The yard sale is here!!! Thank you to Sue Q and so many Mills Park Drive residents and others who pulled together to make this happen. Thank you to everyone in the neighborhood and from all over Rancho Cordova who donated. A special thanks to FCCP, the Cordova Community Council and Cordova Church of Christ for tables, marketing and handling some logistics. The sale will go from September 16-18 from 8am-5pm at 2958 Mills Park Drive. If you have not yet seen the incredible amount of donated items or the amazing organization that Sue Quackenbush and neighbors put together, watch these videos: (Video # 2 today) and (Video # 1 yesterday).
How to Get Involved over the next 3 Days:
1) Come buy something at the sale (or just come to say “hi”).
2) Volunteer a few hours to help with logistics. Yes, we could still use help.
3) Write a tax-deductible check to “Cordova Community Council”.
4) Be on call for any details that may arise that need immediate attention.
5) Invite your family and friends to the yard sale.
6) Share a video link above via email or on Facebook.
It takes a whole lot of hard work to get things done in the community. Change never happens without intention. Thank you again to all those who have planned, donated, prayed and sweat to make this a reality. Thank you also to those who have not yet done anything, but will soon arise to integrate into the stream of community life. Let’s work hard to raise $2,500+ so we can get a new sign, and thereby rebrand our corner after such a tragic situation.

You want a glimpse of some of the stuff we’ll be selling at the yard sale? Here is a brief video to give a mini preview into only some of what we are offering at the sale. We’ll have way more and this yard sale will be a well-oiled machine thanks to Sue Q and neighbors. We are still accepting donations and we still have slots available for residents to volunteer with logistics on Friday through Sunday.

Come out to the Cordova Towne Jigsaw Party. We are going to make new wooden “Cordova Towne” letters for the northern corner of Croydon Way & Mather Field Road. Watch the video below for more information. Step by step. That’s how we improve our neighborhood. And we do it together.

Everyone gets to play when it comes to helping a neighborhood improve. We all have a part on the team and each player has different abilities, skills, and passions. What is your passion? How can you apply your unique abilities and desires to help add value and improve the community? We’re not talking about giving huge sums of time either. We are all busy. Just think practically what it might look like to offer your two cents for the n’hood. You are unique and you can make a difference in the community simply by being friendly, available relationally to people near you, and helping out here and there.
Case-in-point. Meet an all-star resident named Jen. She gave two hours tonight to help pick out the right plants for tomorrow’s beautification shindig. Not everyone has a green thumb, but because she does, she was able to step forward and provide for all of us in this practical way. She really went out of her way though because she measured planters, took photos, and really brought her knowledge and organizational abilities to the table for us.
Good job Jen, and great job in advance to everyone who makes it out tomorrow.

A handful of residents gathered this morning to do something about graffiti in our neighborhood. We drank coffee and enjoyed forty minutes of conversation. The end result is a small team of residents on a rotating schedule for removing graffiti right away. Way to go!!!
We do need some more residents to jump on board. This is about beautification and community pride, and being on the rotation would essentially mean you’d probably cover one tag per month. Please consider joining us and donating 15 minutes or so per month. All ages are welcome.
A special thank you to Code Enforcement Officer Cindy Borba for coming to our meeting as well as purchasing five paint buckets for us out of her own money. We feel your support Cindy.
