April 7, 2019

I have used Mountain Services to take care of my property for the past six years.  When we first bought the house they closed off a screened-in porch, replaced the decking and did a lot of other stuff.  Since then I’ve called them on numerous occasions for other things.  They’ve never let me down.  I also retain them to check the property when I’m not here. Robert Perice,

We are looking for an interior painter. Any recommendations appreciated. Lenore Magrum


Friday, April 12, at 7:30pm; In the Rockfish Lounge at the Rockfish Valley Community Center. Hayes Branch is a five-piece bluegrass band from Central Virginia playing the bluegrass standards everyone loves. Their sharp three- and four-part harmonies augment solid instrumentation including banjo, fiddle, bass, mandolin, and guitar. Bert, MaryAnn, Maggie, Mitch, and Ralph have a wealth of experience playing with other bluegrass and old time bands as well as a little rock and roll and gypsy jazz.  Cost $7 members, $9 non-members. Refreshments available.  

WPOA and the Wintergreen Sporting Club stock the trout pond with rainbow trout each spring. The 2019 fishing season on the trout pond began on Tuesday, February 26.

For the first several weeks of the 2019 season, each authorized angler was allowed to keep only one trout per day. The limit was increased on Sunday, March 24 to two trout per person per day. Go here for the rule governing the trout pond.

RVCC's Fourth Annual “Hoop Dreams” Basketball Tournament To Kick Off on May 5. Registration for the Fourth Annual “Hoop Dreams” basketball tournament at Rockfish Valley Community Center is now open.  The deadline for team registrations is April 30 for the event on Saturday, May 4th on the Center’s outdoor court.  The rain date for the event is Sunday, May 5th. Bold Rock Hard Cider will once again be the Premier Sponsor for the event.  

The 3-on-3 tournament is a fundraising event that will help offset the cost of lighting the court, which was completed in late 2015.  Teams will compete in four age groups: Youth (11-15); Young Adult (16–20); Adult (21-49) and Senior (50 and up).  A maximum of 5 members are permitted per team, and thanks to event sponsors, the team registration fee has been reduced for 2019 to just $50.  A limited number of registration fee scholarships are available for Youth and Young Adult teams. Individual and team trophies will be presented to the winning teams in each flight, and prizes will be presented to the winners of the “Hot Shot” contests following the tournament. The event will run from 10 AM to 4 PM, and water, energy drinks, and hot dogs will be provided for registrants.  There is no admission charge to watch the tournament games.

Team and additional event sponsors are still being sought for the event.  For more information, or to register a team, please go to the RVCC website: and select “Events,” or call 434-361-0100.  Individuals or businesses that wish to sponsor the event or a team, and teams that wish to request scholarship registrations, should call or email the Center at 434-361-0100 or
