Roland Pumpkin Fair Update

From the Pumpkin Fair Committee

 

There will be a Giant Pumpkin Weigh off only this year - all other fair festivities and activities will be on hold until next fall.

The committee met tonight and have decided, in an abundance of caution and due to uncertainty around Covid 19 regulations this fall, to postpone our 30th anniversary festivities scheduled for October 2020. We will, however, still have our weigh off on Saturday October 3rd with location and format to be determined. Our prizes will be reduced this year as well, hopefully resuming to normal in 2021.

If you have any questions, please contact a member of the committee. 

Library Memberships

Library Memberships

Dog Walking 101

Dog Walking 101

  • Always walk your dog on the leash, it is for their protection, as much as yours.
  • Take a supply of doggie bags with you when you walk, or better yet, put a doggie bag dispenser on your leash, then you will never be caught unprepared.  Doggie bags are available at your local pet or dollar store, you can even choose bio-degradable or scented bags!

How to use a doggie bag

  • Place your hand inside the bag, like you are putting on a glove.
  • Make a claw-like circle with your fingers and then get as far under the "poo-pile" as possible before lifting up.
  • As you are picking up the "treasure" with one hand, pull the top edge of the bag down and round with the other hand.
  • The poo is contained, just tie a knot and dispose of the bag in your trash bin when you get home.

It works great,
no messy fingers or tools to clean
and...

Your Neighbors will love you!

Genealogy & Local History Resourses


Roland Roots

Most likely the best resource you will ever find for our area.   Worthy of praise, and Many Thanks to the individuals that work endlessly on this project.  

The Fairview, Bethel and Myrtle cemeteries, final resting places for many of the original settlers of the Roland area.   "The burial records found on this website are not limited to tombstone inscriptions, they reflect the information available from the records of each cemetery. It is acknowledged that despite every effort some burials may never be identified. A database has been included identifying wherever possible the names of the parents of the deceased and, if applicable, any spouse or children. Common ancestors are also included so relationships between those interred may be traced."
