March 4, 1:30 PM – First Saturday Outing: Rockingham Community College Trail Hike.  568 County Home Road, Reidsville. The Dan River Basin Association (DRBA) invites the public to enjoy a hike in Rockingham County, NC at the Rockingham Community College (RCC) Campus, located in Wentworth, NC. A low-moderate, 2.5-mile, natural surface trail meanders through a wooded portion of the campus. RCC Trails officially opened back in 1974, but after a severe ice storm made much of the route impassable, the trails lay unused for years. This is a very pretty hike with much of it in mature hardwoods. We will hike a short distance off of the RCC trails to see the Wentworth Mineral Springs with the land-owner’s permission. This Mineral Springs was active in the 1890’s when people would lodge in Wentworth at the Wright Tavern. They would walk close to 2 miles to the spring to “take the waters” to improve their health. Participants are asked to meet by 1:30 pm at the parking area for the Bishopric Lifelong Learning Center (GPS 36.383853, -79.758802), with the kiosk, located at 568 County Home Road. The afternoon hike follows the mid-morning, virtual, DRBA Annual Business meeting. You will be asked to sign a waiver, bring lunch, drink, snacks, dress for the weather, hiking poles are a plus and leashed pets are welcome. This is not an ADA accessible trail. DRBA’s First Saturday Outings are free and open to the public.

September 13 – 17, 7:30 PM – Bright Star at Mill Mountain Theatre. 1 Market Square SE, Roanoke. Inspired by a true story and featuring the Tony®-nominated score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, Broadway’s BRIGHT STAR tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s. When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past—and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives. With beautiful melodies and powerfully moving characters, the story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion. An uplifting theatrical journey that holds you tightly in its grasp, BRIGHT STAR is as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful.
