Morning Buzz — Nov. 30, 2009

A daily digest of what’s going on in Fredericksburg, and what news from elsewhere is relevant here. Send suggestions to

Fredericksburg’s Christmas parade is Saturday, and the city’s Clean & Green Commission is looking for volunteers to clean up after it. Commission member Anne Little says it took city public works crews two weeks to scrape all of last year’s parade debris off the streets. There’s been a ban on throwing candy from floats this year, and the commission is hoping this volunteer component will help keep trash from turning a positive event into a nuisance. Volunteers will meet at 4:15 p.m. on Saturday at the Visitors Center. For more information on duties and whom to contact, click here.

Today’s the last day to smoke in Virginia restaurants, so go live it up if that’s your thing.
