Seagulls wait out the weather in Colonial Beach. Though the National Weather Service didn’t have any data about how much snow fell in Westmoreland County, its unofficial reports show the Fredericksburg area had 15 inches and Warsaw had 10 inches. The Christmas Eve forecast calls for a wintry mix of precipitation and freezing rain is expected Christmas Day.

Lossing Ave. like all the other main roads on the Point in Colonial Beach is hard to navigate when two cars traveling in opposite directions meet.
Route 205 in Colonial Beach has been kept pretty clear since Friday evening, however the intersection of Rt. 205 and Colonial Ave has kept a good layer of slush which will most likely turn to ice as the sun sets. Caution should be used at this and all intersections around the beach.
The main streets on the point - Irving, Lossing, Bancroft, Marshall and Monroe Bay Ave. - have been plowed to one lane but remain with at least three inches of packed snow and slush mix which will most likely turn to ice this evening. Streets running across the point from east to west are not plowed. Use extreme caution traveling on the River side of Irving Ave. as conditions are very icy on that side. Avoid Irving and Monroe Bay Ave. whenever possible till the snow stops and these roads are clear.

Last year Peggy and David Miner were recipients of the Colonial Beach Eagles Christmas food baskets. Times were difficult then. But, fortunately, their situation changed for the better. This year, the Miners wanted to show how grateful they are.
Peggy called it their “giving back,” and so they did. Last Friday the Miners’ sons made a donation of $200 — $100 of that the boys earned through chores and good grades. Peggy and David matched it to come up with a generous donation for this year’s Eagles food basket distribution. Their “giving back” effort compliments the Eagles’ slogan of “people helping people.”
Ladies Auxiliary President Teresa King (left) looks on as the boys, Dylan, 5; Dustin, 9; Daniel, 11; and Damon, 12, offer their donation. Back row: Aerie Secretary Tommy Edwards, Peggy and David Miner and Joel Garlaneau, president of the Colonial Beach Eagles.

Colonial Beach High School students gather outside the Post Office last Wednesday, loaded up with boxes to mail overseas. The students, headed by the Student Council Association and Tricia Runyan and Gail Tinsley (sponsors), began collecting Items to support our troops abroad. Through AdoptaPlatoon, the students were matched with a platoon deployed to Iraq from Ft. Lee, Va. There are 15 men and 10 women in the platoon. Collections concluded on Dec. 1, and the group was able to prepare 40 boxes of goodies, necessities, and entertainment to ship for the holidays. Shipping costs — $12 per box — have been covered by school board officials, administrators, faculty, staff and students. A special thank you goes out to the Colonial Beach Education Foundation, for contributing to the shipping of the packages.
