Carol Chandler named Montross Fall Festival Grand Marshal

The Carrot Cottage’s Carol Chandler has been named the Grand Marshal of the Oct. 5th Montross Fall Festival. “Carol was unanimously selected by the Fall Festival Steering Committee’” said Montross Town Manager Brenda Reamy.


Chandler, who has devoted her life to Montross and is one of the leaders of the Montross Revitalization effort, was on the festival committee many years and continues to provide support for the festival.  “She is one of the original members and continues to serve on the Revitalization team. Carol is very deserving of this honor and I was pleased to be the one to tell Carol she was this year’s Marshal,” Reamy said.

Chandler’s Carrot Cottage has served as an unofficial Welcome Wagon for visitors to Montross and a neighborhood gathering place for local residents for more than 15 years.  Chandler, a former teacher with two grown children, built her business on Montross’ Courthouse Square in a building that was once the home of the Harris Variety Store.

The Carrot Cottage, which features gifts, collectables, flags, a garden center, home decor and pastel portraits drawn by Chandler, has been a leader in the effort to revitalize the look of downtown Montross. “We wanted to inspire others,” Chandler said. “We decided to take the bull by the horns and improve what we’ve got,” Chandler said.

Carrot Cottage has been repainted and has added new signs and landscaping. Chandler has ordered new stock and has opened a new flag and garden area as well as a discount area.

 

Final Market Day is Sat.
The announcement of Chandler’s selection as Grand Marshal and the beginning of preparations for the Montross Fall Festival came this week as the town of Montross prepares to hold its final Market Day for 2013 on Saturday, Sept. 7. “This fifth and final market of the season promises to offer something for everyone, “ said Becky Nelson, the Montross Market Days coordinator.

“Lois Allensworth will be back with her whimsical painted bus filled with beautiful and tasty produce. There will be flowers, goat cheeses, goats milk soaps, jewelry, pottery, fossils, baked goods, jams and jellies, live music, breakfast and lunch offerings, live music by 55 And Alive,” Nelson said.

“Each market of this inaugural season has had its own personality,” Nelson said. “The final market features veteran and new vendors, including Stratford Hall which will be offering honey and mill products. And across the street, in Carrot Cottage’s green space will be a Civil War Encampment.”

“If you haven’t been to market this is your last chance of 2013. If you have been to market, you still haven’t been to this market. Come on down from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and you will be delighted with what you find! The courthouse green is the new place to be,” Nelson said.
