Editorial: No shortage of good deeds in RosemountFrom an arts council to a college Lions Club to a group of middle school students, there are plenty of people doing things to help people in Rosemount
Rosemount is full of people and groups doing good things, and you don’t have to look farther than this issue of the Town Pages for ample evidence.
Consider the front page of this week’s paper. There is a story about Christmas at the Steeple Center, an event being put on by the Rosemount Area Arts Council to bring an old-fashioned Christmas show to the city. It’s a big project, one of several taken on by the comparatively small arts council. So far it has been greeted enthusiastically.
Or, consider the story on page 3 about the Lions Cub at Dakota County Technical College. In its short history the club has already held a number of successful events to help people at DCTC and beyond. The club has offered a chili cook-off. It coordinated a photo session that gave photo subjects a chance to get their pictures taken and DCTC photo students a chance to build their portfolio, and a resume-writing workshop that appears to have paid dividends for the job seekers who took part.
Or, turn back a couple of pages to page 8 and read the story about a group of Rosemount Middle School students collecting hats, gloves and scarves to keep less fortunate classmates warm in the rapidly approaching winter.
These, of course, are just a few examples of the good works that take place on a regular basis in Rosemount. Read this paper at other times and you might see stories about Rosemount Rotary and its STRIVE mentoring program, or even just a group of friends coming together to help someone going through a difficult time.
We like these stories. We think they’re important in a city like Rosemount, and we enjoy bringing them to you.
We offer congratulations to the three groups featured in this week’s issue, and to everyone else doing the same kinds of good works. We hope you keep them up.
