Third open house

Well the dates have been confirmed: The Renewingriverview folks are hosting another information gathering exercise for Riverview.

     Apparently Stanley King is also facilitating these meetings and  their expertise is primarily focused on building and site planning.  [ Never knew that we were at that stage in the process; I want the satin silk pleated curtains in a burgundy-peach please; and the platinum- plated outdoor taps would be a nice touch ]

The third round of Riverview Open Houses will be interactive. Join us and brainstorm ideas in a collaborative  session and see your ideas come to life with the help of an artist.
