Mark your calendar now for LRNow's Fall Festival on Saturday, October 12th. It is going to be a great day to learn more about the river and good stewardship, visit our many eco-vendors, enjoy some delicious local seafood, enjoy good music and have a great time.
The Fall Festival will be at the oceanfront, 31st Street on the beach and boardwalk, next to King Neptune and will be held in conjunction with Virginia Beach's Golden Age Anniversary Celebration. For more information, visit our Fall Fest website
or email Kris@LRNow.org.
Help with the LRNow Fall Festival, October 12th
Our Fall Fest beach party will feature eco-friendly craft vendors, fun and educational environmental displays, a children's treasure hunt and other beach games, a seafood market and delicious locally-sourced food. You will also have the opportunity to explore Lynnhaven wetlands during a guided walk.
In order for all of this to happen, we need help from lots of volunteers. The event would not be possible without the help of all of you. As an extra token of our appreciation, each volunteer will receive a free LRNow Volunteer T-shirt the day of the event.
We need volunteers in many different roles and several different time slots. To see the various opportunities and sign up to help, follow this link to Sign-up Genius.
Thanks for your help!
