BLOCK CAPTAIN/ VOLUNTEER MEETING

All current volunteers and anyone willing to volunteer are asked to attend a meeting for block captains and volunteers. The meeting is scheduled for January 14th at the Miller Library in the Avalon Room from 7 pm to 8:15 pm. Please join us.

An email invitation has been sent to all known volunteers, block captains and event chairs. The purpose of the meeting is to listen to each other and develop a guideline for volunteers -current and future.

If you have served in this capacity in the past, please join us. We would like to hear your thoughts on how we can improve. All are welcome – this is an open meeting. RSVP to James Brown by Friday, January 10, 2014 at jamesbrown_923

TREASURER NEEDED FOR TVOCA

TVOCA is seeking a treasurer to serve the community. The treasurer is in charge of receiving and dispersing community funds for activities, events, and other neighborhood obligations. He or she manages and reports the organization’s finances to the TVOCA Board of Directors and the neighborhood during the meetings. The treasurer is responsible for the annual membership collection process and for filing an annual statement with the MD State Department of Taxation. We are currently in “Good Standing.”

The treasurer should have a basic knowledge of balancing a checkbook and keeping records using financial software like Excel, Microsoft Money or Quickbooks. We currently use Microsoft Money to track our finances.

Craig Fingerman, our current treasurer, estimates the job requires about 25 to 30 hours of his time each year. Craig is available to facilitate a smooth transition. We would like to have known replacement by the March TVOCA meeting so we can present you to the membership and conduct a vote.

This is a great opportunity to strengthen you accounting skills, show volunteer work on your resume, and give back to our community. If you are interested please contact any Board member. Email addresses are listed below.

FINAL CONTROLLED DEER HUNT

The final controlled deer hunt in The David Force Natural Resource Area is scheduled for Wednesday January 15, 2014. Hunters are allowed to use either a bow or shotgun, according to a county release. The hunt hours will be from dawn until noon. Please exercise caution if you are walking near the park that morning.

TREE REMOVAL IN TVO I

Please report the street locations where the County trees are dead, hanging too low, hitting ongoing traffic (especially school buses) or impeding sidewalk access. TVOCA would like to collect as much information as possible. Our goal is to send a list to the County for possible trimmings. Please submit information by January 15, 2014 to Holly Ritter, rittholl.
