The Landes Letter - December 2021 Edition


   I hope this email finds everyone doing well and staying safe. My focus this month is to provide updates from the Clerk's Office including donations my office received to restore historic records along with staff updates.

   I have also included the latest photos from the Augusta County Courthouse virtual photograph tour. Please enjoy the latest photos.


Staff Updates

   During our quarterly Clerk's Staff Meeting Julie Sheffer, Senior Deputy Clerk in our Court Division, was recognized for 10 years of service to the citizens of Augusta County, and given the November Clerk's Light Bulb Award for her idea to have a sign outside of each courtroom listing cases for that day to help attorneys and the public.

   The Clerk’s Office recently received a $3,416 donation from the Augusta County Genealogical Society to restore 14 early Augusta County 20th century African-American Voting Registers.

Virtual Photograph Tour

   This is our continuing Augusta County Courthouse virtual photograph tour. This old stand alone safe is located in our Courthouse main entrance hall. It's been locked for a while, and we plan to have it opened soon to see what's inside!

   This is our Christmas Tree in the Record Room, and the Clerk's Staff with one of our Portico Christmas Wreaths. By tradition the Judge provides a tree and the Clerk provides the wreaths for Christmas!
