Middleburg Blog: National Night Out

On Aug. 1, Middleburg will hold another of its award-winning National Night Out events. This year is a little different -- the event will double as a retirement party for Lt. Mike Prince.

After the July meeting of Middleburg’s Town Council, Chief A. J. Panebianco of the Middleburg Police Department posted, “Tonight the council celebrated the career of Lieutenant Mike Prince. He will officially retire from the police department on Aug. 1. He has served our community well. Please come to the National Night Out event on Aug. 1 as we throw him a party with the community he served. Everything is free and all attendees will get a shirt marking the event because the 2017 National Night Out is Mike’s Night.”

Middleburg United Methodist Church’s spaghetti dinner

On the second Wednesday of each month, beginning with Aug. 9, 4:30 – 7:30 p.m., in the social hall of the Middleburg Methodist’s Church, the members will be serving a spaghetti dinner as a fundraiser for the repair of the damaged church steeple. The steeple is leaning and requires major structural repairs, and the members are working very hard to save this part of the historic church.

The church’s minister is Rev. Steve Weedling. Sunday School is at 10:30 a.m., and regular services are at 11:30 a.m. The church is active in local, national, and international missions. It supports the Seven Loaves Food Bank assisting with the school supplies for children in August and Christmas gifts for families in December. It has also recently become involved with Mobile Hope.

Middleburg United Methodist Church is located at 15 West Washington St. with parking in the rear of the church. Tickets for the spaghetti dinner are available at the door. For advanced tickets or to make donations for the steeple fund, please contact Reiko Lewis at 540-687-6208 or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Mobile Hope asks for help

One of the county’s most important resources is asking for help. For those who want to become involved, your help is needed to build life skills and emergency housing facilities for homeless children.
According to Mobile Hope, there will be a forum to discuss housing options and needs, timelines and processes. The forum is scheduled to meet at the Leesburg Junction, 215 Depot Court SE, Leesburg, Aug. 29, 5:30-7:30 p.m.
