Five years ago on August 28, Vermonters experienced the real meaning of community. Before the floodwaters of Tropical Storm Irene receded, the helping hands of friends and neighbors were hard at work saving lives and salvaging what was salvageable. In recognition of the generous spirit that rose from the hearts of people who volunteered to rebuild our community, the Rebuild Rochester Foundation, Inc. (RRF), together with local community organizations, is celebrating Community Volunteerism on the fifth anniversary of Irene, Sunday, August 28 from 11:30 am to 6:00 pm.
