Fall 2022: OCA President's Message

Greetings!

It’s officially my second year as President of the Overlea Community Association and we have made so many moves! Check out this article outlining some of strides that have been made here in Overlea. Our Overlea Farmer’s Market is in full swing with new vendors, including beef jerky, tie dyed clothes, yarn, beeswax lotions and so much more. Be sure to stop by every other Saturday morning between 8:30am-12:30pm at 6908 Belair Rd. Our remaining market dates are July 30th, August 13th, August 27th, September 10th, September 24th, October 8th, and October 22nd.

ArtsFest is also upon us! Three days of local vendors, art, performances, a film festival and more! Mark your calendars for August 12th, 13th, and 14th, at Holt Park, located at 34 Elmont Ave.

A huge thank you to everyone who volunteered and attended the Fullerton Fireworks this year🙏. What a fantastic show! Events like these can’t be done without the hard work of MANY volunteers. It was so great to get such a community treasure back in the neighborhood.

If anyone is facing food insecurity this summer, BCPS is offering a free summer food program. Details can be found on their website at www.bcps.org. The closest location is Parkville Middle School. They will offer lunches Monday-Friday from 11-11:30 am. You may also go to www.marylandfoodbank.org, type in your zip code, and view a list of food banks near you. Inflation, job loss, and illness affect us all, please don’t hesitate to reach out for help.

I will end with a reminder to vote in the upcoming election. Non-presidential elections typically have low voter turnout, but this year Maryland elects a new Governor and it’s incredibly important that your voice is heard. Local elections matter, and they tend to have the most impact on our day-to-day life. Thank you for being so invested in your community! Please reach out to get involved.

Melissa Davis, President, Overlea Community Association, president@overleaonline.org
