Membership Drive ($20 per year) and City Budget Presentation (Shhh… There is a raffle too!)

Happy New Year RSM Neighbors! Big Announcement!

Did I say something about a raffle for an Ipad Mini?  See below…

The RSM Board has a number of exciting announcements!  First off, let me say thanks for the support in the past year. We had exciting events like the Easter Egg Hunt and local Art Show.  We forged a better relationship with Berean School, they withdrew their plans for expansion and promised to work with us in the future. Last, we convinced the City to put a fence around El Divisadero Park, clearly establishing it as a resource for the neighborhood, not a part of the school.

We have lots of plans for this year! Annual membership is only $20.

MEMBERSHIP DRIVE – January 18 2-6pm – RSM Swim Club

Please come to our membership drive meeting on January 18th from 2 to 6pm. Meet the Board! But also, come and meet the City Manager Ken Nordhoff. He and his staff are going to make a presentation about the Walnut Creek budget at 4pm. Find out about the fiscal situation in the Walnut Creek and what our City plans to do about balancing the budget.

The raffle? Oh yes! All RSM neighbors who come and either enroll or renew their memberships on the 18th are eligible for the raffle. You must be present to win, and we will draw after the budget presentation. Please come early.

What can you win? So far the prizes include:

  • 2 tickets to the Ruth Bancroft Gardens!
  • 2 tickets to Disneyland!
  • And yes… An Ipad Mini
  • and maybe some more!

Remember you must be present to win!

We have much more planned this year:

  • Quarterly Membership Meetings, featuring a different City Council member to speak on issues in Walnut Creek and answer your questions.
  • Events including the Easter Egg Hunt, Car Show, Halloween event, and more.

If you are on our neighborhood Nextdoor site, you can RSVP for the event here.  If not, we’ll see you there!

See you on the 18th!
