Thursday 4/12 Ladies Meet & Greet at the Village Club 7pm
Ladies Meet and Greet is the second Thursday of every month. Bring your favorite beverage, a small snack to share, and mingle with your neighbors!

Sunday 4/15 Frontier Market at the Chickawa Outdoor Center 1-5pm
You are invited to the first annual River Bluff Young Life FRONTIER MARKET! The event will take place on April 15th from 1-5 in Saluda River Club’s Chickawa Outdoor Center. Vendors will include students and leaders who are selling their very own creations in order to fundraise for Young Life Camp this summer. There will be coffee, food, live music, artwork, pottery, jewelry, and a silent auction with a chance to win multiple prizes and offers from local businesses.  Young Life is a pair church ministry that offers a casual and relational setting to share the gospel with high schoolers. The idea behind summer camp is to offer each high school kid an oasis for just a week where they are without the stress of home life. The hope is that each kid will feel loved and valued and will be clearly and fully presented with the gospel. This year, River Bluff High School is going to Frontier Ranch in Colorado for camp- one of the very first established Young Life camps! The cost of camp is about $950 (one of the more expensive trips due to transportation), so our fundraising efforts are extra important this year as we work hard to allow any and every kid an opportunity to go without money being an object.   Donation tables will be set up at the event.
