4-5-18: The Richmond Parade & Fireworks Committee held a public planning meeting
a couple of weeks ago. The meeting was well attended and it seems like there is enough
interest and volunteers to continue with the July 4th celebration in Richmond this
However, we still need many more volunteers to get involved and make a commitment
to help out. Whether you would like to help out on the day of the event, or if you
are able to help with planning ahead of time, any level of participation and time
commitment is welcome.
For those of you who are interested but were unable to attend the meeting, we have
set up an online signup form. If you have something to suggest or offer that isn't
on the sign up form, please add it in the comments. Please share the form with anyone
you think might be interested in helping out: https://goo.gl/forms/30r5JvozAlVBJ5ex1
