With the 176th Richmond Fair now behind us, the organizing committee for the Richmond Legacy Community Pavilion is strengthening its fundraising efforts.
The core of the Richmond Legacy Association is the dedicated group of volunteers who worked tirelessly to organize the Richmond 200 celebration in 2018. In conjunction with the Richmond Agricultural Society, the Richmond Legacy Association has launched a number of efforts and events to support the Richmond Community Pavilion.
The Pavilion, which will be located in the Richmond Fairgrounds, will be a beautiful and unique structure for the community to gather for both public and private events – weddings, concerts, cultural performances etc.
The Richmond Legacy Association’s goal is to reach $350,000 through donations, sales of commemorative plaques, business sponsorships, government grants and in kind services. To date, they have achieved 30 per cent of their goal.
Recently, the association sent a mailer to 75 businesses in Richmond looking for support.
Groundbreaking for the pavilion is expected to take place in 2022.
