2018 Golden Goose Award Party at Stoke, Middleburg, VA

Goose Creek Association’s Annual Golden Goose Award Party was held at lovely Stoke on April 13, 2018.  It was a beautiful evening and we named our 2018 Award recipient, Gem Bingol from PEC as the award winner.  Gem’s dedication and participation with the efforts of Goose Creek Association throughout the years made it an easy choice.  Gem is truly a “gem” and has worked closely with GCA in the past, offering her knowledge and expertise on many occasions as well as stream monitoring and training.  Thank you to our hosts, Mr. and Mrs. George Morison and Mr. and Mrs. Dulany Morison and to all our committed members for making this a truly special evening.

Speedwell Venue for Cocktails & Golden Goose Award

The Goose Creek Association held its Annual Members’ Cocktail Party April 25, 2014  at Speedwell, the home of hosts Jason Paterniti and Nicole Watson.  In spite of a drenching rain just prior to the event, guests arrived and enjoyed the beautiful and historic farm and delicious fare provided by Back Street Catering.  Delightful music and song was provided by Amy and Jamie Potter of The Crooked Angels.  The GCA, co-chaired by Lori Keenan McGuinness and Bonnie Mattingly, bestowed its “Golden Goose Award” for her excellent work to establish the new Little River Rural Historic District in northern Fauquier County to past Co-Chair, Butter Strother.

Speedwell, located on the Snickersville Turnpike in Loudoun County, is graced by its early 19th century residence and expansive views of the Blue Ridge.  North Beaverdam Creek defines the southern boundary of the property. Built in 1810, the house with 322 acres of land was purchased in 1835 by John Levin Powell.  He named the farm, “Levinworth,” after his grandfather, Leven Powell, who founded Middleburg and served in the new American army under Lafayette during the Revolutionary War. John Powell and his wife, Maria Grady Powell, had a son born at Levinworth, Lucien Whiting Powell, who became a well-known landscape artist during the late 19th and early 20th centuries; his works included Loudoun County scenes as well as a mural at the nearby Ebenezer Church.

Congratulations to Butter Strother
