OCT 10-12: 22nd Annual Birding & Wildlife Festival Celebrates Fall Migration

There is no better place to experience the spectacular phenomenon of fall migration than the Eastern Shore of Virginia.  During the fall months, millions of songbirds, hawks, shorebirds, butterflies, and dragonflies migrate through the narrow Delmarva Peninsula on their long journey south to warmer wintering grounds.  The Eastern Shore Birding & Wildlife Festival brings you closer to nature and closer to the birds with guided hikes, family activities and boat trips throughout much of the Eastern Shore’s flyway.

Festival headquarters and vendors are located at the Cape Charles Fire Station, 501 Mason Avenue.  Free activities for children and families are located at Kiptopeke State Park, 3540 Kiptopeke Drive, Cape Charles.  Free bus transportation between Cape Charles Fire Station and Kiptopeke State Park is available.  Field trips and activities are held in various Eastern Shore locations beginning Friday, October 10, at 7:30 a.m., through Sunday, October 12, at 4 p.m. [Read more...]

WEDNESDAY 9/24: Tapestry of Memories by Heritage Hall Residents on Exhibit at Stage Door Gallery

“Memory is identity. I have believed this since . . . oh, since I can remember. You are what you have done; what you have done is in your memory; what you remember defines who you are; when you forget your life, you cease to be.”
– novelist Julian Barnes

Please join us at the Stage Door Gallery 5-8 p.m. Wednesday, September 24, for an evening of art, stories, and memories.

Residents at Heritage Hall nursing care center in Nassawadox have been exploring memory, reminiscing and rediscovering themselves by creating wonderful pieces of art.
