PURCELLVILLE, Va. July 28, 2022 - The Purcellville Parks and Recreation Advisory Board has issued a call to area non-profit organizations to participate in the second annual Purcellville Non-Profit Expo. Register online by August 12, 2022. The Purcellville Non-Profit Expo will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, August 20 in the Bush Tabernacle at 250 South Nursery Ave, Purcellville, VA.
The Purcellville Non-Profit Expo is free and open to the public, giving non-profits that serve the Purcellville area an opportunity to share information about what they offer and how people can get involved. There are several categories of non-profit organizations that operate in Purcellville and western Loudoun. “We hope to have a wide variety of non-profits that represent students, scouts, the arts, sports, history, veterans, environment, agriculture, community, civic, and charitable groups so people in our area have a chance to learn about the amazing opportunities there are to connect with these groups,” said Phil Rohrer, chair of the Purcellville Parks and Recreation Advisory Board. “Whether you are looking to participate, volunteer, learn, or donate, there are a lot of ways to get involved, and this expo will be an easy and fast way to get information about a lot of non-profits.”
The first Purcellville Non-Profit Expo held in 2021 featured 15 non-profits and was completely virtual. Get more information about the Purcellville Non-Profit Expo on the Town website at: https://purcellvilleva.gov/984/Purcellville-Non-Profit-Expo.
The Town of Purcellville, Virginia
“Purcellville-your small Town, where history and progress intersect and people prosper,” is an award-winning town of approximately 10,000 residents located in Loudoun County, approximately 50 miles west of Washington, DC. Having received the 2021 Virginia Municipal League Innovation Award for Environmental Sustainability and in years past, the prestigious Siemens Sustainability Award for Small Communities, Purcellville continues to be honored for innovation and green initiatives. The Town most recently received the Tree City USA Award for the 14th consecutive year. The Town was reaffirmed as a AAA rated community by S&P Global Ratings, the highest credit rating possible, and was ranked “Safest City” in Virginia in 2020. Once a stop along the W&OD rail line, which has been converted to a multi-use trail from Alexandria, VA to Purcellville, the Town has maintained its historic old-town feel through the restoration and maintenance of its many downtown structures, reflecting the Victorian architecture popular during the early 1900s. Today, Purcellville is the economic hub of western Loudoun County and a popular weekend destination for antiquing, equestrian activities, farmer’s markets, wineries, breweries, distilleries and restaurants.
