Membership news

Over the summer months, a few new people took advantage of the easy online sign-up ability to become members of our growing Rural Root family. It’s very easy to join, as you already know. You can talk to someone involved in RRTC or go to our website and just follow the link to volunteer. As a longer standing member, you might not even realize the extensive website updates that have occurred in recent months. Maybe you would like to reactivate your membership and take on a new role with us? If so, you can scroll through the many types of volunteers we need and use at Rural Root. There are numerous roles to fill, far beyond acting! Read about the possibilities all from the comfort of your computer or mobile device.
