Community Conversation - Discussing Up and Down the Boulevard


Published on

Join us as we collaborate with Richmond Magazine, TMI Consulting Inc., the Future of Richmond's Past and local restaurants to offer our next series of "Community Conversations." For this final conversation, participants will discuss the changes and major events that occurred along the Boulevard with Tina Eshleman, managing editor of Richmond Magazine and Arts and Entertainment section editor.

This will be the fourth iteration of the "Community Conversations" series. The purpose of the series is to engage the community in a dialogue about the region’s past and how that past can positively shape our collective future. The more people that join in the conversation, the more productive our efforts become, and the easier it will be for everyone to see ourselves in the history of the region.

Free and open to the public.
For information, call (804) 649-0711 ext. 322
