In front of a packed to the rafters Page County Court House, Rebecca Carter faced the television cameras like she was born to be there. Carter, accepting an award for her most recent piece of work titled "The Page County I Know," was one of twelve guest speakers at the ceremony. Carter received a framed copy of her work as well as a certificate noting the honor.
"I would like to thank my father for being such an inspiration to me as well as being my biggest fan", said Carter after the reception.
The celebration marked the 175th anniversary of the founding of Page County as well as being part of the build-up to next years 400th anniversary of the Jamestown, Va. colony. Other notable speakers included Lieutenant Govenor Bill Bolling, Senator Mark Obenshain and House Delegate Todd Gilbert.
The event was covered by Channel 3 out of neighboring Harrisonburg, Virginia as well as four local newspapers. The day closed out with a 2 hour reception at The Mimslyn Inn in Olde Town Luray.
The highlight of the reception was the sealing of the time capsule which included a copy of Ms. Carters story among numerous other items. When asked about the highlight of the event, Rebecca pondered about her conversation with the Lt.Gov before finally answering, " going with my Dad to get an ice cream".
