*RUBARB had it's 4th Annual Fundraiser at the RED HOUSE! Not only did we raise a lot of money for the shop, but there was great music, food, auction items, a puppet show and kids crawling all over the place. We thank everyone who helped out and are grateful to all the community support. check out some PHOTOS
* RUBARB biked with youth to the Alvar Library to participate in mask and costume making for Mardi Gras! Kids made amazing masks and even got a chance to use the sewing machines and get dressed up. Thanks Alvar for putting this on!
* RUBARB rolled in CHEWBACCHUS this year! NOLA Women on Bikes invited RUBARB to dress up bikes (and ourselves!) and roll with them in the Chewbacchus parade. We tin-foiled ourselves up (the theme was "robociclettas") and handed out swag at the parade. Thanks Women on Bikes, it was so much fun!
*The RUBARB Holiday Extravaganza (Dec 21) was a big success! We made a X-mas tree out of wheels and parts, played 4-square, ate delicious food, received treats in our homemade stockings, and planted 5 trees!
* At the end of October, we took our very own Coco and her family to see Boneshaker, a film that she co-starred in! In November, we took our annual trip to Fringe to see an aerial act called Icarus. We also took a small crew of 1 to the Draw-a-Thon at the Marigny Opera House!
