The Spring 2011 issue of The Piedmont Virginian is now available on newsstands through out 13 counties of our beloved Piedmont as well as many Washington DC locations and a few out of state locations.
In this issue you’ll find an expanded food & wine section which will continue in future issues. Each issue will have a new food & wine area focus — this time, the focus is on Charlottesville. You’ll also be pleased to find many more interesting articles — from local gardening and Piedmont pets that tag along to work, to Civil War vs. Walmart and Musical traditions… we cover more than just one thing that this beautiful region has to offer!
Please also feel free to check out our new website, www.piedmontvirginian.com, and let us know what you think! Our new website is now much more user friendly and is easier to navigate. There is also a search ability now available so that you can search for past issue articles that were posted online. Your patience is appreciated though, as we are still in the process of getting all of the archived issues up and running on the website.
As always, our Spring issue is packed full of exciting upcoming Spring time events. However, be sure to check our website frequently as many new events come in that don’t make it into the print issue before it is printed. Please also check back on our website for upcoming contests such as this past Autumns photo contest!
Speaking of our annual photo contest, a big congrats to David L. Brown for being the first place winner in our Autumn 2010 photo contest. We had so many entries that we just couldn’t decide who should win, so in our Winter issue we asked you, our readers, to help us decide. After all of the votes were tallied, the winning photo is Welbourne Cathedral, taken by David Brown in Middleburg, VA. If you’re not a subscriber, be sure to pick up a copy of the Spring issue to see his beautiful photo as well as the 2nd and 3rd place winning photo’s!
Our Summer issue will be on newsstands beginning June 15th, and will once again include the very popular Castleton Festival program and so much more.
