To help celebrate the local community, the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) will be hosting a screening of the Gloucester/Yorktown episode of the new PBS culinary and travel series, “Virginia Found.” Local personality Dave Parker, who hosts the program, will be onsite during the screening and will be interacting with the audience.
The screening, which is scheduled to be held on the VIMS campus next Thursday, Sept. 16, is being cohosted by the Gloucester Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department and the Gloucester County Chamber of Commerce. The screening will take place from 7-8 p.m. at Watermen’s Hall McHugh Auditorium, 1375 Greate Rd., Gloucester Point, and is free and open to the public.
The series, which originally aired on local PBS station WHRO on Sept. 3, features Parker, who shares his humorous take on small town gems in Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay region. As a native Virginian, Parker brings his quick wit and knack for finding the people who help to tell an area’s story, uncovering gems of small towns and the original tastes along Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay region.
“We are excited to see this new show highlighting unique and exciting things to do in our community,” said Brooke Corley, Gloucester’s Tourism Coordinator. “We hope the public can join us for this special event to meet Dave Parker and celebrate Gloucester being in the spotlight.” (VIMS) has a three-part mission to conduct research in coastal ocean and estuarine science, educate students and citizens, and provide advisory service to policy makers, industry, and the public.
