Want to get hands dirty in earth and art? Join the RH School and RH Neighborhood Association on Saturday, April 17, to beautify the neighborhood in a major way.

From 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., you're invited to help tend to the outdoor areas that make RH special, like the recreation center, school, Avenue Terrace (Jordan Rd.) Park, McCrea Park (Carson St.), and Peralta Creek (Rettig Ave). Feeling creative? Help make way for the new mosaic project at the school/rec center. All are welcome!'

It's Picnic Time

The Redwood Heights Picnic is on Saturday, May 1, at the RH Recreation Center and Park. Enjoy a live band and fantastic food right in the neighborhood. The RH Neighborhood Association is partnering with the RH School Dads' Club to present this annual event. Dads' Club members will do what they do best: work the grills and feed hungry picnic-goers. The RHNA will provide the music and entertainment for all ages. It's like a concert in the park with something for everyone. All are welcome. Invite your family, friends, and, of course, your

neighbors. For more information, check out the RHNA Web site.

Legacy Native Garden

With funding from the Advent Software Employee Giving Program, the fifth grade graduates at RH school are installing a native garden. Pheobe McCormick and Daphne Edwards of PWP Landscape Architect Associates designed the new garden, which includes 3 blue oaks, ceanothus, dudleyas, and salvias. Special thanks go to the children, adults, funders, and garden designers for making this garden a reality. Make sure to stop by for a visit.
