FeedMore honors Henrico volunteers


FeedMore recognized several volunteers from Henrico County recently in honor of National Volunteer Appreciation Week. The volunteers - William Cary, Phil Newton and Yvette Gilmore – have given eight total years of service to the agency, which works to fight hunger in Central Virginia.

“It’s heartbreaking to realize there are kids in our community who are hungry,” said Cary (pictured, at right), a volunteer with FeedMore’s Children’s Programs. “Nobody, young or old, should be hungry.” > Read more.

Replica guns confiscated at airport

A man was stopped by TSA officers at Richmond International Airport (RIC) on Sept. 22 at 11:30 a.m. after the officer who was staffing the checkpoint x-ray machine detected two guns in his carry-on bags. The guns were confiscated by the airport's police department, which determined that they were replica guns. The man, who was originally ticketed to fly to Dallas Fort-Worth, was allowed to continue on the flight.

Officials are reminding travelers that actual firearms and realistic replicas of firearms are prohibited in carry-on bags and must be packed in checked baggage. Travelers can be fined up to $11,000 if they are caught with prohibited items at the airport.

At Short Pump Elementary School, collaborative efforts between a group of passionate students and teachers have led to the creation of The Stinger Trail, a nature and fitness trail on the school grounds that is accessible to all members of the community and encourages outdoor learning and community projects.

Judy Fitzpatrick, along with her fourth-grade class from last year, designed the trail that stemmed from her passion for nature and desire to share outside-the-classroom learning with other students. > Read more.

Weekend Top 10

Looking for something to do this weekend? You've come to the right place. Below are details about this weekend's top 10 events around town, as selected by Henrico Citizen Events Editor Sarah Story. > Read more.

10k fun begins

At 40,000 participants and still growing, it's no wonder that the homegrown Ukrop's' Monument Avenue 10k has moved into the national spotlight – even earning a USA Today ranking among the top 10 races in the country.

But as several of the event's biggest fans emphasized at a Jan. 4 kick-off celebration, the 10k is much more than just a race – or even just a single event.

When you consider all the preparations that go into the weeks leading up to the March 31 race – the training team workouts, registration rallies, fundraising promotions, costume-designing and party-stop planning – it's clear that the 10k is months in the making, with aspects of party, charitable benefit, self-improvement regimen and music festival combining to provide an ongoing celebration.

It's also clear that having fun reins supreme. > Read more.
