Pine Street Baptist Partners With Grace Baptist To Serve Homeless Breakfast On Thursday

From Grace Baptist Church (Dover Road):

On March 9, Grace Baptist Church will be partnering with Oregon Hill Baptist Center to provide and serve breakfast to 40-60 people as part of the Center’s homeless ministry. Grace had this opportunity last October and it was a most rewarding experience. There is a signup sheet on the table outside the office to volunteer to provide food for the breakfast and/or serve the meal. In addition to the breakfast, Grace will be providing snack bags for the guests to take with them as they leave the Center. Please consider making a contribution by check or online (designate “Snack Bags”) to help cover the cost of items for the bags. Your contributions of food, time and monetary gifts will be appreciated.

Part Of Oregon Hill Votes Tomorrow In Special Election

There is a special election for the 71st District Virginia House of Delegates tomorrow, February 7.

It looks like Oregon Hill voters who reside north of the Expressway are part of the 71st District and can vote in the election tomorrow. This boundary is confusing and aggravating.

There are three candidates running to replace Jennifer McClellan (recently elected to VA Senate):

John Barclay – Libertarian candidate, public school teacher at Franklin Military.

Jeff Bourne – Democrat, 3rd District School Board Representative, Deputy Attorney General at Virginia Office of the Attorney General.

Regie Ford – Independent, Air Force veteran, past President of the Richmond Crusade for Voters.
