Everyone's invited to The Essex Inn Saturday, November 21st from 2 to 5 for Beer and Bratwursts, to hear more and to tour The DAW Theater in a kick-off party! Guest speakers at the Nov 19th TRC meeting were Rick and Jeremy Gassen, Managers of The Essex Inn. Introduced by Madeline Lawson, the Gassens shared their passion for renovating Tappahannock's DAW Theater. Under the auspices of the new no...n-profit, "Cook Foundation for the Arts", and the leadership of its Board and the Gassens, the renovated DAW will be a regional center for touring shows, a community meeting place, and an events venue for rent. Rick and Jeremy bring their extensive theater backgrounds to this exciting project. They and Board President, Kia Ware, ask for support including time, labor, money, and just enthusiasm as they reawaken the theater to the benefit of the community.
