The Town of Leesburg recently lost a valued team member, mentor, and friend to COVID-19. Lewis Owens began his career with the Town of Leesburg in 1998 as a Utility Plant Senior Operator at the Water Supply Division. Lewis’s extensive knowledge and experience in the water and wastewater profession, along with his positive attitude and affable nature made him a valuable member of the water plant team. Through two major plant upgrades and operational staff changes over his career, Lewis provided continuity and leadership, serving as a shift leader and mentoring junior operators. Lewis retired from the Town in 2019 and continued to reside in nearby Hamilton, VA. Known for his dedication and reliability, Lewis maintained his water operator license certifications and continued to work part-time at the plant, on an as-needed basis, to cover vacancies. Lewis passed away on May 24, 2020, and will be deeply missed by the Utilities Department staff. Funeral arrangements are being handled by Lyle Funeral Services in Purcellville.

Town of Leesburg Utilities Department

In the summer of 2008, employees at the Leesburg Utility Maintenance Division were notified that an early wooden water pipe was uncovered on a resident's property on the west side of town. The 8-foot-long log had a hallowed out center and tapered end, which provided evidence of an early water system. It is speculated that the town built the first portion of its water system sometime between its incorporation in 1813 and its first record of a water system in 1832.

I know we all have our opinions and differences on the changes in society we are facing due to the Corona Virus. We need to remember that while this may be an inconvenience, the entire nation and world is going through this with us. I believe that social distancing is capable of bringing us together and closer as a community if we all know and believe that we are doing our part to keep each other and our community safe. Because once we reach the end of this, we will all come together knowing that our neighbors did their part and that we are all here and healthy because we all worked together and did our part. Please share this video with your friends and family in Leesburg to remind them that we are strong and that we will get through this!! https://youtu.be/UimDZgml4f0 Video by: Colin Bertoglio

Riverside High School’s Moon River Productions is thrilled to present Disney’s Beauty and the Beast on April 30th, May 2nd, 3rd, 7th, and 8th. Leave your cares behind and step into the enchanted world of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast! This award-winning film and stage musical come to life in this beloved take on the classic fairytale. This classic story centers on Belle, a smart, beautiful young woman who is seen as an outcast in her provincial town, and the Beast, who begins as a handsome young prince but is transformed into a hideous beast by an enchantress’s spell. When Maurice, Belle’s father, the town’s peculiar inventor, finds himself lost in the woods, he seeks shelter in an old castle but is soon held captive by the Beast. Belle, who is quite courageous and adventurous, trades places with her father when she finds him trapped. Living in the castle, Belle finds enchanted objects that serve the Beast and communicate with her. In order for the Beast to break the spell and become human again, he will have to learn how to earn Belle’s love before time runs out. If the Beast does not accomplish this task, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity. Based on the original Broadway production that ran for over 10 years, Beauty and the Beast feature songs written by Alan Menken and lyrics by Tim Rice. In addition to the fantastic score, this “tale as old as time” is filled with spectacular costumes and an incredibly breathtaking set that the whole family will love! This show will take place on April 30th, May 2nd, 3rd, 7th, and 8th in the Riverside High School auditorium. Tickets range for $10-$15 and it is a show you definitely don't want to miss!!
