Community Movie Night
Friday, May 27 at Dusk
Pleasants Park behind Pine Street Baptist Church
Free refreshments: hot dogs, chips, pasta salad and dessert
Photo taken this morning. Alley conditions were a big source of conversation last night at the neighborhood association meeting (maybe we start a GoFundMe campaign for gravel?). This problem has been in existence for years, and I keep going back to an earlier post about the future of our alleys.
From VCU Police:
Need a place to dump bags of trash when moving out of apartments? VCU’s Division of Community Engagement has a map posted online.

From the Times Dispatch article:
Richmond firefighters found the body of Ronda M. Moss, 48, of the 600 block of Robcurn Drive in Henrico, about 2 p.m. Monday near the Mayo Bridge, police said.
On Sunday, witnesses told police they had seen a woman leap from the Lee Bridge about 10:30 p.m., and officers found an unoccupied vehicle on the span.
From email announcement:
A reminder that OHNA will be holding its regular monthly meeting tonight at 7 pm at St. Andrew’s.
This Wednesday is a red Wednesday, which means trash and recycling pickup. Ideally, rolling recycling containers are stored and deployed in the back alleys along with trash cans. Please make sure you pick up containers after pickup tomorrow night.
A couple of additional notes:
Locally, with the school year drawing to a close, it is time for student renters and others who are moving to consider how to deal with all of their stuff. With the City budget strained, it is important that stuff is recycled and disposed of properly, without just dumping it on the sidewalk, street, and alley. I am happy to post neighborhood yard sale notices on this site. There are also certainly a number of local thrift stores and charities that are willing to receive furniture donations.
Sadly, the 5th District Cleanup/RVA Cleansweep event this past Saturday was cancelled due to weather, but there is an Oregon Hill alley cleanup scheduled for June 4th, organized by Cherry Street neighbor Jimmy Blackford.
There’s been lot of internet/social media interest in these new edible/biodegradable six pack beer can rings. Will local breweries implement them?
Mojo’s will feature Terrapin Beer Co. for a ‘tap takeover’ this Thursday. The event starts at 8pm after Happy Hour and goes all night. This will be a steal the glass event so dont be late if you want free glassware.

Though Triple Crossing is not in Oregon Hill, it is our closest commercial brewery within walking distance…and tonight at 6 pm there-
From the FaceBook event page:
Join us for a special night with an experiment combining all 4 LP’s played simultaneously on 4 turntables.
Zaireeka is the eighth studio album by the alternative rock band The Flaming Lips. Released on October 28, 1997, the experimental rock album consists of four Compact Discs. Each of its eight songs consists of four stereo tracks, one from each CD. The album was designed so that when played simultaneously on four separate audio systems, the four CDs would produce a harmonic or juxtaposed sound. The discs can also be played in different combinations, omitting one, two or three discs. The album’s title is a portmanteau of two words: Zaire, chosen as a symbol of anarchy after Wayne Coyne heard a radio news story about the political instability of the African nation, and eureka (literally: “I have found it”), an expression of joyous discovery.
Sadly, Manny announced today that the 5th Annual OhSociT Oregon Hill Soccer Invitational Tournament is cancelled.
“unfortunately due to a lack of team submissions, we have to cancel this year’s tournament. maybe next year! thanks to all who expressed interest and enthusiasm!”
