community EVENTS

Our "Hanover Community Calendar" is populated with events submitted by you! This calendar highlights non-profit, special and neighbor events all across our area.

Hosting an event? If you, or an area organization, is hosting an event let us know. Event postings should follow these parameters:

    1. The event must take place within Hanover County OR be hosted by a Hanover Chamber member
    2. The event must be community focused and intended to provide support, fundraising, care or fun to area residents and chamber members
    3. Note this calendar is not intended for reoccurring seminars or group meetings, sales events or workshops given by individual for-profit companies

    When you submit events, please be sure to include the date, time, location/address, web link and an image or logo. Community calendar postings that fit our criteria will be made publicly visible on our website and in newsletters within a week of being sent to us; send events 4-6 weeks in advance for maximum exposure. Send events to kelley@hanoverchamberva.com.

      Introducing a new Hanover “Tools 4 Teachers” Program, a School and Community Partnership. The program vision is to deliver supplemental items to middle teachers for use in their classrooms and with students.

      These supplies are free to middle teachers who submit a request and are made possible by community partnership donations. Community volunteers will deliver the supplies requested to the front office at the teacher’s school. If you are interested in supporting this effort by volunteering, donating items, being a sponsor or giving a financial gift please reach out to the Hanover Department of Community Resources by calling 804-365-4300 or emailing volunteer@hanovercounty.gov.
