On Wednesday, August 23, The New Richmond Heritage Center held their annual membership and appreciation dinner to say thanks to members and volunteers.
Paul Mayer, the board president, kicked off the proceedings with a heartfelt thank you from the Heritage Board to the room of over 100 members and volunteers. “In June of 1899, when the cyclone devastated New Richmond, this community had two choices,” Mayer said. “They could pick up and move or they could rebuild. They chose to rebuild. That’s who we are. The volunteers and members in this room understand the importance of that legacy and are willing to donate their time, talent and treasure to make sure that is carried forward. For that, we are all grateful.”
After incoming board members were elected, each member shared committee achievements for the past year and how all the support and participation from the community had made an impact.
Many thanks go to those individuals and businesses who contributed to the event. Dessert Sponsor – Culver’s
