The 2013 RBA Holiday Party, held December 5th at Cherokee Run Golf Club, was a smashing success. Much warmth and good times were shared by all. Many RBA members brought toys to benefit children served by Rockdale Emergency Relief. It was a joy to be together again for this special holiday celebration.
A thank you to all who planned the event (a special thank you to RBA Vice-President Carrie Bootcheck, who masterminded the event) and all who participated.
