We have a lot going on in June! The new Richmond Historic Cemetery Book is completed. A limited number of books, based on the orders taken, were printed.
According to Dory Wagner, member of the Historic Cemetery Commission,” Lorraine Arruda’s research and headstone recordings are flawless perfection. Laurie has also included some genealogy in the book.
On Saturday, June 16, 2008, at 1:00-3:00 pm, Laurie will be at the Bell School, for a book signing.
For anyone not familiar with the location, the School is next door to the Richmond Town Hall.
*Note: On September 16, 2018, 2-4 pm, Laurie is due to speak about the book, at the Chapel at Wood River.
Additionally, the Annual Meeting of the Richmond Historical Society will be held Thursday Evening, June 21, 2018. This will take place in the Meeting Room of the Clark Library, Carolina, RI.
The purpose of the meeting is 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, will be discussed. We welcome new members and all ideas.
If you are interested in joining us, please print out and complete the membership application.
Also, the Memorial Day theme has been used in the display case at the Bell School. We hope to increase the docents in order to open the school on a more regular basis.
