The board of your Roland Park Civic League would like to wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving. I want to personally thank this wonderful community for its outpouring of generosity to our recent food drive. Literally every inch of my car was packed to the brim with bags and boxes of food along with coolers filled with turkeys and hams. We had so many donations, we needed a second car, and luckily our office manager, Shari Hash, came to the rescue. It is this connectedness of community that we must continue to strive to meet every day.

So, thus begins this wonderful season of thanks and giving. Let’s all commit to looking up from our phones and saying hello to our neighbors. Check in on them and make sure they are OK and have what they need. Take an extra second to smile and say hello to someone on the sidewalk. I guarantee this will make your holidays, and someone else’s, even brighter!
