COVID-19 Pandemic

Shelter in Place until June 10: Governor Northam announcement today extends the "stay at home" mandate through the spring.

Wash your hands. Don't touch your face. Carry sanitizer. Stay home or away from group events. Check on family, friends or neighbors who live alone. Stock up on food and necessities, but not at the expense of your neighbors. (The only reason there is a TP shortage is because people have bought far more than they need now)

Check the CDC website for national updates on the pandemic. The Virginia Department of Health site includes the Richmond Department of Health updates.

New Year! New Administration! New Motivations!

Dear Friends,

2017 is here and there is good work ahead of us on the Community Proposal for a Shockoe Bottom Memorial Park. With a new city administration and school board, the opportunity for new discussions and outcomes is great. Look for an update in the next couple of weeks.

Looking forward,

Sacred Ground Project
