Best Month of the Year You’ve heard it from me before -June is the best month of the year! It is also the month we launch our Ninth Annual Best of Warrenton awards. Centered in this issue is the list of categories. Warrenton features some of the finest places, people, services and shops you will find anywhere. We, at Warrenton Lifestyle and Piedmont Press, are proud of our local businesses and delighted that we found a way for you, the community, to honor and promote a large majority of them. Look at the enclosed listings, go online and complete your choices through our website at www. warrentonlifestyle.com. There are a few new categories while some were eliminated and we’ve removed eligibility for many of the big box/chain stores. There is a pull down menu for almost each category to simplify your choices and make our tabulation process more automated. And, you

could win our big $300 cash prize just for entering! Looking for things to do in June? Look no further. Here are some of my favorites: Friday, June 6, offers us another First Friday on Main Street. My family and I enjoy these community evenings immensely. The children have a great time and Holly and I revel in the neighborly conversations. Music, crafts, food and, of course, many of our local merchants will remain open. This is a pet friendly event but please clean up after them. Sunday, June 16th, is Father’s Day, an obvious favorite of mine being a dad of four terrific children. There is nothing better than to hang out with my family and take a visit to downtown to see the Father’s Day Car Show on Main Street followed by some ice cream. The show is sponsored by the Greater Warrenton Chamber of

Commerce, for more information please visit www.warrentonchamber.org. On Saturday evenings throughout the summer, families, neighbors and visitors gather for the Bluemont Outdoor Concert Series in Warrenton across from St. James Church on Culpeper Street. Enjoy jazz, bluegrass, Celtic music, rock, rhythm and blues, zydeco, African dance, folk music and more. Many families bring picnics to enjoy during the show. No pets or alcohol. For more information call (540) 341-0988 or visit www. bluemont.org. For a full list, review Krysta’s compilation titled Warrenton Happenings in this issue. So, pick up a sport, join a 5K race, grab some clubs for a golf tournament, explore our parks (try Whitney Forest), visit our local wineries, go for a swim, dine al fresco, take a walk or ride a bike trail. Get out! June is the best, enjoy!

Warrenton Farmer’s Market Surrounded by bucolic fields, active land and hardworking farmers, Warrenton is the ideal location for a thriving and lively farmers market. This season marks thirtynine years that area farmers and craftsman have been providing residents with vibrant produce, fresh meat and agricultural products straight from Fauquier County and the Commonwealth. Every weekend families, neighbors, business owners, local chefs and more can be seen grabbing must have items for the week. Organized and managed by the Planning & Community Development department with Town of Warrenton, the market - simply put - works to connect growers with shoppers. Understanding the importance of shopping local, early on the town initiated a rule to keep all of the products available from Virginia. farmer’s market continued on page 10

at two locations each week. Located at the corner of South 5th Street and Lee Street vendors set up shop on Saturdays in the municipal parking lot. Two rows of colored tents create a wide alley for shoppers to peruse items like fruits, vegetables, flowers and baked goods.

Sarah Mobius and Bart Terburg run Great Oak Farm in Rixeyville. They specialize in freerange, humanely raised non-GMO poultry.

As stated in their market guidelines, “The Warrenton Farmer’s Market is a Virginia Grown Market which means produce and fruits sold must be grown at farms located within the Commonwealth of Virginia. As the Warrenton Farmer’s Market purpose is based on the local agricultural base, emphasis is first placed on the selling of local products produced by the registered vendor.”

Evelyn Williams of Cooch’s Homemade Baked Goods located in Warrenton is a farmers’ market veteran, bringing with her each week an assortment of cakes, ham biscuits, cookies, pies, apple dumplings and more. “I’ve been doing this for a long time, almost 27 years on Saturdays,” Williams said. “I prepare throughout the week, some things take longer than others to make but by the time Saturday comes I’m ready.” Her homemade lemonade is quite popular among shoppers and vendors alike.

Other seasoned Fauquier vendors include Susan Olinger of Sue’s Pies & More in Warrenton offers fruits, cider, pumpkins and baked goods; Debbie and Larry Day of The Green Thumb in Sumerduck bring vegetables, fruits, plants, herbs and flowers; Fauquier County Master Gardeners are there with agriculture education information and plants; Thea Green and Diana Wright with Turtle Mountain Farm have vegetables, figs and soaps from Marshall. Sarah Mobius and Bart Terburg set up from Great Oak Farm in Rixeyville with freerange, humanely raised, nonGMO poultry

George Williams with Primrose Farm holds up one of his watercolor paintings that are available at the market on Satudays.

Approximately 25 vendors are registered for this season with seven from Fauquier County and the remaining from areas like Alexandria, Culpeper, Madison, Rappahanock, Shenandoah, Tappahanock, Warsaw and Westmoreland counties. With this reach outside of the county, a variety of fruits and vegetables unavailable during certain growing seasons are now available to Warrenton residents. “We come every week in the summer,” one shopper said. “It’s the best way to get fresh vegetables and fruit for our family – and our kids love coming because they can sometimes get free samples!” A seven month long season, the market is open from April through October with vendors 10

products for people and dogs. “I started making dog smoothies because I got conscious about the food I was feeding my dogs,” Mobius said. Her dog smoothies are made with all natural ingredients like chicken, potatoes, flax, avocado, apples and blueberries. “I try my recipes out on my dogs at home, if the picky one eats it then I know it’s a success!” Fragrant flowers fill the booth from Primrose Farm located in Nokesville, run by George and Kathleen Williams. Along with their bright flower arrangements shoppers will find a basket filled with various hand-painted watercolors available for purchase.

The Warrenton Farmer’s Market is open on Saturdays in the municipal parking lot on the corner of South 5th Street and Lee Street from 7am to 12 noon as well as Wednesdays on Hopsital Hill near the Bistro from 7am to 1:30pm.

“I love watercolor,” George said as he thumbed through to pull one of his favorite recent works. The basket was filled with paintings of colorful flowers and animals, which would make a perfect accent in any home or a thoughtful gift. On Wednesdays, Hospital Hill in front of the Bistro hosts the market. Although a tad smaller than the turnout on Saturdays the products are just as sought after. Vendors like Dina Callow of Dream Keeper Farm in Marshall sets up her booth with goat meat and products. The Shenandoah Spice Company is present with Joshua Burrows selling dried herbs, spices and seasonings ideal for summer grilling. Jim and Robin Rider bring their meat, eggs, condiments and soap from their farm, Rider’s Backfield Farm, in Etlan. “It’s easy for me to get here during the week with the kids in school,” a shopper commented. “I like being able to meet the farmers and know where my food comes from. It’s the best part about this town, I can honestly say I know the man who grew my vegetables.”

Evelyn Williams of Cooch’s Homemade Baked Goods and The Green Thumb Farm in Sumerduck run by Larry and Debbie Day are at the farmer’s market on Saturdays. Below, herbs, plants and flowers can be purchased from many local vendors.

The Warrenton Farmers Market is open on Saturdays from 7:00am to 12:00 noon and Wednesdays from 7:00am to 1:00pm. For more information about the farmer market or to download an application to participate please visit the Town of Warrenton’s website at www. warrentonva.gov, give them a call at (540) 347-2405 or find the market on Facebook for pictures, updates and more. 12

This June marks several exciting initiatives for the Greater Warrenton Chamber of Commerce (GWCC), a few of which are not only for our members, but are targeted to the Greater Warrenton Community as a whole. First being the 18th Annual Father’s Day Car Show in Old Town Warrenton. We had the pleasure of partnering on the event in 2012 with the Partnership For Warrenton and becoming the host in 2013. Thousands of families and car show enthusiasts attend this event each year to experience the classics cars, unique vehicles and celebrate Dad! With the continued support of Country Chevrolet and other members of the business community, we plan to make this year’s show the best yet, with various food vendors, participation from some of the Old Town Merchants, and of course some great cars, trucks, bikes and even tractors! This year’s show will be held once again on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 15th from 9:00-3:00 p.m. (rain date for event is Sunday, June 22nd, same time). We hope you, your family and friends will join us to carry on the tradition!

The second represents one of the many ways our organization is working to connect the Greater Warrenton Community with our local businesses as well as increase the exposure 14

member businesses have with one another. Our chamber’s philosophy for sharing business is that people do business with those they “like, know and trust.” The concept is very simple, but how do we get the average citizen in Fauquier County (approximately 70% of which commute outside the county on a regular basis) to know and trust our local business owners? Through the efforts of our dedicated Board of Directors, we have found a step toward a solution. Between 1998 and 2008, George Rowand was the business editor of the Fauquier Times Democrat (now the Fauquier Times). Every week, Rowand would have a piece focusing on a particular Fauquier County business. “Each business was unique and interesting,” says Rowand. “And an indicator of the creativity and drive we have in this county.” Rowand will now be reviving his articles. The difference is that his articles will appear on the website of the Greater Warrenton Chamber and in the Chamber’s newsletter. Bert van Gils, the President of the GWCC said, “For my money, George’s articles were amongst the most interesting and enjoyable parts of the paper and I am so happy he volunteered to do this for us.” Rowand’s enthusiasm for small businesses and his writing ability help to solve a problem that van Gils says all business organizations struggle with. Although the GWCC has many educational and networking opportunities, not all members can regularly attend these events. Many business owners cannot afford to leave the business at any time during the day and many have difficulty knowing how to effectively market themselves to the community as a whole. “I told George that I am especially interested in those we don’t regularly hear from,” van Gils stated. “We need to tell our members we are interested in all of them and we want all of our members and the community to know more about the interesting people we have in our Chamber.” Rowand will be visiting member businesses with a photographer or a photographer may come at a

George Rowand separate time to take pictures. “We have many photographers in our Chamber and we will give them all an opportunity to publicize their work on a rotating basis,” van Gils said. “The articles and photos will be featured on our webpage and other publications and are free to republish if they choose. The more publicity for our member businesses and non-profits, the better,” van Gils said. Rowand is a member of the Board of Directors of the GWCC as well as a freelance writer and a horse race enthusiast who has written a book called Diary of a Dream: My Journey in Thoroughbred Racing. He lives with his wife, Rita and four cats in Orlean. His son, Michael is presently studying and working in Shanghai, China. Please take the time to visit this new blog, get to know our local business owners, and shop local! www.warrentonchamber.org/ category/blog_posts Michele Flores Executive Director Greater Warrenton Chamber www.warrentonchamber.org 540-229-8925

Highland Students Benefit from Connection with Maasai School in

by Lauren R. Giannini

In 2001, Rick and Alice Laimbeer had no clue that their first safari (Swahili for journey) to East Africa would have a major impact on their lives and also involve the entire Highland School community. Yet, that’s exactly what happened. “When we first visited Kenya, a new law mandated that one child from each family in the nation attend school through eighth grade,” recalled Alice Laimbeer, who has taught art at Highland since 1995. “That education was “free,” but the families had to pay for books and uniforms, which many can’t afford. Rick and I wanted to do something to help, so when we got back, I started talking with members of the faculty and they were very interested in helping, too. We came up with the idea of recognizing Enkijape as our sister school.” That status became official in 2002. In late June 2003, the Laimbeers with their children, Margot (11) and Parker (15), returned to Kenya and

personally launched the connection between the two schools, which continues to grow stronger. “The Enkijape program expanded our kids’ boundaries and relationships with the rest of the world,” said Laimbeer. “We can all make a difference. Each year, our international week has gotten bigger and bigger. Our children learn important lessons about other cultures and people who aren’t as privileged. They have learned the importance of giving back. They return from Kenya with a better understanding of what it means to live green. There is no electricity in the bush. Everything runs on solar power. They learn that water, the essence of life, is precious. It’s a real eye-opener when the kids experience firsthand how scarce water is in East Africa.” The giving back takes many forms. In 2007, the first official Highland School contingent, led by the Laimbeers, experienced its first ecosafari to Kenya. The demand was so

great that, instead of going every two years, the Laimbeers have coordinated annually with Tamsin Corcoran of New African Territories (Nairobi, Kenya) who designs the perfect itinerary. Mutual interest in wildlife conservation, eco-tourism and education led to the Laimbeers becoming allies and friends with Corcoran and her photographer-game guide husband, Chris Brennan. They also connected with Richard Bonham, owner of Ol Donyo Was Lodge on the slopes of the Chyulu Hills in the heart of the Mbirikani Group Ranch in southeast Kenya. “One of the things Richard Bonham impressed upon me from day one is the importance of educating the children at Enkijape and at other schools on the ranch about the wildlife,” Laimbeer said. “The Maasailand Preservation Trust

motto used to be Wildlife Helping People. They were trying to get the local peoples to understand the importance of conserving the animals and how it would benefit their communities. I have embraced that. I teach conservation to the children. Sometimes I will bring one of the guides from Ol Donyo and we talk about the different animals, why they’re so special and why the children should be aware of the importance of conserving them. As a fun highlight, we’ll do some art projects related to the animals. Most of them have never even seen art supplies. It’s a win-win for me as an art teacher and a real treat for the children.” AMAZING JOURNEY Most of the 23 students and parents from Highland are first-timers to Kenya. Yet, they’re very aware that their exotic getaway, June 15–July 1, embraces a far greater purpose than any ordinary summer holiday. The educational and cultural exchange with Enkijape is something that all prospective Highland students and parents learn about from the start. “It was discussed in the admissions process that Highland had a sister school in Kenya. My wife Beth and I thought we would have to get there at some point, but we didn’t

Our sons, Gordon (10th grade) and Henry (7th grade), are going too. Working with the Maasai children at the school, building furniture, planting trees, seeing the birds and the wildlife – we’re excited about everything.” Planting trees is for Highland

senior Finley Broaddus, who is battling a rare form of liver cancer. “Finley started a program called Finley’s Green Leap Forward Fund,” explained Laimbeer. “She made two grants with the money that she raised, one is going to a tree conservation group in Kenya, which is really cool with our sister school being in Kenya. Finley’s a great kid and so interested in conservation and green programs worldwide. So we’re going to honor her by planting lots of trees around Enkijape.” Highland will also Pack For A Purpose. “On British Airways, all passengers can take two bags, 51-pounds each, and we encourage everyone to devote that second bag to Enkijape and fill it with school supplies, medical supplies, books, pencils, pens, dictionaries, solar calculators, etc,” Laimbeer said. “They need everything we can take to them. We had a huge drive for Legos and the kids will get introduced to Legos while we are there and everyone will take some home.” HIGHLAND & HOPE Enkijape is one of 11 Maasai schools located within the 275,000 acres of the Mbirikani Ranch Group between Amboselli and Tsavo National Parks.

This summer, Highland will stay at Ol Donyo for six days, plenty of time to build furniture, teach, share ideas and enjoy the wildlife. Margot Laimbeer (2014, Elon University), her parents, her uncle and anyone else interested will also spend a few days at Inkoisuk School, adopted officially in 2012 by her sorority, Tri Sigma, as part of their on-going philanthropy work.

“I was 11 the first time I traveled to Kenya – about the same age as some of the students at Enkijape – it was completely life-changing and flipped my world upside down,” Margot said. “So far this year, Delta Beta, our chapter of Tri Sigma, has raised about $1,000 and we hope to raise more. We’re working on a scholarship so that a young boy with excellent grades can go to high school. I’m looking forward to staying involved with Tri Sigma and with Inkoisuk for a long time.” Highland hopes to generate local interest in the other schools on the Mbirikani Group Ranch. “We would love to see churches and businesses get involved with the other schools near Enkijape and Inkoisuk,” said Alice Laimbeer. “The need is great for financial assistance to encourage Maasai children to make the most of their lives. The winner of the first scholarship Highland sponsored at Enkijape had the highest grade-point average and was most deserving. Jeremiah’s about to graduate from college – a wonderful kid, very cool student. We’re planning to bring him over here, to continue his education and talk about Kenya and the importance of wildlife conservation. When people here and in Kenya see what education can do for young Maasai, it will make a huge difference.” Children really do live what they learn.

Part 1, published in May 2014, dealt with the early lives of Robert C. “Bobby” Winmill and his wife Viola Townsend Winmill. Bobby was born near Warrenton and built a successful career as a stockbroker in New York; Viola was a native New Yorker and equestrienne. The Winmills purchased Clovelly, on the Springs Road, in 1925, and were active in the community. During the late 1920s and 1930s, the Winmills enjoyed spending time in New York and Warrenton, as well as taking frequent trips abroad. Bobby’s brokerage firm, Gude, Winmill & Co., continued to grow. Through his real estate company, Colonial Estates Inc., Bobby acquired more property

in Fauquier County, including the abandoned Fauquier White Sulphur Springs property and Waverley, both on the Springs Road. In September 1929 – two months before the Stock Market Crash – Bobby opened a branch office of Gude, Winmill & Co. in the California Building in Warrenton, owned by his brother, Edgar W. “Bunny” Winmill. Manager of the Warrenton office was Chaffraix LeLong, assisted by Bunny Winmill. Like all U.S. brokerage firms, Gude, Winmill & Co. struggled as the Great Depression dragged on. The Warrenton office was closed temporarily in the spring of 1931, reopening by the end of the year. Later,

it was announced that the office would close for good at the end of November 1934, but Bobby opted instead to downsize to a single office. The rest of the space was rented to the U.S. Government Wheat Control office. In 1935, Viola acquired a 100-acre parcel south of Clovelly known as “Part North Wales,” and over the next two years “…significantly remodeled an extant farmhouse (which she called Whiffletree Manor)” as a guesthouse, according to architectural historian Heather McMahon. Viola’s good friend, architect Henri “Tappy” De Heller, assisted her with the design changes. It should be noted that a “whiffle tree” is a swinging bar that connects harness to a horse-drawn carriage.

The Winmills Lived Life to the Fullest Pt. 2: With the war comes tragedy by John T. Toler

By her mid-70s, Viola Winmill had to give up foxhunting, but still enjoyed riding, accompanied by long-time farm manager, John Mason McClanahan “in close attendance.”

The Winmill children grew up, and went to school and college. Marriages soon followed. In May 1938, eldest daughter Viola “Olie” married Randolph Duffey, of The Plains, at St. James Episcopal Church in Warrenton. Three more weddings took place in 1942: in July, Allen Townsend “Towny” married Dorothy “Dot” Ball in Colorado Springs, where he was in pilot training in the U.S. Army Air Force; the following September, Virginia married Robert Radsch at St. James; and in November, Josephine “Joe” married Ens. John Austin, USNR, in New York.

With the children gone, the cost of maintaining the large stable was no longer practical. On Sept. 21, 1940, the Winmills held a large dispersal sale, auctioning 55 of the 80 horses at Clovelly.


Even before America entered World War II, the Winmills were affected by the conflict. During the Nazi air attacks on English cities in 1940, the British War Relief Society arranged for a number of children and their teachers to be evacuated to Canada and the U.S., including a group that stayed at Clovercroft, Eugene Meyer’s estate across the road from Clovelly. Viola often gave the children rides in her carriages, or had them come to the farm to play or ride horses. As a result of their kindness, in the fall of 1941, the Winmills had an unexpected visit from the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. Bobby had met the Duchess in 1927, when she was Mrs. Wallis Warfield Spencer. At the time, she was living at the Warren Green Hotel in order to establish legal residency and get her first divorce. Now, she was back in Fauquier as the wife of ex-King Edward VIII. “Bobby and the Duke took an immediate liking to each other, and Bobby spent many fun-filled afternoons playing bridge with them,” wrote family historian Virginia Winmill Livingstone Armstrong in “Gone Away” With the Winmills (1977). The Winmills later entertained the Royal couple at Whiffletree.

In October 1941, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor (far left, far right) visited the Winmills at Whiffletree, where a cocktail party was given in their honor in the coach barn. 26

Due to declining membership, the owners of the North Wales Club – a group of 40 mostly New York businessmen – wanted to sell the property. As a member of the club and president of the company that arranged

the acquisition in 1929, the board of directors asked Bobby to handle the sale. Initially unable to find a buyer, Bobby scheduled an auction to take place in May 1941. But two days before the auction, he was contacted by Walter P. Chrysler Jr. (1909-1988), son of the auto magnate, who offered to buy the 78-room mansion and 2,000 acres surrounding it for $175,000. The offer was accepted, and in the years that Chrysler owned North Wales, the Winmills considered him a good neighbor and friend. With the declarations of war on Japan and Germany, many local men enlisted before they received their draft notices, and family members on the homefront contributed to the war effort in many ways. Viola joined the local Red Cross Motor Corps, which assisted war casualties when they returned home,

as well as providing transportation for the families of servicemen while they were away. There were blackouts, rationing – and more sacrifices. “With none of the children living at home and wartime austerity in force, Bobby and Viola decided to move into Whiffletree as their yearround residence, and Clovelly was put up for rent,” according to Mrs. Armstrong.

TRAGIC FIRST MISSION Towny Winmill had always worked hard, graduating from St. Mark’s in Massachusetts, Harvard University (Class of 1937), and earning a law degree from Yale.

Either for investment or a future homesite, Towny acquired property in Fauquier County, including a large tract near Marshall and 13 acres adjacent to Fauquier Springs. He also purchased the California Building from his uncle Bunny Winmill in 1938.

Whiffletree Manor, as it appeared in 1938. The house was extensively remodeled and updated by Viola Winmill and her architect, Henri ‘Tappy’ De Heller. Towny passed the New York bar exam and was working for a law firm when the U.S. entered World War II. Committed to do his part, he joined the U.S. Army Air Force, and was originally trained as a fighter pilot, flying the twin-engine P-38 “Lightning.” Towny was promoted to captain, and assigned to the Air Transport Command (ATC). He was trained to fly the C-87 transport (a cargo version of the B-24 bomber), and received orders to go to the 1327th AAF Base Unit at Tezpur, in northeast India. Robert “Pooch” McClanahan recalls Towny’s last visit home before going overseas. He flew into Washington National Airport in a P-38, where he was met by Pooch’s father, John Mason McClanahan, and driven home to Whiffletree. After a few days in Warrenton, John Mason took Towny back to the airport, where he made a spectacular – if unauthorized – high-speed take-off in his fighter. “He knew he was going

overseas, so he didn’t give a damn,” noted Pooch. And as promised, Towny buzzed the two schools in Warrenton where Pooch and his brother Everett were watching for him. The mission of Towny’s transport unit was to fly supplies, ammunition and fuel over “the Hump” (the Himalayas) to Allied bases in China. As the co-pilot on a four-man crew, Towny’s first flight over “the Hump” began late in the evening of Oct. 9. 1944. Their destination was the airfield at Kwanghan, in Szeechwan Province. They completed the rough, four-hour flight over the mountains, unloaded their cargo, and re-fueled for the return flight. They took off at 4:55 a.m., but soon afterward, the No. 1 engine sputtered and stopped, followed by the other three. A “mayday” call was transmitted at 5:58 a.m. as the aircraft dropped from the sky. All four airmen parachuted from the stricken aircraft, and the next day, an ATC Rescue Team was immediately

sent to the area of the crash. However, the dense jungle had swallowed up the plane and the crew. It took five days before the first crewman was located in a remote village – exhausted but unhurt – and two more survivors were found over the next two days. But Towny Winmill was never found, despite two more searches by the ATC, including one coordinated effort that lasted a full week. The uncertainty of their son’s fate took an extreme toll on Bobby and Viola, and was particularly hard on his wife, Dot, who was caring for their infant daughter, Elizabeth. “The loss of such a close and interested companion in life left a deep void for all of them,” wrote Mrs. Armstrong. A year after the crash, Capt. Winmill was “administratively declared dead.” In memory of their son, the Winmills made the gift of a stained glass window in St. James Episcopal Church in Warrenton. It was dedicated on June 22, 1948 by the Rev. Paul D. Bowden.

Part 3 of the Winmills will continue on page 66. 30

Confidence in your

by Michelle Kelley, LCSW

Intuition is the calm, small voice

inside of you that speaks up at unexpected times. It is the ability to “just know” about a person, situation or decision without having to investigate. We have all experienced a hunch about something or someone; that’s our intuition. Some people call it “a sixth sense,” but either way, intuition is real, not imagined. We are born with it and it is our gift to claim. However, we have become so reliant on facts or logical thinking to make decisions that we often block our quiet, inner voice. Just as Albert Einstein said, “The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.” When was the last time you listened to your intuition… or did not? What was the outcome? How Your Intuition Speaks to You •

You had a sense of fear or danger about a situation.

You had a nagging sense that you need to do something like go to the doctor or take a different route to work.



You felt very uncomfortable around someone you just met but couldn’t pinpoint a reason.

You had a “vision” that was reminiscent of déjà vu but you knew it was yet to be.

You feel as though you are not doing what you are meant to do in life.

It has been said that women have an edge when it comes to reading people or being a good judge of character. This, in part, may be due to being socialized differently than men. Women and girls may hear the advice “listen to your gut” more often than men. Certainly girls and women are asked more frequently how they feel about something (usually by another female) and this encourages them to dig deeper and search for their connection to intuition even if they don’t realize it. Furthermore, for women, learning to connect with intuition is directly linked to healthy self-esteem. See, when a woman ignores her intuition there is an emotional price to pay. Have you ever second-guessed yourself about a decision, didn’t go with your instinct and then regretted

it? Think back to multiple choice questions on an exam and how your first guess was usually the correct one but you changed your mind after over thinking it. Or you had a suspicion your significant other was cheating on you, but you “let it go” only to find out later it was true. We all have had these experiences. They should be reminding you to stop and think the next time you have a gut feeling about something. Men can also be highly intuitive; it’s not only a gift for women. Unfortunately, in our culture we tend to view intuition as feminine, not masculine. Boys are encouraged to be linear thinking (using logic) while girls are praised for being sensitive. We live in a mind-dominated culture and I believe it has caused many men to also lose touch with their intuition. I’ve heard many people – men and women – say that they don’t believe they have intuition… but everyone does! The problem is that many have been raised or socialized in a way which did not facilitate a connection to their gut feelings. Plain and simple. continued on page Warrenton Lifestyle

June 2014


continued from page In our society we place a great deal of emphasis on the connection to the mind. This is reinforced in traditional schools. It’s all about how smart we are, instead of HOW we are smart. Some people have a higher level of emotional intelligence. Others are more academic and have more book knowledge. One is not truly better than the other. They are different yet equally important! While intuition by itself is effective, the most powerful combination is learning to use your mind and intuition together. It doesn’t have to be an either or situation and it shouldn’t be. For example, recently I was working with a client who needed to make a decision about which job to choose. I asked her to close her eyes and visualize each work place, paying close attention to her body and emotions. It was difficult for her (as it would be for most of us) to stop her mind from making a pros/cons list. I wanted her to merely connect with her gut, nothing more. Later, we also made a list of pros and cons, taking into consideration salary, travel and other factors. She eventually made a decision she felt good about. What you may not realize is that there are actually neurotransmitters in the gut just as there are in the brain. Therefore, I never suggest that a person only tap into their intuition when making major decisions. There is value in combining intuition with the mind.

I have such confidence in our intuition that I routinely encourage my clients to listen to their intuition, especially if it’s a situation that involves danger. There’s really nothing to lose. I also encourage parents to teach their children how to listen to their gut. Connecting with your intuition is vital to your emotional well-being. If you believe you have lost the ability to distinguish when your intuition is speaking, it is possible to reconnect. How to Connect to Your Intuition •

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift”

Silence the mental chatter. You will need to quiet your mind -- the constant mental chatter that many of us experience. In order to do this, you may need to learn how to quiet it through meditation or a relaxing activity. Silence is golden and it’s also an essential component of connecting to intuition. Distract your mind. Engage in something you really enjoy which will keep you in the present moment and better able to hear your intuition. You should do this anyway as it helps increase creativity as well as productivity. Pay attention – inwardly. Your body is speaking to you. Some aches and pains or upset tummies are not caused by illness.

- Albert Einstein -

Distinguish fear from intuition. Fear of a new situation or change may simply be your reluctance to come out of your comfort zone.

One last tip: Practice. Practice. Practice. Once you get into the habit of listening to your inner voice (not the voices in your head), intuition will come to you more freely and you’ll find that the choices you make in your life are better ones.

MEET THE MAYOR-ELECT, POWELL DUGGAN Two big changes are coming in the next month, the annual progression of seasons from spring to summer and a change in Warrenton’s leadership. As a community we will say farewell to long-time Mayor George Fitch and two active town councilmen David Norden and Roger Martella and welcome a warm summer as well as the Mayor-Elect Powell Duggan and two new town council additions Sean Polster and Sunny Reynolds. Taking charge, Duggan will encourage positive improvements within the town and build a stronger sense of community through lasting relationships. Duggan’s roots lead him back down to Georgia. At the age of 19 he set out on a two wheel journey to bike from his home state to Canada. This adventure lead him right through Virginia where he fell in love with the landscape and people. “I took the scenic route with a lot of detours, pedaling over 1,300 miles and hitchhiking for 300 more,” Duggan said. “This experience taught me that people are basically good; so many people along the way welcomed and encouraged me.” He’s been a resident in Virginia for almost four decades calling the Shenandoah Valley and the Piedmont home. He received his B.A. from George Mason University and his J.D. from Washington & Lee University School of Law. He found his way to Warrenton by way of Winchester, as a June 2014

clerk for a law firm while completing his degree. “During my spring break of my second year my boss, Henry Whiting (who later became a Virginia Supreme Court Justice), sent me to Warrenton to work on a case with John Alexander,” Duggan explained. “He was one of the founders of what is now Walker Jones PC and while I was there I thought ‘What a wonderful place to work!’ and a few months later an opportunity was available. I started with the firm after finishing law school.” Duggan made Warrenton his home in 1980 when he joined Walker Jones PC. Since then he has been dedicated to making this town a better place through leadership and volunteerism. He mentioned his favorite charitable organization was the Fauquier Health Foundation. “I was blessed to have served as its General Counsel from 1986 through 2013 when it (Fauquier Hospital) merged with LifePoint,” Duggan commented. “Now it’s the Fauquier Health Foundation, which, in the coming decades, will be a tremendous asset to the community. He has also serves as a member of the Warrenton Rotary Club. He received sponsorship from long-time friend, mentor and former Mayor Bill Lineweaver, who recognized Duggan’s ability to selflessly give. Since his induction into the civic organization

Mayor Duggan and his wife Nancy he has served in many capacities including President. He also held the same title for Hospice Support of Fauquier County and worked as an active town council member. His volunteer activities will continue to grow this month as he takes office as the Mayor of the Town of Warrenton. “This is a special community,” Duggan said. “Warrenton has grown


into a diverse, vibrant community filled with citizens, workers and businesses committed to service and volunteerism, yet it has been able to retain its small town charm. I simply don’t know of a better town.” Hoping to make a seamless transition, Duggan will look at mayoral leadership of the past to strengthen the relationship between the town residents, government and businesses. “Something as simple as a smile or a wave at someone on the street,” Duggan used as an example when talking about building a better sense of community. In addition to the strong leadership of the past he hopes to bring his own personal traits to the town with his experience in bringing people together to reach common goals, his sense of humor and the patience and tolerance he acquired from his father - each a notable and worthy characteristic. “I want to do what I can to make Warrenton an even better place to live, while preserving its uniqueness,” he said.

DUGGAN’S FAVORITES ACTIVITIES: Spending time with his wife Nancy and friends, walking by dog Buddy, floating down the Shenandoah River, listening to music, watching Westerns, hiking and cheering on the Nats. BOOKS: The Brothers Karamazov, The River of Doubt, Devil in the White City MUSIC: Jazz, Rock-n- Roll and folk. Although, lately I’ve been listening to The Modern Jazz Quartet and Jesse Winchester and The Band. MOVIES: Top Gun and Lonesome Dove


Coming into office he has a list of priorities he’d like to work on with the help of the town council as well as the support from Warrenton residents. Duggan wants to encourage new ideas and work toward a positive culture of ‘how can we do that?” - especially with business owners and town council members because their role in the community is immensely important. “I’d like to engage businesses to see what the town can do bring shoppers to Warrenton,” Duggan mentioned about the relationship. “ And streamline applications to make it easier for businesses to thrive.” Warrenton has some of the prettiest parks and trails in Virginia and are widely used by residents and visitors alike, wanting to improve them Duggan would like move forward with suggestions to have a trail that connects Rady Park to the WARF. This would provide safe pedestrian access and an additional recreational trail for runners, bicyclists, walkers and more. He mentioned other parks that needed a little tender loving care. “In particular I would like to see considerable new work at Academy Hill Park,” Duggan said. “This park is easily accessible by foot and vehicle. In the current budget there are funds to study how this could be better utilized and some suggestions include adding a fence and dugouts to the softball fields, adding a dog park and planning for a basketball or tennis court.” Eva Walker Park and Rady Park are also on Duggan’s list with current plans to add bathrooms. He also would like to spruce up the area near the Greenway Trailhead by planting trees and adding benches and restrooms. These small upgrades would be very beneficial to community’s lifestyle. Duggan’s devotion to Warrenton is evident in his family, work and service. He will officially take office on June 30 and with his kind smile lead Warrenton in a way that preserves our tradition but embraces improvement. If you would like to personally welcome Mayor Duggan into office, make a comment or pass along a suggestion he can be reached at powell@powellduggan.com.

4-H Programs Offer Kids Fun Summer Activities

As summer hits this month, young people are pressuring their parents to look for fun activities to pass the time until school starts again in the fall. A great and active program in the community is the 4-H Club, a youth development organization that promotes leadership, citizenship and life skills through participation in their clubs, contests, camps and more. Lenah Nguyen the Youth Development Extension Agent for the Fauquier County division of 4-H works to create activities that utilize their motto “To Make the Best Better!” With the support of adult volunteers, Nguyen has encouraged enrollment into the club where students can elect officers, learn to conduct meetings, plan programs, complete large projects and participate in community service assignments in and around the county. “The biggest misconception about 4-H is that people think we are solely focused on agriculture, when really it’s not even mentioned in our mission,” Nguyen said. “We help kids develops strong public speaking skills, confidence and proper parliamentary procedure. Some of these kids we’ve trained run meetings better than most adults.” She continued to add that their mission is to provide programs to the community that have a foundation of three concepts: healthy living, STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and citizen development. “The projects that we do are always handon learning and fun, but ultimately we are trying to create leaders and good citizens.” Affordable workshops, training and camps are available this summer that offer a variety of activities for students to participate in. Makers Mondays is a program designed to motivate children to learn about STEM. They will use their creativity to make wonderful creations in this six session series. Students will turn a banana into a piano, paint with LED’s, make a drawing robot and more. This program is open to nine to thirteen year old students and begins on Monday June 16 at 6:00pm and runs through July 21. The cost is $15.

Business Succession: Questions You Need to Ask by Nicholas Sicina

It’s not unusual for business owners to find that the majority of their wealth is mostly tied up in their businesses, which can be a major provider for them and their families. But when the time comes for them to sell their businesses because of a lifechanging event such as retirement, many business owners often have not quantified how they would replace that important chunk of income. Business succession can be an emotional, financial, and timing issue for business owners. If you own your own business and are considering a business succession plan, there are five questions you should address with your Financial Advisor. Together you will want to ensure you have a plan in place to mitigate the risks associated with one of your most important assets. What other assets have you set aside to help fund your retirement? The recent economic recession has brought home the concerns about relying on your business alone to fund retirement. Just as your investments should be diversified, so should your assets. Though it may be difficult to do in a challenging business climate, business owners should save and accumulate retirement assets away from the business to make progress toward your retirement goals.

Have you considered whether your business is an asset you can sell? Whether or not you can find a buyer for your business depends on a variety of factors, including whether there are employees or partners who could continue to run the business after you retire or whether your business is the type to attract outside buyers. For example, companies that produce tangible goods and have positive cash flows can often be sold. On the other hand, specialty firms that rely on you and your skills alone, such as boutique consulting firms, are generally not salable. The truth is most businesses fall somewhere in between.

If you were to sell your business and pay the taxes on your gains, would the proceeds be enough to last for the rest of your life? It’s important that you determine if you will need to derive a similar level of income in retirement that you now enjoy from your business. As a business owner, you likely work very hard and your dedicated efforts are an important ingredient to your business success. The investment returns from your growing business may well exceed the investment returns from a prudent investment portfolio. In the long run, however, the income derived from your valuable work ethic simply may not be replaceable. Business owners are often optimists by nature, and they take

risks to grow their business. The risk of putting all your eggs in one basket may not work as well, however, when it comes time to build an investment portfolio. What happens if you cannot be involved in running your business? Stories abound about business owners who are struck down by illness, death or disability, leaving business partners and spouses to figure out what comes next. If more than one partner or shareholder is involved in your business, it is important to have a buy-sell agreement in place. A buysell is a written agreement between two or more owners of a business. If a triggering event occurs, one or more owners will have the right or obligation to buy the business interest from the owner who is obligated to sell. Triggering events often include the death, divorce, or disability of a partner or shareholder. The agreement may establish a funding mechanism to facilitate the purchase of an owner’s interest in such cases. Do you have a plan in place that will allow you to retire regardless of a sale? The current business environment is a reminder that you may not be able to sell your business at the precise time you wish to sell. Planning for succession in a small business should be a top priority. Begin with the objectives you want to achieve, and talk through these concerns with your Financial Advisor. Together you can help to ensure that you have the plan, the capital, and the agreements in place to transition your business when the time is right or when life events require succession in your business.

Retire Towards What? DR. IADELUCA ANSWERS AGE-OLD QUESTION by Dr. Robert Iadeluca

More and more often I am being asked: “When are you going to retire?” When I ask why they are wondering, the answer usually refers in general to my age or, if they know the specifics, the fact that I am 93. Well, yes, I guess I am. I usually don’t think of my age unless they call it to my attention. But why should I retire when I am having so much fun? Each morning I wake up ready for an enjoyable day and this includes my work as well as social activities. This is not to imply that my sessions with my patients are filled with giggling although there are humorous moments as well as the times when hands reach for the box of tissues. Joy for me means having the opportunity to bring happiness to those who are struggling through mental obstacles. It means seeing them enter my office with anxious expressions and smiling when they leave.

engaged coworkers accomplish.” Of those who love their jobs, one hundred percent cited the challenge of their work as the single biggest reason they enjoyed what they did. They solved problems and put their skills to good use. No two days were the same. I see patients from nine or ten a.m., almost hourly until six or seven p.m., five days a week. Their needs vary. Some are depressed; some are highly anxious. Others come to me with marital or relationship problems. They might be parents who are concerned about their children. At other times teenagers see me because of troubles at school or at home. Occasionally I see more serious

situations such as adults suffering from schizophrenia or bipolar disorder or children with deep issues who are cutting their arms or legs. For thirty years I have been part of this community, over 21 years practicing as a clinical psychologist. Living previously in Woodbridge and a member of their Lions Club, upon moving here I contacted the Warrenton Lions Club which put me in touch with other community leaders. This led me to becoming a member of the Warrenton Lions and later a member of the Fauquier Chamber of Commerce. I found it easy to get to know people of diverse interests in this

According to Gallup’s State of the American Workplace Report, 70% of American workers are not happy at their jobs, these statistics having remained steady since the year 2000. Baby Boomers have the lowest level of engagement at their occupations. Those who are not engaged, states Gallup, are just “sleepwalking through their workday, putting time, but not energy or passion, into their work.” Those who are actively disengaged “are busy acting out their unhappiness. Every day they undermine what their 54

Making the Right Decision in Hiring for Home Renovation Projects It was a typical Saturday afternoon for my friend and his four boys. They headed home for lunch with a quick nap for the youngest before they needed to go out again for a baseball game. His wife was at a meeting, so the five of them were on their own. When they stepped in the house, my friend noticed the smell of stale smoke. He did a quick search to see if he spotted something burning, but found nothing. He put the youngest down for his nap and started putting lunches together. His eldest, sensing something wasn’t right, asked him to search the house again. Armed with a kitchen knife, my friend made his way room to room a bit more thoroughly. This time, he stuck his hand in each closet and when he felt 58

someone’s arm, it took him a second or two to realize there was an intruder in his home. He quickly pulled the 24-year-old man out of the closet and ushered him out of the house. A few days later he was arrested and thankfully my friend and his family weren’t physically harmed. It was a happy ending for my friend and his family as well as a timely episode that helped me answers a question he posed to me several days prior. He is about to add a second floor to his house and he asked me, “Do I really need to hire a contractor to manage the project?” He is a professional civil engineer with management experience, he reasoned. He isn’t the first to ask me this question and I always chuckle to

myself when asked. What do they expect me to say? “You’re right, who needs a builder? Those guys are all overpaid and make things harder than they need to be.” Well, his experience with a home intruder made it quite easy to expand on the benefits of hiring a professional contractor; safety, time and experience are prerequisites for vetting any builder. Safety should be a priority when it comes to remodeling or building your new home. During the course of a major remodeling project, there could be more than 30 people who visit or work on your home; on average it takes more than 50 people to build a typical new home - give or take. Each person presents a potential risk to your family; that is why it is important Warrenton Lifestyle

to work with a reputable builder who has experience with each of his subcontractors and is on site when each trade is working. I don’t have to tell you that there are some shady characters that work in construction. Reputable builders work with reputable subcontractors. You may pay a little more, but the peace of mind knowing you are reducing your risk of something unfortunate happening should be worth it. I don’t know about you, but I often run out of the door without taking the time to eat breakfast. That is why I know the average homeowner does not usually have time to be his or her own general contractor. Nothing goes as planned in construction, especially in remodeling. For example, subcontractor has a question, someone calls in sick, it rains, material doesn’t show up or something got ordered wrong. I told my buddy that unless he planned to take the next five months off of work or he had the

most patient and reasonable boss in the world, he would learn firsthand how time consuming and stressful managing a construction project could be, especially a project that involves ripping the roof off of his warm and dry home. Construction is not rocket science, but it does take a special sort of patience and endurance to manage these types of projects. The final point I offered was experience. Sure, he is capable of designing a highway overpass or the steel structure for a large building, but that “simple” addition would begin to take over his life. From my own experience as a civil engineer, I know that once that overpass is designed, it will be built exactly per the plans or specifications. The transportation department doesn’t have to live on that overpass, nor are there fixtures to select or paint colors to choose. Better yet, the transportation department isn’t married.

I often joke with my clients that my second job title is marriage counselor. Not only does an experienced builder know how to navigate the waters of design questions and problem solving, but they should also be able to mediate the inevitable small arguments that sprout up between spouses. By the time I was done explaining, he was already on board with hiring a builder. In fact, he was doing the right thing and asking for referrals from friends and people in the trades. We had a good chat about his scary experience, how the boys are growing too fast and how he was looking forward to the work beginning on his house. Remember that your family’s safety is the most important during a construction project: do your research and hire someone reputable. You’ll enjoy the process knowing your family isn’t at risk and your project is running with the proper management.

Planting Seeds for Growth Grow, Learn & Thrive’s Discovery Garden at Vint Hill Tiny dirty hands, contagious laughter and bright plants fill a patch of land located at Vint Hill, the organization Grow, Learn & Thrive has created a Discovery Garden with the hopes of educating and inspiring young children. Understanding the importance of early childhood development Gwen Sadowski, the Founder and Executive Director of the organization, worked with a small team to build a stimulating environment with unlimited positive experiences for underprivileged children in the area to embrace.

The garden is an active and exciting place for kids to play and learn. Above: Co-founders Gwen Sadowski and Laurie Barnett sit on the handmade seats for children and families to read on. 62

Adventurous and expansive in size, the garden sits forty-five feet wide by one hundred and thirty-five feet long and is mapped with themed miniature gardens throughout. Mulched walkways lead from one feature to the next encouraging movement and exploration. There will be a variety of colors and types of flowers including a few indigenous and most of the others are heat and drought tolerant. In addition to flowers, vegetables were planted for nutrition as well as to exhibit diversity among the plants.

“The garden was designed and created to offer children the opportunity to learn about growing produce, herbs and flowers as well as the study of plants and the benefits of insect lifecycles all while enjoying playtime and exploration within a natural setting,” Sadowski explained. With the help of Grow, Learn & Thrive co-founder Laurie Barnett, volunteers, gardeners and board members the garden became a reality. Sadowski worked with Ed Moore of Brookside Communities, it was with his help and excitement that he offered to get approvals and prepare the soil. Moore reached out to Ronnie Smoot who trucked in approximately thirty dump truck loads of topsoil to make the garden productive. “I was aware that with some effort and planning, a vegetable/herb/flower garden could be designed to pique the children’s imaginations even on a fairly restricted budget,” she mentioned on the inception of the garden. “Ed and Ronnie Warrenton Lifestyle

said. “We do have frequent storytimes, craft activities and planting parties in the garden with the children.” Currently the garden serves children within the ages of two to thirteen years old. These children have participated in ladybug releases, insect lifecycle discussions, butterflies, vegetable lifecycles and their uses in food as well as the idea of peacefully sharing the garden with other small helpful creatures like toads. “It has become a place to meet, learn and socialize in addition to growing crops, Sadowski mentioned. “I believe it serves its purpose in that it has exposed children to gardening and to the many learning experiences that a garden can offer.”

really got the garden started for us with their hard work and it’s even bigger than I imagined.” Sadowski sketched out a plan for the creative garden that included growing vegetables and learning with outdoor play and exploration. Features the first year included a miniature corn maze and a pizza garden planted with tomatoes, herbs and peppers. The children at Vint Hill were also consulted, with the use of cut-outs, stickers and large posters they made collages to illustrate their dreams for the garden. “Their artistic renderings drove the ultimate design and implementation of the project and they have been involved in nearly every planting throughout the year,” she said.

Top Left: Sadowski helps a child plant in the pallet board garden Top Right: Vegetables, herbs and flowers all grow the in the garden. Bottom Right: Ronnie Smooth and Ed Moore were both active in getting the garden started. Their hardwork and dirt made the garden a reality for Sadowski and Barnett.

Built as a place for entertainment and encouragement, the families in transitional housing have been utilizing the tranquil space and greenery to continue to grow. The children especially enjoy the lending library, a small birdhouse-like building that holds children’s books to read. Protected in a weather resistant structure the books are left for tiny minds to absorb alone on the handmade wooden seats or with their parents as they cozy up under the shade of a tree. “In addition to independent reading children are encouraged to explore the garden with their parents when our volunteers aren’t present,” Sadowski


With no fences or restrictions the garden is truly a place where the kids can play. Families there have been encouraged to use the flowers and vegetables from the garden by taking only what they need and sharing with their neighbors. “I have seen the wonder in children’s eyes, I have watched faces light up as books were read and pure enthusiasm when they realized they could take and keep books at the end of a session,” Sadowski says of her recent experiences in the garden. “In this stress-free, informal environment, I have enjoyed the excitement of children sometimes not accustomed to this level of attention or respect almost in disbelief that I would build and place a lending library in their garden… and trust them with it. This garden has been a beautiful place of discovery, a place where children learn that they can grow their own dreams.” The Grow, Learn & Thrive Discovery Garden is located on Hunsberger Drive in Vint Hill. As the garden and projects continue to grow the organization is in need of volunteers, books and various materials. To donate new or gently used books please email Laurie at laurie@growlearnthrive.org. To sign up to volunteer or to make a monetary donation please email Gwen at gwen@growlearnthrive.org.

Postwar Brings Great Change for the Winmills by John T. Toler

Pt. 3: The ending of an era LIFE IN THE POSTWAR YEARS After the war, Viola joined the Warrenton Garden Club, and in November 1945, was elected president. She also continued her foxhunting activities. Because of the technological advances made during the war, there were significant new opportunities for investors, and Bobby became even more involved with the running of Gude, Winmill & Co. But by 1947, he announced that he was retiring, and actually cleared out his desk in the New York office. It didn’t last long. Within ten days, he was back at work at the Warrenton office, and the issue of retirement never came up again. On the night of Jan. 6, 1949, there was a three-alarm fire in the coach barn at Whiffletree, caused by a faulty electrical wire. The Warrenton Fire Company was called, and thanks to the quick response led by John Mason McClanahan – aided by neighbors, and a group of high school students brought to the scene by his son Everett – most of the coaches and wagons were pulled from the building, and saved. The damaged barn was later rebuilt and enlarged. Into the early 1950s, Viola became even more active in equestrian affairs. She attended Viola Winmill and Whiffletree Farm Manager John Mason McClanahan chat during an equestrian event in the 1940s. Courtesy of Robert ‘Pooch’ McClanahan. 66

formal dinners for past-and-present Masters of Foxhounds (MFHs), competed in the Devon Carriage Marathon in Pennsylvania, and exhibited her coach-and-four at the International Horse Show at Madison Square Garden in New York. In December 1952, she was contacted by officials of Wells, Fargo & Co. of California, with an interesting proposition: they were to represent California in the upcoming Inaugural Parade of Pres. Dwight D. Eisenhower, and they wanted to use one of their vintage pony express coaches. But there were two problems: they had no horses to pull it, and no one to drive them. Did she have any suggestions? Viola quickly volunteered her services, and on Jan. 19, 1953, John Mason brought the horses to Washington by van, and met with the Wells, Fargo & Co. representatives. Everything checked-out, and the next day, the horses were hitched to the coach, and without any practice, took their place in the parade down Pennsylvania Avenue. Viola, dressed

as a cowgirl, drove the horses, and the men assisting her wore cowboy outfits. It was great fun.


Later that year, Bobby put Clovelly up for sale. After two false starts, racing enthusiast N.B. Hunt of Dallas, Texas purchased the property. Interested mainly in the racing stable, Mr. Hunt never lived there, and eventually sold the property. Through the mid-1950s, Bobby and Viola had many things to look forward to, especially the visits by children and grandchildren, and traveling. They took what was to be their last trip overseas together in August 1956, sailing to England aboard the S.S. United States. While there, they visited friends in London, and flew to Ireland for the Dublin Horse Show. Bobby returned to work, but began having stomach pains. He was examined and nothing was found, but by mid-January 1957, his condition worsened, and it was discovered he had cancer. He came through a successful operation on Jan. 27, but on Jan. 30,

In her later years, Viola Winmill still enjoyed driving her coaches around Whiffletree, seen here accompanied by two footmen and led by her old friend, D. Harcourt Lees Jr. Courtesy of Robert ‘Pooch’ McClanahan.

he suffered a heart attack, and died the next day at age 72. A memorial service was held in New York City, followed by the funeral at St. James in Warrenton, and burial in the Warrenton Cemetery. His obituary in The Fauquier Democrat read, in part: “We knew Bobby quite well…. Prosperity never turned his head; he was a self-made man who deserved all kinds of credit for the success he made of life. He was kind, generous, friendly and thoughtful, and had a habit of helping those needing help, provided his name was not known.” Viola was not alone in her grief after Bobby’s death. In April 1957, her neighbors, Maj. Herman and Mabel Sholtz of nearby Woodbourne Farm invited her to join them on a monthlong trip to Thailand. On Viola’s return to Whiffletree, her staff went out of their way to accommodate her. John Mason took on added responsibility for running the farm, and her maid Elizabeth Carter, and cook Ruth Pinn managed the house.

property after her death, particularly her cherished carriage collection. Her goal was to keep the collection intact, and hopefully have it remain in Virginia. The terms were reasonable: house the carriages in a safe, secure place, and make them available for public enjoyment and education, and occasional use.

Following her funeral service at St. James Episcopal Church on Sept. 1, 1975, Viola Winmill’s casket was carried to the Warrenton Cemetery in a horse-drawn hearse she had donated to the carriage museum at Morven Park. The long procession was led by funeral director Charles Moser and crucifer T. Freeland Mason, followed by Rev. David Greer and the seven pallbearers. Photo courtesy of Moser Funeral Home Inc.

For months, Viola contacted groups and institutions that she thought might be interested, but to no avail. “Pooch” McClanahan notes that the Town of Warrenton was contacted, but turned down the offer. “My brother Everett tried to talk them into turning the old school on Academy Hill into a museum and keeping the carriages there,” he noted. “It would have been a real tourist attraction.”

Concerned that Viola was alone at night, John Mason urged her to have a tenant house built on Whiffletree, near the stable and coach barn. This was done, but to save money, she closed the main house, and briefly lived in the tenant house. Finding it too small, she soon moved back, and rented the tenant house.

Finally, the Westmoreland Davis Foundation, which operates Morven Park near Leesburg, endorsed Viola’s plan, and agreed to erect a new building to house the carriage collection. It was a perfect match: Morven Park was the home of the School of Equitation, and the museum would not be too far from Whiffletree.


Viola’s eyesight began to fail, but while she was able to do so, she continued to live her life to the fullest. She was invited to participate in the Fauquier County Bicentennial parade in May 1959. Several of her carriages – pulled either by her horses, or others “signed up” by Col. George Walker – were a unique and memorable part of the event. Viola continued to ride nearly every day, and April 1960, she entered a 100-mile Trail Ride at the Homestead in Hot Springs, Va. She rode sidesaddle on her hunter, “King Cormac,” and managed to place fourth in the middleweight division. Later that year, she attended the Olympics in Rome. In 1961, a group of carriage enthusiasts established the Carriage Association of America, which met


for the first time in Stony Brook, Long Island. Viola attended, and was elected to the board of directors. The following year, Viola hosted the organization’s annual meeting at Whiffletree. A tribute to Viola’s lifelong involvement with horses came during the Warrenton Hunt Ball, held Nov. 6, 1965 at Fauquier Springs Country Club. About 150 people were present at the event, but she was puzzled when she was seated at the head table between the Joint MFHs, Russ Arundel and Billy Wilbur. As the evening drew to a close, Mr. Arundel rose and recalled Viola’s history of foxhunting with the club, which began in 1912. He noted that she had served as MFH from 1925 to 1933, and as honorary secretary since 1950. After recounting many of the contributions the Winmills had made to the sport over the years, he presented Viola with gold clock inscribed with her name and title, “The First Lady of Foxhunting.”

THE WINMILL CARRIAGE COLLECTION Widowed for ten years and facing her own mortality, in 1967 Viola began planning for the dispersal of her

Work started in March 1969, with an official groundbreaking at Morven Park. Master of Ceremonies was Alexander Mackay-Smith, editor of the Chronicle of the Horse. Viola arrived in a formal c. 1890 vis-à-vis landau carriage brought from Whiffletree by John Mason. George Weymouth, of the Carriage Association of America, drove the four black horses. The ceremonial spade was placed in the ground, and Viola remarked, “Morven Park suits just perfectly. I’m going to miss the carriages, but I’ll go see them often.” She gave Bobby credit for starting the collection with his gift of the first carriage in 1928. In April 1970, the Morven Park Winmill Carriage Museum was completed. This time, Viola arrived in her pony coach and six, and with great fanfare, cut the ribbon opening the museum.

By now in her 80s, Viola’s health began to fail. She had to give up driving and foxhunting, but still enjoyed “hill-hopping” with the Warrenton Hunt, always accompanied by John Mason riding close by. During the day, the house staff looked after her, but her failing eyesight and John Mason’s retirement after suffering a stroke led to more changes. Entering a nursing home was not considered, as it was obvious she would be happier at home. Wallace Carter and Raymond Gill took on added responsibilities for maintaining the house and grounds, and her secretary, Alma Robinson, handled Whiffletree’s financial affairs. Friends still came by to visit, but Viola was slowly fading, and soon required 24-hour home care, provided by a nurse. The end came on Aug. 28, 1975. Viola lapsed into a coma and was taken to Fauquier Hospital, where she died without regaining consciousness. On receiving word of Viola’s critical condition, her sole surviving child, Virginia Winmill Livingstone Armstrong, who was living in Switzerland, flew back to be with her

mother. But she arrived too late. It fell to Virginia and other family members to handle the notifications and arrangements, which were finalized over the Labor Day weekend. One of those contacted was Charles Otey, manager of Morven Park. He made certain that the vintage horsedrawn hearse given to the museum – as well as a driver in livery and two matching champion Shire bay horses – were at St. James in time for the funeral procession. The Rev. David Greer conducted the funeral service on the afternoon of Sept. 1.“It was a cheerful service, as Viola deserved,” wrote Mrs. Armstrong. Selections of Viola’s favorite music were played, concluding with the foxhunting call, “Gone Away.” Six of her grandsons and Wallace Carter served as pallbearers, and the hearse driven by Howard F. S. Streaker Jr. Interment was in the Warrenton Cemetery, next to her husband Bobby. “As one of her friends at the burial said, ‘Viola was a great friend, always full of enthusiasm, with gracious manners at all times. We can all be thankful to have known her. Her going is truly the end of an era,’” recalled Mrs. Armstrong.


Michael and Terry Straight purchased 82-acre Whiffletree Farm in August 2011, and have updated and repainted the main house.

Remove dirt, dust and airborne contaminants such as bacteria, fungus, mold spores, dander and pollen. According to ASHRAE (American Society of

Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers) most fiberglass filters are only 7% efficient in stopping dirt, dust, pollen, etc. from passing through them

50% of all illnesses are either caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air (American College of Allergists). One out of six people who suffer from allergies do so because of the poor indoor air quality. Children are more likely than adults to be affected by polluted indoor air. They breathe faster, inhale more air per unit of body weight and are closer to the ground where concentrations are higher. The elderly, asthmatics and people with breathing problems, allergies and lung diseases are also more likely to be more sensitive to pollutants (Department of Consumer Affairs)


Most people spend 60-90% of their time indoors (American Lung Association). Indoor air is found to be up to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air (Environmental Protection Agency).
