RICHMOND BEACH

Mid-June 2020

COMMUNITY INFORMATION

Seeking Outside Halloween Decorations

The Halloween Carnival is being re-imagined this year and the RBCA is already collecting outside decorations for the event. If you have battery powered candles, yard decorations or other themed pieces that can be used outside (no paper products) please contact RBCA Executive Director, Teresa Pape at execdirector@richmondbeach.org She will make arrangements to pick up from your porch safely.  
 

Event Electrician Needed

The RBCA is looking to partner with a licensed electrician to help us when we have our larger community events, like the Strawberry Festival and this year’s Halloween Event. This is not a volunteer opportunity but a business opportunity. Must be able to bring and set up generators, snake boxes and cables for events. For more information contact RBCA Executive Director, Teresa Pape at execdirector@richmondbeach.org
 

Halloween Event Planning / Building Team

The RBCA is already working on new ways to bring our community events back. The first one on the list is a Halloween event. This will not be the carnival of year’s past. This is an all new event with hints of the past traditions. If you want to help be part of the planning team OR if you are interested in building set pieces that can be outside, like coffins, cauldrons, tombstones, haunted displays, etc. Even if you are interested in swooping in on set up day to help us decorate with lights and props. We would love to make contact with you. For more information email RBCA Executive Director, Teresa Pape at execdirector@richmondbeach.org
 

Looking for Ways to Support the Businesses in Richmond Beach?

We Heart RB is a new web page which supports local businesses. It lists the Richmond Beach restaurants open for takeout, which places have gift cards and which service providers are still taking clients. Please take some time to review our new web page https://richmondbeachwa.org/weheartrb.php
 

Please Consider Sponsoring a Business

The Richmond Beach Community Newspaper is looking for individuals to sponsor the advertisers in the newspaper. Many of the paper’s regular advertisers are currently closed and the RBCN is seriously concerned about the sustainability of the paper. We are looking for ways to supplement the income of the paper without having to ask a small business for money right now. If you are a regular customer of some of the local advertisers, please consider adopting them. Details can be found on the new We heart RB web page at https://richmondbeachwa.org/weheartrb.php
 

Newspaper Volunteers Needed


Richmond Beach Community Newspaper is looking for an Advertising Manager.
The award-winning Richmond Beach Community Newspaper is looking for an individual who can help log and track advertisers for the monthly (10 issues a year) newspaper. This is a volunteer position that takes approximately 8 hours a month. This multi-faceted role is primarily a data management one, with no cold-call sales efforts required - our wonderful advertisers seek us out! You'd be stepping into a position with great historical information. The current Ad Manager will remain available for questions and support as needed. For more information contact RBCA Executive Director, Teresa Pape at execdirector@richmondbeach.org

Newspaper Ad Designer needed for Richmond Beach Community News
Do you enjoy creating graphics, images, and art? Maybe you know of a student that is studying graphic design? Could one of your friends or neighbors be looking for a creative outlet? The RBCA is looking for a graphic designer to design ads for the newspaper. Use this opportunity for a future portfolio or strengthen your professional skills and join the team of enthusiastic volunteers who produce the monthly newspaper  For more information contact RBCA Executive Director, Teresa Pape at execdirector@richmondbeach.org

Ukulele Start-Up for Beginners
https://kcls.bibliocommons.com/events/5ed1862542f48b4500ae1307
Monday, June 15, 4:00 - 5:00 PM
All ages welcome. Everybody loves the ukulele – so happy-sounding and easy to carry! – but how do you play it?? Turns out, anyone can go from zero-to-song in one sitting.
Experienced teacher Wes Weddell will start with the basics and introduce some easy chords that fit with familiar songs (digital handouts will be provided). We’ll cover how to hold the uke, tune it, and strum it, as well as what you can do to practice on your own.
Given the limitations of the digital platform, if parents can help younger students arrive in tune (lots of videos on YouTube), or stick around at the beginning to help, that will go a long way toward us getting good use out of the time.
Sponsored by the King County Library System Foundation.
Classes will use Zoom as a platform, and participants will be asked to mute themselves during songs to accommodate Zoom’s limitations processing audio from multiple sources.
Please register by 10am the day of the event. The Zoom link will be sent to you by email.
