Community Association Plants Garden at Fire/EMS Station
Next time you drive down Roanoke Avenue past our (Riverdale Heights) firehouse take a moment to look at the newly created gardens! It was a pleasure working to improve the grounds of RHVFD; made us all proud! Not only did we create beautiful gardens, but the garden above the parking lot was strategically placed to absorb water from the underground spring. You may notice the banner that proudly announces that our community association is responsible for coordinating the work (thanks for the banner, Beth!). Look for our new flagpole soon that will display American and Maryland flags. Once installed, we will plan a small ceremony as we raise the flags for the first time.
Special thanks to our Clean Up Green Up team:
Gerald Washington (tilled both areas for us)
Beth Reed (coordinated event)
Cindy Daymont (coordinated event)
Bobby Goninan (President of RHVFD)
District I Police:
Officer Qui Nguyen
Wanda Brooks from Councilmember Olson's office stopped by with her granddaughter Morgan to offer support. We planned well, worked hard, accomplished much, and all had a great time! See attached pictures. Hope you can join us for our next event.
