Donation to Needy Family

Last night, Claire I George Owens and I delivered our Christmas food basket to the Hunt Family.

The Hunt family (Mom, Dad, and four daughters) was very grateful to receive the basket. Mrs. Hunt told us how much her daughters appreciated and enjoyed the basket we brought at Thanksgiving and how much they were looking forward to Christmas!

THANK YOU for your kind and generous donations! Attached is a photo of most of the donations we received - there were more, but they wouldn't fit on the table!

Have a Happy Holiday and Best Wishes for 2012!

Minutes - December 10, 2011 Meeting

ODNA Meeting
Saturday, December 10, 2011
10am at the Dundalk Community Center

1. Thanksgiving food delivery was made to our “adopted” family on a very rainy Tuesday night. Thanks to Claire and George Owens and their grandson Kyle for all of their help in collecting and delivering the items

We are collecting items for a Christmas basket of food to be delivered to our “adopted” family on December 22nd. Donations may be dropped of with Claire and George Owens at 23 Township or Becky Terjung at 92 Kentway. We already have a turkey, but we still need non-perishable pantry/toiletry items as well as cranberry sauce, gravy, canned vegetables and fruit and non-perishable food items (celery, onions, potatoes, apples, oranges, and rolls) to round out Christmas dinner.

• If you are planning to donate a perishable item, let me ( or 410-288-3323) know what you will be dropping off.
• Look for updates about needed items as we closer to the delivery date.

All donations are needed by DECEMBER 21st, so we have time to package them up for delivery.

2. Adopt a road: (Dundalk Avenue from Willow Spring down to around Saint Matthews Church.) Our next Clean Up day is Saturday, January 21st beginning at 9am. We will meet at McDonalds at 8:30am. Obviously, this clean up is very weather dependent and any decision to cancel will be made by Thursday, January 19th. Let’s hope for a sunny day with temps in the 40’s!

3. Holiday Potluck: Becky will get in touch with the Masonic Hall to see about open dates in the first two weeks of January. We are going to try for a Thursday or Friday and will start at 6:30/7pm. We will need a volunteer or two to coordinate this event. If you would like to help, contact Becky at or 410-288-3323.

4. Bylaw review committee: We need to review our bylaws with respect to term limits, language, etc. This also includes a question about whether we will include the President Streets within our boundaries.
• Glenn will follow up with Northwood-Holabird about whether they include the President Streets.
• We want to have progress on this review and will report back at our February meeting.

5. Welcome Bags: We could use volunteers to coordinate getting some new materials and distributing the bags.

Elections are coming in May! Now is the time to get involved and to have your voice heard. Think about stepping up and taking a position on the Executive Board. Have a question about a position? Just ask!

Our next meeting is Wednesday, January 11th at 7pm in the Dundalk Community Center!*
* Note: In the case of inclement weather, if county schools are closed, the Dundalk Community Center is closed as well
