         “There’s a silver lining.”
         “There’s a light at the end of the tunnel.”
         “Rainbows follow a bad storm.”
         While our lexicon has always been replete with such phrases of optimism and hope amidst trying circumstances, lately it seems our
         conversations have instead been filled with a slew of gloomy adjectives. I, quite frankly, hope I never have to hear those descriptors again
         (think “unprecedented”, et al.), and you won’t see those words reflected here.

         Why? It’s not because we are being the proverbial ostrich with our head in the sand (which by the way is a myth), simply ignoring the world
         around us. It’s because your community foundation is, and always has been, a refuge — an oasis if you will — of positive actions and
         results. We are blessed to be able to spend our time, talent and resources on finding ways to make all of the communities we serve more
         vibrant and successful, to truly change lives for the better, to offer opportunities where none existed before, and to make long-held dreams
         and aspirations come true.

         Perhaps, most importantly, we are honored and privileged to perpetuate over the generations the amazing and wonderful generosity of our
         many donors. Yes, you are the fountainhead for everything the community foundation accomplishes, as reflected in this annual report. You
         are our Good News, and we are deeply grateful for that!

         All the very best,

         Alan E. Ronk

   For the ninth year in a row, the Town of Buchanan welcomed multi-award winning Old Dominion’s lead singer Matthew Ramsey and his fellow
   singer/songwriter friends for an evening filled with music, laughter, and perhaps most importantly, a spirit of giving.
   “Nashville Night in Buchanan” is an annual benefit concert to raise money for community needs in the Town. With its growing success year
   after year, it became apparent to Matthew and his wife Sara, both natives of Botetourt County, that they wanted to find ways to have an even
   greater impact. In 2019, they established the Ramsey Foundation. Soon thereafter they set up “My Hometown Fund” within the community
   foundation to support important local community needs in Botetourt.
   This year, the first grant from My Hometown Fund was awarded to James River High School, the host site for Nashville Night and Matthew’s
   high school. The $50,000 grant will help purchase band equipment, improve the school’s recording studio, and other important arts projects.
