Richmond mayor invites community to celebrate city’s 111th birthday


Richmond Mayor Tom Butt is inviting the community to sample some Richmond wine and cider during a celebration on Friday of the city’s 111th birthday.

“On this Friday, August 5, 2016, Richmond will be 111 years old,” the mayor posted in his e-forum on Monday. “Meet me at the Riggers Loft and we’ll sample some Richmond wine and cider, tell some stories and enjoy some music.”

The Riggers Loft Wine Company is located at 1325 Canal Blvd., right next to the Red Oak Victory.

More details about the event, which will include Richmond-themed door prizes and more, are forthcoming, so stay tuned, the mayor says.
