In less pleasant news, noise issues continue to be a problem.
Neighbors complained of multiple fireworks going off at different intervals last night.
While this morning, neighbors were woken up by loud Top 40 music from a sound system at the VCU athletic fields over on Linden and W. Cary that could be heard as far south as the 600 blocks of S.Cherry and Laurel.
From one neighbor:
Sunday morning at 8:15 am, I was awakened by loud music blaring through my closed window. I finally went to the vcu athletic field at 9 and they were blaring loud as crap hip hop music. A Sunday morning! This has to stop.
The music is still blaring. It’s two hours straight now. Called vcu twice, met with vcu police once and an officer called me back and apologized for the noise. He said they brought their own sound system and that he has had multiple complaints every time this lacrosse group uses the field.
Many people all across RVA volunteered for Hands Across Richmond Day yesterday, a very beautiful fall day in the Commonwealth.
In these photos, volunteers, mostly VCU college students, helped buttress a pedestrian walkway over on Belle Island.
These flowers were donated from leftovers from the Folk Festival’s VIP tent and planted by neighborhood volunteers.
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.

In recycling news, the City of Toronto has had some success developing raccoon proof composting bins.
