Francis Fauquier Garden Club
Beautifies Spots Around Town
For well over six decades, the
Francis Fauquier Garden Club
(FFGC) has striven to further
local interest in gardening,
conservation, and horticulture,
as well as to beautify the
community through civic
landscaping projects.
You may have noticed some of
their work around the county,
and if you haven't, be sure to
stop by and admire the result of
their green thumbs! Residents
can view FFGC efforts in the
raised garden beds at Fauquier
Hospital, the landscaping outside
the Old Jail Museum in Old Town
Warrenton, and in stone planter
boxes at the Warrenton Post
Office. To learn more, visit

Young Marines Has
Positive Impact on Youth
Launched in 1959 with one unit and a few
members, the Young Marines (a national youth education and service program
for boys and girls ages eight through the completion of high school) has grown
to 275 units with 9,200 youth and 2,760 adult volunteers in 40 states, the District
of Columbia, and Okinawa with affiliates in other countries. The organization
promotes mental, moral, and physical development. The program teaches the
values of leadership, teamwork, and self-discipline, in hopes that its members can
live and promote a healthy, drug-free lifestyle.
Colonel Sheryl Murray (USMC, Retired) was recently welcomed as a new board
member for the Young Marines. Colonel Murray brings executive level leadership
and management experience gained during her more than 40 years of military
service.
Commissioned in 1973, Colonel Murray's career included manpower and personnel
assignments throughout the Marine Corps in both command and staff positions.
Her personal military awards include the Defense Superior Service Medal, the
Legion of Merit fourth award, the Meritorious Service Medal with two gold stars, the
Marine Corps Commendation Medal, and the Marine Corps Achievement Medal.
Colonel Murray notes her delight in being asked to serve
on the board. "Over the years I have witnessed the value
of the Young Marines program and its positive impact on
the youth who take up the challenge," she says. "I look
forward to being part of this great organization."
