Subject: Power Outage & Security Committee
Date Sent: July 2, 2012

Electricity was out in the entire area over the weekend, with trees and wires down in numerous places.  It seems to have been restored as of Sunday evening for at least a portion of our neighborhood.  If you still do not have power, call Pepco at 1-877-737-2662 to report outages. 

There is a great deal of camaraderie and support among neighbors.  The block captain network is working with our new security committee, and people were out bringing ice to neighbors and helping each other on Saturday.  The Good Neighbor committee was also active during this event.   

You can find information about these committees on the BCA website.

Power at St. Mark Orthodox Church was restored Sunday evening.  They advise that the church now has 5 empty, fully functioning freezers if anyone would like to use them.  Please contact Alexandra Safchuk at if you need to store something.  As you know, we have our meetings at a St. Mark Orthodox Church.  St. Mark is on River Road, off of Nevis.

Best wishes,
Ted Garrett
BCA President
