Rocheport Hall of Fame
There will be a meeting on March 4, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. at the Rocheport Community Hall to discuss establishing a "Rocheport Hall of Fame." Rocheport has had many outstanding citizens since it was established and we think it is time to recognize some of these folks.
The idea originated with the Friends of Rocheport but the entire community is invited to the meeting to discuss this idea and listen to any suggestions for those who should be honored. You do not have to be a member of the Friends of Rocheport to attend and participate in the discussion!!!
We hope you will join us!!!
