Spring 2023: OCA President's Message

Happy Spring!

As always, Overlea is the place to be this spring! Our beloved farmer’s market will celebrate its 8th year 😯 starting on Saturday June 10th from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Opening Day will see an amazing variety of new and old vendors, including pasture raised chicken, pork, eggs, jams, seasonal produce, seedlings, bread, artists and so much more! The fun continues every other Saturday all summer long, through October.

Our 3rd annual Taste of Overlea potluck was a tremendous success. Neighbors from all over Overlea brought delicious treats to share. A special thanks to Doris Poling 👏 for putting this great event together. We look forward to Neighbors Night Out in August to once again come together in food and fellowship. Stay tuned for more details!

We are also thrilled that Rosedale Federal Savings and Loan has once again provided funding for our flowerpots along Belair Road. This is the tenth year they have supported this initiative that helps beautify our stretch of Belair Road. Thank you, Rosedale!

The Natural History Society is also celebrating World 🐢Turtle Day on May 21st, a FREE event that will include a meet and greet with over a dozen different species, exploration of fossils, and information about conservation efforts for these amazing creatures. Check it out, along with other incredible programs offered at this community treasure.

I had the pleasure to speak, alongside many other citizens of the 6th district, at our Baltimore County Budget Town Hall. The Overlea Community Association will continue to advocate for positive change along Belair Road. Community members must remain vocal to our elected representatives regarding this issue. We NEED ADA compliant sidewalks, proper drainage, and intentional business development to make Overlea an even better place to live and work.

This summer we hope to see more Overlea neighbors enjoying some of the terrific events scheduled in the neighborhood. Spend some time at Holt Park, take in some bird watching at the NHS, and stop by the Farmer’s Market community table and say hello!
