Christmas Food Drive for Family Resource Center

Your Union Hill neighbors placed these bags on front porches earlier this week. 
As we come together with family and friends for the holidays, we want to remember those in our neighborhood who might benefit from a donation of non-perishable food items.
If you can, please take a moment to place canned food items in the bag that was placed on your front porch.  

Please leave the flyer attached to your bag and return it to your front porch either the morning of Wednesday, December 17 or Monday, December 22.
Volunteers will be collecting bags on those days and will take them directly to the Family Resource Center on Jefferson Avenue.  The food will be added to their food pantry, which directly benefits folks in the East End of Richmond.

Special thanks to Kroger for providing the bags.

Thank you for your contribution and Merry Christmas!

Holiday Tree Decorating this Saturday Morning

A message from the Friends of Jefferson Park and Mark Lemare:

Jefferson Park's Lonesome Pine is going to get decorated for the holidays this Saturday morning at 9:00. Hot chocolate and treats will await. Please feel free to bring any decorations you would like to donate to the cause. The tree is located near the performance stage.

Later that evening the Union Hill Civic Association will be holding a tree illumination ceremony to kick off the Progressive Dessert tour. The festivities will begin at 6:30.

This is an old picture--the tree is MUCH BIGGER now.
