Message from the President

Happy New Year! I hope that all of you had a wonderful Christmas celebration and a safe but happy New Year's Eve celebration. We are at the start of a new year and a new decade. Let's keep this wonderful organization going strong as it has been since 1969. Working together, we can do great things. January's meeting is on Monday the 20th. There will be no speaker but there will be a fun activity. If you're intrigued by this, plan on attending.

The RLAWC maintains the flower beds by the signs for both Fishing Creek Elementary School and Red Land High School.  



No, this photo is not out of focus.  If you look closely, you see that Fishing Creek was very creative in using the sign as a backdrop to display their student's photos!
