Did You Know?
- We have nature trails in the area for walking. One trail is owned by the Nature Conservancy off of Burnt Mill Road called Fernbrook Natural Area. It is a loop trail leading up to the Rivanna River. Great hike for families or for runners.
See pictures of the summit at the end of trail by the Rivanna River.
George and Jacintha Paschall donated the 63-acre tract in 1963 as a land gift and requested that it be preserved in its natural state.
The land was originally purchased in the 1700s for $45--to be paid in installments over a nine-year period. Prior to 1963, it was used for agriculture, cattle and timber. For the first time since the original virgin timber was cut, the forest is being allowed to "complete" succession into a mature stand, paralleling the Shenandoah National Park, where the woodland is evolving to resemble pre-Colonial forest.
For more information on the trail and how to get there go to http://www.nature.org/wherewework/northamerica/states/virginia/preserves/art1234.html

What's New at the SP Fire Station?
As a result of county funding and volunteer funds, the Fire Station has a
new front entrance and much expanded Day Room; this Day Room is where the crew
hangs out complete with TV. The Day Room accommodates a large table for
eating - or for training classes. Next to the Day Room is a Kitchen and
Pantry. This leads into expanded bunk rooms. According to Bryan, this was
one of the most pressing needs - having enough beds for volunteer crews and
especially visiting volunteers from the University.
Out back, they now have a new, large building for more storage, a workout
room, and garage. These facilities, by the way, are open to members;
meaning volunteers can come by and hang out, workout on the machines or even
use the garage to work on their car, if needed.
If you haven't stopped by, do so and meet your fellow Stony Point friends
and firefighters. The day crew is career staff, but from 6pm on, at night,
and on weekends, you can meet your potential fellow volunteers.
Do you feel the need to contribute and be that Firefighter you always dreamed about? Or, would you like to contribute in other ways, that helps the firefighters stay focused on their jobs?
Well, if you are 16 or older, stop by and see Bryan Sunday nights or email
him at firstname.lastname@example.org
