Warren County is pleased to announce the receipt of a 2014 Achievement Award from the National Association County Officials (NACo) for the “North Warren Volunteer Fire Company” project in the category of Community/Economic Development.
North Warren Volunteer Fire Company (Company 10) is one of nine companies that make up the Warren County Department of Fire and Rescue Services. It was chartered by the Warren County Board of Supervisors on August 5, 1997 to provide faster fire and rescue response times for residents and industry located in the Cedarville/Rockland area. The Company operated for years in a temporary location that provided less than ideal conditions for personnel and hampered their ability to provide efficient and reliable service.

Luray, VA – Each year Shenandoah National Park staff invite community neighbors to enjoy a fee-free day in the park in celebration of Shenandoah Neighbors’ Day. On June 21, 2014, Shenandoah will waive entrance fees for those residents living in counties bordering the park, including: Albemarle, Augusta, Greene, Madison, Nelson, Page, Rappahannock, Rockingham, and Warren. Shenandoah Neighbors’ Day is an annual event held on the third Saturday of each June. This year, the celebration has been expanded to include a “Community Connections Tent” to showcase the rich heritage and activities park neighbors and visitors will find in our surrounding communities. The Community Connections Tent will also showcase the activities our park partners undertake to support Shenandoah National Park.
