OCA President’s Message

Happy New Year to everyone in Overlea! I hope that folks in our community had a joyous and festive holiday season. The OCA has been moving and shaking, gearing up for our many events in 2023. We also celebrated an amazing Holiday Tree Lighting in December, thanks to volunteers Joe Allen and Brent Ceryes who pulled the occasion together. A HUGE thank you to our sponsors, Mary and Will Geddes, Sippel Electric, Rosedale Volunteer Fire Company, Baltimore County Police, and Baltimore County Parks and Recreation.

Our next community meeting, with both in-person and online options, will be on March 14th at 7 p.m. Be sure to follow us on Facebook for links and updates.

A mighty congratulations to Doris Franz-Poling, OCA board member. Anyone who has ever met Doris, knows that she works INCREDIBLY hard for our community, mostly behind the scenes. She loves Overla and tirelessly advocates on our behalf. Doris’ most recent position was as the Legislative Aide for our outgoing County Councilwoman, Cathy Bevins. When Cathy retired in December, Doris took a new position with the County as the Essex Initiative Community Liaison. We are positive Doris will continue to make great contributions to our neighborhood and surrounding area, for years to come. Thanks Doris!

Our newsletter this quarter focuses on all the cool events we have planned for this year in Overlea. A new three- day Youth Art Show will premier in March, allowing kids ages 6-15 to enter their artwork in a true art show. We’ll also celebrate the Overlea Farmers Market’s 8th year, which kicks off on June 10th; the Fullerton Fireworks on Saturday, July 1st; ArtsFest on August 11th-13th at Holt Park, and so much more!

Melissa Davis, President, Overlea Community Association
