January Newsletter

Happy New Year!  The Friends of Indian River invite you to attend our Annual Meeting on Thursday, January 18, 7 pm at Oaklette United Methodist Church. We will hold elections for our officers and board members, and discuss plans for 2018.  

In preparation for the Annual Meeting, we are doing a survey to understand the interests of our members.  Fill out this survey and you'll have a chance to win one of four gift certificates to local merchants or a copy of the book "Home Landscaping Mid-Atlantic Region" by Holmes and Buchanan.  Take this brief survey at https://goo.gl/forms/BlEwuMBACkoJNQ1P2

Sincerely,
Rogard Ross

Adopt-A-Park Volunteer Work Day
Date: Saturday, January 20th, 9:00 am to Noon
Location: Indian River Park, 2001 Rokeby Avenue

Meet at the park entrance at Rokeby Ave. and Main St. (2001 Rokeby Ave.) which is located just south of Military Highway, i.e. across Military Highway from the Fire Station. We'll be focusing on removal of invasive species, primarily English Ivy. The more volunteers that come out the more that we can accomplish! Please wear closed-toe shoes, a hat and bring work gloves. We will have water and lots of snacks. (We also always encourage folks to bring their own water in reusable bottles to minimize use of plastic bottles). Participants under 18 years of age must have adult supervision.

  1. One of the most important considerations you'll need to give to your business meeting is where you're going to hold it. Whether you are going to use convention center in your own office or exploring potential alternatives, be sure that it fits the occasion.

  10. Magnesium is found in so many healthy whole foods like beans, nuts, seeds and green leafy vegetables. In fact, the magnesium element is central to a plant's chlorophyll – it's actually what causes green plants to be green! And most of us just don't get enough green plants into our bodies on a regular basis. (You know I have a recipe with green leafies for you below, right?).
