Due to the anticipated snow storm, we are cancelling the Bannockburn Citizens Association meeting scheduled for tomorrow. We are looking at options to reschedule the meeting, starting with next Thursday March 12. Stay tuned.
The National Weather Service has issued a WINTER STORM WARNING for Montgomery County, beginning 12:01 am Thursday. Resident should prepare for heavy snowfall/sleet accumulations of at least 6 inches. Travel disruptions within the County and region are likely as roads quickly become snow covered and icy.
