Underneath Rose Park

Secret caves? Hidden skeletons? Gold Doubloons? What is beneath Rose Park Neighborhood is the underpinning of coastal life in Southern California where hundreds of thousands of people have gone before. Holding on and steering forward gets re-calibrated every August. The neighborhood association is thrilled with hosting this year’s kick-off Board meeting with: Emily Stevens, Brooke Baker, Dave Clement, Jessica Truesdell and Gretchen Swanson. And as ex officio board members Danielle Dague Potter, Darick Simpson and Dawn Mendelson.

The board meets monthly and from Sept. through June each year meets at St. Matthews. Please email if you want to be placed on the agenda. It’s 90 minutes of speed fun and focus. In August we sketch out the year’s calendar and assign the portfolios (more to come in successive emails). Every two years in September we review our values set based on verifiable data specific to Rose Park. In November we review our annual budget and prepare for all our non-profit corporate filings. And along the way we initiate, organize and coordinate actions, meetings and events.

These year we have two locations for National Night Out! Always the first Tuesday in August.

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Last Sunday almost 200 came out to the annual Rose Park Neighborhood picnic “Sunday at the Park”. The music was blissful, the summer games awesome, and the cake….well took the cake! All our volunteers and community partners made it awesome fun – thank you Council Member Pearce for serving up the cake!

And for perfect timing and a give back – Safe Refuge is having a Car Wash at F&M Bank on Anaheim. Sunday July 28th 11am-2pm. Car washes are a terrific way to connect to our non-profit community while taking care of some needed auto care. Please stop by!!
