Rocket History

The attached files are written by Mary Karasinski founder of the Richmond Rockets.  She provides a great story of how the Richmond Rockets were born.

-"On our own, each of us is good. Together we're better.  It's a great feeling knowing you're not alone out there.  We count on one another for support, motivation, inspiration".
