We hope that you are keeping well. You were added to this list because of your interest in what we were up to or because a member added you. Feel free to unsubscribe at the bottom of the page. We are still growing our list and are thankful for your support.The collective has been busy working, planning, grant writing with some jamming thrown in there. Paying homage to the moo, welcoming back Rose from India, sending nisha to India and missing Vic in Oakland.

Now that spring is almost here, we have so much in store.  Come check out what R3 is up to! So many good things...
