Mike Flagg managed it all – solid waste and recycling, road construction, project management, compliance with environmental regulations, crisis response, flood mitigation and Hanover’s airport, to name just a few. That might sound daunting, but for Hanover County’s retiring Public Works Director, responsibility and initiative are fundamental parts of his character.
One of the newest members of Team Hanover comes to us all the way from Quebec, Canada! Fannie Giguere is a recreation coordinator with Hanover County Parks and Recreation. Her husband's career landed the family of five in Ashland, making us the luckiest team in the universe. We are excited to introduce to you another member of Team Hanover working to make our community fun, educational and safe for our little ones.
Montpelier Recreation Center and Library has gone vertical! There are walls, floors, rooms and we are excited to watch Western Hanover’s community hub come to life.
The 20,000-square-foot building will house a recreation center with a full-size gymnasium and two classrooms in addition to a new library with a conference space and study rooms. It's expected to be complete later next year.
Keep up with the project's progress here.
The Hanover Tomato Festival is right around the corner! We went behind the scenes with Hanover Vegetable Farm to see how their tomatoes get from the farm to the festival. The farm is supplying 500 boxes for the festival, which is nearly 6 acres of tomatoes! Watch to see how this family farm is preparing for the County’s biggest event of the year.
June is National Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month and Hanover is blessed with the best! Agriberry Farm grows blackberries, raspberries and more and is the only fruit-oriented CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program in the Richmond area. This allows customers to purchase products during preseason, supporting local farmers during winter months.
Pick your own berries every other Saturday through August from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the farm, 6289 River Road.
