Congratulations Bruce Allsop – Retiring After 43 Years!

It’s with mixed emotions that we say goodbye to one of our longest-serving employees.  Our commercial special projects supervisor, Bruce Allsop, is retiring after 43 years of service with James River Air.

For many years now, Bruce has managed our commercial equipment replacement jobs.  He’s been a link between the engineers and supervisors that design the projects and the technicians that complete the actual install.  Whether you needed help designing the best solution for a client, assistance on the job site putting the equipment in, or troubleshooting on difficult circumstances, Bruce was your guy.

Bruce worked with the founder, Hugh E. Joyce, during his time leading the company and has always demonstrated the great qualities that Hugh, Sr. taught his employees.

We wish Bruce the best, and thank him for his many years of service!  His wife, Mary, also a long-time employee, still works with James River, so we’re sure we’ll still see plenty of him around!

2014 Holiday House Tour

James River Air is a Diamond Sponsor for this year’s Holiday House Tour.

The Fan District Association’s 52nd Annual Holiday House Tour will take place on December 13th and 14th, 2014, from 1 to 6 PM each day. Richmond’s Fan District, a revitalized residential neighborhood made up of late 19th and early 20th century houses, is one of the largest and least altered historic townhouse districts in the South. The Fan District is on the National Register of Historic Places and represents one of the largest concentrations of Victorian period townhouses in the USA. The area’s name comes from avenues that “fan out”, creating spaces for small triangle parks from which the avenues begin. Participation by homeowners and volunteers in the annual Holiday House Tour enables the Fan District Association to carry out its mission, and proceeds are used to enhance the neighborhood through school projects, tree planting, park and alley refurbishments, neighborhood concerts, and collaboration with the City of Richmond Police and VCU.
