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.

Short Pump Rotary volunteers help with rebuild, repair


On June 13, the Short Pump Rotary Club partnered with Schnabel Engineering for a day of volunteer work with Rebuilding Together Richmond. Team members (among them [from left] Chris Rufe, Melissa Abraham, Rick Naschold, and Micky Ogburn) completed a variety of repairs and home improvements ranging from painting and landscaping to cabinet installation and fence building.

“It was a privilege to be involved in this project," said club president Melissa Abraham. "The homeowner kept thanking the volunteers, but I think all of us would agree we are the ones who actually benefited. It was an opportunity to help a community member, fellowship with great people and improve our handyman skills." > Read more.
