The Rosemoor Connection


As we get ourselves ready for a new and exciting 2016, we think of what a fantastic year 2015 was. We partnered with Neighbor Works to give us the abundance of flowering gardens filled with marigolds, various grasses, yucca, coleus, morning glory and more. I really think we outdid ourselves but we still have a long way to go.
We need your help!! Please help us by volunteering your time and of course money to maintain and keep our gardens going. If you like it now, just wait, there is still more to come with your help. You can call us at 773-264-0783 (Rosemoor Community Association).
Looking to get our hands dirty in 2016!!!


Again, please come out next year and help us, either by volunteering your time, or providing us with flowers or even funds.
