In between grilling hot dogs and burgers this Memorial Day Weekend, the Rockfish Valley Community Center is welcoming people to its 4th Annual Celebrate Rockfish! event Saturday, May 27 from 5 to 9 PM.

Rockfish River Gallery owner Kathy Bonham — who has a shop at RVCC — says she’s delighted to see more people trickle into the community center, especially since the recent road construction leading into it may have slowed down her business.

“We are low on foot traffic and I personally think it’s because of the construction on 151 and our road,” she says from the main room of the center, which currently features artwork from the BozART Fine Art Collective.

Raffle tickets, which sell for $20 each or $50 for a bundle of three, are available at the RVCC office, the Treasure Chest Thrift Store, and online at Otherwise, there is no admission charge.
