BOCO Grateful

Beige background with text spelling BOCO Grateful

It's November 1st, so that means it's time to celebrate the things we are grateful for. 

Maybe you’ve called Botetourt home for your entire life, as your parents and their parents did before you. Your knowledge of this community runs deep, and you know that it will always be a part of you. You’ve weathered good and bad times alongside family, friends, and neighbors you’ve known forever, and you know that you’ll always be there for each other. You’ve memorized every mountain ridge, every historic building, every bend of the James River, and every face in your local church and store. If the home is that safe feeling of being accepted and supported in a deeply rooted social network, you know Botetourt is it.

Or maybe you are a newcomer to Botetourt, whether you moved in a few weeks or a decade ago. Having lived elsewhere, you have a special appreciation for Botetourt’s uniqueness. We all know that it is rare indeed to find a community that is so largely kind, civil, supportive, family-friendly, safe, and generous.

Even visitors to Botetourt notice the difference. In Botetourt County government, it’s not unusual to hear contractors, consultants, prospective business owners, and other visitors remark that they’ve never experienced such a kind, helpful, uplifting community as Botetourt. As they work with county staff, local businesses and organizations, and individuals in the community, they notice the difference. When they have questions, Botetourt County employees are generous with their time and insights. When they get lost, Botetourt citizens go out of their way to guide them. When they pass someone on the sidewalk, Botetourt locals smile and greet them. When they chat over lunch, Botetourt residents show genuine interest in their lives.

This November, we’ll be celebrating the things that make Botetourt County such a wonderful place to live, work and play through a campaign called #BoCoGrateful. If you use social media, we’d love for you to follow Botetourt County Libraries, Botetourt County, and other Botetourt organizations, looking for this hashtag that reminds us how fortunate we are.  You can also take part in our Library BOCO Grateful Reading Challenge by clicking here!

Join in with your own expressions of gratitude for Botetourt County and what it means to you. We will also be highlighting and bragging about the people that make our county such an amazing place. For our part, we’re humbled and ever grateful for the opportunity to serve this community.  Every day we are #BoCoGrateful
