We Are Richmond County

We Are Richmond County

I am a child and a parent.

I am the stranger you pass in the grocery store and the friend you catch up with on aisle six.

I am the fast food worker in the drive thru and the nurse checking your vitals to ensure your health.


I am you.

I am Richmond County.


Without you, I am just a place.

A simple place with roads, stoplights, and buildings.

What makes me unique is you.


The people that work diligently with most of their work going unnoticed.

No matter how small your contribution may seem, you are still part of the bigger picture.


Despite the differences we have, we come together to make me what I am.

Working hard everyday to make me beautiful and prosperous.

No, I am not perfect, but you are striving for my perfection.


We are different.

We are committed.

We are hardworking.


We are Richmond County.
