Locust Grove Neighborhood Summer River Mural Painting Update!

Hello Locust Grove neighbors!

The River Mural Project dates noted through yellow fliers sent to your door recently and also described on the LGNA website and FB has been changed due to the City repair work in June on the Northeast Park footbridge. The new dates are JULY 18th and 19th with a rain date of JULY 25th and 26th! Mark you calendars and contact Cynthia (me!) about ways to get involved TODAY in this neighborhood wide project for all ages!  We will all be painting a mural over 100 feet long, of our beloved neighborhood Meadowcreek and Rivanna River.  Come join the fun and paint or cheer on the painters in YOUR family!

Call me at 434 960 7077 or email me at cjfmoms@gmail.com.

The Locust Grove Neighborhood Meeting will be this Thurs, Apr 9, @ 1214 Belleview Ave, 7-8 pm. Come one and come all.

Get connected TODAY with your neighborhood community here in Locust Grove!

The Locust Grove Neighborhood Association (LGNA) is hoping to get everyone in the neighborhood’s contact info, either email or phone no. so you can be in the loop about what’s happening in your neighborhood. (strictly private never for solicitations). This could be picnics, yard sales, house sales/rentals, community projects, etc. An email would be sent once a month at the most. It could also be to alert your household about a break in or something similar. There are two additional ways :

check out and “LIKE” our FaceBook page: Locust Grove Neighborhood Association

or visit right here where you are regularly,  our neighborhood website!

Do also take a moment to send your contact info to the LGNA secretary, Vicky Lee, at v.lee23@gmail.com or call Cynthia at 434 960 7077 and tell her or leave a message. Then you will get neighborhood updates straight to your inbox ( roughly once a month, not all the time!).

Many thanks!!!
