Spring 2016 – Events

4th Annual Dumpster Day! Saturday, April 16, 7am-noon

The HOA Board has arranged for a dumpster to be available for the community’s use. The dumpster will be located on Drexel Woods Dr. just past Oak Shadows Court.

Please use discretion with items brought for dumping. Not everything is acceptable for loading. We will have someone there to look over the refuse during the entire 5 hours of availability.

Please review the following list for what is acceptable:


Household waste as well as recyclables and compostables

Not Acceptable

  • Waste from construction or demolition activities (i.e., asphalt, concrete (greater than 18 inches in size), brick, black, stone, and aggregate
  • Hazardous wastes and liquids of any type (i.e., acids, caustics, pesticides, or chemicals)
  • Automobiles or automobile parts, including vehicle bodies or frames

Spring Clean-up – Saturday, April 16, 9am-noon

We need volunteers for a neighborhood trash clean-up. We will meet at the dumpster set up for the day on Drexel Woods Dr. at 9am. Wear sturdy shoes, and long pants, bring gloves. We will canvas the common grounds around the woods and pick up trash.

Hike to the River! Saturday, April 30, 1pm

We are blessed to be adjacent to Patapsco Valley State Park. Now with the advent of a new trail into the park from our common grounds, we have a great opportunity to enjoy all the benefits. Jim Apgar, HOA board member, invites residents to join him in a community hike. Please come spend some time taking in the natural beauty that surrounds our community. Dogs are welcome!

WHERE: Meet at side road entrance just below Shady Hill Ct.
WHAT TO BRING/WEAR: Wear good walking or hiking shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. You may also want to bring a bottle of water and a snack.
QUESTIONS? Contact Jim Apgar at jim.apgar46@gmail.com

Get fit for summer

Join your neighbors for weekly hikes in the Patapsco Valley. We’ll explore more areas of the park like Cascade Falls, Buzzard Rock, Avalon and Orange Grove. We’ll also do easy fitness walks along the paved Trolley Trail and Grist Mill Trail that runs along the Patapsco River.
