With resident contributions like yours, RVMS can continue the work of making Roslindale Village a unique and vibrant neighborhood business district where visitors, friends, and neighbors shop, eat, play, and collaborate.
During our Spring Appeal, we’ll be sharing stories of volunteers, residents, and business owners about what being a part of RVMS and the Roslindale community means to them.
