Our first Adopt-A-Spot event of 2020 will be this Saturday, February 22nd at 9:00 am.

With all the inclement weather we are currently experiencing this week, it may be hard to realize that the weather forecast for this Saturday will be a nice day.  Perfect timing for our first Adopt-A-Spot event of 2020.

Volunteers are needed to help clean up litter from around the Norfolk Fitness and Wellness Center grounds. Tools and supplies will be provided but it will be helpful to dress appropriately and wear waterproof boots.  Please join us to help preserve this treasured green space.

Virginia Primary Election Today

VA 7th District Canidates

Voters in parts of Hampton Roads and the Eastern Shore will go to the polls Tuesday, June 11, to select Democratic and Republican candidates for November’s General Assembly elections.  Lynwood Lewis and Willie Randall are candidates for the Democratic nomination in Virginia’s 6th Senate District.  There is no Republican nominee running for this seat.

Since Virginia doesn’t register voters by party, anyone can vote in any primary. But you’ll have to choose the Democratic or Republican ballot — you can’t vote in both. Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.  Most Wards Corner Civic League residents vote at Granby Elementary.  Residents on the west & north side of Nesbitt Drive vote at Titustown Recreation Center.
