About 100 people, including area leaders and bicycle advocates, braved the rain to celebrate the dedication of the James City County trailhead of the Virginia Capital Trail.  The event took place at the new kiosk and shelter, funded by Dominion Power.  Matoaka Elementary choir entertained the crowd and the girls running club provided tangible evidence to the benefits of the Virginia Capital Trail.  Guest speakers included Senator Tommy Norment, Dominion CEO Paul Koonce, and Virginia First Lady Maureen McDonnell.
