If you have ever stressed about how to entertain your young ones, Richmond has plenty of great places to learn and have fun.
Virginia Fine Arts Museum

Introduce your little Richmonders to the wonderful world of art – pick up a Family Fun Guide from the Visitors Services desk and encourage them to try their hands at the museum’s art scavenger hunt. 200 N.

What was life like in the rural South in the mid-19th century? Find out at Meadow Farm Museum in Henrico County. Costumed interpreters introduce kids to life on the farm: Visit with a blacksmith in his forge or a doctor in his office. The museum is part of Crump Park which has plenty of open space, walking trails and a great playground so bring a picnic and enjoy a day in the country. 3400 Mountain Road, Glen Allen

The largest ever private-sector donation to the Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia lifts its campaign to renovate and move to the historic Leigh Street Armory above the $3 million mark. M. H. West & Co., Inc. supports this kind of effort to fund a great Richmond project.
The $500,000 pledge from Dominion Resources is notable not only because of its size but also because it can be used to leverage other grants, said Stacy L. Burrs, chairman of the museum.
“Very often the contributions we receive are challenge grants,” Burrs said. “A gift of this size not only leverages the challenge grants, but it also leverages support down the road from other major corporations. Everyone knows that Dominion is a leader in the community. They’ve vetted the project and see it as worthy of this kind of contribution. It means we’ve done something right. We’ve made a good start.” (more…)

Q: Why do you work with students in the School of Business?
A: My brother has a graduate degree from VSU and I got to know Eddie Moore who was from Philadelphia and then I got to know Keith Miller and his work for Go Red for Women. He and VSU were really the first school in the area to support Go Red for Women. Also, because of Mirta for what she has done as a minority at a minority institution. As a business person, I have been very impressed with what has been done. I have been around VSU and have been hearing about VSU for a long time so I guess it was natural for me to get involved and to support the Reginald F. Lewis School of Business.
Q: Identify your favorite quote.
