Spring 2020
RPSV Cares
Spring is here!

With warmer weather ahead, the world is looking brighter as the sun is out, days are longer, and the trees and flowers bloom. Despite what's happening around the globe, your attitude determines your state-of-mind. Stay positive. Practice good self-care. Wash your hands and all surfaces. Turn off the news for a while. And, be sure to practice social distancing.

Together, we will get through this!
