Many thanks to the parents of Emma, David, and Joshua Matteson, Maddie and Noah Johnson, and Makayla Granger for providing suppers for the youth groups in January. RBA’s “out of your comfort zone” meeting in January brought us Pastor Bob Marrone from Union Congregational Church in Peterborough who led us in a fun and rewarding Paint Night loved by all who attended. For the third year in a row there was a snowstorm on the day of the youth group Pat’s Peak ski adventure on January 17. No school that day allowed us to get an earlier start in the afternoon to ski and we skied right up until closing at 9 p.m.

Spare change jars are still coming in for our New York City fundraiser – total to date is $302.90. THANK YOU to all of you who contributed to this fundraiser, and in addition, special thanks to Bob Johnson for his very generous check to support our adventure to NYC.

This month RBA was happy to welcome two new members – Isabelle Hollenbeck and Kendra Gokey.

Our February adventure with RBA and the InCasts will be our annual winter sports weekend at Camp Morgan from Friday-Sunday, February 9-11. It looks like this year both ice skating and cross-country skiing will be possible, along with sledding down the hill behind Camp Morgan.
