Siebert goes... PINK! Passionately Pink & Jeans - Team Siebert was encouraged to wear pink on October 7th in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Plus... Team Members wishing to wear “jeans” to work were asked to donate $10 to the cause.  We also had a donation jar set up for even more contributions. 

We’re proud to say we raised a lot of money and the company generously matched that amount to be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation:  http://ww5.komen.org

Halloween at Hunt Club Farm

     Hunt Club Farm Haunted Hayride 
Through Monday, October 31st

Dates in GREEN are Open Nights
at Haunted Hunt Club Farms
The festival’s most-feared attraction, The Haunted Hayride – is Virginia Beach’s original hayride and will take voyeurs on a bumpy ride through the deep, dark woods of Haunted Hunt Club Farm. 

Climb aboard for a chilling look at the “Seven Deadly Sins” as dozens of diabolical degenerates put their vices of wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy and gluttony on display and beg for your repentance.  

Don’t think your friends on the hay wagon can protect you from the murderous mayhem. The path through these woods is narrow, especially the one through the decrepit old barn, located just past the farm’s ominous graveyard. And our tractors have been known to break down at the most inopportune times.  All we can say is: Be ready and beware! These grounds are crawling with sinners searching for someone to save their sick souls. Will you be among the chosen? Other scary attractions... Field of Screams and Village of the Dead. Hunt Club Farms / 2388 London Bridge Road, Virginia Beach, VA / 757-427-9520. 

And for the Kiddies...

    Back Bay NWR
    Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) is located in the southeastern corner of Virginia. Back Bay NWR was established by Presidential Proclamation in 1938 to provide habitat for migrating and wintering waterfowl, particularly greater snow geese. Today, the refuge continues to be an important link in the chain of national wildlife refuges located along the Atlantic Flyway.

    Back Bay NWR contains more than 9,100 acres of land, situated on a thin strip of coastline typical of barrier islands found along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. Habitats include beach, dunes, woodlands, farm fields and marshes. The majority of the refuge marshlands are located on islands contained within Back Bay waters

    Approximately 10,000 snow geese and a large variety of ducks and other waterfowl visit Back Bay NWR during the annual peak migration, usually in December and January. The refuge also provides habitat for a wide assortment of other wildlife, including threatened and endangered species such as loggerhead sea turtles and piping plovers.

    Visitor Station Hours
