Ornament Contest Winner
IMG_0177In the fall, the Town of Tazewell hosted an ornament contest for the Governor’s Mansion Christmas Tree. The theme was, “Celebrating Virginia’s Localities”. Residents were asked to design an ornament that uniquely represents this community. The Winner was Carolyn and Larry Kegley with their original creation of “Early Log Home”. Congratulations Carolyn and Larry!

Once A Bulldog Scholarship
It’s hard to believe, but in five months our Tazewell High School Seniors will be graduating and heading out in the world for new challenges and many to further their education. One great way of assisting our graduates in accomplishing their goals is by donating to the “Once a Bulldog Always a Bulldog” Scholarship Fund. This is an ongoing Scholarship Fund established in 2012 to honor Dr. Charles Grindstaff an avid proponent of the importance of education. Every year this scholarship is awarded to two deserving Tazewell High School Seniors based on their higher standards, giving back to the community and their desire to further their education. Tax deductible donations can be made to “Once a Bulldog Always a Bulldog” Scholarship Fund, Town of Tazewell, 201 N Central Avenue, Tazewell, Virginia 24651.
