Waterfowl show to inaugurate firehouse

This weekend the new White Stone Firehouse, 579 Chesapeake Drive, White Stone, will be filled with paintings, carvings, sculpture and photography representing the work of 60 artists in the 39th annual Rappahannock River Waterfowl Show.

Participating artists will include 2018 Artist of the Year, Steve Rogers of Lewes, Del. Color prints of his new painting of the menhaden fishing boat, Rappahannock, will be given away each day at the show, said organizer Pat Bruce. The Rappahannock fished from the factory at Taft on the Rappahannock River in the 1930s. Show hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 17, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 18. Admission is $8 and is good for both days. Ages 12 and younger will be admitted at no charge.

Shuttle service will be available during the show from the parking area behind the former firehouse to the new firehouse. Proceeds benefit the operations of the White Stone Volunteer Fire Department, show sponsor.
