in • VOL, XII! . T’~O. ! SERVING THE PEOPLE OF CABIN JOHN AND BEYONO JAN-uARY 198o | AGENDA FOR jANUARY 2~th MEETING In keeping with the~hew year, the first item on the agenda will be an open house at the new Four-Year- 01d School quarters, from 8:00 to 8:30 p.m., or later if you want. S~ Dick. See Jane. Come see. The regular meeting will then begin. There will be brief reports On: l) Proposals to provide youth ac- tivities in, for, and by Cabin Jo~hn. 2) A national fuel co-op plan de- signed to aid communities in saving on the cost and amounts of fuels used while putting the savings to work in the community, and how Cabin John might participate, if desired. 3) Proposals to improve circulation of the Village News. 4) Seven Locks Road project 5) MacArthur Boulevard drainage. Also in keeping with the new year and new decade, the sole main item on the agenda will be an open session designed to generate clear guidance on what you want your association to try to accom- plish. Your executive feels that Cabin John is not taken seriously by the County and other public and private interests. We wonder what return we get on our tax dollars. Is there undue emphasis on new projects and not enough on maintaining existing facilities? For example, is there sufficient maintenance Of roads and the MacArthur Boulevard bike path? of storm drainage? Of police protec- tion? Would you like us to identify those people in the County Depart- ments charged with Cabin John’s well-being ~ud invite them to a meeting to exchange views? ~Wnat topics would interest you for dis- cussion at future meetings? Please think over these and other concerns you might have and come to the meeting to discuss it. During the holidays this December, the Cabin John Three and Four Year 01d program moved into its new classroom in the wing of Clara Barton School. That o the County was willing to remodel space to accomodate this nursery program was due in large measure to the support provided by the people of Cabin John during public hearings last year. As a way of saying Thank You, the parents of this year’s class are inviting those who attend the Citizens Association meeting on Tuesday, January 29th~ to walk down the hall and visit the new class- room. Anyone who cannot come at that time, is welcome to @ .’HIE VILLAGE NEWS ., ~., lllll l IL The Cabin John Sprlng Festival And Community RummaKe Sale Is ON’,,,, The Cabin John Three and Four Year 01d School is once again putting on its famous spring FESTIVAL AND RUMMAGE …..

GROCERIES*BREAKFAST*LUNCH MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY 6:30 am to 6:00 pm HOLIDAY PARTY A SUCCESS’ by Stephanie Becker Cabin John’s annual Holiday Party was annual once again thanks to the enthusiastic efforts of many won- derful people. Annette Davis and her Four Year Old Class met instant stardom. Reed Martin’s banjo playing captivated us all and Barbara Martin, accompanied by Vera Dolezal, raised our spirits with Christmas music. Many thanks to the Winslow family for providing the sound system, to the Vogts for a beautiful tree, to Mary vanEmmerik for the festive decorations, and to Betsy Cheney for organizing the refreshments. Th~uks too go to Tony for bringing the cider and to Cathy Nelson, Linda Wichman, Pat Duff and Marion Purtell for all their help. Diane Lee was Santa’s helper, but Santa’s origins remain a secret still. Alan vanEmmerik deserves a special thanks for leading the ceremonies and the clean up, in spite of an aching back. (Ed. note: Very special thanks from the community to a very special person, Stephanie Becket, for being the major inspiration and organizer of this community gathering. It would not have been the s~me without her around to mobilize us. We’re sorry to report that we will be losing this community resource soon, because Stephanie and her family ~;i7. b~ ~ee.ving soon for Alaska.)

The Village News is written for and by the people in Cabin John and is intended to ba a reflection of the community. It depends on the community for news, support, commentary and for li£e. Right now, the Village News needs help from the entire community if it is to continue. A revision of the V.N. delivery system is sorely needed to provide reliable delivery to all of Cabin John. We are looking for adults willing to deliver the paper in their immediate neighborhood. Volunteers need only spend about 30 minutes each month putting papers into their neighbors’ mailboxes. If you could provide this service, please call Bobbi Stuart at 229- 6931 or see me at the meeting on Tuesday night. Also – the Village News’ treasury is being rapidly depleted by printing costs. We are organizing a door-to-door fund-raising campaign to keep the paper going. This will take place in early March, but we need people now who would be willing to knock on a few doors asking for contributions. If you can help us out, call Susan Gelb at 229-5851. Some residents have sent in unsolicited donations. Theseare very appreciated and made those of us who contribute to the Village News feel that our time and energy are well soent.
