Hello RIE Neighbors,
What a HOT summer it has been and the world continues to go mad. Speaking of mad,
have you all noticed how crazy the bats are? If not, look outside at dusk. Absolutely INSANE
how many there are. Anyhow, amid the chaos, our community is a nice place to be.
I was looking up some quotes about communities and came across this- “A true
community is not just about being geographically close to someone or part of the same social
network. It’s about feeling connected and responsible for what happens”. The board is wanting
to increase participation in their meetings and is trying to get more people to attend. The next
board meeting is Aug. 25 at 5:00. They hope with the later meeting time, more people will be
able to join (either in person or by Zoom). So, mark your calendars, bring your 5:00 beverage of
choice, and participate as long as your schedule allows.
Anyhow, school is gearing back up and the holidays are just around the corner. Everyone
is getting busier so I will respect everyone’s time and keep the rest of this blunt and to the point.
