 This newsletter is compiled by the Rock Spring Civic Association for residents of the Rock Spring neighborhood.

1. Storm Damage Information:  We hope you survived Monday’s storm and none of you need this information.

2.  A Plea for New RSCA Executive Board Members:  In our fall meeting, elections for the Executive Board of Rock Spring Civic Association will be held.  Some of our current board members have moved and others are retiring.  We are in need of interested Rock Spring residents to join us. We usually meet once a quarter, unless there is a pressing issue affecting Rock Spring.  Please consider how you can help our neighborhood moving forward to 2020. Send your name and contact information to one of the newsletter editors, email below.
