It is time to RISE! at Roseland
Published 10:51 am Tuesday, July 5, 2022
The Roseland Institute for Summer Enrichment (RISE!) will convene July 11-21 at the Roseland Community Center on Peake Street for children ages 6-13. The program this year features several trips and visits by guest artists and speakers, in addition to the usual arts, crafts, sports activities, free time for reading and writing, and community engagement projects that focus on Tryon’s historic Eastside.
The program will be directed again this year by Latisha Miller (Miss T), a product of Roseland and an employee of Henderson County Family Services. She will be assisted by several program assistants and volunteers. A number of improvements have been made to the facility over the last two years, most recently new signage and lighting, surveillance cameras, kitchen upgrades, and additions to the Reading Room and playgrounds.
There is no charge for participants, as the program has been generously supported by the Polk County Community Foundation, the Unitarian Universalist Church of the Foothills, the Sansbury Family Foundation, Eastside churches and area businesses. We all look forward to continuing the grand tradition of summer programs for youth at Roseland.
