    May 5, 2018 - International Festival - The annual International Festival was a huge success again this year! Communications & Marketing was on hand with the Love Lynchburg tent and a world map where attendees could place a pin on a location they (or their family) were from before coming to Lynchburg. Additionally, the chalkboards were on display for attendees to write their response to "Why do you LOVE LYNCHBURG?" 
    April 21, 2018 - Love Where You Live - Annual litter pick up and this year, tornado cleanup.
