Next Speaker Series: April 21st 


SAFE EVENT: April 29th

The last Bros United event until Fall has been rescheduled due to the weather. The new date is April 29th from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. and the new location is this field behind the Blacksburg Aquatic Center. Go to the Municipal Park Map below and they will be set up at Shelter 7 next to the tennis courts. GPS is a little strange for this location, so the address for the Aquatic Center is 625 Patrick Henry Drive. If you have any questions, please contact Chris West at
