Art on Wheels is working with Studio Two Three to create the World’s Largest Collagraph- composed of clothing, which represents someone who fought cancer. A collagraph is a print that is made with various materials that you wouldn’t traditionally consider to be used in print making. In this case it’s clothing.

To Honor loved ones in our community, We will be using clothing to represent each honoree.

The clothing will be made into a printmaking plate and be printed on one piece of fabric using a steamroller.

How to Register a Loved One
Gather an Outfit. Make sure it is a complete outfit (ie pants and shirt). The outfit does not have to be the honoree’s actual clothing, just represent them.
Bring outfit to one of the Registration Sites along with a completed registration form and a $25 registration fee.
We have a maximum of 300 honoree’s to be included in the World Record. Don’t delay make your submission today!
Note: Outfits will be destroyed in the printing process and will not be returned
July 31st: Deadline to Register

This Saturday Diversity Thrift along with other community organizations is helping out with a One Stop Submission Day:

Kickstarter-funded Ruby Scoops ice cream shop to open on Brookland Park Boulevard later this fall

“We’re trying to create memories, and we’re trying to create moments in your life that you will always remember that kind of stem from what we make,” Kamara said.

From the Richmond Times-Dispatch:

Rabia Kamara recalls drinking a sweet, sugary Colombian beverage as a 5-year-old in Silver Spring, Md. It wasn’t until she was at an international market over 25 years later that she came across the beverage again and fell in love with it anew.

Kamara wants to create similar memories for customers at her ice cream shop, Ruby Scoops Ice Cream and Sweets, which is in the works on Richmond’s Brookland Park Boulevard in North Side. There, Kamara plans to add a unique spin on ice cream flavors, with twists such as Peaches N’ Herb, Sweet Corn Basil and Lemon Honey Chamomile.

“We’re trying to create memories, and we’re trying to create moments in your life that you will always remember that kind of stem from what we make,” Kamara said.

Beginning Wednesday, September 23, GRTC is offering riders a safe and accessible shuttle service to reach the new City of Richmond’s Office of the General Registrar, which was recently relocated to a larger facility with more room to observe social distancing for in-person absentee voting. Pre-election day services are available through October 31 at the new building at 2134 West Laburnum Avenue, Richmond, Virginia 23227.

Smaller, nimbler shuttle vans pick up passengers Monday – Saturday from two popular connection points in the GRTC bus network: 9th and Marshall on the North side of City Hall, and Broad and Robinson on the North side of the street by the Science Museum of Virginia. GRTC remains zero-fare, and shuttles are free to ride, as well, with funding support provided by the City of Richmond.

The service operates hourly. Weekday trips start at City Hall at 7:45 AM and run once an hour, with the last trip leaving the registrar’s location at 5:15 PM. Additional early voting service operates once an hour on both Saturday October 24 and 31 from 8:45 AM until the last trip at 5:15 PM.

CARE customers can continue to use CARE van service for free and may schedule trips to the new registrar’s office.

The Office of the General Registrar is open as a pre-election day voting location starting September 18 through October 31 from 8 AM to 5 PM, Monday to Friday, except holidays, and 9 AM to 5 PM the two Saturdays before every election. Additional pre-election day voting locations open October 24 through October 31 at City Hall (900 East Broad Street) and Hickory Hill Community Center (3000 East Belt Boulevard) on weekdays 8 AM to 5 PM and on Saturdays from 9 AM to 5 PM.

The last date to vote early in-person is October 31. For a complete list of Election Day (November 3) polling locations, most of which have a bus stop nearby, click here.

Education

HCPS will provide students with free meals through school curbside service and neighborhood bus drop-offs

Published

Even when school began this week using a predominantly virtual format, families depend on the thousands of meals prepared each day by Henrico County Public Schools’ School Nutrition Services Department. The department has answered the challenge of a highly unusual school year with plans to get free breakfasts and lunches to students using two distribution systems. Nutrition staff members will offer free curbside pick-up service at all HCPS schools, and team with HCPS Pupil Transportation Services to distribute free meals directly to 66 stops in Henrico County neighborhoods, using school buses. A list of meal distribution drop-off sites follows this message.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Monday that, in accordance with the federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act, the universal meals distribution in effect since the spread of the pandemic in March would be continued through Dec. 31.

Among the features of the HCPS plan:

  • Free meals are available to any child 18 or younger at all HCPS school locations and identified bus stops.
  • Parents and guardians can pick up meals at any HCPS location regardless of where their student is enrolled.
  • Parents and guardians don’t need to provide student names or I.D. numbers to receive meals.
  • Families are strongly encouraged to apply for free and reduced-priced meals benefits, in order to participate after the current meals program expires Jan. 1, 2021.

School curbside service

Distribution of free meals will take place at all elementary, middle and high schools.

  • Monday through Thursday (Friday meals are distributed on Thursdays.)
  • 7-9 a.m.: Hot breakfasts (when available) and cold lunches.
  • 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.: Hot lunches as well as cold breakfasts for the next day.

Neighborhood distribution using school buses

HCPS buses will distribute free school meals to neighborhoods two days a week. Modifications are possible, based on demand and other logistical factors. Participants should follow social distancing and mask guidelines at bus stops.

  • Mondays and Wednesdays. On Mondays, buses will distribute meals for Monday and Tuesday. On Wednesdays, breakfasts and lunches will be distributed for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, as well as Monday breakfast.
  • Buses will make 30-minute stops at each location, between 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

The following pages contain a current list of bus stops slated for school meals distribution. See an online map of school and bus stop distribution sites by going to https://tinyurl.com/HCPSMealsSites.
