How did St. Paul become a Main Street community? In 1998, a new way of thinking emerged and things started happening. The work of a forward- thinking councilwoman and a mayor secured a $10,000 grant to create a viable plan for economic development, community revitalization, and respon- sible environmental con- servation. St. Paul Tomorrow was founded by Suzy Harrison and Lou Wallace, incorpo- rated in 1999, and granted nonprofit status in 2003. Charter members of the St. Paul Tomorrow Board were Suzy Harrison, Bob Harrison, Lou Wallace, Bill Wallace, Kyle Fletcher, Bob Ramey, Sandy Ramey, Teresa Harless (TNC), Bill Kittrell (TNC In Absentia), Ron Flanary ( In ,Absentia), Peyton Russo, [Patsy Phillips, Allen Gregory, Ann Gregory, Peyton Gregory, and Sue Blevins.

In that same year, St. Paul became a designat- ed Main Street community, after a lengthy application process by St. Paul Tomorrow, Inc. The Main Street program was created in 1980 by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, to bring back life to downtowns across America, through historic preservation and economic development. This elite program has offered more opportunities for grants, technical support, and community development training. Designation is usually for towns with a population of 5,000 or more. But, due to persist- ence of the volunteers, our town of @ 1,000 was des- ignated, and is the smallest of the 28 Main Street com- munities in Virginia., We continue to meet the. rigor- ous criteria and have been nationally accredited every year.

"Virginia produces both slicing and pickling vari- eties of cucumbers, and most summer cucumbers are harvested from the middle of June through the end of August," noted Tony Banks, a commodity mar- keting specialist for Virginia Farm Bureau Federation. The state's fresh market cucumbers were valued at more than $1.2 million in 2015, he added. During the 2015 growing season, Virginia farmers harvested 320 acres of fresh-market cucumbers that yielded more than 3 million pounds. "Cucumbers are a pro- lific summer treat and yield lots of fruit for wholesale and,retail markets," Banks said. "Cucumbers make an excellent choice when buy- ing locally." In addition, "increasing consumption of foods like cucumbers decreases the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and mortality while promoting a healthy complexion, increased energy and overall lower weight," reported Megan Ware, a registered dietitian, in Medical News Today. Ware also pointed out some of the main benefits of cucumbers: They are mostly water and full of important elec- trolytes, so they're a per- fect food to help prevent dehydration during hot weather. Adding cucumber to water is a great way to increase water consump- tion as well. Cucumbers are a good source of vitamin K, which is important for improving calcium absorption essen- tial for bone health. Cucumbers contain high levels of nutrients known as cucurbitacins, which may have anti-cancer prop- erties. When used topically, cucumber has a cooling and soothing effect that decreases, swelling, irrita- tion and inflammation. Cucumber slices can be placed on the eyes to decrease morning puffiness or placed on the skin to alleviate and treat sunburn.
