First Bank contributes to Richmond Parks & Recreation

Written by: Susan Richwine  |  

Richmond, Indiana – First Bank Richmond announced today that they will donate $5,000 to Richmond Parks and Recreation during the month of March 2021. The funds will be applied to community programming and event sponsorships. Richmond Parks and Recreation’s mission is to provide for the positive development and well-being of the Richmond community through the provision of parks, greenways, trails and recreational programming and facilities while working in cooperation with other service providers and partners in the community to maximize all available resources. 

“The generosity of First Bank Community Foundation continues to shine with their parks support in 2021. Programming and Events are not a part of our annual budget; therefore, the park team works hard to find sponsors to make these opportunities a reality for our community. We want to thank First Bank Community Foundation for their willingness to support our Egg Hunt Drive Thru on 3/27 12-3, Music in the Park Series, Farmers Market, Food Truck Wednesday, and the Family Series.”

Denise Retz, Superintendent of Richmond Parks and Recreation

“First Bank is a proud supporter of our lovely parks system and all of the programing that it offers our community including:  bike/walking trails, playgrounds, municipal golf course, skate parks, pickleball courts.   Green spaces add to our quality of life especially adding the top-notch programing and events that they offer. We’re excited about sponsoring the drive-through Egg Hunt, Music in the Park, Food Truck Wednesday, and the Farmer’s Market.
