Join the Effort to “Deep Clean” Rosemont High

Our new RHS Principal Liz Vigil is planning a “deep cleaning” of the campus on Saturday, August 16, from 8am to noon, and RCA is helping recruit community volunteers for the effort. Work will include cleaning desks, scraping gum, brushing down cobwebs, remove tape from windows, poles, etc., picking up litter  and removing weed mats. What a great way to start the new school year off on a good step, and welcome to campus our new Class of 2018. All are invited. To help, contact Liz Vigil at 228-5844 ext. 1011, or Christina Pritchett at pritchett4scusd@yahoo.com.  

Want to Go Out?
National Night Out Set for August 5
Has your neighborhood begun plans to participate in National Night Out and make a bold statement against crime in your area? This influential and effective program brings together neighbors to visibly join in acting for a safe community. It is easy to do. Just click HERE for a flyer with more information. Work with the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department (they can give helpful advice and information, and maybe even show up) and your nearby neighbors, pick a convenient front yard, plan food (potlucks are most fun and easiest), and get to know each other. Ideally your group will decide to form a Neighborhood Watch program (if you don’t already have one) and really be prepared to keep your neighborhood safe. And if you do a NNO, let us know so RCA can help you celebrate.

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 info@rosemontca.org and tell us what you have. Of course, we are always looking for volunteers and contributions to make this fun event happen.

Help Make a Good Thing Happen
Here is a unique chance to help your community. The RCA Celebration of Community on August 23 is in need of donations, particularly funds, and a source of sodas and chips for the free lunch. If you or your business can assist with either cash donations or these supplies, the entire community will be most grateful, and we’ll be happy to give you full recognition for your generosity. Just contact Dee Gavaldon at info@rosemontca.org or 363-0316 and let her know what you can do. And thank you for your help!

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 info@rosemontca.org and let us know what you’d like to do to help your community.

New Girl Scouts Troop Forming
Girl Scouts and Unity of Sacramento are teaming up to form a new Girl Scout troop near Rosemont. All girls who will be in kindergarten through 12th grade this fall are invited to join. Girls and adults are welcome to come to an informational meeting on Tuesday, July 29 to learn more and form the troop. When and where: 6:00 p.m.- 8:00 p.m., Unity of Sacramento, 9249 Folsom Blvd. Volunteers are also needed to share in the fun. For more information, contact: Joanna Morris at joanna.morris@girlscoutshcc.org, or 916-453-5248.

Food Trucks are Back on Friday, August 1
Come out and enjoy Rosemont’s monthly Food Truck Fest on Friday, August 1, in Rosemont Community Park, from 5-8pm. They will be great tasty foods, cool entertainment, and great socializing with your neighbors. And you can learn what else is happening in Rosemont, and even join the Rosemont Community Association. Bring the whole family, and your friends.

Watch Out for the BAAT Mobile
The Sacramento County Animal Shelter has recently launched their new BATT Mobile – the Bradshaw Animal Assistance Team trailer that can provide no-cost vaccination, micro-chipping, and wellness services to county dog owners who otherwise might not have access or the means for these resources. The community will immediately recognize the BAAT Mobile with its outstanding design. The BAAT Mobile is also a clinic on wheels.  Besides being used as a community outreach vehicle for wellness events, adoptions, and licensing, the BAAT Mobile is also a fully equipped surgical unit capable of spay/neuter surgeries and minor procedures. They will be scheduling community spay/neuter events in the near future with the goal of helping prevent unwanted litters and to help keep our communities’ pets healthy and happy at low cost.

Do You Know What to Do After a Car Accident?
Accidents can be stressful situations, involving even the most careful drivers. The California Department of Insurance would like you to encourage you to follow the steps provided HERE if you or your family are ever involved in a collision.

Coupla’ Concerns…
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.

RCA Web Site to Be Enhanced; Your Ideas Needed
We are planning to make some upgrades to how RCA communicates with you and the community and we’d like your thoughts. We expect to make better use of social media, and at the same time will probably reach out to those not on the Internet via occasional regular mail. Most importantly, we need to hear from you and stay connected to all here, young and older alike, so RCA meets you needs. Please let us know what you think by email to info@rosemontca.org or by snail mail at RCA, PO Box 277194, Sacramento, CA 95827.

CHP Offers Free Driving Safety Classes for Both Seniors and New Drivers
Our local CHP office has scheduled free driver safety classes for both new divers and “more mature” drivers so they can be safer on the road – and keep the rest of us safer. Classes being mid-August, but sign up now to get your choice of times. Click HERE for more information on both programs.

What CRPD Activities Would You Like in Rosemont?
The good folks at the Cordova Recreation and Park District, which provides all our park and rec services here in Rosemont, has asked for suggestions for recreation activities that we might want to have offered here. Presently, all that is offered is a few weeks of swimming and ping-pong at Rosemont High. If you have ideas for what programs we should have available here, and especially if you can suggest qualified persons to conduct the programs, please send your ideas to us at info@rosemontca.org.

Want to Help Plan Rosemont and the Surrounding Areas?
Land use plans in the unincorporated area of Rosemont and its surroundings are first reviewed by the Cordova Planning Advisory Council. CORPAC provides local insight and comment about such proposals, and often is able to make them more acceptable to those who live around them. Currently there are several openings on CORPAC, and it would be beneficial if at least one of those positions was filled by a person from Rosemont who appreciates the interests of our community. CORPAC meets monthly in the evening for an hour or two when there are matters to consider. If this is a service you might like to provide, contact RCA at info@rosemontca.org and we can provide more details and further contact information.

County Offers Water Wise Information
As our region experienced its third consecutive dry winter in late in 2013, the Sacramento County Water Agency asked its customers to make a voluntary 20 percent reduction in water use. The new Get Water Wise Initiative helps you achieve your conservation goals by organizing, categorizing and incentivizing water reduction options, tips and techniques. Learn about it HERE.

Remember, Kids Don’t Float!
As summer approaches and we begin to think about water recreation and river time, The County has some helpful tips to keep our kids safe. Click HERE.
