End of Summer Beach Trip!
RUBARB took it's annual summer field trip to Wavelabnd, MS (Aug '14)! The bike shop crew swam all day, picknicked, found crabs, buried each other in the sand, got stung by jellyfish and had an amazing time frolicking on the beach. We ended with a stop at Bayou Sauvage, where we watched fishermen rangle a garfish and ate watermelon on the dock. Fun was had by all! Stay tuned for Fall field trips and other exciting events.

Thanks to the Jazz and Heritage Foundation, RUBARB was awarded 15 tickets to Jazzfest this year through their Community Tickets Program! We hung out making crafts at the Kids Tent, watched an amazing Capoira group from Brazil, learned woodworking skills and picnicked in Stallings Park. check out photos HERE!
