Silver Creek Extreme Cleanup! Saturday April 18

By | RCHCA Biz, Social Events, Volunteer | No Comments

The Silver Creek and adjoining Kensington Parkway Park are significant landmarks in the Rock Creek Hills neighborhood. Many of us escape to the creek area to reconnect with nature and experience the quiet beauty of Rock Creek Park, walk our dogs, ride a bike or take a run. We are proud to tell you that the Rock Creek Hills Citizens Association has officially adopted Silver Creek through the Rock Creek Conservancy Stream Team program, to take a more active role in monitoring and protecting this section of Rock Creek Watershed.

To kickoff this stewardship, we invite you to join us in a Silver Creek cleanup event on Saturday, April 18, from 9:00am-1:00pm, as part of the 7th Annual Rock Creek Extreme Cleanup. This will be one of more than 100 cleanups taking place in April throughout four states and the District of Columbia, hosted by the the Alice Ferguson Foundation Potomac River Watershed Cleanup, the National Park Service and Montgomery County Parks. Our goal is the total cleanup of Silver Creek and surrounding area where trash originates.

During the Silver Creek cleanup we will also participate in the Audubon Naturalist Society Creek Critters program, a mobile phone app used to conduct macro-invertebrate surveys and assess the health and quality of the creek waters. More information and instructions will be sent to participants who register.

Children and groups are welcome to participate, including girl scout or boy scout troops and other local organizations. Students can earn SSL credits, so please bring needed forms. If you are interested in helping with the coordination of the cleanup, please contact me, Laura Dennis, at ldennis99@comcast.net.

We look forward to seeing you at the cleanup!

Best Regards,

Welcome Committee Needs Volunteer

By | Volunteer | No Comments

I am the chair person of the welcome committee. The current co-chair Kathleen Holmay is stepping down and I am looking for another person to work with me on this.

It is an opportunity to meet new neighbors and tell them what you like about RCH and introduce them to some of the resources in our neighborhood they may not know about.

Thanks for your consideration.

RCHCA Newsletter Publishing Vacancy – A Great Volunteer Opportunity!

By | Newsletters, RCHCA Biz, Volunteer | No Comments

The Association would like to thank Jed Dinger for his many years of service (7 years!!) in producing this visually appealing and informative communication tool!

We are searching for a volunteer neighbor to help produce our association newsletter. This newsletter is published three times a year, for the spring fall and winter issues. This is a good opportunity for someone who would like to get involved in the neighborhood
by volunteering, but prefers a role that’s clearly defined and predictable in it’s time commitment. It involves inserting the supplied text into the newsletter layout and
sending the electronic file to the printer. Our printer handles everything from
that point forward. We need someone to start with the Spring issue, and Jed Dinger
(our current publisher) will be available to assist with the orientation. Please direct
your inquiries to Jed Dinger by email: jed@jeddinger.com.
