These photos, taken at roughly the same time last weekend, show (top) a brief visit by American Legion Riders from Warrenton Post 72 taking a pit stop at the Sperryville Volunteer Rescue Squad’s parking lot during a fundraising Poker Ride last Saturday, and evidence (bottom) of the latest visit by at least 18 members of the regional Porsche Owners Club to the Stonyman Gourmet Farmer on Gay Street in Washington.
