Nature Lovers Urged to Come Out to Share a Vision - Come Dream With Us - written by Dan Gristko

The Van Clief Nature Area is open for folks to walk the trails and go fishing and I would like to encourage you to check it out.

Also, I would like to remind you of a needed project for the years ahead. The map you see below shows the plans the committee envisions for future phases of the nature area.

As I pondered this beautiful picture of the past, I smiled about the progress that has been made in recent years. I now want to take a moment to invite you to come and join with us to dream about the future. And as we know, once God inspires us to dream, we can begin by taking our first step toward making it happen. With that in mind… Come Dream with Us.


Come Dream with Us – that children growing up in and around Scottsville will continue to find a community that encourages and protects them and challenges them to be the best that they can be.

Come Dream with Us – that retired citizens will find a place to live out their later years, with dignity, peace, love and fulfillment and whatever assistance they may need.

Come Dream with Us – that the natural resources that God has given us – our parks – temperate climate - recreational fields - the Van Clief Nature Area -– areas yet to be discovered – and the amazing James River will be protected and preserved for generations to come.

Come Dream with Us – that businesses in our town and the Greater Scottsville Area will thrive and flourish and that entrepreneurs will be attracted to our area and bring their abilities and resources to create jobs and opportunities.

Come Dream with Us – that the people who live here today and those who choose to live here in years to come will keep the fabric of what makes Scottsville great while preparing it for the challenges of the future.

Come Dream with Us – that when we encounter difficulty, worry, heart ache and the various challenges that will come our way – that we will face them together with strength – humility – grace – mercy and determination.

Come Dream with Us – that people from around the globe and all walks of life will continue to discover what this amazing small town can be.
