Do you remember going to the Carnival when you were a kid? I know I do. It was the first time I tasted cotton candy; the first time I rode the Ferris Wheel; even the first (real) date I ever went on! In fact, Carnivals have been creating memories for people, young and old, for more than 40 years.
This year Westover Hills Elementary School is holding it’s first carnival, on June 2, 2012 from 10am until 2pm.The Carnival is going to be a big event for Westover, with the whole school devoted to carnival games, inflatables’ and much more, and let’s not forget cotton candy, snow cones, and lots of food.
We are estimating that there will be at least 150 students, parents and the members of the community attending the carnival.

Rain Barrel Workshop
Sat Jun 9 6:00 pm
Presented by: Clean Virginia Waterways and Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay
Registration Fee: $65 per rain barrel
Location: Forest Hill Park (The Stone House)
4021 Forest Hill Avenue, Richmond, VA
Why Rain Barrels? Rain Barrels can be placed under
your down spouts to capture roof runoff. The water stored in the
rain barrel can be used to water gardens or lawn. Rain barrels
can also help control stormwater runoff, which causes erosion
and degrades our streams.
Benefits. Although rain barrels are available at
garden stores, they are not cheap! During the workshop you will learn how to install and maintain your rain barrel, plus about your role in water conservation and water quality protection. Learn how you impact the Chesapeake Bay and other waterways. You will leave the workshop with a pre-made rain barrel that was once a pickle barrel.
Note: this is not a “hands-on” workshop.
