Buchanan Hall

There will be a Celebration of Dr. Calvin Rofe’s life at Buchannon Hall in Upperville from 6 to 8 pm on Sunday May 22.  Everyone is welcome.  Bring your favorite Calvin story. 

Speaking of which, we received this comment:

I knew Calvin for over 30 years, he was not only an exceptional veterinarian but more importantly an exceptional man…He knew not only the owners but all the barn/stable help by name and their dog/cats as well. He was my best friend for all those years, I will never forget him. He was the last of a vanishing breed in Virginia. – Dave Farrey, former manager of Blue Ridge Farm, Upperville.
