Think about LRNow in your Gift Planning
Please think about Lynnhaven River NOW when you are planning your holiday gifts.  A gift membership is a really nice way to show someone your commitment to restoring and protecting our environment in Virginia Beach.  Gift memberships can be arranged by calling our office at 757-962-5398.  The recipient will receive a letter acknowledging your gift, information about LRNow and our quarterly newsletters throughout the next year. 
In addition to our beautiful calendars, we have other items that may make the perfect holiday gift:  rain barrels, LRNow hats, tee shirts, golf shirts and fleece vests.  Think about using our reusable shopping bags to wrap your gifts---no trash. 
Our newest items are our rain jackets for men and women.  They come in yellow and navy blue and need to be ordered in advance.  We will have samples at our Public Meeting Thursday evening and will be taking orders through Friday, December 4th for delivery before Christmas.
Above all, have a really nice holiday and don't forget to renew your membership in Lynnhaven River NOW.  Your support is the reason for our success.  We appreciate everything you are doing to further this work.
