Four new members elected to MBPA Board

— The election results are in, and four new members have been elected to serve on the Middleburg Business and Professional Association’s Board of Directors for a two-year term beginning Jan. 1, 2020.

The election results were announced as part of MBPA’s Biz Buzz networking event, held Nov. 12 at Atlantic Union Bank. The new members include Kari Bowman of Salamander Resort & Spa, Gene LeCouteur of Emmanuel Episcopal Church, Michelle McNaughton of West Federal Retail, and Samia Salmon of Northwest Federal Credit Union. Punkin Lee of Journeymen Saddlers was also re-elected to the board.

The evening was catered by Tutti Perricone of Back Street Catering, with beer provided by Old Ox Brewery.

Other business news of note announced at the meeting included the closure of Wisdom Gallery, which will now be the home of a new community shop. David Ladd has left the Middleburg Plaza, but that space will now be occupied by Another Blue Moon.

Another closing of note: Tom Hays will be closing his jewelry shop on S. Madison Street by the end of the year as he prepares to retire. That’s good news for holiday shoppers this year, as Thomas Hays & Son Jewelers is having a going-out-of-business sale.

Also coming soon to Middleburg: board certified orthopedic surgeon Charles Carroll is moving into a space behind the Red Horse Tavern. Wild Hare Cider will also be moving into a space at 17 E. Washington St. next to Greenheart and hopes to open by Thanksgiving.

Middleburg Business and Economic Development Director also noted recent coverage of Middleburg in the History in High Heels blog, which highlighted businesses such as Goodstone Inn & Restaurant, Boxwood Winery, Market Salamander, Middleburg Common Grounds, Mt. Defiance Cider Barn, the National Sporting Library & Museum, Hunter’s Head Tavern, Red Fox Inn & Tavern, and Salamander Resort & Spa.

Upcoming events of note include:

We’ll see you at the next Biz Buzz, which will be held Dec. 10 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Emmanuel Episcopal Church’s Parish House and will include our annual award ceremony.
