CORPAC Needs Help
The advisory body that reviews all land use proposals in the greater Rosemont area has vacancies and is calling for people interested in helping guide our area’s growth to volunteer.

Lots of Things Happening at our Rosemont Schools
Spring time is a busy time at our schools, with lots of fun things for the whole community to enjoy. Click HERE to see the details.

Time for a New Hairspray?
Come over to Rosemont High and enjoy a new production of the popular musical play Hairspray, staged by the Drama Club and the Associated Students. It runs May 14, 15, 16 at 7:30 in the Big Theater. To request more information, click HERE.

Spring Cleaning Time
Spring is a great time to clean up around your house and yard. Sacramento County has some ideas how it can help you. Click HERE.

As Spring begins to settle in, now is a great time to get outside and begin sprucing up your front yard. Whether you simply mow and trim, or you are more ambitious and do some new planting, you will be helping make our community one we can all be proud of – and help boost our property values. But remember as you do yard work, please be mindful of conserving water. If you can replace some grass with low-water landscaping, you will not only save water but also save money (and maybe even some future work). You can get helpful advice free at any good nursery.

Kops-N-Kids Camp This Summer
This summer our youngsters will have the enjoyable option of participating in the popular Kops-N-Kids Summer Camp. It provides youth with a unique and fun learning experience by promoting positive choices, teamwork, confidence and integrity. For more information and to register, click HERE.

Church Volunteers to Clean Post Office Property and School
On Saturday, May 17, once again a group from First Covenant Church will be volunteering to clean up around the Post Office on Kiefer and Golden Empire School on Canberra. For budget reasons the Postal Service seems unable to tend to its nice landscaping, resulting in situations where traffic visibility is increasingly limited. Noting the growing problem, Rosemont church members have organized a crew of workers, and are recruiting support from local businesses to provide materials. The church volunteers will also return to Golden Empire Elementary School to do more clean up there.

This is a fine example of members of our community seeing a need and taking the initiative to remedy it. Our thanks and appreciation to all involved in the wonderful community service.

Rosemont Scholarship Criteria Changed
The RCA board modified the qualifications for the RCA High School Scholarship to open it to all seniors living in Rosemont, not just those attending Rosemont High. The rationale is that as a community association representing all living here we should be encouraging all our seniors to apply regardless of the school they attend. Click HERE to see the full information and the application form.
