Residents of North College Park – meet at the Pavilion in Glenville Park at 8:30 AM to do your part for Trash Bash. Just show up at 8:30 AM under the pavilion. Note: you do not have to register. NCPNA is registered as a group and we will pick up supplies. We will be picking up trash in our area.

Other activities associated with Trash Bash include:

NCPNA will, as in the past, have our own electronics drop off point. Place electronics items in the truck bed in front of 407 Palomar before 2PM on Saturday (April 24th). We will make one delivery to the recycling location with whatever is in the truck. Please just electronics, no trash or other items.

CONVID-19

As I write this the news is much better than we feared. While things are not yet back to normal, we believe that some of the restrictions will be relaxed soon. We will all have to adjust to a new normal.

Thanks to the great response in the neighborhood and I know that we have been pulling together. Please continue to be aware of your neighbors and be prepared to lend a hand, if you are able, and if not report a problem. Keep checking on your neighbors, particularly the ones who are elderly and live alone. That quick phone call, text or email can make a world of difference.

What a difference a month makes. The virus is having a profound impact on everyone; however, I am confident that will all pull together and get through this.

One of the great benefits of our community is the fact that we can pull together in times like this.

Stay in touch with your neighbors and be alert to any possible problems. A quick phone call, text or email can make a world of difference. We all must go to the store and we can pick up an item or two for a neighbor who can’t get out as easily. You can also make up a plate for a neighbor who is not able to cook.
