                      October 2005
                      To Members of the Virginia
                      Municipal League:
                      On behalf of the City of Richmond,
                      I am pleased to extend warm
                      greetings to you and your col-
                      leagues upon the 100th anniversary
                      of your organization.
As you celebrate this occasion during your conference
here, you’ll find that Richmond is ready to greet you with
a broad variety of attractions. Along with the elegance of
the Science Museum of Virginia and the stylish comfort of
the Richmond Marriott and Omni hotels, you can enjoy
outstanding restaurants of every cuisine and upscale and
eclectic shopping venues. You’ll also find numerous
historic landmarks such as the Virginia Museum of Fine
Arts, the Maggie L. Walker Museum, Main Street Station,
the Edgar Allan Poe Museum, and the Arthur Ashe statue
on Monument Avenue.
Richmond is most pleased to serve as the host city during
your organization’s centennial celebration. I hope that
you enjoy your stay in Richmond and will come back to
visit again soon.


Sincerely,




L. Douglas Wilder
Mayor
