Rochelle – The Rochelle Area Community Foundation is hosting a grand opening and open house at its new offices at 350 May Mart Drive in Rochelle. The celebration will take place on Thursday, June 20 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
“Our gratitude goes out to Central Bank Illinois for providing the foundation with a wonderful office space as well as their long-time support as a business and employee partner. This is the next step in building a strong foundation for the future,” said Kim Montgomery, executive director for the foundation.
Many individual donors, banks and local businesses provided cash or in-kind donations to help the foundation with renovations and furnishings for the new space. Along with the new office space, the RACF has added staff and established part-time office hours.
“We are so excited to have Tammy Kettleson join our team. Tammy has been a long-time resident of the Rochelle area,” Montgomery added. “Along with her administrative skills and experience, she brings energy and enthusiasm to the job every day. Tammy is a pleasure to work with.”
The Rochelle Area Community Foundation is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the community through charitable giving, encourage a spirit of philanthropy, develop collaborative partnerships and enhance the quality of life in the communities we serve in the RTHS school district.
