Growing Up in the 40s & 50s
A NEW SERIES
LET'S LOOK BACK ON OUR YOUTH through several videos. Most are from a series called "Life in America," and none are from Roseland itself. Though not from our slice of history, they do reflect somewhat accurately what our lives were like. They'll appear here first and later find a permanent home on their own page.
If the video doesn't begin to play on its own, just click on the arrowhead in the middle of its photo.

80TH BIRTHDAY PARTY POSTPHONED
Due to Covid 19 and our desire to protect all of us Seniors our party had been rescheduled until September 18th, 2021 at the Midlothian Country Club. We hated to do this but felt is was the safest thing to do. We're promised extra cake and ice cream to make up for the delay.
NEW PLAN: ROSELAND BEFORE OUR TIME (BOT) & ROSELAND DURING OUR TIME
Too, too many photos so must organize them! We now have two new pages with Roseland pictures One contains photos before 1940 and the other showcases photos after 1940. I invite you to send in any pictures you have hidden away -- photos of buildings, events, parks, stores, anything Roseland. We'll all thank you!Click on the Roseland listing on the left side of this HOME PAGE and choose "BOT" (Before Our Time) and/or "During Our Time" from the fly-out menu which will appear.
ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW BUT ARE
TOO SHY TO ASK
We didn't have the "computer advantage" when we were growing up so many of us are a little timid when approaching this newfangled contraption. With that in mind, a new forum section entitled "All You Need to Know But Are too Shy to Ask" has been created.
The new feature has directions for many of the skills needed to take full advantage of our web site. It even explains how to print those directions so you can have them in front of you as you navigate into new territory.
A second feature explains exactly how to obtain additional help with any problem which may come up. It's really simple: just email me, as site administrator; and I'll get the answer straight from the experts at Class Creator.
So now, with a little bit of determination, you can fully explore the site, send emails, reply to survey questions, comment in forums, and load pictures. Just click on the link below.
