Cancer Survivor Completes Inaugural Cross Country Bicycle Ride

Fred_Kansas_Windmills

Endurance cyclist, cancer survivor and Purcellville resident Fred Vlchek completed a 5-week cross country bicycle trip. Along the trip he has been raising funds to help others struggling in their battle with cancer. He will ceremoniously dip his bicycle tire into the water of the Chesapeake Bay at the City Dock in Annapolis, MD to mark the end of his pilgrimage across the United States from the Pacific Ocean.

Beginning on July 26th in Oceanside, California, Vlchek’s route has taken him across 12 states reaching elevations over 11,000 feet. Throughout the last 38 days he has travelled over 3,200 miles alone on his bicycle. Although this has been a solo ride, he has relied heavily on the support of the local Knights of Columbus councils along the journey.

The goal of this pilgrimage is to raise funds for Fred’s Difference, an organization Vlchek founded, to help increase cancer awareness and support for those who cannot afford costly cancer treatments. Fred’s Difference has been raising funds to support the journey through individual and corporate sponsorships.

Donors and supporters can follow Fred’s progress and make contributions at www.fredsdifference.com

Charles Clark, Loudoun’s Oldest WW2 Veteran Turns 105; Meets the President

On August 2 Mr. Charlie Clark, Loudoun County’s oldest surviving WW2 veteran, was honored by President Barack Obama in a private meeting preceding the President’s rally in Leesburg. Also in attendance was Mr. Clark’s niece, Loudoun County historian Elaine Thompson.

While presenting Mr. Clark with a medal for his war service, Mr. Obama asked Mr. Clark how long he had resided in Loudoun. “Well,” answered Mr. Clark, “on the 23rd of this month I will have lived here for one hundred and five years.” An astonished President Obama, also celebrating a birthday this month, hugged Mr. Clark and asked him for his “secret” before the three posed for a picture together.

Video below the fold.

In May 2012 the Town of Purcellville tore down hundreds of trees, including nearly 100 fruit producing trees, on the 250 year old working farm, Crooked Run Orchard. The Town of Purcellville condemned by quick take over half of the 16 acre parcel (one of three parcels of the working farm totaling over 90 acres), to build the Southern Collector Road, many say will facilitate more future development in the area.

This action has split the farm in two with Sam Brown not having access to farm his back 45 acres, which include a peach orchard. To date the town has no plans for Mr. Brown or his customers to gain access to the back portion of his pick your own farm.

Dana Jansen’s use of intricate wire wrapping techniques encase and frame Brazilian agates, druzy quartz and an array of minerals and fossils found across the world.  Working mostly in sterling silver wire and occasionally copper, Dana’s labyrinthine designs supplement the stone’s natural beauty to create pieces that stand on their own as objects of fine art.

Mary Louise Ravese captures images that transport viewers to diverse destinations from around the block, to around the country, and around the globe. Inspired by a wide array of subject matter, Mary Louise's work resonates with striking color, texture and line.

In September, Arts in the Village Gallery presents Worldly Inspirations, a Featured Artist Exhibit showcasing intricately wrapped stone pendants and earrings by jewelry artist Dana Jansen, and evocative images captured by photographer Mary Louise Ravese, in a show that draws on inspiration, materials, and imagery from across the globe.

Dana Jansen’s use of intricate wire wrapping techniques encase and frame Brazilian agates, druzy quartz and an array of minerals and fossils found across the world.  Working mostly in sterling silver wire and occasionally copper, Dana’s labyrinthine designs supplement the stone’s natural beauty to create pieces that stand on their own as objects of fine art.

Mary Louise Ravese captures images that transport viewers to diverse destinations from around the block, to around the country, and around the globe. Inspired by a wide array of subject matter, Mary Louise's work resonates with striking color, texture and line. Her photographs of country landscapes, intriguing architectural details and unusual abstract compositions draw the eye and allow the mind to vicariously experience her view of the world.

 

Meet the artists and enjoy a glass of wine and refreshments during a free, open to the public reception on Saturday, September 20th, from 5 – 8 p.m.

Arts in the Village Gallery, 1601 Village Market Blvd, Suite 116, Leesburg, VA 20175. Tel: 571-442-8661 Email: info@artsinthevillage.com Website: http://www.artsinthevillage.com/
