Posted on Wednesday, June 19, 2019 at 9:55 am

The Town of Warsaw officially thanked Tom Rhodes for his carvings in The Enchanted Forest and recognized him for his work in the town and the Northern Neck.

At last week’s town council meeting, Mayor Randall Phelps deemed Rhodes “a friend of the community.”

Phelps said his children have thoroughly enjoyed Rhodes’ carvings for many years. And whether he’s traveling across the Northern Neck, in Fredericksburg or in Richmond, he meets people who know about the walking trail.

“People come to the town for that,” Phelps told Rhodes.

Phelps read a resolution that recognized Rhodes as a skilled artisan. The document noted that through the Enchanted Forest, Rhodes has touched the lives of many people, children and adults. And his many selfless works and acts of kindness have achieved statewide recognition.

The motion to express the town’s honor and gratitude for Rhodes dedication to the community was unanimously adopted. Phelps presented Rhodes with a copy and said it would be put in the official record of the town council, making it a part of Warsaw history.
