2014 MEMBERSHIP DRIVE
TVO I households should have received the 2014 "neighborhood investment" invoices. Our $75 membership is the lowest investment of all the neighboring communities. A small investment to protect your neighborhood. Please remit your invoice by May 31, 2014. Our goal is 100% remittance. Thanks in advance.

ANNUAL EGG HUNT

Thanks to Lisa Delmonte (Pinehurst Ct.) and her group of volunteers for putting together a wonderful event. Hundreds of candy filled eggs were hidden in three sections of the park. The kids were divided by ages to search for eggs. It was quite the site to see the mad rush to get the eggs.

It was great to see so many neighbors out on that nice spring day. Thanks again to Lisa and her crew for their efforts this year and years past.

GRASS AND YARD TRIMMINGS
Please visit the Howard County web site ( www.co.ho.md.us) for lots of good information on disposing of yard debris. For grass clippings they suggest "grass cycling" which is leaving the clippings on your lawn. This returns nutrients to the soil and improves lawn quality. If you do not want to do this then they urge you to bag them in paper not plastic. Place curbside for pick up on our recycling day.

COMMUNITY STEWARDSHIP

Each year, winter months take its toll on local nonprofit organizations. This winter was tougher than most due to the severity of the cold weather. Some expenses like snow removal more than tripled for some organizations and food banks took a big hit. There are numerous organizations that could use your time and or financial contributions to restore their budgets. Please think about your shelters, food banks, churches, nursing homes, and all organizations that rely on us, the public, to keep them operating. Thanks to Lyman Goon (Greenbriar Court) for the reminder that we can and should help out. Volunteer or donate today!
