Under the rented big-top at the House on Water Street last Saturday, friends said goodbye to longtime Sperryville residents Jeanne Drevas (center) and Carl Aplin, who’ve moved to Oregon. After Joanne Hilty (left) presented a certificate of appreciation on behalf of the Rappahannock Association for the Arts and the Community (RAAC) to renowned potter and nature artist Drevas – the driving force a decade ago behind RAAC’s now-essential annual studio and gallery tour – Aplin was also formally thanked for his volunteer work for RAAC Community Theatre and the Sperryville Volunteer Rescue Squad. As many at the party pointed out, some tearfully, Rappahannock won’t be quite the same without Jeanne and Carl.
