Richmond Hill to Celebrate its 50th Birthday

On March 3, 1962 the “Duke of Earl” by Gene Chandler was number one in the pop music charts; the average cost of a new home was $5,556; the average cost of a new car was $3,125; the price of gas was 28 cents per gallon and the City of Richmond Hill had just been incorporated. 

Oh how times have changed!

The current number one song on the pop charts is “We Found Love” by Rihanna; the average cost of a new home is $178,050; the average cost of a new car is $29,217; the average cost of gas is $3.39 per gallon and the City of Richmond Hill is preparing to celebrate its 50th anniversary.

On Saturday, March 3, the city will hold a military appreciation and birthday bash picnic in J.F. Gregory Park. The events include family fishing, a citywide garage sale, free food and drinks, live entertainment featuring the Atlanta-based band Heart and Soul, kid’s inflatables and fireworks. Also featured will be a military instrumental quartet, a wreath laying at the Veterans Monument, a 21-gun salute and displays of equipment from the City and Fort Stewart.

On Thursday, March 8th, the City and Richmond Hill City Center will play host to an invitation only reception that will be a way to share the celebration with community leaders from the Coastal region.  The Richmond Hill Historical Society and Arts on the Coast will share a Richmond Hill photo and art collection and historian Buddy Sullivan will speak on Richmond Hill’s history. Mayor Harold Fowler will present awards to the winners of an essay and art contest and the contents of the 25th anniversary time capsule will be on display.

On Saturday, March 10, the weeklong festivities will culminate with another free picnic in the park featuring food and drinks, family fishing, entertainment by “The Tams,” a Hometown Market, kid’s inflatable fun, local entertainment and the burial of the 50th time capsule.
