Pocket book Smaller guide packs much information A new guide book from Colonial Williamsburg makes it easier to tour. The new book is much smaller than the trade paperback, “Official Guide to Colonial Williamsburg,” that has been in use for decades. The “A Pocket Guide” is not designed to replace the larger book, which is more comprehensive. The 96-page guide has more than 100 photos and key information on history, the “Revolutionary City” program, public buildings and homes, R. Charlton’s Coffeehouse, historic trades, taverns, the art museums

of Colonial Williamsburg, gardens, rare breeds, nightlife, shopping, restaurants, hotels, golf and spa. The book also includes highlights for first-timers. The back section of the book includes both Jamestowns and Yorktown. It also features a frequently-asked-questions section for practical advice on touring the Historic Area, including issues from handicapped accessibility in the Historic Area to watching your step in areas where horses use the streets. More –– “Colonial Williamsburg: A Pocket Guide” is available for $6.95 at many foundation stores.

Have a ball

Step back in time with colonial dancing The Newport House on South Henry Street near the College of William & Mary Law School, stands out along the row of homes. The bed & breakfast, owned by John and Cathy Millar, is bright yellow, giving it a unique presence. But it’s not only the color distinguishing it. Step inside the front door and you take a trip back in time. A flight of stairs in the main hall of the house leads up to a large, turquoise-hued ballroom. The house, a 1987 reproduction of the 1756 colonial dwelling, originally sported a ballroom similar to the current setup. The Millars decided to keep with the original colonial design and include a ballroom with a modern blueprint. And it’s utilized regularly. Each Tuesday the Williamsburg Heritage Dancers meet in the ballroom to participate in English Country Dancing. That’s a form of colonial recreation, both traditional and refined, as well as energetic and exciting. Some 70 regular members in the Williamsburg Heritage Dancers group gather at 8 p.m. each Tuesday. They come as they are, casually dressed. “Occasionally, someone will come from a Colonial Williamsburg function in their costume and join us for a dance, but, that’s just an accident,” John Millar said recently. Once the music had been readied and the group has gathered, the dancers choose partners and the 14

dancing begins. Each dance lasts for a few minutes, and varies in figures and formation. The dances range from contemporary to those written before 1800. There’s one dancer in the group who has begun writing dances herself. The dances are taught by a group of approximately eight. Each session is taught by two instructors, each rotating upon the hour. The Millars are both instructors and participants. The activity in the ballroom is so intriguing that guests staying at the bed and breakfast regularly join in. “We often get notes back from our guests saying, ‘We’re Photos by Ann Efimetz still dancing and loving it.’ It’s fun when people come here on vacation and they end up picking up a whole new hobby, a whole new interest,” John Millar said. Newport House dancing provides a fun way to learn more about colonial traditions. It’s not only a great diversion and good exercise, but those who participate can discover more about the history of the time period. Dancing is open to everyone, of all ages and dance skill levels. You can learn as you go. Are there any pointers for beginners from the experts? “Well, wearing the right shoes,” Cathy Millar said. “You have to wear comfortable shoes, no heels. And just come to enjoy, and have fun.” – Joanna Morelli Joanna Morelli is an intern working for The Williamsburg Magazine this summer. WILLIAMSBURG MAGAZINE, AUGUST 2011

Toys for all ages School Crossing is a shop that can be spotted immediately at Monticello Marketplace. Peering at you through glass are stuffed toy lions, elephants and a variety of colorful toys. Once you step inside, you realize School Crossing is a paradise for a child and a child at heart. The store, owned by Sherry and Bob Phipps, offers educational toys and instructing aids for teachers and a wide range of creative and innovative toys for all ages. The inventory is carefully chosen to reflect the newest toys as well as classic playthings. School Crossing creates a fun and upbeat atmosphere for children, parents and teachers. All customers are encouraged to try out various samples of games and toys throughout the store. “Play is really how children learn,” Sherry Phipps said recently. “Playing is a great way to get families together. They can play a board game or put a puzzle together, or do an arts and crafts project. We have lots of things that are great for an entire family to do. It doesn’t matter if your family has

a ninety-year old great-grandparent and a sevenyear-old child. It’s fun for everybody.” The store creates a nostalgic feeling which inspires adults to get involved. “We have samples of toys,” she said. “As people come in, we try to tell them about a new game, so that they may have an idea before they go home of what the experience is playing it.” The couple tries to keep a step ahead of the ever-changing toy market by trying to get the most up-todate toys and teaching aids for their stock. “We try to be current and relevant, because it seems like children are changing,” Phipps said. “We try to stay current in what’s available out there and try to be there to help our community.” – Joanna Morelli Joanna Morelli is an intern working for The Williamsburg Magazine this summer.

Your place is set It’s been almost two years since the opening of My Place playground adjacent to the James CityWilliamsburg Community Center on Longhill Road. Since, kids of all ages have been enjoying the inclusive playground. It was designed to welcome all individuals and families, regardless of their ability. Special features, a neat playing surface and fun recreational elements make it a great place to spend time. The playground is a privately funded project of the Leadership Historic Triangle Class of 2009 and involved people from across the community. Individuals, business and organizations pitched in to fund the $170,000 facility. Maintenance and repair are supported through donations and a commemorative brick paver fundraising campaign. For a $50 donation, contributors receive a commemorative brick paving stone etched with their message. The bricks serve to ensure that those who enter realize the playground is a true community location. One recent morning a local woman and her two kids spent time there and commented on how fun the equipment was and how they enjoyed frequently visiting the playground. John Carnifax, director of James City County Parks and Recreation, said that the playground has

been garnering positive comments from the kids and parents who have used the facility. “A lot of people who utilize the athletic fields near the playground like it too,” Carnifax added. “Their smaller children can use the equipment while their older children are playing sports on the fields, so it has been a win-win situation.” One of the hallmarks of the playground is the surface which helps cushion impact and makes it userfriendly for everyone. “The surface really makes it usable for all individuals and it requires less maintenance than other surfaces,” he said. The various playground pieces are constructed of durable plastic which are designed to wear well. There are swings, climbing equipment, merry-goround and other fun elements. “The desire is that it serves the kids well and they enjoy playing on the equipment,” he said. “We want it to be safe and enjoyable for the kids.” My Place is open daily sunrise to sunset. To donate, visit MyPlaceForm or contact Joan Etchberger at jetchberger@james-city.va.us or 259-5410. – Ann Efimetz

just for fun

You’ve got a friend More than 500 million people across the world have a Facebook page. The social network makes keeping in touch with friends, family and old high school acquaintances easier than ever. In a click of a mouse, you can keep up on birthdays, anniversaries and excursions to near and far. But there is more to friendship than just an e-message. Friendship, like any relationship takes work, compromise and a commitment to the well being of the other person. International Friendship Day, which is celebrated Aug. 7, gives people a chance to keep in touch the old fashioned way, with a card, gift or phone call. But if all

else fails, there is Facebook or Twitter. Here are some suggestions for keeping in touch or remembering the day thanks to friendship.com.au. • Write a card telling them how much you appreciate their friendship. • Buy or make them a small present, flowers, chocolates, friendship bands, a cake, a dreamcatcher or friendship journal which can include photos, quotes or poetry. • Hug someone, preferably your friend. • Call your friends on Friendship Day to let them know you care. • Make your friend a mixed

CD of all the songs that define your friendship. • Submit a “Friendship Tribute” to your friend to be posted on Facebook. • Send your a “Happy Friendship Day” greeting online. • Invite your friend out to lunch or dinner. Rent a movie make some popcorn or other fun snacks. • Go bowling, play golf, see a favorite movie, go to the theater or go to the beach. • Have a friendship dinner party. • Make new friends by practicing Random Acts of Kindness. – Ann Efimetz

HERE IS WHAT WE RECOMMEND YOU SEE! Is this your first Colonial Williamsburg visit or your first visit in a long time? Here are sites we recommend you see: The Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg (Allow at least an hour) The DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum features world-class English and American silver, ceramics, paintings, prints and textiles dating from 1600 to 1830. The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum is the first museum dedicated solely to American folk art in the United States. Peyton Randolph House (Allow 45 minutes) Home to one of Virginia’s leading politicians, this was the site of important social and political gatherings. The backyard shows the range of work undertaken by enslaved men and women and their interaction with the white household. R. Charlton’s Coffeehouse (Allow 30 minutes) Guests at R. Charlton’s Coffeehouse experience an interpretive tour that reveals the pre-Revolutionary significance of the establishment — a gathering place for the politically connected as well as for the socially ambitious — before concluding with an opportunity to enjoy a sample tasting of period coffeehouse beverages – coffee, tea or chocolate. Courthouse (Allow 20 minutes) County and city courts provided local justice both in civil and criminal cases. Participate in a wide variety of court trials in which lives, liberties and property come into contest. Magazine (Allow 30 minutes) The Magazine, Williamsburg’s arsenal, was the warehouse for gunpowder and firearms belonging to the colony and Commonwealth of Virginia. Printing Office and Bookbindery (Allow 20 minutes) Printed items such as newspapers, political notices and manuals played a key role in the spread of information before and during the Revolution. Silversmith (Allow 30 minutes) Skilled workers at the Golden Ball make jewelry, bowls, coffeepots and other items of precious metals. Wigmaker (Allow 20 minutes) At this shop, guests can watch as accomplished hands style hair and weave wigs from a wide variety of materials. Colonial Evening Performances (Additional tickets required) The fun in Colonial Williamsburg doesn’t stop when the sun goes down. During “Ghosts Amongst Us,” meet the ghosts of Williamsburg that still roam today. Determine the guilt or innocence of the “Virginia witch” during “Cry Witch.” Help keep alive the songs and dances adapted from the West Africans in the colonial American period during “African American Music.” Enjoy the type of variety show that entertained George Washington and Thomas Jefferson during “A Grand Medley of Entertainments.” Stop by any Colonial Williamsburg ticket office to make reservations for evening programs. For more information on Colonial Williamsburg’s programs, visit our website at www.history.org

William & Mary received more than 12,800 applicants for the Class of 2015, a record number for the seventh year in a row. • 31.6 percent of the admitted students are students of color. This is an increase from last year’s final total of 31.0 percent. • The percentage of first-generation college students increased from 9.0 percent to 9.6 percent of the admitted students. • 86.1 percent of admitted students with a high-school rank finished in the top 10% of their graduating class. Only 38.5% of admitted students

attend a high school that reports class rank, down from 40.2 % a year ago. • The percentage of legacies among the admitted students increased from 5.8%- 6.1% • SAT scores were comparably strong to previous years. The middle 50th percentile for the SAT Critical Reading and Math scores was 1300 to 1490, compared to 1300 to 1500 a year ago. The median score was 1400, the same as last year.

New space for classes This Century Art Gallery opened a new Art Education Center on Westover Avenue last March. The location gives the gallery more space to hold classes, programs and community outreach. Next month fall classes begin, and there will be more offerings for all ages. The new space has many advantages. “The space has great light,” said Susan Sullivan Tubach of the gallery. “It is provides great natural light for art.” The more centralized location has also helped spur more interest in classes. “We have more visibility since we are downtown and more people are aware we are there and are finding out what we offer,” she said. “It is a good time for art education.” She said the preschool art program has really taken off since the move and the elementary program “keeps growing.”

daily chef & tapas specials

new wine list over 75 bottled wines over 80 bottled beers

Several rooms allow for classes to be presented concurrently. There’s also a small area to display student artwork. Also new this fall will be art parties which will allow groups to bring their own food and beverages to the center. An art instructor will provide instruction on a pre-chosen painting and the participants will paint while enjoying each others company. “The parties are really fun,” she said. “It allows people to spend time together in a different type of way.” The center can also host birthday parties for kids and teens. Tubach said the future is bright for classes and more diverse programming. “We have great instructors and our students are wonderful,” she said.

The tranquil setting is ideal for a picnic or a short stroll. Geese, ducks and other wildlife love the area, and are frequent visitors. Wild flowers and other plants are abundant. A bird house is home to various birds and offer a ready-made opportunity to watch. As summer winds down and the fall season ramps up with activities, take some time and enjoy a few quiet moments. – Ann Efimetz Photos by Ann Efimetz WILLIAMSBURG MAGAZINE, AUGUST 2011

Patriotic Williamsburg Did you know that Williamsburg is is a finalist for “Most Patriotic Town” in the Rand McNally/USA Today “Best of the Road” search? The contest looks for the best small towns in America with populations under 150,000. In May 600 towns were nominated by more than 20,000 voters in five categories: “Most Beautiful,” “Most Fun,” “Best for Food,” “Friendliest,” as well as “Most Patriotic.” Williamsburg was among the top six in votes for patriotism. Other finalists are

Clarksville, Tenn.; Emporia, Kansas; Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri; Peachtree City, Ga., and Rapid City, South Dakota. Recently a two-person team visited and were tasked with investigating Williamsburg’s worthiness as Most Patriotic. There were special events planned to help distinguish Williamsburg as patriotic. At press time, the results were not available. However, if Williamsburg wins, it will be highlighted on USA Today’s Travel page and featured in the 2013 Rand McNally Road Atlas. Photo by Ann Efimetz

Working toward opening night When the Williamsburg Players open their 55th year this fall, it will be in a newly renovated theater. Work has progressed steadily over the summer in anticipation for the opening of “The Producers” slated for Nov. 3. The new James-York Playhouse, located on Hubbard Lane, will have more than 300 seats, tripling the house of the former theater. The on and back stage areas are getting a huge boost, allowing the Players to present larger scale plays for the community. And the changes aren’t only in the building. A new online ticketing

system will make seeing shows easier than ever. A visit to the Players’ website at www.williamsburgplayers.org allows patrons to pick the shows and seats they want. The old system of calling and leaving a message has been replaced with state-of-theart system. The Players have an industrious season to open the new theater. Following “The Producers,” the productions will be “The Taming of the Shrew,” “Pride and Prejudice,” “Noises Off,” and “Curtains.” – Ann Efimetz Photos by Ann Efimetz

Healing rooms Greensprings Chapel has started a new ministry at the church on Ironbound Road designed to help those who are sick or suffering in body, mind or spirit. Marlyce Johnson, who worships at the church, heads the “healing rooms” ministry. Simply, it involves others praying for healing for a person who seeks help with various issues. “Physical problems are the most common, and that is usually what people think of first when they hear about healing rooms,” Johnson said recently. “But people are body mind and spirit, and I know a lot of times those all goes together. If there is a need for emotional healing, it can manifest itself in physical symptoms. We rely on the Holy Spirit to guide us and trust he will show us the root cause.”

Last winter church pastor Brian Britton had mentioned he wanted to implement a healing rooms ministry at the church. “He asked if I would consider leading it,” Johnson said. After several months of training and organization, it began in early summer. Five people from the community attended the first session asking for healing prayer. “It was very encouraging,” Johnson said. “The people who came said they would be back and that they would spread the word.” The mission of the healing rooms is stated on the website www.healingrooms.com “The friends and team members of the

continued from previous page Williamsburg Healing Rooms are here to serve the whole community and the whole church. We are ordinary people who have experienced God’s extraordinary love and healing firsthand, and we would love to pray for you.” Johnson said anyone who wishes to be prayed for can come to the chapel and fill out a form as to WILLIAMSBURG MAGAZINE, AUGUST 2011

what their need for prayer entails. Then a team of three will pray for the person, laying hands on them and asking God for his healing touch. She is confident that soon there will be testimonies about healings. Johnson said it has long been a goal of hers to be part of a healing ministry. Eventually she hopes the teams can visit those in hospitals

or who are homebound. “This is a dream come true,” she said. “I didn’t even dare to dream the dream, and it has come true.” More-- The ministry is held 10 a.m.-noon, on the second and fourth Saturday of each month. For more information visit www.williamsburghealingrooms.com – Ann Efimetz 71

Positive results The decision for Discover Teas to advertise with the Williamsburg Magazine was an easy one! Knowing that our ad would be widely seen by the local market as well as visitors, it just made sense. Budgeting for only one print ad our first quarter, we needed the biggest bang for our buck. And we got it! Our Grand Opening was a huge success, and we continue to see a steady flow of residents and visitors walk through our doors ready to Discover Teas. -Chris Farishon & Kenneth Roberts of Discover Teas
