NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
- July 4th Celebration – Make plans to join us Saturday, July 4th at 6:00 pm for the St. Richard Independence Day Celebration. Invite your neighbors, friends, and family. You will only need to bring a comfortable lawn chair; but if you prefer, come early and pitch-your-tent along the football infield. The Knight of Columbus will have hamburgers, hotdogs, cotton candy, snow cones, and various soft drinks for sale. You will only need to bring your appetite and a favorite dessert to share. Bring your soccer ball, because there is lots of room for the children to play. Taylor’s Ponies will be back. Music and fun for the entire family. No celebration can be complete without a fireworks extravaganza! Bobby Moorehead and his pyrotechnic crew promises to put on a outstanding display!
