New Comcast On Demand Series Filmed at Orange, VA Inn!

New Comcast On Demand Series Filmed at Orange, VA Inn! By Pat Licata REALTOR
Comcast Xfinity recently recorded two episodes of a made-for-on-demand special series  focusing on music, food, and wine called “Sessions at Willow Grove” at our local Inn at Willow Grove in Orange, VA. The Inn, only 30 minutes from Lake of the Woods, featured cuisine by head chef Jason Daniel until recently when he and his family relocated out of state from their home in Lake of the Woods.
The first special, which will air October-December, features Nick Lachey (famed member of 98 Degrees and also Jessica Simpson’s x-husband) singing songs off his upcoming album as well as some solo hits in the Barn at Willow Grove. Singer Kate Voegele also filmed an episode to be released as the second in the series, which will be called “Cooking with Kate.” Tickets to the event raised money for The Boys and Girls Club of Orange and Madison, in addition to Nick Lachey’s Foundation.
We personally love the Inn at Willow Grove and can’t wait to check out the special series this Fall!

Locust Grove Middle School Principal Named Best in State of VA! By Pat Licata REALTOR
The Virginia Middle School Association has named Kim Crandall, Principal of Locust Grove Middle School, Master in the Middle School Educator of the Year for 2014! She became Principal in 2011 when the Middle School opened. Principal Crandall received her Bachelors in English from Anderson University and a Masters in Women’s Studies from Harvard University. She was nominated for the award by several of the teachers at LGMS.
“According to the Virginia Middle School Association, the award recognizes educators who serve in roles other than as classroom teachers who have demonstrated a devotion to working with young adolescents and have demonstrated a commitment to best middle level practices.”
Congratulations, Principal Crandall!
