Mayor's Message 

Happy Sunday, Lovettsville!

Election Day
From last week’s election, congratulations to:
  • Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton
  • Mayor-Elect Christopher "Chris" Hornbaker
  • Council-Elect Jennifer Reed
  • Council-Elect Brandon Davis
  • Council-Elect Robert “Bobby” Merhaut
Thank you to all that ran in the election, all those that showed up to vote, all the poll workers, and everyone who remembered, “democracy is not a spectator sport,” it requires everyone’s participation.

Veterans Day 
In the Town of Lovettsville, there were two incredible ceremonies.  We started the day at Lovettsville Elementary School's Veterans Day Ceremony, which has always been one of my favorites. Huge shout-out to our new Music Teacher, Antonio Ford, for creating such a memorable ceremony, honoring our veterans. I really enjoyed the new song, "This is America!" Nothing better than small town ceremonies celebrating our heroes. Thank you to the teachers, staff, and administrators for all that they do!
The Town’s annual Veterans Day Ceremony soon followed at 11:00am.  Typically, our ceremony is held outside at our Lovettsville Veterans Memorial at Zoldos Square/"the Squirkle," however, due to the rain from Friday's Tropical Storm, the Lovettsville Volunteer Fire and Rescue Company saved the day, and allowed us to move our Ceremony into their beautiful banquet hall as we honored our Veterans and dedicated 13 new Veteran Pavers to our Lovettsville Veterans Memorial.
Every year, I have a charge for attendees, find a veteran, and ask them to tell you their story. Every single woman and man who has raised their right hand and pledged to give their life for their country, if needed, did so for a reason. Ask them why, ask them what they did, ask them anything. In Friday's ceremony, there were no WWII veterans in attendance. We are losing incredible stories, and life experiences, when we don't ask people to share their stories. We thank all our guests for braving a Tropical Storm on Friday to show our Veterans how much they mean to us and to simply say, "Thank You," for all that they have done and continue to do. To all our Veterans, thank you for sharing your stories with us. We salute you!

On behalf of the Town of Lovettsville, I want to thank our Keynote Speaker, David Walker, President and CEO of Coalition to Salute America's Heroes, US Army Chaplain, Yul Song, members of Lovettsville American Legion Post 1836, members of Loudoun County Marine Corps League Detachment 1205, and the amazing Antonio Ford with the Lovettsville Elementary School 5th Grade Chorus for making Friday's ceremony so special!

Every year the Town provides a Drinking Water Report to everyone who is connected to the Town water system.
