What’s Happening in the Square
There’s always something going on in the neighborhood! Check back often for new events and updates about our community.
Everybody loves a party — a reason to get dressed up, be silly and make new friends! Join the RSCA for a free, family friendly member event, at the Regent Square Movie Theater on Oct 19th from 1:00 PM-3:30 PM . There will be a parade and prizes for best costume. The best part of the event will be the Halloween themed movie and free popcorn! The RSCA will also hold their (short) Annual Board Meeting at the event. Neighborhoods are safer when folks know one another, and nothing brings people together like a fun common cause. We hope to see you there!
1:00-1:30 Parade/Kid Activity
1:30-1:45 Board Meeting
1:45-3:30 Halloween Movie – Kid Friendly! (Will announce the movie soon)
Free to RSCA Members
Non-members: Individuals $5; Families $10. Donations welcome!
Our next community activity will be holiday lighting for the business districts in Regent Square and holiday toy drive. Your membership, as well as other donations help make programs like these possible.
The Civic Association has been regularly sponsoring clean-ups of the Parkway intersection (I-376 and South Braddock Avenue) several times each year to keep this major gateway to our neighborhood well-groomed and welcoming. The next clean-up is schedule for Sunday, November 3rd at 8:30AM with volunteers to meet at the lower parking lot of the CLASS building at 1400 South Braddock Avenue. To help us plan for vests, gloves, etc., please contact Jon Danzak at 412.241.2345 or email@example.com to volunteer. Gloves, safety vests, water and some breakfast goodies will be provided. The clean-up will happen, rain or shine with the exception of an extremely heavy downpour or thunderstorm.
This event is a great way to keep one of the gateways to Regent Square attractive and welcoming. It’s also a good way that you can do something practical for the environment, preventing trash from ended up in the park or storm sewer which dumps it into Nine Mile Run. It’s also a good way to get some gentle bend-and-stretch exercise as well as a good walkabout at the extensive intersection.
We hope that you’ll join us to help keep Regent Square clean!
RSCA ENDLESS SUMMER PARTY WAS A SUCCESS!
Thank you to everyone that came out on July 13th for an afternoon full of great music, neighbors, food and drink! This event, along with others, are the main contributors to funds that we use for initiatives throughout the year - the biggest being the holiday lights hung along Braddock Avenue. We look forward to planning more events like this in the future!
In the past year, the Regent Square Civic Association board has completed a small set of revisions to the bylaws to keep them current with the mission of the organization. We share the updated bylaws and request that you take one moment to review and approve the changes that we have made. The RSCA governance rules require that resident members approve any bylaw changes.
Summary of changes to Bylaws:
The only change was to update the membership paragraph to change “regular member” to “constituent” to avoid confusion about who is or is not a member but yet legitimately claim that the organization has a large constituency. The paragraph before (3.14.1) was amended to reflect the sentiment that the RSCA is an inclusive organization and encourages all to become contributing members. It reads as follows:
The RSCA seeks to be an inclusive organization and considers all residents of Regent Square to be community neighbors. The RSCA encourages all individuals, families and businesses to become contributing members to further the mission of the RSCA.
Constituents - all persons who are residents of Regent Square or persons who own and operate a business within Regent Square shall be considered constituents.
Contributing Members - all persons who pay dues as defined by the Membership Committee shall be considered contributing members.
Emeritus Member - a past RSCA board member who is requested to serve as a mentor to newly elected board member/s. This person does not have voting rights other than a regular RSCA member.
In order to provide your vote of support for the revised bylaws, please fill out the following Survey Monkey survey:
The RSCA takes great pride in helping and contributing towards the Regent Square community. We are always looking for others to step in and help us out! From the quarterly litter pick-up at the 376 Interchange to the Second Saturdays events, we would love to engage with our neighbors to make these events happen. Send us an email or reach out on social media!
