Special Chamber Member Events!

The Blackstone Chamber of Commerce is pleased to sponsor The Virginia World War I & II Commemorative Profiles of Honor History Mobile that will visit Blackstone on Wednesday, July 4th, and will be parked in the Municipal Parking lot at Bevell’s Hardware.  It is a 36-foot trailer which features stories and artifacts from Virginians who served in World War I & II and will also be accompanied by a full-scale model of an M5A1 Stuart tank.  The Museum is open and free to the public.  The Library of Virginia is supporting this by bringing document scanning equipment and the public is invited to bring related images, letters and documents to be scanned and preserved and made publicly accessible in the Library of Virginia Archives.

 

The Blackstone Rotary Club will also hold its Annual July 4th Parade down Main Street beginning and 10:00 a.m.

Have a wonderful Independence Day, and I hope to see you there!

Jane
