Hello Richmond Emmaus Community,
The Richmond Emmaus Board of Directors would like to take this time to wish you belated Happy New Year wishes and let you know what’s happening as we enter 2023.
As the New Year has approached us, we would like to thank these Board Members that have completed their terms of service, Lori Alford, Cody Dedmon, Chris Grogan, and Anne Moseley. Thank you to for dedicating your time and serving on the Board.
We would like to welcome these new Board Members and are excited to serve with you this upcoming year: Sue Gattis, Gaston Andrews. Steve Snodgrass, Ned Hood.
We would also like to thank Sandy Livingston for leading our Board and Community in 2022 and pointing our focus toward renewal, as we continued to navigate COVID issues early in the year and accomplished our main goal of resuming our Walk weekends this past October with the men’s walk R135 and the women’s walk R136. The first men’s and women’s walks in 2 1⁄2 years.
As we enter 2023, the Board and Community should look to continue the momentum and stay the course created last year by trusting God to guide us as we as a community continue to move forward.
