Letter: Thanks for keeping businesses connected

Last Tuesday, the Flint Hill Public House and Country Inn (John Gruber, William Waybourn) and Rappahannock Cellars (Kelly Delmar) were underwriters for our sixth quarterly Rappahannock Business Link, a networking social. The food provided by the Public House and wine from Rappahannock Cellars were enjoyed by more than 35 members, and supporters, of our Rappahannock business community.

This event was made possible thanks to our generous underwriters and additional sponsors, including Critical Stages (graphic design)/Bill Pragluski, Fit to You/Cindy Griffin, the Theatre at Washington/Wendy Weinberg, Union First Market Bank/Jason Brady, Thomas and Talbot Real Estate/Alex Sharp, Central Coffee Roasters/Maggie and Kenny Rogers, and Commonwealth Sustainability Works/Andrew Grigsby. We are grateful to all of these generous people for helping us to continue this wonderful event.

The Rappahannock NonProfit Center (RNPC) organizes these events as our way to say thank you to our generous business leaders. The businesses in the county never fail to come through with donations when approached by nonprofits in this community that are constantly struggling to fund their various missions.

If you are a business owner in Rappahannock County and would like to be host or sponsor of future events, please call Jason Brady at Union First (540-987-3519) or Jan Makela at Real Estate III (540-675-1373). Our next social will be held in May at the Little Washington Winery on Christmas Tree Lane. Please stay tuned for further details as we get closer, and plan to attend. You’ll be glad you did!
