Celebrate the first person in space at Yuri’s Night at the Westover Hills branch Library! Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about space flight, rocketry, Yuri Gagarin, and, weather permitting, get a peek at the planets and stars. Right here @ your Westover Hills library. April 1, 7 to 9 p.m. Pizza and Tang will be served. Families welcome to this fun and educational after-hours event.
The 2017 Run for the Hills 5K will be run Saturday, March 18, starting at the Stone House in Forest Hill Park at 9 a.m. Register in advance by midnight March 15 ($25) to guarantee you’ll get a race t-shirt! The event is sponsored by the Forest Hill Neighborhood Association. Even if you’re not planning to participate, come out to cheer along the course which winds through Forest Hill and Westover Hills neighborhoods. For more details, click here.
Be aware that lane closings along New Kent Road from Dorchester to Westover Hills Boulevard can be expected in the next week or so, as the city mills and paves the street.
The city will also be working on the traffic circles at New Kent Road and Riverside Drive and at intersection of New Kent Road and Bruton Road. Landscaped concrete medians and pavement markings around the circles will be installed.
Westover Hills Elementary PTA in conjunction with surrounding neighborhoods are building a community garden at the south end of the school near the trailers. All are welcome to come! This weekend will focus on preparing the area, putting down beds, soil, and mulch. Volunteers are needed! There will be people out working Saturday, March 11, from 9am-2pm and Sunday, March 12 from 11am-4pm.

We’re thrilled that Westover Hills has been chosen to be on The Garden Club of Virginia’s Historic Garden Week House and Garden Tour (Wednesday, April 26, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.) Five Beautiful homes on Riverside Drive will be featured.
Immediately following the Garden Club tour, WHNA will host a private “Twilight Tour” of the same homes — plus an extra garden– from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. It’s only open to Westover Hills residents.
WHNA needs volunteers to help with lunch sales during the tour. Local favorite, Kitchenette, will provide the lunches. There will be two one-hour shifts: Shift 1, from 11 a.m. to 12:00 noon, and Shift 2 from noon to 1 p.m. proceeds from the lunches will benefit WHNA.
WHNA also needs volunteers to during the private “Twilight Tour.” We need hosts to help in each home during two shifts: Shift 1, from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., and Shift 2: from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Cheers to Jennie Shaw and Katherine Whitehead for chairing this special event! Please contact Katherine at email@example.com to let us know if you can help.
