VOLUNTEERS MAKE A VISIBLE DIFFERENCE

After a very busy summer season filled with planting and painting along the Belair Road corridor, the Overlea Beautification Committee chose to devote its time to a much needed landscaping project at the Overlea Chapel United Methodist Church on Cedonia Avenue.
It took 5 days of hard work and 10 trips to the landfill to remove the overgrown shubbery, trees and weeds. Then new donated shrubs and colorful chysanthemums were planted. The curbs got a new paint job as well and the old sign got a partial face-lift.
This historic neighborhood church graces the Overlea region with it’s beautiful white steeple and serves as a landmark for it’s community. Overlea Methodist Church opens it’s doors to events and ideas to better serve the residents of Overlea. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend their weekly Sunday service at 9:30 a.m.
The Overlea Beautification Committee is an all-volunteer group. The plantings for this project were all donated by church and community members.
