Randolph-Macon Academy Celebrates 125th Anniversary

Apr 23, 2017

Randolph-Macon Academy’s 125th Anniversary Community Celebration is coming up quickly! This event will take place on Saturday, April 29th, from 11 am to 4 pm. It is free and open to the public, and features items that honor R-MA’s heritage, such as a history display, science projects, a flight simulator, and lessons in how to march. It also includes many just-for-fun activities such as the Zero Shock Stunt Jump, a moon bounce, face painting, a petting zoo, and a cornhole tournament. And it highlights the wonderful relationship the Academy has enjoyed with the Town of Front Royal for the last 125 years, with a community fair, food trucks Fork’d and Mama Lucie’s Kitchen from the Front Royal area, and demonstrations by the U.S. Customs Dogs and Steve Foster’s Amazing Grace. The day will begin with the Yellow Jacket 5K Run, which will incorporate both the school campus and the local area. Remember that Elmo, Mickey Mouse, Spongebob Squarepants, and both Chase and Marshall from PAW Patrol will be there! A full schedule of events is now available; visit rma.edu/celebration or call 540-636-5482 for details.
