Richmond named an All-America City

Thanks to the hard work of a team of local youth, Richmond was awarded the title of "All-America City" by the National Civic League on June 19, 2009.  The City celebrated the award and thanked the team for all their hard work with a parade, then free cake and ice cream at the City Building.  This is the second time the City of Richmond has received this designation.  The first time was in 1987.
