Hello Neighbors,

Adult Happy Hour | March Madness
Friday, March 16th, 6:00pm
Clubhouse, Upper Level
Secure your babysitter and come join your neighbors at the clubhouse for an Adults Only Happy Hour on Friday, March 16th! Bring three $1 bills so we can play Left, Right Center or you can watch the first-round NCAA basketball games on either of the two TVs, as the tournament starts this weekend.

We plan to have wings as well as some small snacks and plenty of soda, water and a green St. Patty’s Day punch. You can also feel free to bring your own libations. We hope you can join us!

Small Cell Facilities – Call to Action
From the inGaithersburg Weekly Newsletter:
“Public testimony will be heard by the Finance Committee for Senate Bill 1188 on Tuesday, March 20 at 1 p.m. in the Miller Senate Office Building at 11 Bladen Street in Annapolis. As written, the bill represents a coordinated, national effort by the telecommunications industry to prevent public input and limit local government authority over the installation of small cell equipment and poles in the public right of way.

The City strongly opposes this legislation and is working to protect its residents’ voices regarding installation decisions to ensure that they work for the community, protect our neighborhoods and allow local government oversight. The City urges residents to contact committee members to express opposition. Download the letter template here and find more information here.”

Gaithersburg City Council Member, and Washingtonian Woods resident, Ryan Spiegel, has also posted about this topic recently in the Washingtonian Woods neighborhood private Facebook page. Feel free to log on and check it out.
