Save the Golden Rule Garden Party http://www.belington.net/index.php/community-rss/178-save-the-golden-rule-garden-party http://www.belington.net/index.php/community-rss/178-save-the-golden-rule-garden-party

Golden RuleThe Belington Revitalization Committee is planning a kickoff party for their fundraising efforts to Save the Golden Rule building.  The Garden Party will be held from 5 to 7:30 pm on Thursday, June 26th in the yard of the Golden Rule building.  Many activities have been planned for the event including free hot dogs, popcorn, corn hole, lawn games, music and more.  The event is being held to bring the community together to celebrate summer and to increase the awareness of the BRC’s efforts to raise the funds needed to purchase the building. 

A ceremony will be held at 6 pm including a prayer circle around the Golden Rule building to ask for blessings on the building and the community’s effort to acquire it.   Many arms will be needed to be able to circle such a large building and all are encouraged to come and help surround the building for the blessing ceremony.
While the BRC currently has a purchase agreement with the current owner, there is much to be done in order to raise the money needed to fulfill the purchase agreement.  Tax deductible donations will be accepted during the Garden Party. 

The vision for the Golden Rule building resonates with many of the citizens of Belington and those who are passionate about preserving our heritage.  Some work has already been done in an effort to save the building including the 2014 historic preservation designation by Preservation Alliance of West Virginia.  Assessments of the 1902 building have been conducted and suggestions made for the preservation of the building.  Further steps are also being taken to have the building listed on the National Historic Register once acquired.  However, the money needs to be raised first in order to purchase the building and it will take everyone’s help to get that done.

All are encouraged to come and have a good time while they hear about the history of this wonderful old building and the plans for making it a viable asset to Belington again.

Anyone interested in helping Save the Golden Rule Building can follow us on facebook @ Save the Golden Rule or contact Terri Kittle at 304-823-1792.

5th Annual Belington City Wide Yard Sale http://www.belington.net/index.php/community-rss/176-5th-annual-belington-city-wide-yard-sale http://www.belington.net/index.php/community-rss/176-5th-annual-belington-city-wide-yard-sale

Click here for Yard Sale Registration Form

2014 Yard SaleThe Belington Revitalization Committee and ON TRAC Promotion Team are currently organizing the 5th Annual Belington Community-Wide Yard-Sale for June 7, 2014.

As always, you can have a yard-sale at your home or rent a space downtown. If you would like to set-up your yard-sale at your home, you can have your location listed in the event flyer free of charge by filling out a form at one of the following locations: Freedom Bank, Belington City Hall, Laurel Mountain Inn, or by going online at www.belington.net. 

Spaces are also available to rent downtown in the Freedom Bank parking lot and must be paid for in advance. The cost to rent one space is $10.00 or you can rent three spaces for $25.00. If you wish to rent a space, please contact Terri Kittle at 304-823-1792 for further information.

All home yard sale registrations must be submitted no later than June 4, 2014 to be listed on the flyer. Your address and directions to your yard-sale will be published in a flyer that will be available at the locations listed above on the day of the event and at www.belington.net.

A yard-sale is the ultimate example of “one man’s trash” becoming “another man’s treasure” and a great example of reusing and recycling.

For the shoppers, yard-sales offer the chance to find a bargain or some special item that they did not even know they were looking for. Shoppers have a chance to enjoy the sunshine and smell the flowers. The weather is nice and people are eager to get out of their houses and enjoy the company of others. Yard-sales provide a social opportunity as well as an economic one.

For the sellers, yard-sales allow them to let go of underused or unused items that they may otherwise hold onto. Sellers clear their homes and storage spaces of clutter and make some extra spending money in the process.
Either way you look at it, yard-sales are an important part of our social network.  

Please be sure to come and help support the local economy by participating as either a buyer or a seller.

Food & Fun as Belington Celebrates on June 20th http://www.belington.net/index.php/community-rss/174-food-fun-as-belington-celebrates-on-june-20th http://www.belington.net/index.php/community-rss/174-food-fun-as-belington-celebrates-on-june-20th

State of West VirginiaAn evening of food, fun and music is planned for June 20th as part of the grand opening of the Belington Walking Trail and a community celebration of West Virginia’s 150th Birthday.

A ribbon cutting ceremony has been set for 6 pm on Thursday, June 20th at the Belington City Park to commemorate the grand opening of the newly constructed Belington Walking Trail.

Immediately following the ribbon cutting will be a “fun run” in which the community is invited to come and walk or run the trail to the bridge and back to the park.

Following the “fun run”, the community is invited to the WV 150th Birthday party in the park and enjoy free hot dogs, WV birthday cake, play games and listen to music.

The walking trail extends ½ mile from the Belington Bridge along the Tygart Valley River to the Belington City Park. The project has been a joint project between the City of Belington and Belington Revitalization Committee/ON TRAC over the past 5 years. The project was made possible through WVDOT grant funding and the generous contributions of various businesses and individuals in Belington. The Walking Trail Committee would like to thank all of those who helped to make this great addition to Belington possible.
