Regular meetings of the Richmond Pond Association are usually (but not always) on the 4th Tuesday of the month, usually at Richmond Town Hall. Meetings are usually scheduled April through October, and additionally only as needed. Special Note - Because of measures implemented to reduce the spread of Coronavirus, RPA meetings initially scheduled for spring and early summer 2020 in Richmond Town Hall are instead taking place via the Zoom online platform. Links to the RPA Zoom meetings will be posted below and will be communicated to RPA website subscribers by email as related plans are solidified. The annual RPA-sponsored all-town picnic at Camp Russell has been canceled, as have all summer 2020 bass tournaments & kayak races.
