2012 Blue Ridge Mountain Calendar

We’ve just printed our annual Blue Ridge Mountain calendars for 2012, featuring images of our town and county, including winter scenes of Laurel Springs, spring and summer views at the New River and along the Parkway, and autumn in the Stratford Community and on Waterfall Road.

Also included is a photo from a presentation by Alleghany Community Theatre in the Alleghany County Courthouse, as well as a beaver dam on Prathers Creek, and the historic Independence, VA Courthouse.

The calendars can be purchased from The Sparta Store and Jack of All Trades (372-6000).
