Upcoming Community Events and Meetings

Towson University BIG EVENT 4/21

The TOWSON BIG EVENT:  April 21 from 10 am-12 pm.  Once again, thousands of TU student volunteers will be fanning out into the neighborhoods looking to do good deeds.  We will have 40-50+ Towson University student volunteers and we are hoping that YOU may need help around your yard or house.  We will be sending them out in teams of 2-4 students to any neighbor who could use a hand--weeding, planting, digging, furniture moving, etc!

These TU students need to earn service hour credit and are fun and hardworking. They do need supervision though, just to make sure they don't rip out your prized specimen plants instead of weeds!  You will want to be on site, but let them do the work, (maybe offering them some water if it is a hot day).

There is no criteria for who receives the volunteers--this is strictly a neighbors helping neighbors event and open to all who ask. Young families, single parents, older folks, everyone else--can't we all use a hand?   Towson University is simply trying to create good will in the surrounding neighborhoods. 

Finally, we will need 8-10 adult volunteers to help supervise our TU volunteers in the Community Park, the Secret Steps, the Dixie Entrance Garden.  Please contact Ann Snoeyenbos at annsnoeyenbos@yahoo.com if you can help.

WTNA Spring Picnic, May 5th

Southland Hills Neighbors!  See the Invite from the West Towson Neighborhood Association:

Dear Friends of West Towson,

 The West Towson Neighborhood Association (WTNA) has coordinated with Baltimore County to use the park at BYKOTA for picnic on May 5th starting at 5:00 in the afternoon (weather permitting).  Please feel free to bring a blanket, chairs, food and beverages, and of course your families.  We had originally planned to show a movie but this fell through so we will have music instead.  We will also have a popular local food vendor (So Good BBQ – 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.) that will sell sandwiches as well.
