*We went on a field trip to Washington Park (June 30), where the New Orleans Free School Network was putting on an event for kids. we played games and ate good food... everyone had a grand ol time.
*a group of high school students from St Ignacious in San Fran volunteered for a day at RUBARB. this group, which has been coming to the bike shop for the last 4 summers!, donated pumps, helped fix bikes, organized and played with the kids. we thank them greatly for their continuous support.
*R.U.B.A.R.B. recently went to a Zephyrs game on Fireworks Friday and it was amazing! The next day we went to Forestival at the Studio in the Wood. We danced, drummed, built a clay forest and rode the ferry on the way back to the shop. A great weekend for field trips. Check out our photos section!
*Our fundraiser at the Maison was a smashing success. Thank you to everyone who came out to show your support for R.U.B.A.R.B. Also, a big thanks to Maison, all the bands, everyone who donated to our auction and Jeff, our amazing auctioneer.
