Short cut Who likes traffic? I think it’s safe to say that not many do. Here is a short cut that can help. Route 5 (John Tyler Highway) is a great way to get to Richmond, if you like a scenic route. It passes the James River Plantations and can really be a time saver during the summer when Interstate 64 gets jammed up. Hop on Route 5 at 199 and head west.

Bassett Hall, a two-story, 18th-century frame house on 585 acres (including woodlands) near the colonial Capitol building, was the Williamsburg home of Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller Jr. In addition to the main house, the property includes a teahouse and three original outbuildings—a smokehouse, kitchen and dairy. The house reopened to the public in December 2002 following an extensive renovation. As a result, both the interiors and the grounds are much as they were when the Rockefellers lived there during the mid 1930s and 1940s to oversee the restoration of the Historic Area.

York River Baptist Church and provide a gym. The church is also looking to add a full time Minister of Music. He extends an invitation to those who are looking for a place where people will be cared for and where their faith can grow. “York River is a warm and caring church,” he said. “We work hard at taking care of our own, but equally hard at assisting those in our community in any way that we can. People want to be greeted when they walk in and made to feel welcomed. However, that will not keep people. What folks are looking for is friends. We can offer a friendly reception to our church, and if you give us a chance, we can become life-long friends.” ––Ann Efimetz
The Rev. Bill Cashman has been pastor of York River Baptist Church for more than 26 years. In his tenure, he has enjoyed watching the small church located on Croaker Road in Toano grow from four construction trailers to a lovely facility which provides worship, teaching and fellowship space. He has watched the mighty works of God transpire in the small but dynamic congregation. He has baptized some 720 into the faith. “Since being in one place for so long, I have had the blessing of watching children born, then I was able to baptize them when they got saved,” he said recently. “I have watched them grow and then married them, and now I am seeing their children born. Being able to have a part in the lives of people over a long period of time allows us to become not just friends, but family.” Cashman has provided leadership in the church, sharing Scripture with a goal of making it come alive. “My preaching style is extemporaneous and very evangelistic,” he said. “I believe in challenging our people to become more Christ-like. God wants each of us to examine ourselves regularly and to be accountable to the fellowship so that we will begin to think, respond and act like Jesus would.” Over the years, Cashman said he has witnessed the hand of God firsthand within York River, exemplified through the work of church members. The church has participated in various ministries ranging from providing services to women in crisis pregnancies and interpreting church services for the deaf to visiting those in jail ministries and area nursing homes. There have been mission trips to various locations across the country and internationally to share the Good News. The church is also proactive in its approach to youth, having hosted dozens of youth rallys and encouraging their faith and church involvement. Recently Joey Meador was brought on staff as Student Minister. Cashman said the church future is “bright.” There are plans to purchase the land next to the church for future expansion which would include a multi-purpose building that could house worship, fellowship, WWW.WILLIAMSBURGMAG.COM

help at the medical facility. Hoyt said she has a deep appreciation for the clients she encounters while there. “Every week I look forward to spending time working,” she said recently. “The patients are very friendly and are always willing to talk. About a month after it started, I just fell in love with the job.” One of the aspects she treasures most is being able to help, often only a simple gesture or kind word. “To be able to help the less fortunate is a rewarding feeling,” she said. “To know that I could have put the only smile across a patients face or bring joy to them for one second makes everything I do worth my time.” Hoyt said her time at Lackey Free Clinic will continue inspiring her in the future and will seek to volunteer throughout her life. “This experience will not let me take life for granted,” she said. “I know I should live life to the fullest, because there are those out there who can’t.”
Kimberly Hoyt admits having a long time interest in the medical field, which she attributes to her dad’s profession as a physician. That’s why it seemed a good fit for Hoyt to begin volunteering at Lackey Free Clinic more than a year ago. Through her affiliation with Girl Scouting, Hoyt learned about the clinic when her troop was considering a service project at the facility. Although those plans never took shape, Hoyt took it upon herself to contact the Lackey clinic and join their staff as a volunteer. She currently works about five hours per week helping around the office performing duties ranging from filing charts and answering phones to checking patients in or dispatching medical records to physicians offices. She admits staying “very busy” during her time there, helping to provide services to those seeking WILLIAMSBURG MAGAZINE, JULY 2010

More than a golf club husbands who are very jealous because they didn’t have the chance to learn or improve in this sort of environment.” Ford’s Colony has heard this request and is offering the men a similar program, she noted. The organization recently held a 20-year celebration, “4-Tee Alumnae Day Golf and Luncheon,” where members past and present had a party at Ford’s Colony. There was a chance to talk about the game, but most importantly to fellowship and share in the friendships which have formed as a result. “The dining room at Ford’s Colony was filled with 4-Tee graduates, present members, and the most important people of all, those who kept the program alive by directing the agenda. It truly was a reunion filled with nostalgia, laughs and pride.” Callaghan said that the group has provided the “most accidental but gratifying experience of my life.” “To realize that so many friendships, lifelong and important, started in a 4-Tee class and will endure because of something I promoted?” she said. “Well, there is no way to measure that feeling.”
In 1990 when Ford’s Colony was a relatively new community, resident Judy Callaghan started a group which helped women golfers learn and become adept at the game. “For the newcomers moving in their choice was to either join the 18 hole golf group for the experienced players, or the 9- hole group for novice or beginning players,” Callaghan recalled recently. “And for that 9-hole group it was becoming a major issue as so many of the new members needed a lot of special instruction in rules and etiquette for this complicated game.” As president of the 9-hole group, Callaghan realized a beginning group for the new players was needed. She asked the board for support of the idea. So was the genesis of the “4-Tee” program. “It was soon realized however, that only lessons were not going to suffice,” she said. “We needed to get other women involved in the program to really bring the beginners into our association. So actually we took over much of the coaching and training in rules and etiquette after the pros did the technique clinics.” Since 1992, at least 250 women have gone through the program. Most of those who stuck with the program, graduated to the 9-hole group through the years. Several have served in leadership in the group, “giving back” for what they gained. “Our current roster shows that a little over 50 percent of this year’s members are graduates of the 4-Tee class. About 12 have qualified for the 18 hole group,” she said. Callaghan said that the program has had an impact on their lives. “I hear how it has changed their vacation choices,” she said. “I hear how proud their spouses are of them, and then I have heard some WWW.WILLIAMSBURGMAG.COM

John Ammerman is “A Man for All Seasons” If you saw the Virginia Shakespeare Festival’s production of “Macbeth” four years ago, you may be already familiar with John Ammerman’s work. Ammerman, who lives in Atlanta, Ga., played the title role in Shakespeare’s dark tragedy. This summer, he returns to Williamsburg to take on a very different, but no less intense role. Ammerman has been cast to play Sir Thomas More in the Virginia Shakespeare Festival’s production of the famous play. It is a reprisal, of sorts, as Ammerman played the role last year at Theatre in the Square in Atlanta. Ammerman, who was last here as part of the 2008 VSF season to play in “The Complete History of America, Abridged,” welcomed the chance to revisit the role. Christopher Owens, festival artistic director contacted Ammerman about the possibility. “I told him I would be absolutely thrilled to come and work with you (Owens) and come back to Williamsburg,” Ammerman said in a recent interview. WILLIAMSBURG MAGAZINE, JULY 2010

In c Amme the wo “Mo and ev him,” h on the and hi absorb He is a absorb makes Am a welc his sum “I am enjoy w import around comed artists. come.”
Ammerman is confident the play will be well-received for its timeless message and plot. The play recounts Sir Thomas More’s dilemma to obey his conscience in defiance of King Henry VIII. “It is a quite brilliant play,” Ammerman said. “It is good to have a resurgence of the play and have it be seen by people. It is one of those plays that goes away for a long time and then suddenly people start thinking about it again.” Ammerman said he particularly enjoys playing the character because of More’s “conviction and his conscience.” “He also had an interesting sense of humor,” Ammerman added. “He was playful, but was very firm in what he should follow and believe in. My interest was looking at the world from his perspective, and what he risked losing.” In contrast to Macbeth, Ammerman said More takes in the world and reacts to it. “More is a listener, he takes in and evaluates what people say to him,” he explained. “Macbeth is on the train. It is all about him and his ambition. More is about absorbing everything around him. He is a man for all seasons. He absorbs everything and then makes a decision.” Ammerman said the festival is a welcome way for him to spend his summer. “I am thrilled,” he said. “I really enjoy working up there. That is important when you are working around the country, to feel welcomed and to meet different artists. It is a privilege for me to come.”
