Same Day Access program one-year celebration

The Hanover Community Services Board will celebrate the one-year anniversary of its Same Day Access program with an open house event tomorrow from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at its Ashland location at 12300 Washington Highway. Here’s the video. Following the celebration there will be a Revive training from 1:15-2:15 p.m. at the same location.  Revive training is a lifesaving tool for those who may come into contact with someone suffering from an apparent opiate/heroin overdose. 

Ashland's "Light Up the Tracks" begins tomorrow

Throughout December, businesses and Randolph-Macon College along Ashland’s railroad tracks are strung with twinkling lights from one end of Ashland to the other. The effect is a living holiday postcard for train travelers and downtown visitors, called Light Up the Tracks. The Grand Illumination will be held on tomorrow night from 6-9:30 p.m. at the Ashland Library Plaza. More events will be held on each Saturday afternoon and evening leading up to Christmas. Light Up the Tracks is presented by Dominion Energy. More information at http://lightupthetracks.com/
