18th Street Refresh Project

We are pleased to announce our 18th Street Refresh Project for 2021! As Riverbend’s “main street”, this thoroughfare sets the tone of our community. Ensuring it is well-maintained and attractive is important to residents and businesses in the area. We recognize that maintaining these fences in good repair can be a big and expensive task. Given current economic conditions and COVID19 impact we understand that it may be difficult for many residents to address this item. RCA is here to help!

National Volunteer Week April 18-24

The National Volunteer Week theme for 2021, The Value of One, The Power of Many, reflects on the awe-inspiring acts of kindness by millions of individuals AND the magic that happens when we work together towards a common purpose. This past year, we have seen people supporting family, friends, neighbours, and strangers, people standing up to systemic racism, and people sharing insights on how to create a more just and equitable society.
