York County Head Start receives classroom space; DMV 2 Go at Yorktown Library


York County Head Start receives classroom
space from The Mariners' Museum
December 5, 2012
     In June of 2012 the leadership of The Mariners' Museum donated a double classroom modular unit to York County to be used by the York County Head Start Program. This generous donation allowed for the replacement of two older modular units which are now combined classrooms at Bethel Manor Elementary School. 
     According to staff of The Mariners' Museum, the modular unit was used as a classroom for the museum's educational programs, later becoming its first interactive videoconferencing studio to educate classrooms locally, across the country and around the globe. Over time, however, the museum's Education Department expanded and required additional space. The modular unit was replaced by two classrooms in the Monitor Center and the interactive video conferencing center located in proximity of the main entrance of the museum.
     Anna Holloway, PhD., Vice President of Museum Collections and Programs, said of the donation, "The module allowed us to expand our education program both actually and virtually and served us well over the years. We're so very glad that it now has another home and will continue to service the education community here in Hampton Roads!"
     Classes began on Tuesday, September 4th  in the new modular unit and it was an exciting experience for the Head Start staff, parents and children. 
     "On behalf of York County and the Head Start program, I extend my appreciation to the Mariner's Museum for such a wonderful gift that helps us to better serve Head Start families and our community," said Sheri Newcomb, Chief of York County Children's Services.

December 4, 2012
     The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles' (DMV) mobile office program DMV 2 Go has scheduled visits to provide services to the citizens of Yorktown.   The DMV 2 Go will visit York County Public Library – Yorktown branch - the third Tuesday of every other month. The next visit of DMV 2 Go is scheduled for Tuesday, December 18, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Yorktown branch is located at 8500 George Washington Memorial Highway.
     Services available at DMV 2 Go include vehicle registration, driver's license renewals, license plate renewals, and other DMV services. Veterans can obtain ID cards at the DMV 2 Go. If you are a veteran requiring an ID card, bring your DD214 with you to DMV 2 Go. 
     DMV 2 Go is a full service office on wheels that conducts any DMV transaction that can be done at a DMV office including applying or renewing driver's licenses and ID cards. One of the biggest advantages is that DMV comes at a convenient time and place instead of citizens going to the DMV.  DMV 2 Go has made successful visits to military bases, colleges and universities, government centers, festivals, and more. You can also visit the following link on DMV's website for more information:
