Screening of “Virginia Found” Scheduled for Next Week

To help celebrate the local community, the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) will be hosting a screening of the Gloucester/Yorktown episode of the new PBS culinary and travel series, “Virginia Found.” Local personality Dave Parker, who hosts the program, will be onsite during the screening and will be interacting with the audience.

The screening, which is scheduled to be held on the VIMS campus next Thursday, Sept. 16, is being cohosted by the Gloucester Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department and the Gloucester County Chamber of Commerce. The screening will take place from 7-8 p.m. at Watermen’s Hall McHugh Auditorium, 1375 Greate Rd., Gloucester Point, and is free and open to the public.

The series, which originally aired on local PBS station WHRO on Sept. 3, features Parker, who shares his humorous take on small town gems in Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay region. As a native Virginian, Parker brings his quick wit and knack for finding the people who help to tell an area’s story, uncovering gems of small towns and the original tastes along Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay region.

“We are excited to see this new show highlighting unique and exciting things to do in our community,” said Brooke Corley, Gloucester’s Tourism Coordinator. “We hope the public can join us for this special event to meet Dave Parker and celebrate Gloucester being in the spotlight.” (VIMS) has a three-part mission to conduct research in coastal ocean and estuarine science, educate students and citizens, and provide advisory service to policy makers, industry, and the public.

National Preparedness Month - It's Not Too Late to Be Ready for Storms!

Did you know that September is generally the month our area sees the highest impacts from tropical storms and hurricanes?

Now is the time to be prepared by signing up for Emergency Alerts, Knowing Your Flood Zone and having your Emergency Kit ready in the event you have to evacuate.

Meet our little friend, Bubbs!

He practically BUBBLES over with excitement and would love to bring excitement to your life too. He is such a happy boy and is so ecstatic when he sees all the great volunteers that spend time with him and give him the loving attention he deserves. Bubbs just wants to please people and enjoy life.

He is looking for a person who has an active lifestyle, enjoys training and all the positive results that stem from it. Bubbs has the playful nature of a puppy but is also housebroken, walks well on a leash and takes treats gently. Oh, and so handsome...did I mention handsome?

Sadly, when Bubbs was in his former home, he got into an argument with another dog and the person trying to break them up was bitten. We have seen no aggression at all from him since being at the pound. He loves being with people and would rather be with them than alone in his run.

Bubbs has been patiently waiting for somebody to love since April of this year. Please, consider adopting Bubbs. This dog has so much to offer, and the experience alone is truly rewarding. Don’t let this ball of love sit in the pound for another day! Apply for adoption now!

Are you ready to add some excitement to your life? Please come meet Bubbs, the bubbly guy who will keep you entertained and laughing. All adoptions are administered through the local Gloucester Mathews Humane Society.

Please contact Gloucester County Animal Control by calling (804) 693-5290 or by sending an email to Brooke at [email protected] to get more information on Bubbs and the adoption process, or to set up an appointment to meet this fine young fella. Thank you for helping a homeless dog.
