To be held at the First Congregational Church on Main Street, the service will remember and honor the deceased members of the community.
The service will feature readings, music and the reading of the Roll of Remembrance.
After, residents are invited to the lighting of the Tree of Life in front of the Richmond Citizen Center next to the church.
A reception will follow in the church's fellowship hall.
