As it turned out, scheduling May 29, 2021 to “spruce up” areas along Westover Hills Boulevard was not the best idea. Sixteen drenched volunteers from the neighborhood worked through torrential downpours of well over one inch of rain to make a significantly positive difference for our neighborhood. Volunteers completed pruning of overgrown shrubbery, weed removal, planting of annuals and perennials, and spreading of City-donated mulch.
Special thanks go out to the City of Richmond’s Department of Public Works for providing the safety vests and plenty of complementary mulch to support a safe and cost-effective beautification project. Project Chairman, Robert Kelly is very appreciative of all of the volunteers who endured deplorable weather conditions to get the job done. Despite the torrential rains, the volunteer teams were able to complete work around the two brick markers and another team returned on Monday morning, Memorial Day, to complete the work at Forest Hill Avenue. Please thank the folks listed under pic #1 below for their exemplary work if you see them in the neighborhood.
