AlbemarleFamily Introduces New Mascot

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (June 2005) – AF now has Bumble the bee as cuddly community ambassador. His name is Bumble. He’s a bumblebee, the sweetest honey-loving resident of Charlottesville-Albemarle. This big huggable bee will make his debut on Thursday, June 9 at the Barracks Road Fountain for the June Mommy & Me Event. Many AlbemarleFamily readers will recognize Bumble as a regular character in the Clubhouse stories featured in AlbemarleFamily Living.
