Focusing & Setting Goals
 
 
 
 
It's time to get amped up for the next 365 days! We are looking forward to tackling 2018 alongside all of you. We are excited for what this year may bring to us, our community, and our local waterways.

During December's JRBP Member "Meet-&-Be-Great" Meeting, our members had a chance to get their thoughts on track for 2018. Each member contemplated their main goal for 2018 - focused on sustainability, volunteering, or action within the community. They then wrote this goal on a water drop and added it to our tree!
