RBN Post:

Believe it or not!
Spring is Coming,
and the Spring Equinox is proof un-contestable!

RBN will celebrate the Spring Equinox on Saturday, March 22, at 12 noon! (please add this to your calendar!)

But Where?

Who would like to host?
We have a number of secured places to go to if needed. 
But, if anyone has a great idea, 
or an urge to open their doors to our community...
Say the words. 
Please contact
or Kevin, 
or Julie 
to dot the eye
and cross the tea.

Look for news on the RBN website, 
updates on the tardy riverbank project,
and the drama across the bank regarding a possible nesting area for Black Crowned Night Herons. 
We are awash in Projects! 
God and Gourd help us through!

Keep singing,
