Spirit Ride Stops in Chesterfield

The American Towman Spirit Ride, a tow truck procession with a colorful ceremonial casket, made its way through Chesterfield Nov. 4, spreading the message “Slow Down, Move Over.” The casket pays tribute to tow operators and other first responders killed by passing vehicles while working on the roadside. The Spirit Ride started in New York on June 1 and is traveling across the nation over the course of 18 months with the goal of educating drivers about laws that require them to slow down and move over when they see an emergency vehicle like a police cruiser, fire truck, ambulance or tow truck.

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!
