*on july 24, RUBARB visited the Alvar branch library for a musical storytelling hour. we learned about accordians, ukeleles, and contributed important details to a re-telling of Little Red Riding Hood. Afterwards, we enjoyed pizza, prizes and free books!
*RUBARB held a "repair-a-thon" and farewell party, to thank St Mary's for hosting us all these years and celebrate an end of an era! we fixed up a bunch of bikes, ate great food, held raffles, and had a drum circle hosted by project rising. thanks to all that helped, attended, participated!
*RUBARB took a crew to the zoo for the "Poetry Debut"-- poetry was installed all around the zoo, right by the various exhibits and animals. We strolled around, watched the creatures, pet some animals, and played in a torrential downpour. Thanks to the New Orleans Public LIbrary for the free tickets!
*3 RUBARB kids got to experience the 1st annual bike rodeo, which taught them about bike safety, hand signals, and road signs. A bicycle 2nd line passed us by and we ended the day with natural frozen pops at the Crescent City Farmers Market. yum!
