WILLIAMSBURG-Child Development Resources (CDR) recently raised more than $50,000 during its third annual oyster roast on October 30.

More than 300 individuals attended the event, which was sponsored by several local businesses and community members including: Optimal Service Goup (presenting sponsor); John and Sara Fogerty; Bruce and Kathy Hornsby; Morrison Dental Group; The Cheese Shop; Alewerks Brewing Company; Taylored Printing and Via Design; and Williamsburg Jewelers.

“We were thrilled by the support we received for this event from our donors and the Williamsburg community,” said Paul Scott, CDR’s executive director, in a release. “The afternoon was all about reconnecting with friends and raising funds to support the babies and small children in Williamsburg, James City County, York County, and Poquoson who need CDR’s services.”

The organization serves more than 1,200 babies and toddlers and their families to help ensure that all children, no matter what their developmental challenges, reach their full potential. For more information, visit

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
