Please Support the Marshall Ruritan Club Rebuilding

Posted on March 21, 2016 at 10:20 AM

Dear Marshall Community,


As you may know, the banquet hall for the Marshall Ruritan Club collapsed in the snowstorm on January 23rd. We will begin demolishing the building shortly and starting our rebuilding over the next several months. While we are continuing with our Kids Weekend Lunchbox program to benefit underserved children in our community, we look forward to restarting all of our charitable programs within the Marshall area as we move forward. The Marshall Ruritan Club members miss the First Friday Dinners as much as those who enjoy a chance to visit regularly with their neighbors at our club.


Thank you to Grace Bible Church and Pastor Chris Robinson for allowing us to meet at their church. And thank you to the Marshall Volunteer Fire Department for taking in Boy Scout Troop 177 temporarily and for the offer from the Marshall United Methodist Church to host us if needed. If all goes well with our rebuilding, we hope to open our doors again Fall 2016. Unfortunately, we will not be having a Spring Raffle Dinner Dance and are planning to host the next $10,000 raffle in the Fall. We will need help from the community to get back up and running. Donations towards our rebuilding fund will be graciously accepted through our GoFundMe account at Donations may also be sent by check made out to the Marshall Ruritan Club and mailed to P.O. Box 262, Marshall, VA 20116. Thank you for the generous donations already received from many within our community.


We are always looking for new members to the Marshall Ruritan Club. Check us out at We are currently meeting every 2nd Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. at Grace Bible Church on Freestate Rd. in Marshall. Please come to see what we do for the Marshall community. Dinner is provided. We hope to see you there!

WSA Local Water System Flushing Schedule

Posted on September 5, 2015 at 12:40 AM

The Fauquier County Water and Sanitation Authority regularly flushes the water in various areas in order to clean out the system. This is done by opening a flsuhing point (usually a hydrant) and releasing the water in the system at high velocity. This improves the water quality and checks the hydrants at the same time.

Flushing typically is done between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. It tales about six hours, during which time there may be low water pressure, air bubbles in the lines and/or discoloration of the water. This may temporarily interfere with laundry or bathing. These conditions are not harmful and clear quickly after you let your tap run for a few minutes when flushing is over.

In Northern Fauquier, regularly scheduled flushing occurs in The Plains on the third Tuesday in May and November. In Marshall flushing takes place during the last week of March and September. In Paris it is done on the second Tuesday in February, May, August and November.

The Fauquier County Water and Sewer Authority can be reached at (540) 349-2092, or you can visit their website at
