The Northern Region RPEA members will continue to meet at Fairbank’s Raven Landing Community Center at noon on the third Thursday of each month between September 2016 and May 2017, except for December 2016. Doors open at 11:30 and lunch costs $15.00 in cash or check written to RPEA. It really helps our lunch collector if you have the exact change. The menu will be determined by  Raven Landing.
