WELCOME, ROCK RIVER VISITORS
NEW: The annual barbecue fundraiser for Rock River Preservation Inc. will be held on Sunday, May 28, 2017, the day before Memorial Day!
Please mark your calendars and come out to support Rock River, celebrate the return of summer, and enjoy some good food with old and new friends.
This year we'll be at Fieldstone Lodge B&B in Newfane, where our hosts will be Gary Delius and Bob McCandless, proprietors of Fieldstone Lodge. Bob recently succeeded Gary on the RRP board. It's a beautiful place for a gathering as can be seen on their website. We'll have the run of the place, and guest rooms will be available for rent should you need accommodations (contact Gary and Bob through their website for that).
The party starts around 5:00 p.m., with dinner around 6:30. Feel free to arrive later if you need to. We will provide an assortment of smoked meats, grilled burgers, sausages, veggie burgers and buns. Please bring an appetizer, side dish or dessert, and/or something to drink (wine, beer, cider, or soft drinks; no hard liquor please). There's usually plenty of food, so if you don't have time to cook, just bring yourself.
You are welcome to bring as many guests as you like, but please RSVP via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, so we know how many to expect. We really hope you can make it!
Recommended donation is $20 per person, although any amount in cash or check will be gratefully accepted. Checks should be payable to Rock River Preservation. If you want to use a credit card, please prepay by clicking the "donate" button on the contact page of this site.
All donations go directly to support RRP's important work protecting this unique and beloved natural resource.
Hope to see you there!
Thom, Hugh, Bob and Moon
