Thank You, ComFest!

Since the rain closed the stage at ComFest, and Alice didn’t get to tell the crowd what the generous ComFest grant money does for Friends of the Ravines, we decided to make a little video to thank ComFest. Here, Alice Waldhauer thanks ComFest and explains that their grant money supports the continued publication of our newsletter, Ravinia.

Greetings from the FOR Board Retreat!

  • New & Improved Membership Benefits
