President’s Club Kick-off Celebration Rescheduled for Sept. 28

HAMLET – The grand celebration and membership drive kick-off for the President’s Club of Richmond Community College will now be held Sept 28 starting at 6 p.m. at the Cole Auditorium.


The President’s Club is an exclusive club for alumni and other individuals interested in supporting and connecting with RichmondCC.

Originally scheduled for next week, the event had to be rescheduled due to extensive water damage to the auditorium when a pipe burst in the facility earlier this summer.

Sponsored by the RichmondCC Foundation, the President’s Club Kick-off Celebration will include a free concert featuring the tribute band Classic Journey Live, as well as free ice cream provided by Twisted Treats and campus tours.

“It’s unfortunate that we had to reschedule, but the band was able to accommodate us, so we look forward to being able to offer a great night of entertainment and the opportunity for people to be the first members of the President’s Club,” said Dr. Hal Shuler, Associate Vice President of Development.

The free concert at the Cole Auditorium features a band that describes itself as providing “the nation’s most authentic Journey experience,” from the clothes to the hairstyles, lights, musical gear, stage presence and vocals.

“The President’s Club is for all alumni of RichmondCC, as well as people who want to be a part of RichmondCC and all the great opportunities the college has to offer,” Shuler said. “This will be a way for the thousands of individuals who have realized their educational goals through the college to show their pride in RichmondCC and allow us to strengthen our relationship with alumni and other members of the community.”


The kick off celebration for the President’s Club is free and open to the public. People will have an opportunity to subscribe to the club the night of the celebration, with free prizes going to the first 100 to sign up.

Some of the benefits of joining the President’s Club include scholarships, gift certificates for the DeWitt Performing Art Series shows, discounts at the college bookstore and a discount on Anniversary Gala tickets.

“Our alumni and community members are valued members of our college family and integral to our history and future,” Shuler said. “We hope people will see the value of connecting with the college through the President’s Club.”
