Since 1980, resident volunteers have worked hard to put the now multi-day together for all to enjoy. To recognize that hard work, the Richfield City Council presented the celebration’s committee with a certificate of appreciation.
“This is not a city sponsored event,” Mayor Debbie Goettel said as she presented the certificate. “This is all done by volunteers.”
This year’s event begins Saturday, June 30 with the traditional carnival and ends *Thursday, July 5 with the Richfield Ambassador and Junior Ambassador Coronation.
Committee Vice President Andrew Seffrood and President Katie Robison accepted the certificate Tuesday night.
“We have a lot of people who spend a lot of time, a lot of energy and a lot of their own money to do this, so we appreciate this recognition,” Seffrood said. “We really appreciate this recognition.”
