    Gossip at the beauty shop

    Virgilina's communication centre

    Virgilina's communication centre isn't WRAL-TV 5 or even FOX News. The Town & Country beauty shop is really the town's communication centre, every bit like the ancient Roman forums. If a secret you want kept makes the beauty shop, it might as well be on FOX News or WRAL-TV 5.

    Virgilinans Don't Hide Their Southern Pride

    Southern Girls: Sweet as Cherry Pie

    Southern pride is not meant to offend anybody, but to pay respect to the slower-paced, more friendly way of life in small Southern towns as Virgilina, not to mention the world-class Southern cuisine. We know how to cook our green beans right, folks! It's good to see that folks in Virgilina aren't intimidated by folks in the big cities up north and on the west coast which somehow get offended or indignant at Southerners who dare to show their pride.

    Rare sense of community

    Virgilina still holds on to the sense of community (looking after one's neighbours) that has become rarer and rarer these days. In fact, I sometimes think it can only be found in towns this small. I took a short stroll to the post office uptown to get Grandma's mail. I ran into Owen Murray, Grandma's nextdoor neighbour, and I talked with him for several minutes on Virgilina's history. Mrs. Elliott came by and asked Owen to drop off some mail at the post office for her as she was driving to the hospital in South Boston. Owen was glad to do it and if he hadn't been there, I would have gladly helped her out. Also, my friend Daniel who lives down the street from Grandma, checks in on her once or twice a week. He's basically my eyes and ears when I'm not down there.

    Summerfest

    First Summerfest, 1983

    Summerfest is the only time of year Virgilina gets to shine. To raise money for the Virgilina Volunteer Fire Department, they have a big town reunion. The tradition started on 18 June 1983 and from 1984 on, it was held on the Saturday before Memorial Day (the last Monday in May). Specific Summerfest memories are included in general tips.
