Nov 2020

                        A letter from our president Mary Holliday:
                        Were you ever in a class where one of the required reading assignments
                        was such a bore? Did you sigh and just want to ignore it? Did you struggle
                        off and on - yet, you kept plowing through it page after page, and still
                        finished the book? Well, that kind of sums of 2020 – right?

                        This year has been different, not boring but definitely challenging to say
                        the least. It has not been easy canceling events from month to month. It
                        also has been sad not to gather, see each other in person and share a
                        hug, or two. Yes, this year has been unnerving and unsettling in many ways
                        however, we, here at Rita’s Rainbows, have been leaning on the positive!

                      We are grateful that we have been able to continue to communicate with
                      agencies and fill their requests for children in need. This is all made possible
                      because of you. Your generosity and contributions carry the torch of Rtia’s
                      legacy and we so appreciate your continued support. In each new day we
                      are honored to bring light, love and SMILES to children in need.
We are scheduling events for 2021 and look forward to a variety of opportunities – to meet and
greet, to serve and make a positive difference in the lives of children in need. We hope you will join
us. Together may we write a great book in 2021 – one worth reading!
