Thanksgiving Weekend 2012 in Central Virginia

Blessing of the Hounds

On Thanksgiving Day we often head over to Grace Episcopal Church in Keswick for the Blessing of the Hounds at 10:00 AM.   Conducted outside, the service continues from an English tradition with Fox-hunters on horse back and the hounds scampering about during the service.  There usually a good sized crowd so plan to arrive by 9:30 AM to get a good position.  If you’ve never been come out and enjoy!

E. A. Clore Sons

On Friday, skip the Black Friday Sales and head to Madison County, Virginia for the E. A. Clore Sons Annual Sale (Friday & Saturday).  Visit the showroom in Madison off US 29 or head over the hill to the Factory & Showroom.  Save 30% on most in stock items and 15% on special orders.  Our grandchildren & visitors to Kamp Karen still use my E. A. Clore Sons’ children’s rocker I received over 50 years ago.  Their handmade wood furniture becomes a treasured family heirloom.

Carters Mountain Apple Shed

Head up to Carters Mountain Orchard for the view, apples, cider, apple donuts and more!  We’ve been the last two weekends with friends from out of town and may make another visit this weekend.  They close for the season in early December so don’t delay!
