December 4th: 3rd Annual Alternative Gift Fair
This year, instead of getting caught up in the usual holiday madness, why not think about giving in a whole new way, at the Paramount's Alternative Gift Fair? The idea behind the Alternative Gift Fair is that you do your Black Friday shopping with us at The Paramount's own version of a pop-up holiday "Mall". The "vendors" are all members of central Virginia's beloved nonprofit community. Shoppers can visit from booth to booth and learn about the thirty or so organizations dedicated to energy, poverty, animal rescue, nature, the arts, education, seniors, innovation, technology, and more. Shoppers can then support the non-profits' missions by giving gifts in the names of their nearest and dearest. Come support ACHS on Thursday, December 4th from 12- 7pm. Please visit http://www.theparamount.net/2014/3rd-annual-alternative-gift-fair/ for more information.

The Hatton Ferry is located in southern Albemarle, a few miles outside of Scottsville. *The ferry cannot operate when the water level in the James River is too high or too low.
