Hi, From Carissa 5/31/19

May 31, 2019

Happy Friday Richmond Friends, It is the last day of May and Summer is really getting close. Schools are almost out and our kids will be looking for ways to keep their days full. Our Summer Camp guide still has many with openings and is full of ideas. 

I hope everyone enjoyed their Memorial Day weekend, the weather was perfect for me! We actually ran through sprinklers in our backyard! 

This weekend is one of my favorite festivals, Broad Appetit! Plus, SPARC, Live Art! is at Altria on Sunday, it is a fun packed weekend, so be sure to check out the calendar.

If you have a teenager,  be sure to check out  Cathy Motley- Fitch's workshop for teens, focusing on "how to talk", read her article below. 

Watch for some great Father's Day giveaways starting next weekend. We cannot forget about our dads! 

We have our 2019 Regal Movie Summer Program and Summer Reading perks this week too. Plus, National Donut Day is June 7, 2019!

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

“Mother’s love is bliss, is peace, it need not be acquired, it need not be deserved. If it is there, it is like a blessing; if it is not there it is as if all the beauty had gone out of life.” —Erich Fromm

 “Everybody wants to save the Earth; nobody wants to help Mom do the dishes.” —P.J. O’Rourke
