Virtual Caroling for 2020

The annual RCA tradition continues this year virtually.  Join us for Randolph Hills Neighborhood Caroling on Zoom, wherever you are!

Charlene Schramm and Christiana Drapkin will be your gracious online hosts. Sing from your living room, from your kitchen, your front lawn, solo, with kids, pets, grandparents, any and all loved ones. Or join from afar via the ether and stay safely ensconced in the comfort of your home. We will meet and greet each other, welcome new folks as well as old friends. We will go round-robin, and you can sing, sing and play, or sing with your own “soundtrack” behind you if you like. We will all be on “mute” while singing, except for the leader, and sing along in front of our own computer screens, watching all the bobbing heads and smiling faces.

If you need any information ahead of time, you can send me an email at
So very much looking forward to seeing you all.

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!
