Regular meetings of the Richmond Pond Association have usually (but not always) been 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 for the 2020, 2021 & 2022 seasons were held via the Zoom online platform. Links to the RPA Zoom meetings were posted below and were communicated to RPA website subscribers by email as related plans were solidified. The annual RPA-sponsored all-town 2020 picnic at Camp Russell was canceled. Our 2021 annual meeting was held in-person at The Camp by Bousquet (now Camp Arrow Wood). The 2022 annual meeting/picnic was held at Camp Arrow Wood on August 23.
Meeting dates for 2023 will be Tuesdays as follows: 4/25, 5/23, 6/27, 7/25, and 8/22, 9/26, and 10/24. All except the annual meeting/picnic in July or August will be held at 7:00 pm, at least initially by Zoom.

Memorial Day weekend - Richmond Town Beach daytime vehicle access opens; no lifeguards.

June - Weed treatments hopefully beginning. If aquatic herbicide treatment of invasive weeds occurs, the pond will be closed for the one day of treatment, with no swimming, boating or fishing that day. There may be weed harvesting &/or hand-harvesting of weeds by contracted scuba divers - details will be provided as known.
June through October RPA meetings as listed above.
The RPA Annual meeting/picnic is likely to be held late afternoon at Camp Russell or Camp Arrow Wood on July 25 or August 22.
11/1 Winter lake level draw-down begins - to be reduced 1" or 2" per day until drawn down by 2 feet. (Refill to occur in early spring, so pond is back to normal level by April 1st.)
NOTES: Dates of pond weed treatments and events held at Richmond Pond and open to the public will be added to this calendar as they are scheduled, and the RPA is notified.
Please let us know about scheduled pond activities that are open to the public, so we can consider posting them here. See details at bottom of the Links page for submission details.
