“A Puppet Barn for ALL THE SAINTS!!”

If you like the annual All The Saints Halloween Parade that rolls through our neighborhood then you might want to consider a donation to help All The Saints build a puppet barn.

From the gofundme.com page:

“Dearest friends and supporters of All the Saints Theater Company,

Although we are losing the present location of the Puppet Library, the show must go on! The puppet lending and puppet organizing and collaborating, parade making, spaghetti dinner hosting, and Lily performances will continue until the end of time..because it is just what we do.

But the way we do it needs to change in order to sustain Richmond’s raising cost of living and real estate. Sooo we have mastered a plan!

Our plan? To raise $$$ for a Puppet Barn in Lily’s backyard in Southside Forest Hill where the community can continue to have access to the puppets and workshops that she offers without the stress of month to month rent and the reality behind a gentrified Richmond.

Our goal is $7, 000 to…

-raise a barn big enough, dry enough, and warm enough that Lily can continue her work in a peaceful and productive way!

Please help us in the crucial time of transition to create a space that can always be the bastion of radical puppet theater in RVA!

Donations of $100 + can have an option of taking home your own puppet from the library current collection.

Brick Sidewalk Work Celebrated

Many neighbors along S. Laurel Street are very excited and appreciative about the brick sidewalk work that is being done.

Neighbor Kathy Talley had this to day:

I am especially pleased at how the handicapped accessible corners were done at Laurel and Spring: as much brick as possible was preserved. It is a huge improvement over what was done at Pine and Spring a couple of years ago: just using all concrete. The new method should become the city standard.

Still to be done:

(I think we can cross off #7 off the old list.)

Anyone Lose A Dog?

From Craigslist ad:

At about 7:00pm a brown/black pit bull wandered up to us on the 100 block of pine street. Well taken care of with a collar, no information. I know somebody is missing this well behaved baby. Contact me to grab your dog.

Belle Island River Rescue

WTVR reports on yet another James River rescue from this afternoon:

Virginia State Police and the Richmond Fire Department rescued a woman and two girls from the rocks near Belle Isle in Richmond Saturday afternoon.

The group made it out onto the rocks, but was unable to get back due to high water.

Thankfully no one was hurt.

Reminder- when the river level is high like it is now, everyone must wear a life jacket by law.
