Saturday’s Treasures And Then Some

From neighbor:

The estate sale at 409 1/2 S. Laurel will be back on this Saturday from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm. Please come out and check out some treasures!

A lot of things happening around downtown this Saturday:

President Obama (and Coach Smart) is speaking at VCU, so beware of traffic craziness in that direction. (Maybe someone else will speak up…)

Although a bit out of the neighborhood, bicycle riders will converge at Dove Street and Richmond Henrico Turnpike at 10 am for the long awaited ribbon cutting of the Cannon Creek Greenway. It will be interesting to see how this and other greenway connections contribute to the Cap2Cap Trail (click here for their ride next weekend) and the East Coast Greenway. According to the latest riverfront planning, the East Coast Greenway will include the pedestrian bridge under Belle Island.

As mentioned here earlier, Oregon Hill’s closest branch of the Richmond Public Library, the Main branch, will be hosting the Friends of the Richmond Public Library Book Sale. Across 2nd Street from the Main library, the Richmond Hostel will be hosting a yard sale from 9 am to noon.

Also, Asian Festival at the Richmond Convention Center and Que Pasa Festival on the Canal Walk.

And then, closer to home, Medea Benjamin will be appearing at the William Byrd Community House from 7 pm to 9 pm at a Defenders meeting. Medea Benjamin is promoting her new book called Drone Warfare.
