Casino Fundraiser: Thanks

A big thank you again to all who helped at the RMERF casino!  It is only through support of many people (and the family members brought along!) that financially RMERF can strongly continue in its golden eagles and raptors migration observations, reporting, and educational outreach functions.  During the casino two days, I think too we had fun,  reviewed the Foundation work, and had some great conversations about life in general……  I thank too, our Advisors Val and Tony in leading us in the various roles, and dealing with chips and cash.
On top of the casino funds we receive, we made tips of $66.60.  We will know the final amount of funds from the two nights in September.

Annual Member BBQ 2016

It was a great turn out and about 25 people attended this year. We received a little rain but it wasn’t enough to dampen our spirits, especially with a wonderful rainbow afterwards as a reward. We would like to thank Heinz and Marilyn again for being such organized, attentive, and gracious hosts and to Claire and Joe for all their organizational work, and for bringing food, drink, and bright smiles. Enjoy some photos below. Photo credits Cliff Hanson, David Sweeney
