Letter: I love living in Richmond

Richmond News

Dear Editor,

On July 6, I attended the Richmond Community Day event held at the Richmond Olympic Oval with my family and friends.

I am lucky to live in a wonderful city that offers many opportunities for all of us to get together – to communicate, to connect and to contribute.

At this event, I did fun things such as holding a rat from Mike’s Critters’ booth and talking with an RCMP officer. As a bonus, I even got to take a picture with Mayor Malcolm Brodie.

The many volunteers and community leaders at this event have inspired me.

As a Richmondite, I, too, want to make a difference by helping out around our city. After all, we ALL live in this beautiful city where diversity is a human right.
