Membership drive

Colby Prevost, RCA Treasurer, provided a summary of this year’s membership drive thus far. We have 120 members as of late, who have contributed approximately $5000 to the Randolph Civic Association (RCA). Of the 120 members, approximately 110 have chosen to take advantage of our membership offer that includes a discount card for local businesses. All participating businesses can be found on the RCA’s website: http://randolphcivic.org/about/benefitscard/. Colby said that the RCA had a second rush for members with advertisement in a second Echo newsletter. There was a discussion about when the membership drive for this year would end. We will have one more Echo advertising RCA membership. During this discussion, it was mentioned that the RCA’s spring event, MusicFest, needs to be put on the calendar.

County Council At-Large Forum, March 7

Important neighborhood meeting Thursday, March 7th at 8 pm at the Viers Mill Rec Center (map).

We have invited our 4 At-Large Council Members to hear us present our neighborhood priorities and for them to provide an update on their agenda for the coming year. We are looking forward to hosting Council Members Hans Reimer, Will Jawando, Evan Glass and Gabe Albornoz. Council Members Jawando, Glass and Albornoz were recently elected to their first term on the Council. It is important for them to understand and appreciate our neighborhood priorities. Having all four At-Large Council Members at our community meeting is a special and unusual opportunity. This is our chance to show our Council Members that we have a strong community who should be considered as they grapple with the budget. To do that, we collectively need to show up to the meeting. Let’s fill the room with neighbors! We’ve long maintained strong relationships with our elected officials, and it has served us well over the years. Let’s show our Council Members how great and dedicated our community can be. If you come to one meeting this year, this should be the one.

Winter Beer Garden Pictures

By most measures, our first Beer Garden event this past Saturday was very successful.  The beers and air were cold, but the bonfires and neighborly smiles were warm.  Thank you to our friends at 7 Locks Brewing, True Respite Brewing, and Cafe 2020 Korean Kitchen + Bar for helping make this event possible.

Winter Beer Garden Event, Saturday February 9


WHAT: RCA Winter Beer Garden
WHERE: The RCA Civic Green @ Randolph Hills Shopping Center map
WHEN: Saturday, February 9th, 3pm to 8pm
RSVP to the Facebook Event

During October’s Placemaking Festival, the RCA was approached by True Respite Brewing Company to partner with them on a winter beer garden festival. The RCA board were enthusiastic about making this idea a reality. With the new firepits, furniture, and trees in place, the brewers and the RCA saw the green space on the edge of the Randolph Hills Shopping Center as the perfect place for such an event.

The RCA is excited about this new partnership, as it is a fantastic opportunity to pick up where the Placemaking Festival left off. The fire pits and awesome furniture are still on site at the corner of Rocking Horse Rd and Boiling Brook Pkwy, begging to be used for another exciting festival. So mark your calendars: on Saturday, February 9th from 3pm to 8pm, come have a beer or two or three with your neighbors around the fire pit. In addition to True Respite, neighborhood hangouts 7 Locks Brewing, Cafe and 2020 Korean Kitchen + Bar will also be at the event.

So bundle up, bring the family, and come enjoy the crisp winter air. Keep an eye on this website, our Facebook page, and Nextdoor for additional details as we draw closer to the event!
