 Give A Day RVA Project
On Sept. 23, Chesterfield County participated in Give A Day RVA, a regional day of service organized by HandsOn Greater Richmond. The county hosted two projects at Pocahontas State Park. Twenty volunteers, including children with their parents, worked on the Swift Creek shoreline access. This pathway and shoreline was in need of major overhaul work to provide safe access for those with disabilities. Additional volunteers, including representatives from Fort Lee, worked on the Swift Creek mountain bike trails, specifically a “rock drop” feature that has been requested by the biking community for the last several weeks.  

Volunteers, along with Deputy County Administrator Sarah Snead and Parks and Recreation Director James Worsley, worked on two projects at Pocahontas State Park as part of Give A Day RVA on Sept. 23. 

Paint Out Pollution

Last month, volunteers spent the day working with Art on Wheels and the James River Association, stencil painting storm drains. The Paint Out Pollution project aims to increase awareness of stormwater pollution and celebrate the native plant and animal species that call the James River home. Local artists created stencils that were used to install art on storm drains at the Chester, LaPrade, Meadowdale and North Courthouse Road libraries. There are a number of different designs between the four locations. Be sure to check them out!

SwimRVA To Host 2020 U.S. Masters Swimming National Championship

Earlier this month, SwimRVA announced it will host the 2020 U.S. Masters Swimming Summer National Championship, after successfully winning a bid for the competition. An estimated 1,200 of the nation’s best adult swimmers will compete in the August 2020 event. This is the first time a U.S. Masters Swimming national competition will be held in Virginia. As part of the bid, SwimRVA installed new starting blocks, and it will add an above-ground warm-up pool during the competition. A 20-foot screen will also be installed outside the facility for spectators to watch the competition. Any money SwimRVA earns because of the competition will be used to further the nonprofit’s mission to teach the region to swim.
