President of RRA Board of Directors
The hot topic currently is the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) which has lead to a National State of Emergency to be declared.
Is the response too great? Not enough? There’s been compelling arguments each way.
Regardless of its comparison to other illnesses, it’s important to exercise caution. This strain of the coronavirus is very contagious and there is not currently a vaccine available to aid in its prevention. So even if illnesses such as this will not adversely affect your own health, you are still capable of passing it along to someone who will be severely impacted if they contract it.
This will lead to further cancellations and inconveniences until its spread is under control. Until that time, please exercise caution. If you are unsure of your own health or concerned about the health of others, please don’t take the chance and stay home.
RomeRock Association and the Coronavirus
Your RomeRock Association staff and Board of Directors are watching closely as our health situation unfolds. The safety of our staff and, you, the residents is our number one priority. As of now, our office hours remain the same. We will let you know immediately if that changes.
Decisions on future meetings; Monthly Board Meeting, Annual Association Meeting, Informational Meetings, Club and organizational meetings will be adjusted as required by our government and our health situation. This may mean rescheduling or cancelling; dependent on the situation.
We will continue to communicate through our Eblast. Please watch for updates. In the meantime, please stay safe, practice good health hygiene, follow the health and quarantine guidelines in place, help your neighbors when you can and do what you always do….make this a safe and awesome community.

Last Saturday, the Roaming Shores Polar Bear Club held its 15th Annual Polar Bear Plunge. Plungers from Grand Valley, Pymatuning, and Jefferson schools along with several other crazy area participants took the icy plunge into Lake Roaming Rock to raise money for several local charities. Grand Valley Schools were the winners this year!
Thanks to everyone from the Polar Bear Club for all of their hard work to make this happen and to our participants, sponsors, and volunteers who made it a success!
I would also like to thank (I think ) Leeann, Pat, Al, Laurie and Mindy for sponsoring me for the plunge! I think I’m finally thawed out lol!

We had a lot of fun during our last event a couple years ago! Make something decorative for your home or a nice gift for someone else.
We have candles that drip different colors when lit and will be using the wine bottles as the base.( You can also bring your own wine bottles if you have some that you particularly like.)
We will also be enjoying wine and appetizers while our candles are melting. Please BYOB.
Feel free to bring something to share.
Living in northeast Ohio, we have all seen our share of extreme weather. Fortunately, snow storms and frigid temperatures are predictable and advance warnings give us extra time to be sure we are prepared. Carbon monoxide poisoning, car accidents, hypothermia, and frostbite are all heightened risks at this time of the year. Be sure your home is ready for the cold by repairing caulking, weatherstripping and insulation especially around pipes to prevent freezing. Be sure generators are working properly and are used only in safe locations. Test all smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and replace the batteries if you did not already do so at daylight savings time. Gather extra supplies including food, water, medications and batteries in case you need to stay at home for several days. And, don’t forget food and medicines for pets. Keep emergency supplies in your car such as a blanket, flashlight, bottled water and non-perishable snacks. And, keep your gas tank at least one-half full. When you do go out, be prepared for the worst by wearing multiple layers of clothing and having a charged cell phone with you. Learn and watch for signs of frostbite and hypothermia, and seek treatment right away if needed. The link below provided by FEMA will offer many more suggestions for winter safety. The RSCPC wants you to stay warm and stay safe!
