Fundraiser for the Co-op | September 17 Saturday
 
 
 
 
Following the grand opening of The Hampshire County Artists Co-op and Heritage Market Place (56 South Marsham Street in Romney) during the WV Peach Festival, an effort is under way to raise funds to put a classroom space in the building where art classes and meetings can be conducted. One fun event will be  "Ducks on the South Branch," a duck race fundraiser September 17. You can "adopt" a duck (or a quack pack) to be eligible for a long list of prizes at Anderson's Corner in Romney.  There also is a "GO FUND ME" page to help move the project forward. For more info contact Denise Huard at 304-359-3288.
