The Landes Letter - September 2020 Edition

Friends,

   I hope this email finds everyone doing well and staying safe. My focus this month is to introduce the Clerk's Office Historic Records Assistant and student interns. In addition, I have included the latest photos from the Augusta County Courthouse virtual photograph tour.
