LOP Citizenship Class Graduation Ceremony a Reminder of Why We Celebrate Independence Day

Just six days after Independence Day, 26 students from around the world celebrated completion of CMR's Language Outreach Program's Citizenship Class. The ceremony was held at 7pm on Thursday, July 10, at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Rockville. Ms. Maritza Talavera, who completed the course last year and became an American Citizen in 2014 shared her experiences with the graduating class. A potluck dinner was served after the graduation program.

On Thursday evening, June 12, 2014, the Language Outreach Program (CMR) of Community Ministries of Rockville (CMR) held its 20th annual graduation at Living Faith Lutheran Church. The audience was filled with the family and friends of the 137 adult students.

CMR is pleased to announce our selection for the 2014/2015 Catalogue of Philanthropy out of a field of 200 applicants. Community Ministries of Rockville is recognized as "one of the best small charities in Greater Washington."

There wasn't a cloud in the sky over Memorial Day Weekend and the beautiful weather brought the crowds to the Taste of Rockville at the City's Hometown Holidays. Guests enjoyed specialty dishes prepared by 19 Rockville restaurants. Participating this year were Ambrosia, American Tap Room, Armands, Bon Chon, Buffalo Wild Wings, Carmens, Dawsons Market, Fresh Market, La Tasca, Matt's Kabob, Nantucket's Reef, Oro Pomodoro, Potomac Pizza, Ring of Fire, Rocklands, Seasons 52, Sheba, Spice Xing and The Bean Bag.
