“This city is what it is because our citizens are what they are.” - Plato
I’d like to think that Plato could have just as easily been writing about Richmond Heights.
Our city is what it is because of its several generations of people who dreamed dreams and then worked hard to make those dreams reality. They worked for the good of their families, neighbors and friends – and they worked for the good of the community overall. They shared their skills, talents, and time until ultimately the City of Richmond Heights grew, evolved and emerged as one of the greatest communities in the State of Missouri.
Our city is what it is because of generations of people like you who have come together to make our community great today while laying a foundation for a greater tomorrow.
Throughout 2013, the
City of Richmond Heights will be celebrating its centennial anniversary.
A booklet highlighting our guest speakers, special programs and
celebratory events is now available from stands at City Hall, THE
HEIGHTS and the Richmond Heights Memorial Library. Or you can download a copy.
The inaugural ArtFest, which is part of the City of Richmond Heights centennial celebration, is bringing a juried art show and a fine craft fair to the city 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 18.
Featured artists include oil painter and muralist Julie Wiegand, whose pieces focus on the lush countryside; Kathleen Barnes, whose acrylic paintings focus on her passion for nature; and Newberry Furniture, which designs and creates hand-crafted furniture and kitchen tools from raw lumber.
The artwork of about 30 local artists will be on sale and other cultural activities will be available during the festival.
There will be free yoga and pilates classes, live music, healthy cooking demonstrations, a food vendor, wine tastings and a children’s art station.
The event will take place at the City green space on Lindbergh Drive and South Big Bend Boulevard.
