Hi, <<First Name>>!

Welcome back to the Richmond Parks & Recreation weekly newsletter! 

Classrooms are filling up with enthusiastic learners of all ages and the nights are cooling off thanks to Autumn's refreshing breeze.

With the changing of seasons comes several opportunities to reconnect with nature, move with friends and family, and lend a helping hand to make our community even more vibrant!

We hope you enjoy these brief glimpses into our Fall programming.

Save the Date!

This October, the Richmond Farmers Market is hosting a Farm to Fork Dinner!

Reconnect with nature and engage your senses during this one-of-a-kind dining experience. Before dinner, you'll be invited to participate in a guided hike that will engage a variety of your senses. Throughout the evening, there will be live music that will captivate your ears, a silent auction featuring local artwork that will fascinate your eyes, and, of course, a multi-course harvest dinner prepared by Chef Adria Morken with The Cater Box Food Service that will tickle your taste and smell.

This unique dinner is a fundraiser for the Richmond Farmers Market and all proceeds go toward the programming and marketing budget for the Market while helps to provide live music, yoga classes, cooking demonstrations, children's activities, community festivals, and so much more!

The dinner will take place on October 15 at the Springwood Park Chapel. 
Ticket information will be released soon, so stay tuned for more details!
