Halloween is over, fall is in full swing, and the holiday season is upon us. Remember to check in with your elderly neighbors, volunteer, and look for ways to make our communities better.
Celebrating 30 years of service!
Councilman Antonio Glover joined the Butchers Hill community association in honoring a special individual who has spent at least 30 years in the Butchers Hill neighborhood and community association as the Crime Prevention Chair.
Mrs. Boitnott spent those years attending court proceedings, writing victim impact statements, attending Southeastern District Community Relations Council meetings, and chairing the Butcher's Hill Crime Prevention monthly meetings. Her selfless dedication to the neighborhood has raised the bar for all of us as we continue to navigate some of the challenges we face in our communities. Councilman Glover sends his thanks and congratulations to Mrs. Boitnott on this momentous milestone achievement.
Councilman Glover joined his colleges in Patterson Park for the Fiesta Baltimore Festival, celebrating Hispanic/Latino cultures. This event, hosted by Nuestras Raices Inc. is the most anticipated Hispanic/Latino cultural event of the year in the Baltimore Region. This event included the 4th annual Latino Cultural Festival and Parade of Latino Nations.
Nuestras Raices Inc, is a Hispanic/Latino 501 C-3 nonprofit community based cultural organization, that seeks to Organize and sponsor educational, cultural & artistic events, including art shows, musical performances, parades, festivals, workshops & conferences and contribute to the education, preservation and promotion of the richness and diversity of the Hispanic/Latino culture, art, and artistic heritage throughout the Baltimore Metropolitan Region.
First Fall Festival
Beautiful weather filled with fun was the prescription for Councilman Glover's First Fall Festival held in Broadway East Park. Councilman Glover and the Broadway East Community went all out providing pumpkins, apples, pony rides, apple cider and candy to all that came and participated. This is yet another event brought to you to increase neighborhoods and not "nearborhoods" (where we live near each other, but don't know each other). Councilman Glover looks forward to continuing to providing these community building events.
FORE!: Baltimore's Next Entertainment Hub
Baltimore has a new entertainment district called the Walk at Warner Street, right down by the Horseshoe Casino. This new entertainment district will benefit the city by creating new and fun things for people to do with their spare time. One of these new, fun activities is the new TopGolf facility that opened on Friday, October 28, 2022. Councilman Glover joined with his colleagues and citywide officials for the ribbon cutting, and the christening of the new driving range. TopGolf is a growing franchise that has more than 70 locations around the world. It is a driving range game, but a bit like a bowling alley. The Topgolf experience is more about accuracy and shot making than it is about golfing. The Walk at Warner Street, will be anchored by the Horseshoe Casino, Top Golf, The Paramount Concert Venue, and a 300+ Key Hotel, all situated on the Gwynn Falls Trail.
We Are One
Councilman Glover and several community members convened at Chesapeake Insurance Arena to partake in the the Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, and Isley Brother's concert. It speaks volumes for our community leaders to come together and partake in a night filled with good music, fun, and comradery. The Councilman encourages everyone to continue to find ways to come together.
Trick or Treat!
On Halloween, the McElderry Park Community Association held it's second annual Trunk or Treat in the 600 Block of N. Montford St. This year's event was held to honor the memory of Ms. Pamela Brown, a dedicated community leader who fought tirelessly for the betterment of her community. Even through the rain, we celebrated with food, candy, costumes , and fun.
Herring Run Park Survey
Friends of Herring Run Park are in a strategic planning process to determine their focus areas for the next 3-5 years. They created a survey to learn from the community members who care about the park how best to represent their interests, what programs they should host, and what to advocate for in the park. They want to hear from as many voices as possible! Please share the survey widely within your own networks and
organizations. We want to hear from as many voices as possible! If you have questions, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. They look forward to sharing the plan with you in 2023!
