Spring Fling

Saturday May 18 (rain date May 25)

noon-7 p.m.

Save the date for this annual gathering of outdoor enthusiasts at the home of VOWA board member Jennifer Hensley and her husband Thurman, on 240 acres of great outdoors in Grottoes (just north of Waynesboro) in the Shenandoah Valley. The Hensleys have turned their land into amazing wildlife habitat with plantings and water features on this mountain tract that joins Shenandoah National Park. Opportunities abound for wildlife watching, photography, and hiking. There are also several shooting ranges for those who want to try skeet shooting, silhouette shooting and more.


The day starts with a potluck meal (featuring fun food from across the state depending on who attends) and then gets even more exciting as everyone sets out to explore the property.


You won’t want to miss this outdoors fun. VOWA members and friends and those considering membership are all welcome. More details to come.

DUES REMINDER: VOWA members are also reminded to make sure your 2024 dues are paid soon. Your $20 membership dues can be sent to the VOWA Treasurer Milan Majarov at 104 Winnipeg Place, Winchester, VA 22603.
