“I Renew” Day
Saturday, September 20, 3:00 – 9:00 pm
Main St, Clintwood, VA
Were you married in Clintwood or know someone that was? Have you heard stories from older generations of coming to Clintwood to be married? At one time, Clintwood was lovingly called the Marriage Capital of the world, and we plan to celebrate that. There will be a wedding officiant on sight to renew wedding vows, or if you are feeling in the spirit of the day, you can tie the knot. Enjoy live music, numerous food vendors (serving anything from smoked barbecue to donuts), craft vendors, free face painting, and even a magician! Take part in contests throughout the day including Karaoke, cornhole tournaments, cake walks, and much, much more. So come on out and help us celebrate a piece of our past.

August is “Tree Check” Month
Help Stop the Invasive Asian Longhorned Beetle
Since the day the Asian longhorned beetle appeared, thousands of our nation’s hardwood trees have been lost. Once this pest infests a tree, there is no cure. What you can do is look for and report it before it has the chance to destroy more trees. So take 10 minutes to check your trees for the beetle, and any sign of the damage it causes, especially in August, when the beetle is most likely to be seen. Then report any sightings at AsianLonghornedBeetle.com
. The best line of defense against this devastating pest is you.
RAM is in need of volunteers, church and civic organizations, dentists, and donations to help make these events successful. To register as a volunteer please apply at www.ramvolunteers.org
