Update from the CRCC on March 6

This is the March 6, 2012 press release from the CRCC by Donna Doyle.

(CRCC) has little news to report since we are all still resting after the Sweetheart's Ball and haven't met in awhile. Therefore, would like to review and remind everyone of all that the CRCC is about and what we are looking for, as well as a few reminder dates for you.

Volunteers are important and almost as important as raising money since the more active volunteers, the more likely we are to raise the necessary funds to open the center and skate park.

You say you're too busy to give any time? That's understandable. Many of the active volunteers are in the same boat, but dedicate what they can to helping the CRCC. It is assumed we all lead busy lives and have full and busy schedules, yet there is always some way a person can help. Just express your willingness to do what you can do and when there is an opportunity, step in. No one is forced to help, but are told of the needs and then they do what they can.

You say you can't afford to donate any dollars? Sometimes a small donation on a regular basis, like a pledge of $10 a month, or a small pledge whenever you manage to have a little extra to put aside works really well. Or perhaps just your help in getting others to donate a sum. Some prefer one big payment and others prefer a small but regular pledge.

Grant writing is currently done by one busy person and more people are encouraged to assist. Not big amounts of time are needed, but some help is needed in one form or another. For this, please contact Irene Bedard at 410-721-2209 or at ibedards@aol.com and see how you can fit in and assist. Grant writing is extremely important and more help is urgently needed. Please check into this.

The CRCC started with four community-minded people and has expanded today into a large base of people willing to see this done sooner rather than later. By attending the general meetings each quarter and/or receiving our newsletters, you can keep abreast of what's happening and express your thoughts and ideas. You really must remember that this isn't about a handful of people, but it's your community center and skate park and everyone in the community should be a part of seeing it become a reality. The whole community should roll up their sleeves, pitch in, and see that this gets accomplished sooner rather than later.

Coming up are two dates and I wish to remind you of and later there will be more.

April 28 - Table at the Crofton Arts and Crafts Fair.
June 22 - Crofton Night at the Baysox.

Next week, a Walk Through the Area.

The Crofton Regional Community Center is a tax-free, nonprofit organization formed to open a community center and a skate park in Crofton. The website is at www.croftonregionalcommunitycenter.net.
