In Case You Missed It Oct. 2014 Edition

If you were unable to attend last night’s LPCA general meeting, here are some highlights:

  • THANK YOU: this year’s festival was a tremendous success and wouldn’t have been possible without the generous support of sponsors and the countless hours from volunteers.
    Communications/Newsletter: if you have editorial ideas for the Nov/Dec issue, please submit them by October 19. Email
  • Dog Park: stay tuned for more information about a November Yappy Hour at the Wine Market.
  • Parks and Beautification: a collection fund to restore the Doda family memorial at Latrobe Park has been established. Visit – no donation is too small!
  • Social – the next major event will be the Holiday party Wednesday, December 10 at the Knights of Columbus. Contact for more information.

Two motions were passed:

  • Support of Rash Field Beach Volleyball Courts: the LPCA will send a letter of support to the City to keep the Baltimore Beach volleyball courts on Rash Field at the Inner Harbor. There is an online petition for individuals to sign themselves. Click here for more information.
