What a great time we had at the December meeting of the RPCC

RPCC business included updates from SDFD, Jimmie Slack of Councilwoman Myrtle Cole's office, Officer Terry Hoskins, Jannell Jackson of Assembly Member Shirley Weber's office and Darnisha Hunter from Mayor Falconer's office.

Officer Hoskins reported the apprehension of a parolee who was caught stealing over 25 UPS packages from neighborhoods in San Diego. Descriptions from neighbors using the NextDoor app were used to identify the suspect. Great job using NextDoor as an online Neighborhood Watch! Lilly, the new principal at

Rolando Park elementary introduced herself to our community.

Lots of holiday gifts were donated by Rolando Park residents for teens at the Polinsky's Children Center.

Many residents attending tonight's festivities won Chargers tickets and some won parking passes to next Sunday's game. These box seat tickets/passes were generously given to us by Jimmie Slack, Myrtle Cole and the Mayor's office for all of the hard work accomplished this year building our Rolando Park community.

From everyone in the Rolando Park Community Council, we wish you a wonderful and memorable holiday season!
