RAINRAPS for Fall

July BellarainrapsRAINRAPS are a fashionable version of water repellant outerwear designed by two women from Virginia. A lightweight, hands-free alternative to a coat or umbrella, each RAINRAP comes with a travel pouch to make it easy to carry in your handbag or glove compartment.

RAINRAPS are waterproof and reversible. Weighing just eight ounces, they are perfect for when it’s too hot for a coat but you still need protection from the rain.

The best part about your purchase? During the month of October, they donate 15% of sales on the pink/ orange RAINRAP  to the Massey Cancer Center in Richmond. 

RAINRAPS are available online and in select boutiques around the country.

Meet Anne G. Fox

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAnne G. Fox is a mother of five, a Girl Scout Troop Leader, and an eleven year breast cancer survivor. But to me, Anne G. Fox has always been my Kindergarten teacher. She inspired me at a young age to learn and strive for educational Anne Foxsuccess. She made learning fun, from making “magic pancakes” to “edible green goo”. Things I learned in her class are things I will never forget. I’m sure that throughout her twenty-one years of teaching at Oak Grove, she has inspired many other young students. Only one word can describe Anne G. Fox: Extraordinary.
