ROLESVILLE — The town of Rolesville has shared a number of upcoming events and activities residents may be interested in.
Fall seed packets: The Wake County Northern Regional Center staff and volunteers got together for a service project to help the community. They put together seed starter packets (seeds, dirt, and peat pot) for both collards and cabbage plants and we have some of those available at Rolesville town hall if anyone wants some. They are free so just come on by and they will pass them out while supplies last.
Children’s bike rodeo: The Rolesville Police Department wants to make sure all kids ages 4-14 are safe and knowledgeable about bicycle safety. On Sept. 10 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 102 Southtown Circle, officers will be on hand to teach a little bit of bicycle safety, get to know the kids in the community, distribute free helmets (while supplies last), and more. The event is sponsored by Pie-Zano’s. Contact the police department at 919-556-7226 with any questions.
Operation Medicine Drop: Want to dispose of your expired and unused medicine? Do it the right way.
