Saturday Quaker Day festivities in Richmond Saturday | News, Sports, Jobs

AND THE WINNER IS… – The Richmond Community Historical Society’s August meeting included not only finalizing plans for the annual Quaker Day festivities scheduled for Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., but also drawing a Richmond pottery, which was won by Jennie Conklin of Steubenville. The museum’s last two summer open days allowed visitors to put their name on the drawing. With the pot are Sandy Judy, secretary of the historical society, and Phil Judy, president. — Janice Kiaski
