Fluvanna Review

It was opening day at the Fluvanna Farmers Market on April 3. Once again the people of Fluvanna can buy truly locally grown fresh produce where the person they meet is the person who grew it. 
We are pretty strict about that. Co- manager Jutta Glasscock visits farms to be sure, if they say they grew it, they did!  We are unique among markets and CSA’s – where sometimes produce is purchased regionally for resale.

Photo courtesy of Lake Monticello Owners’ AssociationDo the facilities at Lake Monticello need renovation and replacement? Should they be upgraded? Is the community willing to spend $7.1 million to do so?
In a week members of the Lake Monticello Owners’ Association (LMOA), who account for roughly 40 percent of the population of Fluvanna County, will begin deciding these questions. Paper ballots will be mailed at the end of May, and property owners have till June 27 to cast their votes.
The controversial renovation and replacement (R&R) project would renovate the Ashlawn Clubhouse, outside and in, and make it compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). LMOA staff would move to the lower level of the building where there is more room, the banquet room would expand for larger meetings yet have dividers to accommodate several smaller gatherings, and the Ashlawn Grille, the clubhouse restaurant, would be renovated.
The current pro shop and Eagle’s Nest building would be demolished. Taking its place would be a new Bunker Recreation Center that would house a pro shop, a sports pub with a grille, a large meeting room with the capability to be divided into smaller rooms, a space for the broadcast group’s operations, and lockers and bathrooms for the golf course.
The cart barn, or the place where LMOA stores the golf carts, would be torn down and replaced by a new building. All playgrounds would be upgraded over the course of five years and the Ashlawn basketball courts would be rebuilt.

he displays light up to the music of  ten different Christmas favorites like Little Drummer Boy, Carole of the Bells and the theme to A Charlie Brown Christmas.About half the population of Fluvanna County lives behind the gates of Monticello. If you aren’t one of them, now is the time to phone a friend to let you in.
Inside those gates at 4 Lewis Court you’ll find perhaps the best Christmas light show in the whole county.

Troy Weidenheimer with Fluvanna Art Association members who displayed their abstract artwork.Fluvanna Art Association member and art instructor Troy Weidenheimer returned for another workshop, this time to focus on learning to paint more freely.

That’s not an easy thing to do after years of learning how to structure one’s artwork. To do this, members of the association had to move toward abstraction.
