Reminder: Richmond Village AGM on Zoom Feb. 9

Pre-registration will be required as the Richmond Village Association will be holding its Annual General Meeting virtually via Zoom on Wed., Feb. 9 at 7:30 p.m.

In addition to electing the board of directors for the RVA, the meeting will include a presentation on all of the different things the RVA does in the community.

Although some of the RVA’s activities have been postponed during the pandemic, the association traditionally runs Richmond’s summer fun day, spring clean-up, community garage sale, walking club, a community bus for seniors operated by Rural Ottawa South Support Services (ROSSS), and a youth program that operates at the Richmond Community Centre.

In addition, the RVA holds the annual Richmond Santa Claus Parade. For the last two years, the RVA has worked with the Richmond Agriculture Society to create a drive-by event at the Richmond Fairgrounds.

Politically, the RVA is also involved in advocacy for the village, including being involved with the City of Ottawa’s official plan and master transportation plan.

To participate in the AGM, residents must pre-register by emailing jordan@richmondvillage .ca. The RVA will send a confirmation e-mail and a Zoom invite will be sent within one hour prior to the meeting start time.  In the meeting we will provide information on the RVA, what we do and ask residents to elect our new Board of Directors.
