HIDDEN TREASURE

South Boston News
Occoneechee State Park in Clarksville welcomed international visitors on Monday, July 14 from Belgium. The Serbest family of Linter, Belgium was wrapping up three weeks of touring the East Coast and decided to camp in the area. Kerim and Lieve with their four children Yoran, 11, Ilyas, 13, Iris, 15, and Sara, 18, were making the most of their stay — bird watching, learning about the Native American culture in the Commonwealth, and taking a few minutes looking for a local geocache. Kerim added that connecting to the historical peoples of the region and exploring the natural surroundings were two of the many reasons to explore the world, and looks to share and create those experiences with his family.
