GET READY FOR LOTS OF FUN IN WESTOVER HILLS THIS FOURTH OF JULY!!!
Westover Hills Neighborhood 4th of July Children’s Parade 2018, starting at 10:00 am
Get ready to decorate those bicycles, scooters, strollers and canine companions for the 18th annual Westover Hills Neighborhood Fourth of July Parade on Wednesday, July 4, at 10 a.m. The parade will begin at the intersection of Peterborough and Sylvan Road and conclude at 5021 Sylvan Road, where you can socialize with neighbors and have Fourth of July snow cones and popcorn before you continue on to other celebrations. Come be a part of this simple, fun, festive neighborhood tradition. Children love to have neighbors come out to line the streets and cheer them on! This event will be “rain or shine” but in case of heavy rain please understand that decorations will be limited, and the snow cones will be under the Dysart’s back deck, as the machines can’t get wet.
Riverside Drive to close for Fourth of July
For many years, neighbors have worked with police to close Riverside Drive to provide a fantastic view of the city’s Fourth of July fireworks display. Thank you to Jennie and Travis Shaw for spearheading this effort and to all of those who are respectful of neighbors’ yards while enjoying the festivities. Bring your lawn chairs, picnic blankets, and settle in for the most beautiful view of the Carillon fireworks!

It’s here again! Our annual neighborhood-wide Spring Clean-Up on Saturday, May 12th starting at 8:00 am. The City of Richmond provides the trucks and drivers, so that WHNA volunteers can follow behind and “hoist in” discarded household furnishings, yard debris, and other items from either in the alley or in the street in front of homes without alleys.
Please email Robert Kelly at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at 231-0629 to volunteer for the WHNA general clean-up project.
