Historic Richmond Association is gearing up for the fall season and there are many activities planned. So pull out your calendars and save the dates, because you do not want to miss these exciting happenings.
Beginning Tuesday, September 13, and every Tuesday following through October, Historic Richmond Association will be offering a different class each week, from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m., at Morton Street Gallery on Morton Street, Richmond.
“The first Tuesday, September 13, we will host a class for those interested in learning to write press releases and news articles. The president of Historic Richmond who has been writing for 31 years and writes for the Houston Chronicle will be teaching the class,” said Roselyn Pasak, vice president, Historic Richmond Association.
The second week, September 20, a local expert investor will discuss investing during the turmoil and if gold is a hot investment or not. Blake Greer of Greer Wealth Management, who offices onMorton Street, will be the guest speaker.
Other classes that will be held will be on safety from a member of the police department, historical topics from the Fort Bend Museum and the owners of the Queen Theatre will be speaking on why acting classes are great for kids. There will be many other exciting classes as well, which will be announced in the paper and the dates draw closer.
“These classes are free to the public and will thrill, entertain and teach interesting topics. So we really hope the community will join us. Also, come early and have dinner at one of the local restaurants, Sandy McGees or the Italian Maid,” Pasak said.
There are also some tentative plans being developed for Halloween on Morton Street, so watch the paper for more details, which should be coming soon.
Also, on December 3, vendors, Santa, Santa’s elves and so much will fill Morton Street in Downtown Historic Richmond for the 10th annual Miracle on Morton Street. There will be live music all day, entertainment and strolling carolers. This is one event you and your family do not want to miss, according to Pasak.
“We are still accepting vendors and sponsors for Miracle on Morton Street, so be sure and call 832.752.9645 if you are interested,” Pasak said.
The really big news is that next year, 2012, Richmond will be celebrating its 175th birthday and the Historic Richmond Association and the City of Richmond are planning something really big.
“We mean big. We are planning a party like Richmond folks have never seen before. There will be music, entertainers, special guests, lots of food and so much more, so watch the paper for more details or visit Historic Richmond Associations website, www.historicrichmond.org,” Pasak said.
So pull out your calendars and start saving the dates, because there are many other events that will be announced soon and there is a lot going on behind the scenes.
“If anyone in the community would like to join Historic Richmond Association or be on our email list for different receptions and happenings, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and provide your contact information,” Pasak said.
“We plan to make Richmond the Jewel of Fort Bend County since it is the county seat and there is so much to be proud of here. We hope to bring more stores and businesses to the area, renovate parts of the Historic area and so much more. For example, we would really like to renovate the old hotel above Treasure Hunters into a bed and breakfast or day spa. The hotel is such a historical building that we really hope to make it operational in some way by working with local businesses to make this happen. Again, we simply have a lot of plans and we hope you will join us,” said Rebecca Maitland, president, Historic Richmond Association.
