Council’s Corner

Welcome to November, the month to reflect and focus on gratitude!

I would like to share my gratitude for the following:

  • The Arts Council—for a great first year of “Concerts in the Park!” I can’t wait for next year.
  • Roy Complex staff and fundraising committee— making great progress! Spread the word and donate using the QR code in the Parks & Rec section.
  • Our dedicated city staff—great events and public safety.
  • Our committed and involved citizens.

Kudos to our many citizen volunteers and their successful recent events (hundreds participated):

  • Cleanup after Roy Days
  • Cleanup and rejuvenation of our City Office and Public Works buildings
  • 911 projects 3⁄4
    • 4000 pantry packs assembled 3⁄4
    • 5k run with proceeds to first responders (congrats to Roy first responders for winning Clinton and taking the trophy) 3⁄4
    • 20 gaylords (48” x 40” x 36”) of food donated

Volunteerism is associated with gratitude, trust, and well-being. Thanks for being involved! Check out additional opportunities and sign up on Here are some highlights:
