Our March meeting represented the beginning of the Sligo Woods 2017 Fiscal Year (ours begins on April 1), and with that, those present elected several new board members.
Your new board consists of:
President – Laura Mol
Vice President – Mary Moore
Treasurer – Lashon Lissimore
Secretary – Gwen Shinko
At Large Board Member – Sanjida Rangwala
At Large Board Member – Aileen Schulte
President Ex Officio – Joe Fox
We would like to extend our TREMENDOUS thanks to Jasmine Kuzner, who served as secretary, and before that on the formation committee that stood up what we now have, so she has been involved continuously for the last three years. We have a better community because of all of her work.
Join us for the Sligo Woods 3rd Annual Halloween Parade!
Date: Monday, October 31, 2016
Time: Meet: 5:30pm Parade: 5:45pm-6:15pm
Where: Meet in front of 711 Dryden, at the corner with Calumet. (Thanks to Sanjida and Tim for offering their front lawn!) The route will be a couple of blocks longer this year, to allow for more folks to join us. (A map of the route will be posted here shortly.)
What: The young and young-at-heart of Sligo Woods are called to participate in our annual neighborhood Halloween Parade! Costumed participants must be accompanied by a parent. Parade participants will march on sidewalk. Strollers, pets (especially if they are costumed!) are all welcome to join the fun! We would love to see all neighbors out cheering for the parade.
Sligo Woods is having our first official Community Yard Sale, on September 24. (Rain date, September 25)
If you’d like to participate in the sale, please e-mail Mary at email@example.com
Maps with participating sellers will be available the day of the sale at the corners of Gabel at Gregory, and Justin at Gilmoure.
Just a reminder that the Sligo Woods Community Picnic is happening on Sunday, Aug. 28th from 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm at the soccer field behind the Karasik Center (10611 Tenbrook Drive). Bring some food to share or just a picnic lunch fro you and your guests. There’s a playground for the kids and a soccer field and basketball court. Hope to see you there!
In order to better understand the coming “Green Streets” projects, the Sligo Woods Civic Association is co-sponsoring a Sunday afternoon gathering with project staff from the County’s Department of Environmental Protection. This will be an informal, outdoor event, walking some of the streets where project locations are under consideration.

DEP project manager, Mr Ryan Gardiner, says: “There will be no new information presented [beyond the presentation and maps from the November public meeting], but there will be an opportunity to discuss some specific locations, as well as to ask and answer questions.”
Everyone in the neighborhood is welcome to attend and participate.
Questions? Call Ryan Gardiner at (301) 479-1265 or contact Laura Mol of the Environment Committee of the Civic Association at (301) 681-9686 or LauraMolMail |at|gmail |dot|com. More information about “Green Streets” is on the Civic Association’s post.
In the current phase of this project, the County’s Department of Environmental Protection (MoCo DEP) welcomes comments and suggestions from residents of our neighborhood—especially by the end of March 2016, when technical planning will intensify. There will be later opportunities for public comment, but comments are most helpful at the earlier stage.
The first round of the proposals for our neighborhood can be found here (note that only about half of the ~130 locations shown will, in the end, be selected):
