About 50 Richmond Heights residents, city employees and a good turnout from the police and fire departments came to The Heights Monday night to kick off the city’s centennial celebration year.
Mayor James Beck unveiled the centennial logo, and centennial badges were pinned on the fire and police personnel.
“I think it will be a bunch of fun this year,” Beck told Patch after the ceremony. “We’ve got so many things planned already and more to come.”
Beck is looking forward to more than just birthday parties in 2013, though.
“Some things are starting to come together with the Menards properties, so if that all comes together on top of it, it will be a heck of a nice year,” he said.
Some of the planned activities are listed below. See Centennial Celebration on the Richmond Heights website for more information on how you can participate or be involved.
