WELCOME TO SMALL TOWN USA, ROCKY MOUNT VA
Living in a small southern town is always an adventure. There is a sense of community and camaraderie I have not experienced living anywhere else. The one thing these small towns love is their All American Game of Football! College games are hugely celebrated, and high school football is a weekly event here in the Fall.
Last Friday night, for some bizarre reason we had all 6 rooms checked in early and headed out for their own fun, so Tony and I went to the game! One member of this innkeeping family is there in the marching band and the other was invited to play in the Pep band with other 8th grade middle school hopefuls.
The Eagles won triumphantly 37 to 26, it was good clean fun! Each time The Eagles scored out roared the screech of an Eagle from the loudspeaker.
Next home game in Rocky Mount is 10/1/10 against Martinsville.
10/22/10 against Halifax Co and then 10/29/10 against George Washington.
You are cordially invited to visit small town USA...leave your car parked at The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast and walk down the hill a couple blocks to high school. Head over to Frank's for a pizza or sub and then enter the gates of Franklin County High for some small town fun! (Oh and ps make sure you wear RED)
