REMINDER: Ginny Stevens Memorial Reception @ American Legion, Thursday, Jan. 4

By David Rogers. January 3, 2018. BLOWING ROCK, NC — Blowing Rock residents and friends of Ginny Stevens, who passed away on December 6th, are invited to a memorial reception on Thursday, January 4th, from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm at the American Legion Building in Blowing Rock.

The reception is being organized by Blowing Rock individuals representing the many groups in town that were impacted by Stevens’ long residence in Blowing Rock, from nearby neighbors and friends to organizations such as the Blowing Rock Historical Society that she co-founded and for which she served as president for many years. Her commitment to service, education and preservation in Blowing Rock led her to active involvement in Blowing Rock Art & History Museum, the Edgewood Cottage’s restoration and, later, the Artists in Residence series and programming at Edgewood Cottage.
