Brazilian BBQ Still On! 5K and Kids’ Fun Run Canceled

Community Day will still happen on Oct. 3 from 12:00-2:00. The 5K run and the Kids’ Run is canceled due to Montgomery County closing all county fields. The weather looks clear starting around noon so come on out for lunch! It will be chilly and still a bit damp so dress warmly!

 

RCA General Meeting October 1, 2015

Neighbors, please come out to the RCA General meeting on October 1st, where we will have a chance to weigh in on reuniting RCA-land under one election district and sharing our long-term vision of RCA-land around Randolph Hills Shopping Center.

Maryland Delegate Al Carr will be at the meeting to gather feedback from residents regarding his bill to reunite RCA-land under one election district as it was prior to the 2010 redistricting process. I know many residents closer to Randolph Road will greatly enjoy having Rocking Horse Center re-instated as their polling place, so please come and share your thoughts with Delegate Carr.

The RCA is also proud to host Allen Kronstadt, the owner of the Randolph Hills Shopping Center, who is interested in hearing from residents about their vision for the shopping center and the community at large under re-development that could take place as part of the White Flint 2 Sector Plan (see: http://www.montgomeryplanning.org/community/whiteflint2/). Although any potential re-development is still years away, this is an important first step in forming our vision with the property owner. We can help shape this vision into the White Flint 2 Sector Plan.

The meeting starts at 8pm at the Viers Mill Rec Center, map.

 

RCA Community Day – Brazilian BBQ 12:00-2:00

The RCA Community Day, hosted at Randolph Hills Park on Saturday, Oct. 3, is still on starting at 12:00! The 5K and Kids’ Fun Run is canceled due to Montgomery County closing all county fields for the weekend. Come on out and enjoy good food and good neighborhood conversation. Hope to see you there!

 

Meet the Candidates, Maryland House of Delegates, District 18

Mark your calendars for a special RCA Meeting on May 1st at 8pm, at the Veirs Mill Rec Center (map). We have invited all of the candidates for the House of Delegates in our district, District 18, to attend our meeting. Each candidate will introduce themselves and then be available for individual questions from our community members. This is not a debate, but a great opportunity to interact with each candidate. We have confirmations from all of the candidates: Delegate Al Carr, Delegate Jeff Waldstreicher, Delegate Ana Sol Gutierrez , Candidate Natali Fani-Gonzalez, Candidate Rick Kessler, Candidate Emily Shetty and Candidate Elizabeth Matory.

 

Community Day and Neighborhood Fun!

On October 5th, fun, fitness, and food were once again delivered to RCA residents on a warm and sunny morning. The 2nd annual race saw a doubling of last year’s participation with 24 neighbors competing in the 5k loop course through the RCA neighborhood. The race kicked off at 10am and the runners raced off onto the Rock Creek Park hiker/biker trail, down Ashley, around the CESJDS and the community garden, and back into Randolph Hills Park. This year the ages ranged from 7 to 62!  We like to thank all the participants and course volunteers for making the whole thing come together on race morning.

For the official 5K race results click here.

This year the kids fun run was in the softball field closest to the playground and also had quite an impressive field.  First up were the 5 and unders who did one loop around the field at a breakneck pace that only 5 and unders can accomplish.  The 6 and older field was a little smaller and completed an endurance testing 2 laps of the field.  It was great once again to have cow-bells, cheering, and laughing in our local park! We hope you will join us next year to continue to build on the success of the event.
