A FILM PROJECT!
Kaye Kohler is working on a project with Tracy and Mathieu Mazza to film local residents, their stories of Rappahannock, what the county means to them, thoughts on the past and the future and whatever they want to say! First filming will be Monday, Nov 13. There will be a second opportunity some time after the New Year.
Call for details if you know someone who might be interested or interesting! The Mazzas filmed our interview with founder Phil Irwin top left of page. The new film will include images and film of Rappahannock as a backdrop.
