Spring greetings Rivierans

Be prepared!QuakeHouse
The RHA invites you to mark your calendar for the next general meeting, held as usual, at the Richardson Middle School Cafeteria.
The date is April 17, the time 7:00pm.
The subject: Getting Ready for the Big One.  You know what we mean!

This will be a great chance to update your preparedness for what we know is coming, but somehow put off getting ready for.  Come prepared for an interesting and lively discussion of disaster preparedness, and the role of CERT (Community Emergency Response Team)  training, a critical effort in times of crisis.
On the topic of view ordinances, we will share some information about upcoming city council meetings and hearings to take place this spring.
Annual elections will be held, and refreshments will be served.

For an early look at the upcoming Riviera Reporter, you can find it on our up-to-date website, by clicking here.  As well, you can browse early editions of the Reporter to find some interesting slivers of insight into your neighborhoods past.  You should also find this latest Reporter in your mailbox soon.  
The scholarship committee has been hard at work going through a substantial stack of applications for this year’s RHA scholarship awards.  Stay tuned as the results are announced, and seniors, stay focused!
