FOR THE NEXT
RIVERBANK NEIGHBORS FUNDRAISER
DEAR NEIGHBORS AND FRIENDS:
WE'RE PLANNING AN "END OF the SUMMER PICNIC" in the yard of the Carlsons - at Pensacola and the River, south side.
THERE'LL BE GRILLED SAVORIES, SALADS, and SWEETS, THIRST-QUENCHERS, LIVE MUSIC, A SILENT
AUCTION, AND BEAN BAG TOSS GAMES.
Suggested donation: $20.00 for Adults/$10.00 for children 12 and under
(Admission will include a food choice and soft drink. Tickets available at the event for entry and alcoholic drinks.)
Thanks to many of you, we raised $1000.00 at the previous house concert fundraiser in February (at April and Patrick's) which has been used (as you've all noticed) to purchase split rail fencing, materials for the Berteau walk down, plants/trees, and refreshments for the volunteers who have really sweated this summer! We are hoping to raise funds this time for more fencing materials, two more sign kiosks, and benches.
SAVE THE DATE - SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2-6PM and please let me know if you would like to help organize, donate, perform, "man" a station, or contribute to the silent auction. SPREAD THE WORD!
