The National Sporting Library & Museum was the perfect spot for celebrating 35 years of living the Middleburg Life. A lively crowd created a festive gathering to look through catalogued copies of past issues, from its early days as a newspaper to its current form as a magazine. Attendees shared delicious food prepared by A La Carte Catering, and enjoyed tasty sweets, including an amazing cake gifted by the Salamander Resort and its talented Pastry Chef, Jason Reaves, and gluten-free cupcakes by Signature Sweets  by Amanda.

Publisher David Greenhill welcomed guests and acknowledged  that many people present had contributed to the history they were there to toast.

A special thanks goes out to the founders, Bobby and Gwen Dobson, Vicky Moon and Len Shapiro and all the others who have contributed to the publication over the years.

We hope you enjoy these photos  from the event, and that you will continue to be a part of our story going forward! ML

It was a very sweet celebration of 35 years!
