Since safety measures have been put in place to stop the spread of the coronavirus, most events have been canceled. As restrictions begin to loosen, events will slowly be reinstated. Until that time, many organizations, art galleries and other businesses will continue using online platforms to get people together. To submit information about your organization’s free event, email Editor@RichmondSunsetNews.com. The information will also be shared on our website, RichmondSunsetNews.com.
