Former RAA board members get together for the camera. “A monumental evening” is how one RAA board member described the organization’s Saturday fundraiser. The very well attended event was a celebration of RAA’s mission of arts, education, culture and community; and those people who have contributed to that successful, continuing journey. The program, entertainment, food and especially the camaraderie were incomparable. The fun abounded, as can be seen in these images of the ‘RAA family.’ Photos by Jonas Mlenak.
