Tri-County bids welcome to our new neighbors Welcome home! Are there two sweeter words? Whether you’ve been gone away for months or just had a long day at the office, “Welcome home” means you’re back among friends. You’re in safe surroundings. Hopefully, you know that feeling of being welcomed home. And hopefully, that’s the feeling you have now that you’ve decided to call the Tri-County area your home. You are now among friendly folks. The people who call Vance, Granville and Warren counties their home are among the great-

est people you’ll ever meet. And opportunities abound for you to find a job or find a place to relax — whatever your desires may be. The advertisers in this Newcomer’s Guide and our staff at The Daily Dispatch want to make your move to Henderson, Oxford, Warrenton, or any of the other smaller communities in our area a smooth process. Therefore, we have attempted to gather for you the vital information you need to get your lights, gas, water and telephone ser vices turned on; to get your driver’s license;

to contact your child’s new school; and do so much more. In this guide, you’ll find information on the histor y of the community and famous people from our area. We have a list of churches that are eager to welcome you to their congregations. You’ll also find information about health care, cultural opportunities, restaurants and other activities in the Tri-County area. We’ve attempted to cover as much as we could in this space, but don’t forget that part of the

excitement of moving to a new area is discovering as much as you can for yourself. If you discover something you think should be included in the next edition of the Newcomer’s Guide, don’t hesitate to let us know. You’ll notice that the advertisers in this guide cover an ever-larger area beyond the Tri-County, including Franklin County and southside Virginia. We thank all of our advertisers for their support of the guide, and we encourage you to support them as the ones who can provide the goods and ser-

vices you need while making your home in this area. You’ll run into folks who were born here and have lived here all their lives, others who have just recently moved in, and some who left for a while and have come back. Whether you were born here and are returning or you are arriving for the first time, we invite you to make this your hometown. After you get settled in, we encourage you to get involved and to join us in making our communities even better places to live! Our best to you and yours!
