New! ‘Big Blue House’ Building Maintenance Committee  Now that we have our own place, we need to take care of it.  We’re forming a Building Maintenance Committee of six to eight folks who need to manage and plan, not necessarily do the work. The committee will be responsible for the general maintenance and care of the new Big Blue House building and grounds within our lease agreement.  Ideally, we’d love to see a good mix of folks with experience managing and planning projects, handling issues, making repairs, etc. be on this very important team.  Reporting to the RCCC Board of Directors, the advisory committee will give a quarterly status report on the facility, grounds and needs for funding.  If you want to be considered for this committee, please email Whitney Laning at admin@rowlettcitizencorps.org

Support for Big Blue House 

We want TOOLS!  We’re building a workroom at the Big Blue House, and we need tools that are in good working condition. Tools such as ladders, socket sets, wrenches, screw drivers, pliers, rolling chest, power tools, creeper, etc.  If you have extras, and are looking to donate them, please get in touch with Greg Bass at greg.bass1@verizon.net to arrange the donation. 


Donations Welcome The addition of the Big Blue House has put a strain on RCCC’s budget for this year.  While we believe funding will be better in this next budget, for the time being we’re short on funds.  If you would like to consider a tax-deductible donation to help bolster our reserves, please go to https://rccc-100286.square.site/  Thank you for your consideration.  Please contact Whitney Laning at admin@rowlettcitizencorps.org for questions for concerns. 

General Reminder 

   Please track your hours!  The heartbeat of every organization is its volunteers and we need to the service hours you contribute.  In the first six months of this year alone, you logged nearly 8,000 service hours for Rowlett CERT, Explorers, ARES and Fire Corps.  And even more hours are logged in separate systems for VIPS and EastTex CERT.  All tallied we're headed for another calendar year of over 25,000 service hours for the RCCC overall.  That's tremendous and we thank you for your commitment and dedication to our community.  

Log your hours at https://www.trackitforward.com/site/rowlett-citizen-corps-council   If you have any problems getting into the system, email JP@theprescotts.info for assistance.
