Summer 2024: OCA President's Message

Dear Overlea Community,

This is my last address to you as president of the community association and it has been an honor to act in this role. I will continue serving on our board, working diligently for the betterment of this community.

As you have (hopefully) seen, there is a project update on the Maryland Route 1 Reconstruction Project on Wednesday, May 16th at the Overlea/Fullerton Rec Center from 5pm- 7pm. This Open House is an opportunity for community members to see detailed maps and displays of the proposed project. MDOT is soliciting community feedback and will be available to answer questions. A HUGE thank you to so many folks at the state and county level for pushing this revitalization project forward. Senator Kathy Klausmeier in particular, who lead the charge in our more recent requests for assistance.

As we roll into my favorite time of year, I am so pleased to say that The Overlea Farmer’s Market is returning to celebrate our 10th Year!! The incredible Jessica Loveless has taken over management of the market this year and she has so many fun things in store. Opening day is June 8th, so be sure to stop by! We cannot run this market without the community, and I am grateful we can continue this amazing market that brings so much value to the community.

Our next general meeting will be Tuesday, June 4th at 7pm, at the Natural History Society of Maryland. It’s the time of year we have annual elections, and I hope you will help me welcome in our new executive board! If you are interested in joining a community board and making real changes in your neighborhood– now is the time!! We have so many great ways for folks to contribute, both large and small. Finally, I want to give a gigantic thank you to all the board members and volunteers who work countless hours to make events like our tree lighting, ArtsFest, and Farmer’s Market continue to thrive. Every month our board gathers to plan, strategize, and discuss issues impacting our neighborhood. They give their time to make this a better place to live and I am incredibly grateful. Thanks for a great three years!

Melissa Davis
