The South Placer group services Rocklin and surrounding areas with its main mission to improve the lives of women and girls in local communities and throughout the world. The South Placer group meets at 5:30 p.m. at R.C. Wiley at 6636 Lonetree Blvd. in Rocklin the first and third Tuesday of each month.
