On Sunday, September 17, 2017, Citizens for Riverview Farm Park President Adrian Whitcomb spoke at both the 9:30 and 11:15 AM services at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Peninsula, 415 Young’s Mill Lane, Newport News. The Sermon Topic: “Together We Can Save the City Farm”
Videos from the sermon are at

As President of Citizens for Riverview Farm Park, Adrian Whitcomb is working with other citizens to build a broad base of public support to see that Riverview Farm Park becomes the park that it was designed to be twenty-six years ago, a park that includes all of the Newport News City Farm and the City owned portion of the Deep Creek Marina.  The sermon includes some of the things that he has learned from other citizen efforts that have influenced his approach.

Newport News native Adrian Whitcomb’s interest in photography began while he was part of a mission to renovate a church building in Chelsea, Massachusetts.  Having lived most of his life in crowded urban areas, Adrian has grown to appreciate the value of parks and open space, and his eleven-year connection with Citizens for a Fort Monroe National Park (Daily Press 2011 Citizens of the Year) continues even as he leads the City Farm effort.
