RDMC Halloween Party
RDMC held its annual Hallowe'en party at King's Bend, where children gathered to kick off the "Train Your Dragon" party.  People gobbled up some hot Viking appetizers and food.  The childrern enjoyed participating in activities and games, such as feeding the dragon (tossing the bean bags), deciphering the Viking's language and topping it off with the battle of a dragon (a ferocious-looking pinata made by SunMi Carr!  The RDMC board joined in the festivities by dressing up as a Viking (Arlene, SunMi, and Adrianna) and as Toothless (Rhonda).  Over 70 people attended, helping RDMC raise more than $300.  Thank you for helping RDMC accomplish its 2014 fundraising goal!

RDMC SnowTubing Event

Snow tubing is a great winter activity for the whole family to get out and about - RDMC hosted a family event at Glacier Ridge Snow Tubing Park right here in Rochester, NY on Sunday, January 19th, 2014.

Brave RDMC members grabbed a tube and headed for the magic carpet ride, taking them to the top of the hill.  Glacier Ridge's lift system operated quickly to bring folks to the top of the hill, so they could get in as many heart pounding rides as possible.  Their chutes are designed to propel tubes down the hill at exciting speeds.  Lane operators pushed tubers down on eof the chutes for a wild ride!

After sliding to the bottom, RDMC tubers just hopped on the magic carpet lift back to the top!  Imagine the thrill of snow tubing without the dread of climbing back the hill.

Afterwards, RDMC families gathered in the player lounge for a social hour.  They chatted and enjoyed pizza from Salvatore's, which was provided by RDMC.  There was not a better way to spend time outdoors than snow tubing at Glacier Ridge!
