Head to Hearts Delight Baptist Church for Volleyball!
Thanks to a $5,000 grant from the Patricia and Nicolaas Kortlandt Memorial Fund through the
Northern Piedmont Community Foundation, Hearts Delight Baptist Church (11229 Brent Town
Road, Catlett) has installed a regulation size outdoor volleyball court adjacent to the church
grounds--and all are invited to use it!
Reverend Tyrone Green explains that they sought an opportunity to provide a fun and healthy
activity for young people in the county, and enlisting the guidance of Greg Carter, the volleyball
coach at Liberty High School, they used the grant funds to install the court. Although he points
out that people may want to
wait for warmer weather to play
volleyball, the court is open for
public use. They eventually hope
to organize tournaments as well,
but for now, all are welcome to use
the court for casual or organized
volleyball fun! The church can
even provide volleyballs if you
need them--just call Rev. Green
(202) 351-1001.
Recycling Reminders!
The Fauquier County Environmental Services Department is grateful for the efforts
of many residents who take the time to recycle various items, and they share the
following best practices for proper recycling:

both residents and staff who sort items at the landfi ll.
· Pizza boxes--new or used--or not recyclable. Please put in the trash.
· Plastic bags should be recycled separately from other recyclable items, and
they are not allowed in mixed paper except for bags of shredded paper.
· Corrugated cardboard should be recycled with cardboard vs. mixed paper.
· Sharps (needles) should be enclosed in a plastic
container, labeled, and placed in the sharps
collection bin.
