All our groups were wonderful this evening!


These three young ladies are true dancers and their professional actions tonight will be remembered for a long time! While dancing at the Gordonsville Christmas Tree Lighting their music died…completely! But they continued through their entire dance without music, stayed together, never missed the beat in their heads and smiled! The crowd LOVED it! Way to go ladies!

Gordonsville is famous for its fried chicken, which was served to passengers of trains stopping in town during the late 19th and early 20th centuries by local women carrying platters of the delicacy on their heads. Nationally-known at that time, Gordonsville's fried chicken earned the town the nickname of "chicken-leg center of the universe".
