Utility Holds 4th Annual Customer Appreciation Picnic

New Richmond Citizens Enjoying the Day!

It was a clear and sunny day; perfect for a customer appreciation picnic at Mary Park. More than 500 people showed up at Mary Park for a nice meal of brats, beans, and beverages.

The big event was made possible by cooperation of staff from the city utility departments, including the electric, water, and wastewater crews. Everybody seemed to enjoy themselves and had a good time.
