Final Annual Meeting, for now.... Update

This time counts, by law. We'll be meeting again in the Village Commons Community Center of the Village at Waugh Chapel Shopping Center.

• Time: 7:00 pm
• Date: Thursday, February 25, 2010

There's plenty of parking, and some good restaurants nearby if you want to make an evening of it. Whoever shows up constitutes a quorum!

John L.

Update: We met, we voted, we adjourned! At last! Now the work begins—plenty of homework for the new board to dig into. And several good suggestions from the floor (didn't know floors could talk, did you?) to consider.

The new board of directors will meet for the first time on Monday, March 8 at 7 p.m. See the sign at the entrance for location.

Makin' Whoopee! - At The Library!

At long last, the new meeting room, enlarged parking area, and sundry other improvements are ready for business at the South County Branch of the AA County Public Library. And the party is on! Tomorrow. Starting at 1:00 p.m. In beautiful downtown Deale.

• Enjoy the ShowStoppers from the S. County Senior Center!
• Bop to the sounds of the winner of the High Schools Battle of the Bands!
• Revel in the rythyms of classical poetry! (Hint: think Winnie-the-pooh)
• Wonder at the marvels of a 21st Century library: it's not your Mom's library!

You can download a program for the all-day affair from the library system's website. Show up anytime. Bring the whole family! The Celebration will be in full swing! It'll be a blast!

Snow Notes - February 2010


Lex and Stan Robertson at 1494 Kingsway Court have a long driveway and no reasonable way to clear it. Lex wrote: "Stan and I desperately need help with our driveway..he's getting ready to start clearing with his small scooper, ...." Today, thanks to some helpful neighbors, they're out! Lex reported, "Thanks to Glenn Peed and Charlie Ball, Stan and a mystery person, I'm out and was able to get to work today. Grateful appreciation to all who helped me."

Amy and Steve at 2133 Hallmark Dr. needed someone to shovel out their driveway and walk, preferably with a snow blower.They were "hoping someone has a snowblower and maybe a teenager willing to make some $....we are about shoveled out here." And someone came to the rescue! Amy reported, "I was lucky enough to find a kind neighbor to help."

[And if anyone answers this call for help, please let me, John Ludwigson, know too. I wouldn't mind knowing a willing shoveler. Heaving snow isn't a recommended activity for us 70+ year old geezers!]


And from Ed Rothe whose neighbors dug him out, thanks and a before-and-after photo:
"Nancy and I wish to give a big thank you to our kind neighbors on Branchwood Terrace; Fred, Carl, John & Bob who have worked so hard to keep the cul-de-sac and driveways plowed. Can Spring be here too soon?"
