Update on WNRN  on the WNRN translator in Richmond/Midlothian: 

A message from General Manager, Mark Keefe:

Richmond, we can’t thank you enough for your patience with our signal in your neighborhood. We have been working hard to do all we can to be ready to make the technical adjustments that we are hopeful will get us back on the air. We’ve purchased new equipment, completed all the paperwork and are just waiting for the final notice from the company that owns the tower our antenna is housed on. We have a tower crew on standby, so the moment we get the green light we’re ready to move. We’ll send all of our members a notice once we’re back up, so cross your fingers. We’re hoping it’s very soon.

If you haven’t become a member yet, please take a moment and make a contribution. You’re helping to fund everything you enjoy about WNRN and enabling us to make improvements in all areas of our operation.
Thanks again, and stay tuned.

Become a Master Gardener!  Join us for the fall info sessions on how to apply for the 2015 volunteer training course.

 

The Master Gardener program application process for 2015 begins now and the Albemarle/Charlottesville Virginia Cooperative Extension office invites you to attend one of the two information sessions on how you can become a local Master Gardener.

 

Master Gardeners are members of the local community who take an active interest in their surroundings and the quality of life affected by our landscapes, local parks and trails, water quality, and more.  After attending approximately 70 hours of horticulture training, Master Gardeners volunteer their time and expertise to encourage and promote environmentally sound horticultural practices in the community through outreach education, ultimately making our community a better place to be.

 

Volunteer activities include hosting workshops, youth development through gardening, horticultural therapy projects, giving lectures, educational demonstration gardens, answering the community’s gardening questions, and more.  Being a Master Gardener is a great way to develop your skills and give back.

 

To find out more about the Master Gardener Program and how to apply, come to an information session at the 5th Street County Office Building October 27th at 1:00pm or the Central Library McIntire Room November 14th at 1:00pm. Or visit us online.
