7th Annual Union Hill Progressive Dessert: Friday Dec 13, 7 to 11 pm

A century ago, the residents of our neighborhood began a holiday tradition. To commemorate the spirit of the season, neighbors chose an evening in which to open their homes and share in sweet treats, hospitality, and fellowship. 

Seven years ago, present-day residents revived this great tradition with the annual Union Hill Progressive Dessert. With the help of gracious hosts, we continue our historic custom this year. 

A festive evening of merriment begins with acclaimed brass quintet Festival Brass, performing live in Jefferson Park. Warm beverages will be served to keep everyone toasty warm and in good cheer. 

If you have not received your invitation to the Union Hill Progressive Dessert and would like to participate, please contact Mark Lemaire at 804-322-3016, or

We hope you will join us! We have much to celebrate and be thankful for. 

Annual holiday walk with bagpipes from Jefferson Park to Libby Park.

The UHCA will join with Church Hill Civic Association (CHA) on Friday Dec. 6, 2013, for the annual holiday walk to Libby Park. The recording above was made last year in Jefferson Park and gives you a taste of what you'll hear this Friday.

Bagpipers will gather in Jefferson Park at 7:00 pm to play a few musical selections. At approximately 7:20pm, folks can walk with the bagpipers through the streets of Union Hill and Church Hill to St. John's Church (E Broad Street at N 25th Street). 

The group will be joined by folks who have participated in the Vesper Services at St. John's Church and the procession will continue to Libby Park where there will be carol singing and a visit from Santa. 

It is suggested that you bring a flash light.
