Memorial Planned for Longtime St. Cloud Fireworks Commissioner
ST. CLOUD (WJON News) -- The St. Cloud Fireworks Committee is recognizing longtime Fireworks Commissioner Tom Richardson later this week.
The organization is holding a Community Open House in remembrance of Richardson Thursday. Richardson unexpectedly passed away on March 25th at the age of 65.
Board Chair Jason Bernick says Tom's son Ryan, will be in attendance to share stories with the community.
The event will take place at Iron Street Distillery from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
