Arlington Community hosts Family Fun Night


ROCK CAVE — The Arlington Community Building hosted a Family Fun Night with live music from the Sapps Hollow Band from Shinnston, West Virginia on Friday, July 22.

The Sapps Hollow band was originally supposed to play before the COVID-19 outbreak but was abruptly put on hold due to the pandemic’s shutdown. This was the first chance the band has had to play for the Arlington Community Center since 2020. The band usually charges roughly $300 for bookings, but they decided to play for tips only for such a wonderful community. “We are just super blessed that the band offered out of the kindness of their hearts to perform for the community on such short notice,” expressed Secretary Cathy Evans.

The Arlington Community Building hosts live music and food anytime a band or individual musician books to play. The Ramblers will play this Friday, July 29, 2022 at 6 p.m. There will also be hot dogs, drinks, and desserts available for purchase. All proceeds went toward maintaining, up-keeping the community building and paying the bands/musicians. The building is in need of siding and the roof needs repaired.

Helen Hall, of Buckhannon, won the 50/50 raffle and donated her winnings back to the band for being so kind and playing for just tips.

The Arlington Community Center also is available to rent for weddings or reunions. It is handicap accessible with air conditioning and a full functioning kitchen, as well as restrooms. Plenty of seating is available, as well as a stage. The women’s prayer group meets every Wednesday morning from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.

There is a community Facebook page for Arlington Community Center, located at 15801 Route 20 South, Rock Cave, West Virginia, 26234. If anyone would like to rent or have any questions, please contact the building’s Treasurer Joyce Haymond at (304) 924-6339. Please be considerate as this is her personal home telephone number.
