The Pretty Penny

Pay Back the Penny!!! - 6pm

Rt. 219
Hillsboro West Virginia 24946
Price: $20 adults $7 kids - includes a



On Friday June 26th, a severe line of storms called a derecho swept through the mid-atlantic and mid-west states. The ramifications for our community were massive and losses have been great. There still many households that almost two weeks later still have no power. However, the response from the community has also been truly inspiring. In particular, the immediate response of Blair Campbell and the Pretty Penny Cafe, and the effort they organized to feed the residents of Hillsboro in light of this disaster, was phenomenal.

In 54 hours (over the course of 5 days) the Pretty Penny Cafe, with the help of community members who volunteered 500 hours, served 3,444 FREE meals to the community, traveled 372 miles to deliver those meals, and raised $1,462 for the local fire department.

Now, the town of Hillsboro and High Rocks Educational Corporation are organizing a community effort to say THANK YOU to Blair Campbell and the rest of the Pretty Penny staff for their phenomenal work.

If you are thankful that the Penny is a part of our town, our community, and our lives, then please join us TUESDAY, JULY 17th at 6pm for a fundraiser to Pay Back the Penny!

The event will feature LIVE MUSIC by Phil Ralston and Judith Avers!

We are asking for a $20 donation for adults and $7 donation for kids which provides a 3 course meal (salad, entree buffet and dessert) provided by the Pretty Penny Cafe. Additional donations can also be accepted, and Pretty Penny Cafe t-shirts will be available for sale at the event.

Thank you to everyone who has given their support during this difficult time!

Nettle Cook-off guidelines

There’s more to a nettle plant than its sting. Did you know that cooked stinging nettles are not only tasty, but rich in iron, calcium and folic acid? Have you heard that nettles can cure anemia, eczema, baldness, malcontent, boredom, and hunger? Well, it’s probably mostly true!

To celebrate the hidden wonders of the stinging nettle, we invite you to pull on some gloves, snip a bagful of the youngest leaves, cook up an original delicacy and bring it to Nettle Fest. Brave and hungry judges will award fame and prizes to the chef with the best nettle recipe! Read the Nettle Cook-off guidelines below for more details.

· See poem below or wear gloves for safe handling.
· Gather nettles in an inconspicuous, sustainable manner. (No more than 10% of the plants in an area)
· Cook up something at home with nettle as a significant ingredient.
· Bring it in a covered dish with your name taped to the bottom to Nettle Fest by 2pm.

"Tender-handed stroke a nettle,
And it stings you for your pains;
Grasp it like a man [or woman] of mettle,
And it soft as silk remains."
-Aaron Hill, early 18th century, Scotland

Carnegie Hall opening for Tristan Prettyman


Lewisburg wv

105 Court Street.

Tristan Prettyman

Since emerging on the California club scene just a few short years ago, singer/songwriter and guitarist Tristan Prettyman has been acclaimed as one of today’s most remarkable new artists. With laid-back melodies springing from finger-picked acoustic guitar and plaintive pedal-steel guitar, she explores her love of country-blues and folk from the ’60s and ’70s, artists like The Band, Joni Mitchell, and Bob Dylan. Rolling Stone calls Prettyman “one of the more promising young pop folkies.”
