Tips for A-maize-ing Autumn Fun! By Alina Moody The best way to celebrate Autumn with the kids is by going to your local pumpkin patch or corn maze to have fun. Corn mazes were brought to the United States in 1993 by Don Frantz and Adrian Fisher who worked together to bring the first maize maze to Lebanon Valley College in Pennsylvania. Since then, the popularity of corn mazes has skyrocketed and become a staple of Autumn celebration. Many bloggers offer tips for those looking to venture into a corn maze: Make sure you are wearing good walking shoes that are closed toed. You will be traipsing through dirt and likely fallen corn stalks; you don’t want to risk getting sharp rocks or thick stalks trapped in your shoes! Bring bug spray and sunscreen. You don’t want mosquito bites or a sunburn to ruin your good time. Bring a flashlight if you plan on going through the maze at night. You don’t want to get lost in the dark! Another hallmark of Fall celebration in Southern Virginia is going to a pumpkin patch to pick out the perfect pumpkin for carving. Originally, turnips were carved to celebrate All Hallows Eve—the predecessor to Halloween— however, pumpkins were far more plentiful in the United States, and easier to handle for carving. This is how pumpkins became the face of Halloween! Thankfully, a lot of farms double as pumpkin patches and corn mazes, so there’s no need to pick one or the other. Some helpful hints for picking perfect pumpkins include: If you can, pick your pumpkin right off the vine in the pumpkin patch. If not, look for a green stem. Green stems indicate that the pumpkin was just picked off of the vine and is fresh. Make sure the flesh is spotless; you don’t want the pumpkin to have soft spots that will likely develop into mold and rot. Make sure you choose one big enough for whatever design you have in plan. You don’t want to plan for an elaborate jack-o-lantern design on a tiny pumpkin! Make sure the base of your pumpkin is solid; you 4

want your carved pumpkin to be able to stand on it’s own without rolling around. Be sure to check out your local farms for fun Fall activities. Oak Grove Farms, located in Buffalo Junction, plans on opening in October. The tentative hours located on their website are as follows: Saturdays 10:00a.m. to 8:00p.m. and Sundays 1:00p.m. to 6:00p.m. Oak Grove Farms have hosted two corn mazes, pumpkin picking and hayrides since the opening of their “Fun on the Farm” in 2016. They will not be doing corn mazes this year, but their pumpkin patch will be open for business; they may try to do a few hayrides as well. We hope they will be able to continue as planned, with precautions in place that will still allow for Autumn fun! FALL 2020 LAKE LIFE

Spend a day around the lake By: Jami Snead Planning a trip to Buggs Island Lake? One thing is for certain; there is no shortage of things to do and places to see. From Native American history to breath taking gardens, Mecklenburg County has plenty to offer its visitors. Here are a few tips for when you are in the mood to take a break from camping or boating. Begin your day with breakfast at The Bobbin Cork. Try the highly recommended Cowboy Special, which comes with a western omelet, bacon and cheddar grits, fruit, and toast prepared to order. Enjoy the local shops along Virginia Avenue in Clarksville. The quaint downtown area overlooks the lake and offers amazing views. The Virginia Avenue Mall is a great place to find trinkets, antiques, books, and so much more. Enjoy work by local artist at the Galleria on the Lake, a place to find “fun, funky, and functional art”. Continue your shopping experience at Grandfather’s Country Creations, which is a great spot to discover unique antiques, nautical and lake décor, candles, jams and jellies, pottery, and furniture. Finish your morning shopping with a patio lunch at a local favorite restaurant, Cooper’s Landing. The cozy bed and breakfast was originally built in 1830 and now serves as a four-season destination serving fresh farm to table meals. Next, take a short drive to visit MaCallum More Museum and Gardens. MacCallum More sits nestled amidst the natural flora and fauna on Hudgins Street and is considered Chase City’s hidden gem. Lucy M. Hudgins, wife to Edward W. Hudgins—former Chief Justice of the Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals, established the gardens in 1929. The gardens have since been cultivated by three generations to become the beauty they are today. On your way back to Clarksville, stop by the historic Prestwould Plantation, home to Sir Peyton and Lady Jean Skipwith. Many of the original buildings are still in tact as well as Lady Jean’s immaculate garden. The plantation complex includes eight buildings, all built before 1830 and most dating back to the 1780s. Visit Occoneechee State Park to learn the rich history of the Native American Indians who once resided in the area on the Roanoke and Staunton Rivers. The Occoneechee called the area surrounding Clarksville home from the mid1200s until Virginia settlers attacked their village in 1676, 10

killing at least 300 Occoneechee and forcing the surviving Indians to settle further south in North Carolina. Finish your day trip with a refreshing beverage from Buggs Island Brewing Company located at 110 College Street in Clarksville. “The BIB Story

started with a couple of friends who enjoyed beer and began experimenting with home brewing. These friends found out that they enjoyed brewing, and soon discovered that they could make a good brew. They expanded their skills, along with their palates,

and over the last several years developed the recipes that served as the foundation for Buggs Island Brewery’s Flagship brews.” Enjoy the perfect end to your day with drinking, good food, and a garden view.

Ladies of the Lake Donate to Cancer Care Ladies of the Lake Donate to Cancer Care Committed, caring and fun. That’s the way Ken Kurz, Director of Marketing and Development for VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital, described a group of women who are continually making a difference for cancer patients at the Hendrick Cancer & Rehab Center in South Hill. “They just bring a smile to everyone’s face when they stop by,” he said. “It doesn’t hurt that they always bring a check to benefit our Cancer Care Fund, but their smiles are infectious and they work so hard to help us care for our patients.” The group presented a $1,000 check to Kurz and Teresa Collins, Director of the Radiation and Medical Oncology Department at CMH, recently for the fund. “These ladies have enriched the lives of our cancer patients, through their selfless acts of kindness. Their commitment and dedication to our cancer population is phenomenal! When I think of these ladies, the following quote by Brene Brown comes to mind, “Compassion is not a virtue -- it is a commitment. It’s not something we have or don’t have-- It is something that we choose to practice,” said Collins. The VCU Health CMH Cancer Care Fund was started by the CMH Foundation and generous donors to help patients in our community who are dealing with cancer. According to Collins, often during treatment, many patients may lose their insurance or face other finan-

cial toxicity issues like being unable to work, which makes nausea and pain medications very difficult to afford. The Cancer Care Fund is designed to help offset the cost of these medications. As patients visit the Hendrick Cancer Center/Solari Radiation Therapy Center daily for chemotherapy and/or radiation services the distance a patient travels can become costly; this fund can also assist with these travel expenses. Each case is thoroughly evaluated by the cancer care team, to determine exactly what assistance is needed, and if the Cancer Patient Care Fund is an appropriate resource. Support for the Cancer Care Fund can give these patients a hand, and also give them peace of mind, knowing that the inability to cover these costs will not stand in the way of their treatment. When a need is identified, patients are carefully screened by the oncology social worker and Director of Oncology to determine need and to assure that these funds are used in the way donors intended. Our oncology social worker does extensive research to identify grants or other resources which may be available for the patient on top of looking at the Cancer Care Fund.  If you are interested in donating to the VCU Health CMH Cancer Care Fund you can call (434) 447-0857 or visit vcu-cmh. org.

Lake COVID concerns lead to cancellation of Clarksville festivals By Alina Moody

T

he Clarksville Annual Lake Fest celebration that was originally postponed for September 18-20 has been cancelled. The Clarksville Lake Country Chamber of Commerce made the decision this morning, Thursday, September 3. This decision was made due to, “the Phase 3 restrictions in hosting large events, which would only allow 1000 attendees and as we all know, Lakefest is a largely attended event. It wasn’t an easy decision due to the economic impact Lakefest had for

fest

the county but it is in our best interest for us to hold value to the well-being and safety of our community and for those attending.” In June, the Clarksville Lake Country Chamber of Commerce first made the decision to reschedule the 43rd Annual Lake Festival from its usual mid-July date to September. The Chamber Board of Directors stated that the decision was made, “with a heavy heart,” due to concerns regarding the Coronavirus Pandemic. It has been stated that the Chamber will be selling the t-shirts with winner Victoria Messick’s design at the End of Summer Sidewalk Sales event scheduled for September 19. Some commented on the Chamber’s Lakefest cancellation Facebook post saying that the shirts should be altered to reflect the crazy year 2020 has become. All in all, most people agreed that while the decision wasn’t what they wanted to hear, it

was in the best interest for the town. The Chamber likewise made the decision to reschedule the annual Wine Festival for August. The Chamber announced details for the festival and procedures that would be in place to protect both tourists and staff alike in midAugust. As the proceeds from the Wine Festival go to benefit the Clarksville Lake Country Chamber directly, it was a hard call to make, but they ultimately decided the Tuesday beforehand to cancel the festival for the 2020 year. Anyone that had bought tickets prior to the cancellation of the event, was encouraged to email or otherwise contact the Chamber. Two options were made for ticket buyers: either a refund of the ticket or the chance to carry over their ticket to next year’s festival. While the cancellation of these two staple summer festivals has no doubt affected the Clarksville Chamber, they have run into some good luck as a result of the pandemic. The Clarksville Chamber of Commerce was gifted a $10,000 grant from the Virginia Tourism Corporation (VTC) DMO WanderLove Recovery Grant Program. This grant was made available to Virginia’s Destination Marketing Organizations (DMOs) across the Commonwealth who were heavily impacted by the pandemic. Clarkville has begun implementing the WanderLove logo into their commercials that began airing in early July in the Raleigh and Norfolk areas. They have also begun placing ads in magazine, digital and local media outlets. Right now, the Clarkville Chamber has begun marketing the “traveling WanderLove frame” on their Facebook page. The frame has recently been featured at The Twisted Tree. Citizens have been encouraged to take pictures with the frame and fill out postcards at the featured businesses in order to be entered for a chance to win $200 given away at the Holiday Open House to take place in November. Follow the Clarksville Lake Country Chamber’s Facebook page to get updates about the WanderLove frame and other important information.

Public swim beaches are available at all Corps of Engineers campgrounds in the area: North Bend Park Longwood Park Buffalo Park Rudds Creek Day Use Area Ivy Hill Park Palmer Point

Boating Regulations Motorboats, PWSC’s (ie. Jet ski’s) and unmotorized boats (ie. sailboats, canoes, etc) are welcomed on Kerr (Buggs Island) Lake. Because the lake includes water in both Virginia and North Carolina, the rules vary slightly. However, each state honors the boating and fishing regulations from the other state. Regulations North Carolina boating is regulated by the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission. Virginia boating is regulated by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. There are a number of regulations regarding life jackets, hull-numbers, registration, boating courses, safety equipment, lighting, alcohol and other things. If you are not familiar with Virginia and North Carolina boating laws, you would wise to read up. Kerr Lake regularly patrolled and boats are sometimes stopped. Required Boating Courses Both Virginia and North Carolina are ‘phasing in’ requirements that boaters (for motor boats with engines of 10hp or more) and users of PWC’s (Jet Skis, etc) complete ‘Safe Boating Courses.’ In Virginia, as of July 2012, all PWC operators, regardless of age, and motorboat operators 30 years of age or younger must have completed the “safe boating” course and have proof with them. In North Carolina, the current requirement for the “safe boating” course for boats AND PWC’s is for anyone under the age of 26. If you are visiting North Carolina, you must abide by the requirements of the state where you live. Both states have an index of both seated and on-line courses by location. Boat Ramps & Marinas There are many boat ramps and marinas on Kerr Lake. Because the lake level can change considerably, when

the lake level is low, some ramps do not extend all the way into the water and cannot be used.

Boat Ramps / Picnic Areas The following is a list of public and private facilities, and who they are maintain by, located on Kerr Lake/Buggs Island Lake. Many of these facilities charge a fee.

Looking forward to Clarksville’s Harvest Festival By Alina Moody

FALL 2020 LAKE LIFE


A

fter the cancellation of both the Wine Festival and Lake fest, Clarksville is looking for some celebration to look forward to. Luckily, the Annual Harvest Festival is just around the corner! Clarksville’s Harvest Days Festival is traditionally held on the first Saturday in October; hopefully this year will not be an exception. This year’s Harvest Days Festival is scheduled for October 3 from 9:00a.m. to 3:00p.m. The Clarksville Flea Market was also affected by COVID-19, so the Clarksville Lake Country Chamber of Commerce has decided to merge the two events this year. Virginia Avenue will be lined with eager vendors selling seasonal crafts, antiques, collectibles and other interested specialty items. In addition to the vendors, there will be specialty shops and restaurants offering specials throughout the downtown area. To celebrate the Autumn spirit, there will be farm animals, games and crafts for kids. The event is free for the public, so there is no admissions charge. This year’s festival will also continue into the later hours! There will be a Lake Country Cruise-in beginning at 4:00p.m. and going through to 9:00p.m. The Clarksville Lake Country Chamber of Commerce is excited to celebrate Autumn with everyone this year. If COVID precautions are still in place, there will be extra rules and regulations to follow. As we get closer to the event, check out the Clarksville Lake Country Chamber Facebook page for information and updates. The Chamber encourages small businesses to participate—especially anyone selling baked goods, homegrown produce or other similar food vendors. Those interested in becoming vendors for the event can go to the Harvest Days Festival event tab on the Chamber of Commerce’s website to apply. The Chamber encourages sellers to apply early, as the spots are sold on a first-come, firstserved basis. Applications received by the September 21 deadline will be notified of their space number by email on September 25. Vendors must supply their own tents and tables; electricity and water will also not be provided. Come out and enjoy the beautiful fall weather and specialties that Clarksville has to offer!

A brief history of the By Alina Moody The Occaneechi were a tribe of natives that lived primarily in the Piedmont area of what is now North Carolina and southern Virginia. They lived on a small island in the Roanoke River near present-day Clarksville, Virginia. The Occaneechi were a Siouan-speaking tribe, and were thus related to the Saponi, Tutelo, Eno and other Southeastern Siouan-speaking peoples. All of these communities are remnants of much larger Siouan communities that had lived in the area in prehistoric times. The Occonacheans position on the Trading Path that connected Virginia with interior of North America allowed them to gain influence as “middlemen” of the fur and deerskin trade between Virginia and other various tribes to the west. In 1673, the Occaneechi people were undermined as middlemen by Abraham Wood; Wood bypassed the Occaneechi and sent tradesmen into the southern Appalachian Mountains to make direct contact with the Cherokee. Shortly following this usurping, Nathaniel Bacon led an armed rebellion that unjustly slaughtered natives. The rebellion was a result of Bacon’s grievances against Virginia Governor William Berkeley for dismissive polices toward political challenges on Virginia’s western frontier and being left out of the fur trade with native peoples. Berkeley also refused a military commission that would have allowed Bacon to fight and attack Native Americans at his own discretion. In 1676, the Occaneechi allied with Bacon in a war with the Susquehannock; Bacon and his troops subsequently turned on the people and attacked three forts within the Occaneechi village. The British troops that had allied with Bacon killed the Occaneechi leader Posseclay as well as slaughtering approximately 100 of the Occonacheans. In the year following, the Occaneechi peoples as well as the Nottoway, the Appomattoc, the Wayonaoake, the Nansemond, the Nanzatico, the Monacan, the Saponi, and the Meherrin signed the Treaty Between Virginia and the Indians 1677—also known as the Treaty of Middle Plantation—as an end to Bacon’s Rebellion. The treaty designated that those who signed as “tributary tribes” were guaranteed their homeland territories, hunting and fishing rights, the right to keep and bear arms and other colonial protections as long as they maintained subjugation to the English Empire. 22

Picture of the Native American Festival at Occoneechee State Park taken from the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation’s blog. Following this treaty the tribes agreed to join together as a single community. The tribes signed the Stand Alone Treaty of 1713 with the Colony of Virginia and became known as the Saponi confederation. They then formed a settlement at Fort Christianna in what is now Brunswick County, Virginia. The confederation maintained the distinctions of each tribe, but had a common origin and were related linguistically and culturally. Today, The Occaneechi Band of the Saponi Nation (OBSN)—a community of descendants of the historic Saponi and other Siouan-speaking natives— carries out programs to benefit its roughly 1,100 enrolled tribe members. The community exists to preserve the heritage of the Saponi Nations people, and seeks out what little documentation exists on members of the historic tribe. The OBSN’s website—obsn.org—provides a short history on the nation as well as information regarding some of their projects and a small shop with beaded items made by Occaneechi artists. In 2002, the Nation embarked on a project to begin buying back portions of its ancestral lands in the “Little Texas” community of NE Alamance County, North Carolina. As stated on the OBSN website, “For the first time in over 250 years, the Occaneechi own land again as a Tribe, to be


Occaneechi tribe used for economic development for the tribal community, as well as for tribal administrative offices…These plans began to take shape in February 2004, when the tribe purpur chased 25 acres of rolling farmland on Daily Store Rd. on the headwaters of Stagg Creek.” A master plan for the site created by the OBSN in conjunction with the Landscape Architecture Department at North Carolina A & T University and the Rural Initiative Project, Inc. of Winston-Salem includes a permanent cercer emonial ground (completed Spring 2005); Tribal Orchards with heirloom apples, chestnuts paw-paws and muscadine

grapes (ongoing); reconstructed 1701 Occaneechi Village and 1880’s era farm (in construction); educational nature trails (in planning); Tribal museum (in planning); and administrative office space, community meeting area, classroom space (in planning). The goal for the complex is to serve as an educational tool for the Tribe and the public as a whole. In order to help raise money for this project, the Occaneechi have different fundraisers and opportunities for you to donate; note that your donation is for the Homeland Preservation fund. Any donation is greatly appreciated.
