Autumnal races, tailgates and a blessing of the animals.
By Vicky Moon
One of the countless pleasurable ingredients of Middleburg life is the crisp, clear autumn air. The weekends are filled with outings: a jaunt to the village to run errands, attending one of the many charity events, or watching the steeplechase races while enjoying a tremendous tailgate picnic.
So, what is a typical country weekend?
It might begin with an evening of song and imagery at the Circle of Life Gala hosted by Jay Fetner and Sandi Young at Coachman Farms. Michael Bacon (half of the musically gifted Bacon Brothers with Kevin Bacon) served as celebrity emcee for a star-struck night highlighted by a performance by Grammy winner Lebo M of the Lion King … all to benefit the Ubuntu Education Fund.
