National Grandparents Day Sept. 11
1st Sunday after Labor Day
Forget me not Marian McQuade

National Grandparents Day is Sept. 11, 2016.  Marian McQuade, the founder of Grandparents Day, lived and raised her family in Richwood for 30 years.  

To honor this Richwood hero, the Richwood Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring an essay contest: flowers   “Why Grandparents Are Important.”  Winners will be announced on Sept. 11 at the celebration in the Sterling Spencer Sculpture Garden, Richwood.  There will be food, music by the band, Common Houses, gifts for the grandparents, prizes for the essay winners, a Silent Auction, and lots of craft vendors selling their items.
