From the CEO

My wife and I live a couple of blocks from Town Point Park in Norfolk, so we are regulars at the numerous events that Festevents hosts throughout the year. One of our favorite events is the Virginia Children’s Festival.

So, I’m excited to let you know that the day that many of us Downton Abbey fans have been looking forward to is finally just around the corner!

Where were you while Neil Armstrong exited Apollo 11 and placed that “one small step” onto the moon? I was 7 years old, but vividly remember being in our vacation cottage in Cape Cod. Though I’m not sure if I fully appreciated the magnitude of the event, I remember my parents paying rapt attention to the black and white pictures on their television. I did know that this astronaut walking on the moon was a big deal, so big that the memory of it remains burned in my mind.

Ah, June. The beginning of summer. School is out. Vacations start. It’s wonderful that we live in an area that people from around the world want to come and visit.

I can’t believe it is May already! Though many of us begin thinking about summer vacations this time of year, things here at WHRO rarely slow down—even in the summer.
