area events

A new chapter for the Pottery Area residents have been watching in anticipation for several months as the new Williamsburg Pottery has taken shape on Richmond Road in Lightfoot. The Grand Opening of the new facility is planned for April 5 and will feature fanfare and celebration. Among those expected to take part in cutting the ceremonial ribbons are Governor and Mrs. Robert F. McDonnell. The $30-million revitalization and construction project has created an entirely new design and shopping experience. The new Williamsburg Pottery encompasses more than 160,000 square feet of retail space within three buildings designed in an Old World style. Among its features and services is a central courtyard plaza where entertainment and special events will held each weekend. A separate, fourth building will feature a spacious bakery and cafe that represents the regional debut of Au Bon

Pain, a brand recognized for fresh, natural foods prepared to order quickly and conveniently. Shoppers will still find the Pottery’s range of artisans including the award-winning custom framing and silk floral arrangements, as well as salt-glaze pottery and geraniums and plants, all produced on the Pottery’s grounds. These will be joined by diverse merchandise, including glassware, china, cookware and kitchen gadgets, gourmet foods, artisanal wines and craft beers, home fashions, lamps, home decor, candles, home fragrances, Virginia gifts, country store and seasonal items. A variety of local and regional items will ensure that visitors find unique remembrances of their trip. The new Williamsburg Pottery offers expanded operating hours, 9 a.m.- 9 p.m. Monday–Friday, and 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. Sundays.

Unique robot serves ice cream Robofusion is at Great Wolf Lodge He may not be as adorable as R2D2 or as erudite as C3PO, but Robofusion can match “Star Wars” archetypical robots in making kids smile. Robofusion is a unique robot ice cream sundae maker at Great Wolf Lodge. It’s one of only three robotic ice cream makers in the United States and the only one at a Great Wolf Lodge. “We’ve had such a great response to it we’re installing them at every one of our 11 locations,” said Tom Neely, director of food and beverage. One recent morning, young Great Wolf guests watched in awe as Robofusion’s robot arm moved a cup around inside its transparent casing to fill it with two flavors of ice cream and up to three toppings. “It’s adapted from technology created for automobile assembly lines,” Neely explained. It’s as easy to see the herky-jerky machine tightening lug nuts as topping a sundae with sprinkles before handing it to a fascinated customer. Robofusion seemed to be as much fun for kids who just watched as those who were getting the sundae. Strategically located beside the entrance to GreatWolf’s indoor water park, Robofusion is hard for kids to miss. While the show may be fascinating, it’s not cheap. A Robofusion sundae costs $7. “The thing that’s sort of amazed us is that this goes on 24/7,” said Great Wolf Lodge marketing director Cathy Chaplain. “It’s ice cream time at 7 a.m.” –Steve Vaughan WILLIAMSBURG MAGAZINE, APRIL 2012

And everything nice Sugar & Spice consignment store located on Richmond Road in Lightfoot has been serving the community for more than 20 years. The consignment boutique features a well-organized and diverse inventory of brands for children, teens and expectant mothers. The store has expanded and moved over the years and is a very busy place. “I see a growing market,” said owner Beverly Grimes. “I think people like the variety because the merchandise we get comes from all over. You may get something from Target or Nordstrom’s. You may be able to get products from Disney. There are a lot of things to choose from, it’s many stores in one.” The goal is to provide a friendly and inviting shopping experience for those who are looking for good deals. It is set up to resemble a trendy boutique, but it offers reasonable prices. It has gained a reputation for selling quality items in good condition. “And for our friendly service,” she added. “And kids ask to come to the store. They come for our playroom,” Grimes is very careful and selective about the merchandise she takes in. She has consignors from across the country, some from as far away as California. On any given day you could find the finest baby stroller on the market, whimsical stuffed animals, designer clothing for kids and a variety toys, baby furniture, gifts or school uniforms. “It is like a treasure,” Grimes said. “Everyday we get something new.” – Ann Efimetz

The new maestro Grant Gillman is the new director of orchestras at the College of William & Mary. He recently answered a few questions about his job. What have you found to be the most rewarding part of your new job at W&M? Hands down, the students have been the most rewarding part of my job. Not only do they come to every rehearsal prepared, but they have an attitude of vigor and are hungry to learn. I am finding this to be a characteristic all William & Mary students share. What are your daily duties? Running an orchestra is a bit like being a wedding planner. For a month or more, we work towards a concert. In rehearsal we scrutinize subtle aspects of the music and work to feel more comfortable performing together. In addition, there are many administrative tasks that facilitate the concert event itself. Public relations, publicity, community engagement, marketing, etc., all need the same amount of attention as the music. Are you impressed with the level of expertise among your W&M orchestra members? The intelligence level in the orchestra is so high

that I often wonder if the feeling is mutual. In high school, these were the students that sought excellence in every endeavor. The result is that they know not only how to play their instruments, but how to play the music in a way that moves both themselves and their audience. Do you hope to attract more people from the community to campus musical events? Absolutely. Music at William & Mary has a close relationship with Williamsburg. We want to embody the importance of art and music that helps to enrich this great community. Certainly, this continuous process will be carried by the whole of the music department. I hope to work with the students in the orchestra to participate in that collaboration. How does your job here differ from other positions you have held? Each community—whether a city, college, or orchestra—is unique. At William & Mary the students believe that this orchestra is and should continue to be an integral part of the school and their own lives. This orchestra is as much a family as it is an ensemble of top notch musicians. It is very satisfying to work with them every week. What about future goals? As the orchestra members continue to raise their expectations for the level of music making they can produce, it follows that they will be able to expand their repertoire. Integrating new pieces into their canon will further deepen the experience of each performer. In the growth that I have seen in just a short time, I am confident that these musicians are capable of many new challenges. – Ann Efimetz

The stately Georgian dwelling is the oldest official residence for a college president in the U.S. and has been home to 26 of the college’s 27 presidents. Completed in 1733, it has survived two wars, several fires, and occupation by military forces. The exterior is largely original, with exceptionally beautiful FlemWILLIAMSBURG MAGAZINE, APRIL 2012

Nothing like it People wait all year for the Easter season so they can stock up on all their favorite candy that’s only available once a year. Chocolate eggs and bunnies, jelly beans, Peeps and a variety of other sweet treats are only out during the Easter season. According the National Confectioners Association, Easter candy has a long history. The first chocolate eggs were made in Europe in the early 19th century and remain among the most popular treats associated with Easter. Here are some other fun facts: • 90 million chocolate Easter bunnies are made for Easter each year. •16 billion jelly beans are made for Easter.

WILLIAMSBURG MAGAZINE, APRIL 2012

• Five million marshmallow chicks and bunnies are produced daily in preparation for Easter. • Easter is the second top-selling confectionery holiday behind only Halloween. • 88% of adults carry on the Easter tradition of creating Easter baskets for their kids. • 76% of people eat the ears on chocolate bunnies first. • Red jelly beans are kid’s favorite. • According to the Guinness Book of World Records the largest Easter egg ever made was just over 25-ft high and made of chocolate and marshmallow. The egg weighed 8,968 lbs. and was supported by an internal steel frame. – Ann Efimetz 43

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.

Art on the Square If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s April, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for Art on the Square. For more than 45 years, the Junior Womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Club of Williamsburg has organized its annual spring art show to benefit local not for profit organizations through grants and scholarships. The show will be held Sunday, April 29 in Merchantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Square. Approximately 250 applicants apply each year, but only about 160 artists and craftsmen are selected to exhibit at the show. Each year, local Williamsburg artist, Richard DePaul, donates an original watercolor painting to the club for Art on the Square. Prints are made of the painting and are sold during the show. The 2011 painting was â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Hat For My Ladyâ&#x20AC;? and it was raffled off, with proceeds from the sale of tickets and posters used for the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine arts scholarship. This scholarship is awarded to local high school seniors who plan to pursue further studies in the arts. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poster is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spring Awakeningâ&#x20AC;? and will be on sale at the event.

Motor to AAA New building opens in Lightfoot

AAA has opened a new facility in Lightfoot on Richmond Road. Recently, Georjeane Blumling, vice president of public relations for AAA Tidewater Virginia answered questions about the new office. Is this office replacing the McLaws Circle location? Yes, this new location will offer expanded services including the new AAA Car Care Center. We hope it will better serve the Williamsburg community and our members with the relocation to Lightfoot. Why did AAA decide to relocate to Lightfoot? We had really outgrown the McLaws Circle location and with the addition of new products and service offerings at this new location and the added Car Care Center, we hope this expanded office will give members the opportunity to rediscover AAA with additional services and convenience. 58

What additional services will the new location offer? The new AAA Williamsburg Center allows members to easily explore all that AAA has to offer including full access to travel services, trip planning and AAA membership information. What about the Care Care Center? A state-of-the-art AAA owned and operated Car Care Center has been added for all automotive maintenance and repair needs. It offers members and non-members a variety of services including oil changes, tire rotations, state inspections, alignments as and major repairs. What are some of the standard services customers can expect? AAA members will receive the same high quality service and products they have come to expect from their AAA

membership. Customers can still expect to receive the same level of travel agency services they received at the old Williamsburg office, but with a new opportunity to explore options in the new Travel Center. What about customer service? Our customer service motto is“Do what’s right for the member by exceeding our members’ expectations through valuable products and legendary service.” – Ann Efimetz
