Hi, From Carissa 5/24/19

May 24, 2019

Happy Friday Richmond Friends, can you believe it is the unofficial start of Summer?! Memorial Day 2019. It looks like the weather is going to be perfect in RVA for all of the fun we have happening in town.  This month has flown by! June will be here next week, and that means; end of school, the start of summer camps and vacations and some unstructured time! We will have some day trip ideas, reading programs, movie fun and more special listings for you. 

We walked for autism last week with Autism Society Of central Virginia, and it was wonderful. Our team "On Your Mark' won the spirit award and I was so touched! We worked hard and we had fun for such a great cause. My heart was full. 

We have a full calendar and some great news from our advertisers, be sure to spend some time checking it all out. I am super excited about Cathy Motley- Fitch's workshop for teens, focusing on "how to talk", read her article below. 

Also, a giveaway to see SPARC's LIVE ART performance with Jason Mraz, read about it below. 

Also, help us welcome Hanover Sports Park to our directory,  a driving range, batting cage and mini golf! Fun for Summer Planning!

May will be dedicated to quotes for Mother's Day! Here are this weeks :

"This is what we do, my mother's life said. We find ourselves in the sacrifices we make." ―Cammie McGovern, Neighborhood Watch

. "Motherhood is a choice you make every day, to put someone else's happiness and well-being ahead of your own, to teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing even when you're not sure what the right thing is...and to forgive yourself, over and over again, for doing everything wrong." ―Donna Ball, At Home on Ladybug Farm
