The 2012 Virginia General Assembly session is upon us and it's clear that silly season has begun. You may have already heard that Delegate Terry Kilgore introduced legislation that would provide a tax credit of up to $8,000 for Virginians who want their cremated remains blasted into space on a rocket.

As we enter the holiday season, it’s an important time to remember our community, the importance of unity, and to celebrate the diversity that we have in the Friendly City of Harrisonburg.
What a better way to do that than an inter-cultural potluck? Join us to share the treats and stories from your own culture and indulge in those of others. We’ll be hearing from folks of other cultures, making new friends, and sharing food. This event is sponsored by the New Bridges Immigrant Resource Center, Promotores de la Salud, Refugee Resettlement, and Virginia Organizing.
