Fun Celebration of Community Coming Up Fast
Rosemont Community Association’s Sixth Annual Celebration of Community will fill Rosemont Community Park on Saturday, August 23, from 9:30am to 1:30pm. Bring the whole family out to enjoy games, displays, rides, activities, free food, and lots of friendly people. We have many new attractions planned this year, plus some popular returnees.
If you know of an organization, activity or business serving Rosemont that might want to reach our residents here, there are still some free booths available. Just contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us what you have. Of course, we are always looking for volunteers and contributions to make this fun event happen.
Rosemont Volunteers Step Up
There is something special about the people in Rosemont. They care about their community and they step up and volunteer to help make it even better.
In the last few weeks we have been contacted by a number of residents here offering to help out in various ways, if only for a few hours. Know that every little bit helps and is appreciated by all. Have you or your family stepped up yet? It’s easy – just contact us at email@example.com and let us know what you’d like to do to help your community.
HELP! RCA Seeks Folks to Assist With Various Projects
If you can spare a few hours a month, even for a few months, your community can use your talents. We are seeking people able to help with the following work:
Membership: data base management and recruitment coordinator (can be separate).
Communications: developing and guiding a plan to keep people informed and engaged.
Website manager: to help make sure all the systems are effective and working.
Website editors and reporters: to feed and post articles of value to the community.
Events coordinators: to plan and manage the various RCA activities during the year.
Volunteer coordinator: to recruit, track and support the many volunteers who make RCA work and help us have a great community.
Business outreach coordinator: to work with our business community to strengthen and support it and recruit more businesses to Rosemont.
Government relations coordinator: to monitor what our public agencies are doing that might affect Rosemont and to recommend appropriate actions for RCA.
If you would like more information about any of these areas of volunteering, just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to discuss these with you. Remember, Rosemont is great because we have great volunteers who care about their community.
We have received concerns recently from Rosemont residents about two things.
One is animals, especially dogs, running loose which are inclined to rush and intimidate people passing by, especially if they have their pets with them. In one instance, apparently the dog attacked the passing pet. Of course, that is a problem on several fronts, not to mention a safety and liability threat. County ordinance requires pets to be under control, so dogs and other beasties should be restrained if they are outside where they can encounter people or other animals. That’s just common courtesy and sense.
The other concern is yards being neglected. Yea, we know we are supposed to cut way back on water usage, and it appears Rosemont is doing a good job on that. But there still is a minimum level of yard maintenance we can do so properties don’t look like a slum. At the least, be sure grass and weeds are cut low (too long and it is a code violation that the Fire Department will enforce), and trash is promptly removed. If we each don’t take pride in our properties our values will fall and our community will deteriorate. None of us wants that. Maybe a friendly comment to your neighboring offender will stir action.
