Social Media Highlights

Logo: This Place MattersIf you're active on social media, you're likely to see a couple of campaigns being used to highlight our community. The America's Best Communities committee is encouraging the use of the hashtag #abc50 for any positive messages that you're sending out about Richmond and Wayne County. There is a contest for the most positive social media campaign within the larger prize. Richmond is currently a quarter finalist!

The recent Quality of Place conference kicked of the use of #ThisPlaceMatters locally. This national campaign from the National Trust for Historic Preservation serves to help people make the connection to their community and their neighborhood. The project is simple: Visit the Saving Places website to download and print a sign. Take photos with the sign at the places that matter most to you, and share the photos with others online with the hashtag #ThisPlaceMatters.
