Nature teaches us to be flexible, so we are shifting the date of the Rake-In to this Wednesday November 18th, 2-5 pm to take advantage of the sunny weather on Wednesday and avoid the forecasted rains for Friday!
Life can be challenging, especially when confronted with the recent events abroad. For me, my spirit is strengthened when I get the chance to connect with strangers, especially when engaging in some common service. In addition to the environmental benefits, this is a major aspect of the Rake-In. I've already met (and raked with) some wonderful people who are supporting this effort. We hope you can maximize the social benefits of this event by forwarding this notice to your networks, especially to folks that might benefit from a break in their normal routine.
