Our Home: Russell Homecoming Weekend (2021)

Highlighted Events

Impact Week

The first Russell: A Place of Promise impact report was released in April of 2021 to showcase the impact of the project up until that point. The 2018-2021 RPOP Impact Report details its history, successes, challenges, and goals and highlights the people and organizations that have paved the way. Special emphasis is placed on the people and places that continue to make the Russell community special and allow RPOP to expand.
