On The Agenda: February 2019
The association will not meet in February.
Winter is here. If the weather is calling for snow, please park on one side of the street to get as many cars off your street so the snowplows can clear it. This is especially important on some of the narrow streets in Beltsville. A special notice to neighbors on Wicomico off Montgomery leading to Beltsville Academy: the snowplows need to clear your street so the school buses can get to the school. Neighbors in Beltsville Heights (Quimby, Lincoln, Naples, Olympia, etc.) plus 34th, 35th, and Kenny should park on the even side of the street so the snowplows, fire trucks, and ambulances can drive down your streets during a snowstorm. I hate to say this, but park on your front yards if that is what it takes to clear the streets of cars and trucks so the snowplows can plow your streets. If the streets cannot be plowed, the fire trucks and ambulances cannot get to your home. Clearing streets and fire hydrants during a snow or ice storm can save someone's life—minutes matter for fire trucks, ambulances, and police to respond.
There will be a fundraiser for the Police Explorers at District 6. Old Line Fine Wine, Sprits & Bistro is hosting a fundraising dinner on February 20, 2019. Let the bistro serve dinner while you help support the Police Explorers. Ten percent of food proceeds between 5–9 pm will be donated to the District 6 Police Explorers. Be sure to tell your waiter you are there to support the Police Explorers.
