New Ro Cheers!

The coronavirus pandemic has challenged the very core of our community. In response, we are meeting the crisis with resolution and determination, and even more: rising above, with acts of generosity, support and encouragement. This page is dedicated to the residents, organizations, businesses and others who are going above and beyond in proving that we are resilient and always #NewRoStrong.
