Plaques Raising Funds For Legacy Pavilion

It takes a village……to raise a building.

Seated is Joyce Cook, a Richmond lifer who has been actively involved in the promotion of Richmond as a united community.  Joyce co-chaired, with Cydney Green, the 175th Richmond anniversary celebrations and has been a Committee member dedicated to bringing the Richmond Legacy Community Pavilion to fruition.

In partnership with the Richmond Agricultural Society, Richmond Village Association as well as generous contributions from many local businesses and residents we are close to our goal, but we need your support to reach that goal. 

Standing is Kerry Lee Cook, Daughter to Joyce, who is also supporting the Richmond Legacy Community Pavilion project through facilitation of the sale of commemorative plaques.  Plaques have been sold, nearing 200 to date, that will be mounted between the pillars around the periphery of the new Pavilion.  This will provide a lasting commemoration to the members of our community who have provided support to make this vision a reality.    

Plaques are inscribed with a personalized message that allows supporters to pay homage to themselves, or that of their loved ones within our village and beyond.  Each 3” x 6” stainless steel commemorative plaque, as seen in the photo, sells for $150, details and ordering can be done on-line at or in person at the Royal LePage Office, 3441 McBean Street, Richmond, ON. 

The proceeds from the sale of these plaques goes directly towards the Pavilion construction. 

Don’t miss your opportunity to support the raising of this Pavilion as well as leaving a legacy of yourself, your family or loved ones for the future of our community.
