Cashell Road and Norbeck Meadows Park Clean-Up

Our semi-annual road and park clean-up will take place this Sunday, September 27, beginning at 2:00 PM. This date has been carefully chosen so as not to conflict with a scheduled Redskins game! As with past clean-ups, we shall form two teams: the Cashell Road team will meet me at the parking lot of Cashell Elementary School. Folks who prefer to spend their time working in the park should meet up with First Vice President/Environmental Chairperson Dave Miller at the park tennis courts.

Please contact us if you plan to attend. We would like to know how many folks are willing to volunteer. Continue reading Cashell Road and Norbeck Meadows Park Clean-Up

Norbeck Meadows Neighborhood Picnic

The community picnic last Sunday was a smashing success!‚Äč

Our deepest and most heartfelt thanks go out to the volunteers who labored to make the picnic a success. In particular, I especially want to recognize Second Vice President Amy Crawford and husband Andy for their extraordinary work — anything and everything needed for the picnic, including procuring and hauling food, tables, and gas grills; overseeing the setting up and taking down of the picnic site, and making sure that our children's activities (moon bounce and slide) arrived on schedule.  The volunteer service provided by Amy and Andy for throughout the year truly go "above and beyond" in assuring the success of our Community's activities.  I also want to thank head chef Jack Meyer and his intrepid band of assistants (Andy Crawford, Matt Zaborsky, and yours truly) for preparing gourmet hamburgers, cheeseburgers, and hotdogs for the175 community residents and guests who attended our picnic.  Jack manned his grill for the entire time that we served food at the picnic.  And finally, our thanks to Donna Page who procured the kegs of beer and manned the admission table.
