I love a parade! The Chincoteague Christmas Parade is one of my favorite events of the year. In fact, last year, I was honored to serve as a judge for this Grand Event.
I remember, when I showed up to learn the rules governing the Chincoteague Parade Judging, it was Evelyn Shotwell of the Chincoteague Chamber of Commerce who schooled me and my fellow judges. Evelyn is a great teacher and nobody has a better handle on Chincoteague Christmas Parade rules and the weekend happenings on Chincoteague. So, Evelyn, let the parade of events begin!
I hope you were able to be “out & about” today. What a gorgeous December day!! Hard to believe we may see snow by the weekend. Be sure to join us Saturday night for the Annual Old-Fashioned Christmas Parade. There should be lots of holiday cheer to go around. ENJOY!!

Message from Commissioner of Revenue Leslie M. Savage:
The Accomack County Board of Supervisors approved the change of the filing date for the
report of business tangible personal property to the Commissioner of the Revenue Office.
The new deadline is February 15, 2010. Forms will be mailed and will be available after
December 15, 2009. This is a result of implementing semi-annual billing for personal property taxes.
