LURAY, Aug. 1 — The Town of Luray announced the hiring of Ryan Cubbage as the new assistant superintendent of Parks and Recreation on its Facebook page Monday morning. He replaces Morgan Housden, who left after several years in the position to pursue an opportunity with the World Wildlife Fund.

“Ryan’s experience with marketing, events, and outdoor activities will help us to advance our Park activities and services,” read a comment from the Town above its Facebook post announcing Cubbage’s hiring.

The post states that Cubbage is a native of Page County, a graduate of Page County High School and James Madison University, and has “worked in the Valley most of his career.”

Most recently, Cubbage served as Community Liason and Training Coordinator for the Warren Coalition and Northwestern Prevention Collaborative. The NPC is a partnership that links the Page Alliance for Community Action (PACA) with area organizations such as the Northern Shenandoah Substance Abuse Coalition and the Family Youth Initiative.

Cubbage continues to serve in the Army National Guard.

Luray’s Parks and Recreation Department is headed by Superintendent Jennifer Jenkins, and is responsible for managing the Luray-Hawksbill Greenway, Ralph H. Dean Recreation Park, Lake Arrowhead and several pocket parks, along with many programs offered to residents at these facilities throughout the year.

Most recently, the department coordinated Luray’s Downtown Get Down for the 4th of July and will host the Sunflower Festival on Sept. 3. Its “Evenings on Main” music series at Ruffner Plaza (along the Hawksbill Creek and the greenway) runs through Sept. 16, with live music from 7 to 9 p.m. every other Friday night.

This Friday, Aug. 5, the “Evenings on Main” concert series features Raised on Analog.
