EHBA seeks ‘Bikes for Kids’ sponsors

The Eastern Henrico Business Association (EHBA), with the help of title sponsor The Shops at White Oak Village, is working on a project to provide four bikes to each elementary school throughout the Varina District.

A total of 44 bikes and helmets will be needed to accomplish the EHBA objective of donating four bikes per school. The bikes – two boys' and two girls' bikes per school – will be displayed from late April to early May as an incentive for students to try their best on their SOL tests. Every child who tries hard when taking the tests will have his or her name included in a drawing for the bikes, to be conducted by the school principal after the tests are over.

EHBA is asking for contributions of $100 to purchase a bike and helmet, but any amount will be accepted. Individuals, businesses, associations or clubs can sponsor an entire elementary school with a $400 contribution and will have the opportunity to deliver the bikes to the school.

Checks (made out to "EHBA/Bikes for Kids") can be mailed to EHBA, P.O. Box 816, Sandston VA 23150.

CMoR reopens at new Short Pump site

The Children’s Museum of Richmond last week opened its new Short Pump location at Short Pump Town Center, to the delight of children who attended a sneak preview of the location July 10. The new facility, located under the forthcoming LL Bean store (formerly the food court) is 8,500 square feet in size – much larger than CMoR’s former Short Pump location at West Broad Village, which opened in 2010. The new space includes The CarMax Foundation Service Station, the Silver Diner, a grocery store, a performance stage and an art studio, as well as a giant Light Bright Wall. > Read more.

Minion mania

Spinoff is predictably silly, devoid of plot

In Minions, those jibberjabbering little corncob things from Despicable Me have finally earned their own feature film. Specifically, three of them: Kevin (tall), Stuart (plays the ukulele) and Bob (loves his teddy bear), all voiced by co-director Pierre Coffin.

After tracing the evolution of Minionkind – we don’t know what they are, but we know they’re hardwired to serve the baddest villain around – our three Minion heroes set off upon a quest to save their species and find the newest, nastiest villain overlord. > Read more.
