The Kickers continue to prepare for the home opener on March 28th. On Saturday they faced Virginia United a team that they previously played in last year’s Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.
The visitors never really threatened but managed to go into the half with a 0-0 scoreline. The second half was all Richmond Kickers and they netted 3 goals. Emiliano Terzaghi, Ryley Kraft, and Stan Alves all got on the scoresheet. The prettiest of the goals was Ryley as he slammed one in a free-kick.
Conversations at the Monument this Saturday
The end goal is to record and allow for these conversations to create a framework for change and policy making at the state and local level
Councilperson Stephanie Lynch is hosting a set of five conversation stations at Marcus David Peters Circle. A chance to listen and be heard.
Location: Lee Monument, 1700 Monument Ave
Date: Saturday, August 8th
Time: 2PM – 4PM
This city has been through a lot in the last several weeks and we have heard repeatedly from both organizers and every day residents that they would like more opportunities to have their voices heard. The movement for justice and equity is a fervent one and there has never been a more pertinent opportunity to bring people together and move into the action phase with real policies and solutions. The purpose of this event is to bring various groups together to listen to one another and have facilitated conversation with legislators, local elected officials and city leaders so that we can hear directly from the people we serve and represent. This event will happen rain or shine and will start promptly at 2pm-4pm.
There will be 5 facilitated “conversation stations” for residents to record their concerns, recommendations and policy ideas. Each station will be moderated by a designated facilitator around different institutions in our system that impact black lives (Education, Criminal Justice & Public Safety, Housing, Health and mental health care, and Economic Development). The end goal is to record and allow for these conversations to create a framework for change and policy making at the state and local level as legislators prepare for the August 18th General Assembly Special Session and on the city level, the resuming of the regular City Council calendar year.
Bring a mask, dress for the weather. All are welcome and no voice will be left out.

South of the James Farmers Market Plans to Return to Forest Hill Park Next Year
Grow RVA will return home to Forest Hill Park in May 2021 with a smaller Summer Brunch Market in late August.
The neighborhood social media outlets have been a battleground of accusations, hurt feelings, whining, and sympathetic support when it comes to the South of the James Farmers Market move to Bryan Park.
GrowRVA posted yesterday hoping to clarify their plans. Will this put out the hair-rending and weekly question of “is the market coming back”? All signs point to no.
Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning how to dance in the rain.”☂️
Grow RVA has been weathering COVID-19 and working with Richmond VA Parks and Recreation, Kristen N. Larson, RMC Events and the RPD to offer the safest set up and practices in order to serve the RVA community. South of the James Farmers Market will remain in Bryan Park through the winter, as we are not sure how the virus will
continue to operate. ❤️
Grow RVA will return home to Forest Hill Park in May 2021. Until then, join us for a Summer Brunch Market in late August. More information will be posted as it is available. ❤️
And Bryan Park, big things to come Summer 2021!❤️
Thank you for your support as we navigate this current complicated situation! Good vibes go a long way!
