Fragments from Floyd

Calendar Jam


I swear they ought to make April and May into 45 day months to get everything crammed in. It’s not just wildflowers that bloom as the days grow longer and warmer: so, too, do calendar events, even in little ol’ Floyd.

Now March wants in on the act.

This weekend, for your entertainment, enjoyment and and cultural edification, consider:

Saturday Horse Logging demonstration near Floyd that will result in some timbers that are logged earlier in the day being milled while you watch into timber frame elements for a Floyd Fest stage. See Jason Rutledge and his horses in action, time (still not given on the lovely brochure) Jason says is 10 to 4.

And on Sunday at the Jacksonville Center, the second Empty Bowls event.

Come and enjoy some local music from The Statement, Bernie Covenry and Andrea Marshall while eating some fresh home made bread, great soup in a handmade bowl with desserts from the Floyd County Culinary Class. Tickets cost 10 dollars for adults, 5 dollars for children 6-12 and children under 6 are free and you get to take home the bowl! Tickets are available at the New River Community Action Project, Wildfire Pots Studio at the Winter Sun Building and the Jacksonville Center. Proceeds go the New River Community Action Backpack Project. 11am to 1:30pm. 540-357-5657.

And if you’re still bored, check out the calendar for what’s coming up soon.

  1. Fred,
    I need a doctor’s excuse to take off more than two days a week. There’s too much stuff to do!

  2. I hear the Empty Bowls is sold out! That is wonderful except I wanted to go. Was told by the organizers that you could go and wait around to see if anything opens up…a bowl and more soup, I presume. Congratulations to McCabe and Karen for such a successful event to raise money for nutritious snacks for kids in school.
