A sampling from our Golden Anniversary festival September 23 (please allow a few moments for slideshow to load)…
This year, we celebrate our Semicentennial! Since its incorporation in 1967, Hurt has been known and loved for its pleasant, family-friendly atmosphere and sense of community.
A Semicentennial committee, composed of 7 citizens from diverse walks of life, is coordinating a series of events throughout the year for commemoration of our Golden Anniversary.
Historical presentation at Town Hall on Sunday, November 5 at 2:00 p.m. More information will be published as details are resolved, so please check this page periodically for updates.
Happy Birthday and Anniversary from Richmond!
