#GivingTuesday - Help Mt. Vernon Purchase a team of mules

posted Nov 30, 2015, 7:23 PM by Hope Graves

Tomorrow on #GivingTuesday, December 1, and through the end of the month, George Washington’s Mount Vernon is inviting all mule lovers to help purchase a new team of mules to reside on our first president’s estate. By acquiring these mules, Mount Vernon will help build the bridge to inform visitors on the importance and history of these animals. We believe this event would appeal to the members of your organization, and it would be great if you could place information about it on your website. More information can be found at MountVernon.org/GivingTuesday. If you have any questions, please let me know!

 

Best,

Alicia Oken

Help Save The Glenwood Horse Trail

posted Nov 19, 2015, 12:34 PM by Hope Graves

We have received word that some people are trying to have the "horse" removed from the sign at The Glenwood Horse Trail from Day Creek to Glasco in Montvale.  If successful, the trail will be closed to horses - and we do not want that to happen.  Anyone interested in keeping the horse on the sign, and continuing to let horses on this trail should contact David Whitmore immediately at 540-291-2188

In addition there is a meeting Thursday, November 19, 2015 at 7pm at the Salem Library to discuss the matter.  The meeting is open to the public we encourage everyone to attend to support our equestrian trails.
