Save the dates! Spring Tree Planting April 26 and 27

Calling all Union Hill friends and neighbors! We have over 30 trees to plant starting Arbor Day, Friday April 26 and continuing on Saturday, April 27. We'll plant new trees, mulch the tree wells, pull weeds and beautify the sidewalks.

Union Hill resident and tree lover Mark Kronenthal is coordinating this effort. 
If you'd like to help organize or volunteer in a special way, contact Mark directly at

Check back here for more details as we get closer to Fri/Sat April 26 & 27.  We'll post the exact times, locations and volunteer opportunities here.

Hill Topper 5K--Sunday March 26, 2013

Our neighborhood's annual 5K race is coming! It's lots of fun. You can run, jog, or walk with your friends and family through Richmond's oldest community.

Volunteers are needed to be course marshals, hand out post-race food, and help with the course set-up/clean-up.  Contact if you can help/for more info.

Go to to learn more about the race and sign up.
