Rockford’s community work day tomorrow
By Crystal Glenn
Tomorrow morning, bright and early at 8, volunteers from around Rockford will begin working together to beautify the community.
The plans to begin a revitalization project in Rockford began unfolding at the first of the year and the beginning of Mayor Scott White’s term. Together, White and the Town Council worked to secure grant funding to add a bit of beauty to the town.
A $1,200 grant was awarded to the town by the Coosa County Extension Office and the Resource Conservation and Development, or RC&D, Council. The town will initially spend the funds to complete the project, and the grant funds will reimburse the cost of the project up to $1,200.
The call for volunteers for Rockford’s work day went out back in February. Residents from Rockford have signed up to participate in a project that will include installing flower beds and making a community vegetable garden.
The gardens will be planted near the new Rockford Senior Center and Event Center. Some flower beds will also be planted in the town’s park.
More grant funds will be rolling in, as well. A grant through Alabama Power Company for $1,000 is processing and soon to be approved to continue beautification efforts.
A grant totaling $2,500 will be used to update the “Welcome to Rockford” signs on U.S. Highway 231 and add two new signs west and east of town on Alabama Highway 22.
Anyone interested in being a part of Rockford’s work day should show up tomorrow at 8 a.m. at the Event Center. All necessary supplies have been purchased.
This is sure to be a wonderful day and an opportunity to come together as a community to add a little bit of beauty for all to enjoy.
