New Monthly Newsletter
The River e-Newsletter is changing! We are going to a once a month posting and print at the beginning of the month. Each month an elder will post and we will have a month and a half of activities and news posted as well in the Gather, Grow, Go format we are currently using. That means you can get all your news in one shot for the month! We hope to keep it more interesting and current so you will enjoy reading it. If you have something you would like included in the newsletter, please send it to the office by the 20th of the month to give us time to include it. We hope you like this new idea and we'll try not to send too many additional emails between.
PMS Sewing Day
Saturday, May 2 from 1-5pm
Women, let's get more sewing done on our Days for Girls project! Remember--you do not need to be a woman who sews--you could be a woman who can iron, turn items inside-out, place snaps (made easier with our new snap-setter). Just come, we'll plug you in!
