CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WWBT) - Pineapples, once a symbol of hospitality for early colonizers, have inspired an outreach project for the Chesterfield Historical Society of Virginia, or CHSV.

The “Pineapple Project” will provide activities for locals and increase awareness about Chesterfield’s historical sites.

CHSV is partnering with Chesterfield’s parks and recreation department to hold a craft activity on Thursday, May 13.

Children in grades 1-3 will create a paper pineapple at the Magnolia Grange House Museum at 10020 Iron Bridge Road in Chesterfield.

Each child must be accompanied by an adult, and reservations are required.

For more details or to sign up, call 804-748-1498. Participants are asked to register one week in advance.
