Community volunteers are both the warp and the weft of the Rockridge fabric as community needs are found and filled. What unraveling threads in that fabric have you seen? RCPC can help you work on them. Or, you may be more attracted to serving on the RCPC board. Either way, this Town Hall presents an overview of productive projects planned by RCPC in 2015. For example, short-term programs such as the Kitchen Tour, Out and About, or the Halloween Parade call for a day or two of volunteer support. These are rewarding events to help with and you're done at the end of the day.
