The Tredegar Society Presents . . .
Featuring Three Sheets to the Wind

On Friday, April 20th, the Tredegar Society will host LOOSE CANNONS at the American Civil War Center at Historic Tredegar, an evening featuring Three Sheets to the Wind, America’s #1 Tribute to Yacht Rock.

Your $25 ticket includes beer, wine, and four hours of yacht rock at a beautiful historic venue by the James River! All proceeds raised will benefit the American Civil War Center, which seeks to tell the whole story of the conflict that still shapes our nation.

At 7pm, Three Sheets to the Wind, named “Best Band” by Richmond Magazine, and “Best Cover Band” by STYLE Weekly in 2011, will take the stage to kick off an evening of Yacht Rock classics from the ‘70s & ‘80s. Revelers will also have the opportunity to explore the Historic site where Iron Works Era buildings still stand. More exciting details to come…

Doors open at 6pm. Music starts at 7pm.

Trash/Recycling Tomorrow

This Wednesday is a red Wednesday, which means trash and recycling pickup. Please make sure you pick up containers after pickup tomorrow night. They do not belong on the sidewalk after tomorrow night.

Fun recycling fact:

Used aluminum beverage cans are the most recycled item in the U.S., but other types of aluminum, such as siding, gutters, car components, storm window frames, and lawn furniture can also be recycled.
