Sat. October 1st        3 to 7 p.m.

The hurricane and earthquake are behind us so the AOTB Property Owners Association is throwing a great community picnic on the Magnolia Avenue beach this Saturday, October 1, from 3 to 7 pm.

A DJ with a high-end sound system will preside over dance contests for all ages (with great prizes). The largest water slide (21ft high) in the county will cool off adventurers of all ages. A moon bounce will warm up the kids. Food and drink will be in abundance. Volleyball contests on water and land with teams representing streets in the community will vie for major prizes, as will the best AOTB historic photos.

Our DJ will have music for every age group with a kickin' sound system. His mixing and scratching skills will have everyone up and dancing. There will be dance contests for every age group with valuable prizes.  A professional face-painting company will be providing free services from 3:30 to 5:30 pm.

The AOTB History Project will sponsor a tent and $25 prizes for the folks who bring in the best historic photos etc. in various categories.

We will be selling AOTB T shirts and baseball caps with new colors and designs under the leadership of Committee Chair Roxanne Veal. The colors for the t-shirts are green, red, ash gray, pink, and white. Hats are in similar color combinations. The prices of the tees are $17.00 for sizes small through XL and $19.00 for 2XL. Hats are 13.00. We are having a sale on purchases of a hat and t-shirt - $3 off. You can special order t-shirts in other colors for the same price. Call Roxanne at 410-268-7220.

AOTB will provide a keg of high quality beer and will have the beach grills all fired up. Main course folks (see below) are encouraged to bring hamburgers or hot dogs with buns for 10 people. Covered dish main courses are also welcome.

Every family is asked to bring a dish to be shared based on the first letter of their last name. Last names starting with A through F should bring a main course (hamburgers or hot dogs with buns for 10 people are suggested, although other main courses are welcome). Names starting from G through M should bring a dessert. Those with last names starting with N through S should bring bottled water, soda and other non-alcoholic drinks. Folks whose last names start with T through Z should bring hors d'oeuvres.

Each family will be charged $10 for ice, glasses, plates, condiments etc. as well as to offset the cost of the DJ, Moon bounce, tents and Water Slide at the event. The association needs to make these events come close to breaking even to insure we can keep doing them in the future.

We will be providing a porta potty, tables and some chairs but you are encouraged to bring your own folding chairs. We will have some tents for shade and protection from showers. There is no rain day planned. The party goes on rain or shine. Please RSVP to by Sept. 30 so we may plan accurately for the size crowd to expect.

Most importantly, if you are a party person and would like to help plan games like volley ball tournaments with teams based on the street you live on, dance contests or water balloon toss with real prizes for the winning teams contact Marc Apter, Social Committee Chair, 301-904-3690 or
