From the CEO

Ah, June. The beginning of summer. School is out. Vacations start. It’s wonderful that we live in an area that people from around the world want to come and visit.

I can’t believe it is May already! Though many of us begin thinking about summer vacations this time of year, things here at WHRO rarely slow down—even in the summer.

As I write this it is cold and rainy outside, but the arrival of April promises that spring is on its way. Spring is always an exciting time in Hampton Roads. It’s when we start to see flower and garden shows, art festivals, and craft fairs. WHRO has always been a big proponent of the arts in our community, and this month is no exception to our exciting lineup of arts coverage.

This month is Women’s History Month, a time to recall and celebrate the vital role of women in American history. For me, I celebrate the role of women in my life every day.

February is typically a month that offers great reasons to stay inside — cold temperatures, televised football games, and Valentine’s Day. For those days you choose to stay in and relax, we have some great programs planned.
