Our Rossmoor - Celebrating 65 Exceptional Years

Our Rossmoor Magazine

Our Rossmoor is the official print publication of the Rossmoor Homeowners Association. Originally, back in 1957, the newsletter was called the Rossmoor Signature News and was hand-typed and printed, and mailed as a letter to members of the Association each month. Since that time it has been published in varying formats and frequencies, but its purpose has always been the same: to keep Rossmoor residents informed.

Today, Our Rossmoor is an annual publication recapping the previous year’s activities with feature stories on everything Rossmoor: fun events (celebrations, festivals, scholarship & writing contests, etc.), important neighborhood topics and issues, and of course our regular topical columns. We moved to an annual issue to reduce our printing and mailing costs and to do our part in reducing waste and protecting our environment. Our Association has a small carbon footprint by design and eliminating three printed magazines each year reduces it further.

Online Articles – A great way to keep Our Rossmoor neighborhood in touch.

With most people now receiving their news and information online, we are publishing more articles and stories on our website, giving us two additional advantages. First, the stories and articles can be published more frequently and while a print publication has space limits, there are effectively none for our site. We can publish more photos and include videos that a print magazine just cannot support.

If you’d like to contribute a story or interesting tidbit for this Our Rossmoor website, we’d love to hear from you. Contact us here and share your thoughts. Who knows, you could be recognized as one of our writers.

Holocaust survivor Piri Katz and her daughter, Cherol. Piri’s Hope – Piri Katz’s Holocaust Survival Story - Lamenting strains of the Yiddish prayer stirred darkness from the corners of my soul.
