Fluvanna Art Assoication members (front) Page Gifford, Maria Carter,Deborah Nixon, Gayle Bielanski (back) Loli Stams, Izzy Hickey, Mickey Meyer and Carolyn Brown.It was a long time in coming, but a small group of members from the Fluvanna Art Association finally spread their wings and traveled over to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond. Member Gayle Bielanski, arranged for a private tour of a couple of exhibits the members were interested in, including the late 19th century and 20th century American art. The members looked in awe at the opulence reflected in the period of the late 19th century. Pam, their guide for the tour, explained this was commonplace for wealthy individuals to display their wealth openly. Pam skillfully combined elements of these periods, to complete an interesting art history as the members toured the American wing.

The newly opened Panda Chinese restaurant has a lot going for it, food-wise that is. If you’re one of the ones looking for décor and ambiance, Chinese red walls and gold Oriental fans, that is not what Panda is all about. The restaurant offers take-out, a few tables set up for eating in, and catering for small or large parties. It is a place for the true Chinese food lover.

There’s finally some movement in the Village Oaks development slated to go in across from the Lake Monticello main gate on Rt. 618.
Southern Development’s Charlie Armstrong said they’re close to signing contracts with potential owners and are now making road improvements.
“We started developing the road system,” Armstrong said. “Our entrances will be across from Lake Monticello’s main gate and across from Crofton Plaza. The road improvements along 618 to improve traffic flow include turn lanes into Lake Monticello and our community. Everyone who drives there knows there needs to be improvement.”

Snow still covered the ground as Fluvanna Master Gardeners met recently at the Fluvanna Community Garden at Pleasant Grove to make plans for the coming growing season.
The Community Garden is being revitalized this year, with new deer fencing, new gravel paths to reduce weeds, and new water spigots to reduce leakage. A meeting for all Fluvanna Community gardeners who have rented a plot or who are interested in renting a plot will be held Wednesday, April 9, from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. at the Lake Monticello Clubhouse Terrace Room.
The Fluvanna Community Garden was founded in 2006 as a joint effort of the Fluvanna Department of Parks and Recreation, the Virginia Cooperative Extension, and the Fluvanna Master Gardeners. For a fee of $50, any county resident can rent a 10’ x 15’ garden plot for the year.
