Run for Robious 5K & Fun Run


Robious 5K & Fun RunThe Run for Robious 5K & Fun Run planned for Saturday, May 7 has been CANCELLED!

With so much going on this Spring, registrations for the Run for Robious have been limited. That prevented the event organizers from being able to host the type of event that the Robious Corridor has come to expect.

The organizers will take this as an opportunity to revisit the program and improve upon it for the future for the wonderful running community at Robious Elementary School.

Whistlestop Carnival

Robious Elementary School

An awesome time was had by all who attended Robious Elementary Whistlestop Carnival recently.  The event was an enormous success again this year, thanks to the hard work of some amazing volunteers.
The Whistlestop committee, led this year by Melissa Gilmore and Ali Fannon, were responsible for planning and executing a wonderful day for those in attendance and it is safe to say that the entire committee hit their mark.
In the video below, Mrs. Hobson, the principal at Robious Elementary. braved the weather to take a seat in the dunking booth.  More than enough to put smiles on the faces of many of the students.







The 6th Annual Virginia Hops and Barley Festival

Robious CorridorOur Virginia Hops and Barley Festival Ticket Contest ended at High Noon yesterday.  As promised, we didn’t have just one winner, we had TWO winners. 

Trisha Kipps and Liz Dorneman, long time Robious Corridor readers and followers of the Robious Corridor Facebook page will be getting two tickets each to attend the 6th Annual Virginia Hops and Barley Festival this Saturday at Historic Malvern Estate. 

To win all that they had to do was to post “I want to go to the Virginia Hops and Barley Festival!” on the Robious Corridor Facebook page.  That is all that Trisha and Liz had to do to win.

You can expect another contest from Robious Corridor coming up shortly and we will make sure that is just as easy to win.

Emily Morrissey & REACHcycles – In the Spotlight

Emily MorrisseyYou may remember a few weeks back, the last time that Emily Morrissey was in the Spotlight.  Emily was hoping to find a custom made bike that she could ride.

Sometimes, all that you need is a little bit of hope.  Emily received her custom made bicycle recently thanks to the kindness of REACHcycles Richmond chapter.  The chapter’s founder, James Howard, has been a champion for providing custom made bikes for those with special needs.  “There’s a huge gap,” Howard said. “There’s a real need out there for this.”

So, with just a little bit of hope, the efforts of her parents, an article in Robious Corridor Online, and the help of REACHcycles, we are happy to report that Emily got her bike.

Helping those in the community is what we do.  That is how we roll in the Robious Corridor and at Robious Corridor Online.  And because they roll like we do in the Robious Corridor…

Emily Morrissey & REACHcycles…are in the Winterfield Veterinary Hospital Spotlight!

Fantastic Sams unveils Summer Specials

Fantastic SamsTom Scott, the new owner of Fantastic Sams at Belvedere and Robious, is excited to be celebrating his first year at the helm.  Scott is so excited, in fact, that he came up with a special for each day of the week for Robious Corridor readers.  You can check them out for yourselves below.

Fantastic Sams “A Team” of stylists, Megan, Mary, and Maxine told Scott that he needed to do more.  So, Tom came up with some additional specials.

Fantastic Sams at Belvedere is extending their Women’s Day specials to Sundays. Now, every Sunday and Monday is women’s day, featuring all over color for $39.95, partial highlights for $34.95 and women’s cuts for only $14. That is not a typo.  That is fourteen dollars.  With a price that low, it may cost you more to drive to get your hair done that it does to get your hair done.

That is not all.  To celebrate Mother’s Day when you get your son or daughter’s haircut, you will receive a $10 certificate for yourself.  Fantastic Sams at Belvedere will give each mother a $10 certificate good for a women’s color service or cut & style when you get your child’s hair cut.  The Mother’s Day offer is good through the end of May!

No Appointment is necessary, walk in clients are always welcomed with open arms.  You can tell Tom, Megan, Mary or Maxine that you found out about their special offers at Robious Corridor Online.  Or not.  They will honor the special pricing no matter what!  That is why we are so proud to have Fantastic Sams as a community partner.  The do all that they can to help anyone who lives, learns, or works in the Robious Corridor!
