LOVE comes to town
LOVE has officially arrived in Henrico County. The Virginia Tourism Corporation and Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden celebrated the arrival of the VTC's giant "LOVE" artwork at the garden Nov. 22 as part of the Dominion GardenFest of Lights, which officially opened Nov. 25 and will continue through Jan. 9.
The LOVE sign is 16 feet long and more than 6 feet tall. It is part of the "Virginia is for Lovers" marketing campaign and will be on display throughout the GardenFest of Lights event. Lewis Ginter is the first attraction in the state to display the artwork, which previously has been displayed only at Virginia welcome centers statewide.
The Children's Clothing Closet at Highland Springs United Methodist Church will be open Saturday, Aug. 27 and Tuesday, Aug. 30 to provide free new or nearly new children's clothing for families in need, prior to the start of the school year. The Clothing Closet will be open from 10 a.m. to noon both days. The church is located at 22 North Holly Avenue. > Read more.
