President’s Message

May is an exciting month for RAA.  Not only is the weather beautiful and flowers are blooming, but we also have ART  IN  THE  PARK!  This is such a great art show, in Smiley Park, with so many artists and their art creations on display and for sale.  We have done this show on Mother’s Day weekend for the last several years, and it is such fun to see Moms of all ages coming through the park with their families, sometimes choosing their own Mother’s Day gifts!  What could be better than that?  This year the dates were May 8th and 9th, and it was a wonderful weekend.

Coming up on June 2nd is the Annual Meeting and Dinner.  This year it will be held at Redlands United Church of Christ, 168 Bellvue in Redlands.  (That’s the Art For Heaven’s Sake church).  The potluck dinner will start at 6pm, and after eating lots of yummy food, we will have the installation of the new slate of Officers and other Operating Committee members for the new year.  We will also recognize the hard work of those who have participated during this last year.

Remember this dinner is open to all members.  If you are new to RAA, this is a good opportunity to meet other members, learn more about RAA, and have an enjoyable evening.  Bring a salad, maindish or dessert to share.  Sign up in the gallery, so we will know how many tables and chairs to set up.  Let’s see everyone there!
