We’ll be opening our first Richmond location late this summer. In addition to working hard on our new home away from home, we’ve been meeting with our neighbors and business and community leaders to learn as much as we can about Richmond and where Chesapeake Bank can get involved and make a positive impact.
We’re excited about our first community event in Richmond, the unveiling of the “It’s All About Community” Westhampton mural on March 18 at 9 a.m. at 5501 Patterson Avenue in Richmond. We’ll have coffee and hot chocolate from Boyer’s Ice Cream and Coffee and a variety of treats from Westhampton Bakery, two of our neighbors, and guests can register to win a gift basket filled with Richmond favorites from RVA to Go. Please RSVP here if interested in attending.
The mural was painted by Richmond muralist and VCU graduate Emily Herr. It will spruce up the fencing on our construction site while our building is being completed, and we hope to find a permanent home for the mural when construction is completed.
Check back next week on the blog for a recap of the event and a look at the mural.
