GivingTuesday December 1, 2020

Giving Tuesday is celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving Day as a sort of balance (or, perhaps, balm) to the manic (if not materialistic) “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday” which precedes Giving Tuesday. But now, more than ever is when charities across the nation (or on earth) need support the most. Simply put, because of COVID-19, GivingTuesday 2020 funding is critical.

It’s a small window of only one day, December 1 but on Giving Tuesday, and throughout the year, your donations are greatly appreciated. It’s just a great way of celebrating the true Spirit of the Holidays: philanthropy through the community.

Pen-to-Paper Authors’ New Books

Books make excellent holiday gifts. Windmore writers appeal to every age. Support local arts with your purchase now and throughout the years.

Pen-to-Paper member, Allita Irby, is a co-author of Fourth Sunday, the Journey of a Book Club. The genre is Cosmopolitan Literature. Available on Amazon.com.
“What happens when a real-life book club decides to write their own novel? The result is a fresh, fun story about a group of women who have more in common than just the books they read.”

 

Tucked away in the pages of history are amazing stories of African American men — slave, runaways, and free– who courageously fought for the ideals expressed in the Declaration of Independence. Women also fought but with words which penetrated like bullets. And Jewish emigrants gave their lives and fortunes for what America offered. More than twenty-one are celebrated in Courageous Men & Women of the American Revolution.  Paperback. 150 pages with color illustrations and chapter resources. Humphries also has other books available on Amazon.
Caryn Block has three new books recently available.

Yes, Virginia, The Musical! December 12 & 13, 2020

Great News!  StageWorks will still be able to do our performance live!  According to the Governor’s most recent executive order (EO 68), we fall under the section for performing arts business and therefore we can have more than 25 people in our audience as long as we take proper steps for social distancing.

COVID Mitigation We are limiting our ticket sales to 100 tickets per performance.  There will be 6 feet circles chalked on the road spread out by 8 feet for groups to sit in together.  We will have hand sanitizer stations, a clearly marked path to each of the circles and masks will be highly encouraged! (they keep your face nice and warm too!)

We are so excited to invite you to join us LIVE on December 12 and 13 at the Culpeper Depot for our performances of Yes, Virginia The Musical!  To purchase tickets please click the button Ticket Sales below. Rain dates are December 19 and 20.

Inspired by the true story of 8-year-old Virginia O’Hanlon, who wrote a letter to the “New York Sun” newspaper in 1897, to ask about the existence of Santa Claus. The Sun’s editor responded with a poignantly-worded essay that became one of the most famous newspaper editorials of all time.
