Glorious 4th of July

Welcome to July!

PHW held its annual meeting last weekend and we are happy to report the event went off without issue. We had a number of views on the Facebook livestream, but if you want to get right to the meat of the abbreviated meeting, a copy is also available for review on YouTube.

As you may have heard, the City of Winchester is seeking your input on the potential renaming of Jubal Early Drive. Get your thoughts in by July 13! More background information and the survey can be found at

Although it sounds hard to believe, we are indeed following the promise made at the Annual Meeting and we are in the early stages of transforming the interior of the Hexagon House to be shop-friendly. You can follow along on our Bough and Dough Shop progress this summer and fall at our dedicated Instagram account. The early start is in part due to making sure the new table layouts will work with the need for one-way traffic inside the building this year. (It also helps us judge how many artists we can accommodate.) If you have not completed your application for this year, apply soon!

As you celebrate the holiday this weekend, you may want to brush up on some safety tips. The Red Cross has 20 tips for you this year with specific tips for the COVID-19 pandemic. There is also an article from on the rise of fireworks this year and how to stay safe while enjoying them. Have a happy Fourth of July from everyone at PHW!
