Lunenburg County Chamber of Commerce contest opens to name new event

Published 5:45 pm Tuesday, September 27, 2016

The Lunenburg County Chamber of Commerce stated in a recent release that it “exists to enhance life in our county, not only by supporting business development but also by bringing family entertainment to our community.”

The chamber has set a date, time and place — April 2, 2017, at 3 p.m., at Central High School — for an event that will showcase the performing arts talents of Lunenburg youth. Students in grades 1–12 of Lunenburg County Public Schools, and homeschooled students, are eligible to compete and showcase their skills in dance, song, recitation, acting or instrumental music.

“The show is guaranteed to be wonderful; but there’s an important question waiting to be answered: What shall we name this new event?” stated the release.

The chamber hopes the event can become an annual tradition, so its title should be worth repeating. The title can be creative, exciting and a little out-of-the-ordinary, to reflect the fun and pride of the show.

“That’s right; mull it over and come up with something really special,” the chamber encourages. “The Lunenburg County Chamber of Commerce is counting on some super name ideas to be submitted by the people we are here to serve.”

The person who submits the winning title will receive free tickets to this event.

Please send your idea(s) for the talent event title by e-mail to by Oct. 15.  Entries can also be mailed to: Pat Israel, P.O. Box 974, Kenbridge, VA 23944.
