Benjy Burnett, mayor of Clarksville. Also on hand was Mildred Jolly, seated, who was recognized by program emcee Dr. Charles Lee as a staunch supporter of the Clarksville Area Public Library. After a short program, guests toured the renovated wing, which has been open to the public since mid-July. (Tom McLaughlin photo)
Miss Virginia 2014, Courtney Garrett of Pamplin, hams it up with Captain Jack (a.k.a. Steve Meadows) during an appearance Friday at Virginia Avenue Mall in Clarksville. The good-natured pageant queen traveled to town to help raise funds for the Lake Country SPCA building fund. Her visit coincided with Saturday’s SPCA Pirates Regatta, which went on as planned despite the wet weather. Garrett, who has family ties in Charlotte County, will compete in the Miss America Pageant next month in Atlantic City. . (Susan Kyte photo)
