President’s Message
Summer is just about here. A sure
sign of its imminent arrival was the
May 22nd “Dumpster Day” in Loch
Raven Village. Jerry Heilman oversaw the
delivery of ten dumpsters – seven for the
Village and three for Knettishall. Jerry’s helpers this year were Sue O’Neill,
who, incidentally, collected $275.00 for
the fireworks, Wayne Skinner, Gary
Herwig, Mike Smith, Bud Thomas, and
Brandon and his wife. I hope I haven’t
missed anyone. Thanks for your help.
Lucky 50/50 Winner!
Elizabeth Ruppert of Doxbury
Road was the winner of the 50/50
Raffle that was held by the ALRV
to benefit the 2010 fireworks. Ms.
Ruppert’s name was drawn at
the May ALVA meeting and was
awarded $638.50. Congratulations
to Ms. Ruppert and thank you to
all who participated.
To celebrate Independence Day with
flair, this year the Kiwanis Club is asking for volunteers to help place American
flags in front of all Village residences.
Flags will be distributed to volunteers
at 7:00am on July 4th from the parking lot of Pleasant Plains Elementary
School. Please give an hour of your time
and help distribute the flags to keep up
this wonderful tradition.
Please bring your family and friends
to enjoy the annual Fourth of July Picnic
held at the Loch Raven Center grounds
4th of July Festivities!

ALRV Meetings
Meetings are held on the
second Tuesday of each month
7:00pm, Room 102 at the former
Loch Raven Center
1801 Glen Keith Boulevard.
Residents are encouraged to attend,
and to help in our ongoing work
“to protect, maintain, and enhance
the property values of Loch Raven
Village homes, and the quality of life
of Loch Raven Village residents.”
New Local Childcare Program
Earns an A+!
LRV has a great new option in afterschool childcare! Babcock Presbyterian
Church opened the “A+ Care at Babcock” afterschool program in November of last year to provide high-quality
care for elementary-age children (K-5th
grade). The program strives to meet the
academic needs of the children through
tutoring and homework assistance, and
also emphasizes cooperative play, positive interaction, and activities to help a
child’s sense of respect and awareness of
right and wrong.
Primary activities include academic
tutoring to strengthen or remediate skills, organized age-appropriate
activities encouraging self-expression in
a safe and nurturing environment, and
daily lessons based on Bible teachings
with a focus on applying those lessons
in daily life. The program also focuses
on activities related to music, arts and
crafts, recreation, and drama. Each day
a snack is provided. The program is led
by an experienced Director and staff
with years of experience working in
local school systems, and is fully licensed
by the State of Maryland.
This program was developed to support
the Loch Raven Village community and
surrounding areas, and it follows the
Baltimore County Public School calendar. Hours of operation are from 3:30
pm to 6:00 pm. The cost is $50 per week,
and discounts may be available for families with multiple enrolled participants
or with financial need. There is also a
daily rate of $15/day for those families
with children who do not need to attend
5 days a week.
How well is the A+ afterschool program
doing? Quite well apparently, according
to parents Chuck and Terri Cook:
“We appreciate everything that you do
for Brandon in the afternoons. We never
have to worry and know that he is safe
and well cared for. There has never been
a doubt in our minds that sending him
to your after school care was a great decision. Everyone has helped him in so many
ways. He has improved so much with his
writing, he is constantly learning things
from you that he did not know and he
is always very happy when we pick him
up in the afternoon. You consistently
make sure that he has completed his
homework and let us know what didn’t
get done. This is very special because it
gives us more free time in the evening.
Your center is very accommodating and
flexible to a dual working parent household. All of you are very enthusiastic and
passionate about caring for the kids and
it shows. Thank you from the bottom of
our heart for caring for Brandon when
we can’t be there.”
Additional information about the program can be found on the web at
www.babcockpc.org/html/afterschool.html
or by calling them at 410-825-0089.
Transportation services are not available, but an added bonus for local families is that the A+ staff meets particiContributing Writer,
pating children from Pleasant Plains
Josh Sutherland
Elementary at the end of their school
day (3:15 p.m.) and walks with them to
the church. How great is that!

Gardening ‘til it hurts?
Walking around the Village, it’s obvious
that some serious gardeners live here!
But for many gardeners, that green
thumb is painful.
Hillendale
Animal Hospital
Arthritis of the thumb is a common, and
often debilitating, disorder. It occurs
more often in women than in men, and
is most likely to strike after age 40. It
may also develop in people who have
had thumb fractures or injuries.
Dr. Donald C. Mills
Veterinarian
In addition to pain, arthritis usually
causes swelling and tenderness at the
base of the thumb. You may notice a
loss of strength when gripping, such as
opening a jar, or pinching, such as when
you are trying to pick up a coin.
Doctors hours by appointment
410.296.5411
Don’t ignore it—talk with your doctor. Arthritis not only causes pain and
restricts mobility, it can destroy your
joints. As small as it is, your thumb is
crucial for performing many daily activities, such as turning a key, opening
a door, buttoning clothes, and, of course,
gardening.
Monday-Friday 9-6
Saturday 9-1
6839 Loch Raven Blvd.
Hillendale Shopping Center
Your Neighborhood Printer
You can minimize wear and tear on the
thumb joint by using arthritis-friendly
products, such as gardening tools with
extra padding or large handles. And
don’t forget to wear padded gloves. (The
Arthritis Foundation recommends some
tools. Check out www.arthritis.org.)
Having a green thumb shouldn’t mean
having a painful thumb.

3. Flags are used until they are worn out

For some, summer is the best time of the
year. I know it is for me, and that is because it is also the time for my birthday.
But that’s not the only reason I like the
summer. I also get to go fun and interesting places. For instance, I can go camping with my friends and family. Sometimes we may go to a theme park.

Letter from the Editor
The LRVA would like to rectify an oversight. The board failed to congratulate
its two newest board members.
At the LRVA annual meeting in April,
resident Katherine Shamer was elected
to the board. Ms. Shamer was the only
new member elected to the board at the
meeting.
Kate Walkinshaw, of Feldbrook Road,
was voted in as a board member in March
at the monthly meeting. Kate had been
attending board meetings, working as
the Crier designer and co-editor, and is
heading up the website committee. She
will be continuing in these capacities.
The board would like to extend our
appreciation to the pair as they serve for
the betterment of our community. Volunteers are a special breed and we are
grateful for their commitment.
Board positions are still vacant. If you
are at all interested in serving, please
feel free to contact any of the current
board members for more information.
We would love to have you.
