Additionally, the  Annual Meeting  of the Richmond  Historical  Society was held Thursday Evening, June 21, 2018.  

The purpose of the meeting was for the election of new officers and  board members for the coming year.  Reports of activity for this past year, along with  planning for upcoming events, were discussed.  We welcome new members and all ideas.

Also, the Memorial Day theme was used in the display case at the Bell School during the month of May.


This has now been replaced with cemetery documents to reflect the theme of the book signing:
