On Thursday, September 20, 2018 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., contractors for Albemarle County will be repairing the multiple streetlights reported out by the public. Work crews and a bucket truck will be positioned on Crozet Avenue between Tabor Street and The Square.

 

During that time, please SLOW DOWN and use caution as you travel and be alert for signs and flag men.

 

The speed limit on Crozet Avenue is 25 MPH  between St. George Avenue on the north and the Rock Gate Cemetery on the south.  Please check your speedometer, not just Thursday, September 20th, but every day.  Some drivers are going way faster than 25 MPH through downtown Crozet.  The time you save isn’t worth the injury or death you might cause.

Crozet Elementary Fifth Graders Water Conservation PSA

Crozet Elementary Fifth Graders are making an IMPACT ! 

This spring the Crozet Elementary fifth graders are connecting with our community through service and our environment.  Their grade-wide IMPACT project (I’m Making a Planned Act of Compassion Today) was studying and protecting the creeks that feed into the Beaver Creek Reservoir.  They received a grant from the Roots and Shoots organization founded by Dr. Jane Goodall to fund our research and  solutions.

At the June 20, 2018 Crozet Community Advisory Committee (CCAC) meeting the primary agenda item was a presentation by the Rivanna Water & Sewer Authority (RWSA) on the Crozet Drinking Water Infrastructure Plan.  (Search #CCAC0618 on Twitter to follow the meeting highlights).   Allie Pesch, chair of the CCAC, graciously agreed,  at the last minute, to add the fifth graders’ presentation to the end of the meeting following the RWSA.   Several former fifth graders and their teachers came and stayed for the whole meeting to show the Public Service Announcement (PSA) they created.   To view the video, click on this link:

or

They spent this spring studying water issues and have created two other videos about what they learned.  You can view these on YouTube.

 

Very impressive work by these young people and a great deal of thanks and appreciate to their teachers, Betsy Agee, Gwedette Crummie,  Brandy Garbaccio, and Justin Stauffer who have made it possible.   The Crozet community is very lucky to have such dedicated and gifted teachers and smart, capable young people!

Making a Contribution

These events involve a lot of donated time from a lot of individuals and donated materials and services from local companies, but it still cannot happen without financial contributions, too.

Crozet Independence Day Celebration 2018


The Eighth Annual Crozet Independence Day Parade, Celebration, and Fireworks,  Saturday, June 30, 2018

It all starts with the Crozet Volunteer Fire Department (CVFD) parade at 5:00 PM at Crozet Elementary School and goes down Crozet Avenue through downtown Crozet to Claudius Crozet Park.  The Parade Grand Marshal is Mike Marshall.

If you would like to be a part of the 2018 Crozet Fireman’s parade, please submit your entry to be in the parade  to ensure you are included in the lineup. Lineup will be based on a first come basis. Horses/livestock will be placed near or at the end of the parade. Lineup will begin at 4:00 P.M. at Crozet Elementary School and the parade ends at Claudius Crozet Park.   Awards will be presented around 7:30 P.M.

The celebration begins at Claudius Crozet Park after the parade, where there will be live music by local band Crozet Jam Band.   There will also be  bounce houses and laser tag for children, for just $5/child.  Bring a lawn chair if you want to be comfortable as you listen to the local band, Crozet Jam Band.    Traditional American Fourth of July fare will be available, including barbecue from Moe’s BBQ, hot dogs,  popcorn, funnel cake, savory and sweet waffles, pies, and sno-cones, as well as vegetarian and vegan choices, tacos, and other favorites!  Starr Hill, and  Pro Re Nada Beer and Bold Rock Cider will also be available for a separate cost.  Event culminates at 9:30 PM with a stupendous fireworks show. (We have it at 9:30 PM so it’s late enough to be dark, but not too late to for the youngsters to view the show.)

There are no pets allowed in the event and we’ll provide designated smoking areas and ask that you only smoke in those areas.  If you live nearby Crozet Park, we encourage you to walk!

How much would you pay for such good times?  All that’s asked is a donation of $4 per person (children 12 and under free) as you enter to park to help pay for the fireworks and event expenses.  The non-profit civic groups in Crozet are the ones that benefit from any money raised above the cost of the event, so please be generous. In past years, we’ve donated thousands of dollars to CVFD, Crozet Park, and other civic groups.

Check out our Facebook page at: http://facebook.com/Crozet.Independence.Day.Celebration

The event is sponsored by the Crozet Volunteer Fire Department, Crozet Community Association, Claudius Crozet Park, Crozet Lions Club,  Life Journey Church, Crozet Board of Trade, and several other area churches, and citizen volunteers.
