HRACA, as part of this year's Holmes Run Acres 70th Anniversary celebrations, presents a monthly storytelling event for children in Luria Park. Our first one in April was a big success, and we look forward to our May session on this coming Saturday morning.
Our May author is Megan Wagner Lloyd. She is the author of the kids’ graphic novel Allergic, co-created with illustrator Michelle Mee Nutter. She’s also the author of the picture books Finding Wild and Fort-Building Time, illustrated by Abigail Halpin, Building Books, illustrated by Brianne Farley, and Paper Mice, illustrated by Phoebe Wahl. She lives with her family in the Washington DC area.
Megan will be reading her picture book Finding Wild, and if there are any older kids who would like to gather afterwards, she has offered to read excerpts from her middle grade graphic novel, Allergic, as well.
There will also, once again, be a craft activity.
Come join us with your children for an enjoyable story hour!
HRA House and Garden Tour - New date
The Holmes Run Acres Civic Association presents:
The 2022 House and Garden Tour
Postponed to Saturday, May 21 from 11:00am to 3:00 pm
The Holmes Run Acres Civic Association is excited to bring you the semi-annual HRA House and Garden Tour. This year is extra special because we are celebrating the 70th Anniversary of Holmes Run Acres. We are all looking forward to exploring the endless possibilities that characterize our unique mid-century architecture and wonderfully wooded environment.
Please plan to take the tour to see some of the great houses and gardens in our neighborhood. Begin the Tour at Woodburn School to get a list of houses. As you visit these houses, look for features that demonstrate our 70 years of history. Also look for updates that prove our houses can be adapted to our changing needs. Look for garden features that reveal a gardener’s touch as well as a responsiveness to nature.
It has long been a tradition to include “works in progress” on the HRA House and Garden Tour. This year we also want to emphasize houses that have Curb Appeal. If you would like to show your home and/or garden on the tour, please contact us ASAP.
We hope you enjoy the tour!
