Madison County Eagle

Hoover Day

More than 200 people attended the Hoover Day celebration Saturday at Hoover Ridge Park. This was the first recreation of the original Hoover Day since 1994. The celebration commemorates a day in 1929 when President Herbert Hoover visited Madison County after the completion of his rural presidential retreat, Camp Rapidan, in the Shenandoah National Park. Among the attendees at Saturday's event were 5th District U.S. Representative Robert Hurt, 24th District Senator Emmett Hanger Jr. and 30th District Delegate Ed Scott. For more photos from Saturday's event, see the Aug. 21 Madison County Eagle.

Thousands of Madison County friends and neighbors packed the grounds at Graves' for food, fellowship, fireworks and fun.

Yoder's break ground on new Rt. 29 site

Three generations of Yoders were seen shoveling dirt to “hip hip, hoorays” at the Yoder’s Country Market ground-breaking ceremony on Monday. After the family finished their ceremonial shoveling, Michael Yoder invited members of the community to join in and dig into the soil to celebrate with the family. Plans for a new location have been in the works almost eight years. The country market originally opened in 1984 and then moved to its current location on Route 230 in 1988. The building, set on a 10-acre lot, will be 16,000 square feet, double Yoder’s current 8,000 square foot market. It is expected to open in 2015.
