Roseville Community Center, Inc.


Dear Friends of Roseville,

We are hoping that this letter finds you in good spirits and good health. The purpose of this letter is to inform you of changes that have happened in Roseville during the past year. The Roseville Community Center was established as a not for profit corporation to make use of the former Roseville Elementary School building. Several groups have been able to utilize this wonderful space and it has been a success for our growing community. We are asking for your support, either financially or through other means of contributions.  An account has been set up at the Roseville branch of Morton Community Bank c/o Mary Grant. We are looking forward to offering the community expanded choices for fellowship activities, for health improvement and for a host of other possibilities. We are also thrilled to have our new fire station completed.

Together we can make this a great opportunity for Roseville’s future.

Thank you for your generous support,
