What's the Buzz About Scouting in Kentlands? Kids Say "I Like!"
By: Karen Norris

(Editor's Note: There are many scouting groups in and near the Kentlands community. The following article provides a representative sampling of the varied groups and activities.)

Ask any scout, whether a Daisy, Cub, Brownie, Boy or Girl Scout, and you'll get a smile along with an abundance of reasons why. "I like camping trips and snow tubing," says Fletcher of Cub Scout Pack 221. "I like to go places and help people," adds Miranda of Girl Scout Troop 5908. "I like seeing all my friends," declared Chloe, Daisy Troop 3051 and Kindergartner at Rachel Carson Elementary School. "I think they are nice."

It's unanimous. The Kentlands is fortunate to have several troops in the community and greater local area, and at any given time you can see neighbors, who double as troop leaders, carting art supplies, curriculum notebooks and tote bags of snacks to meetings at the Carriage House and to activities throughout the community.

Property Maintenance Inspections 2015
By: Robyn Renas

No one wants to read that property maintenance inspections are just around the corner, especially when we all had the best intentions to tackle painting our crusty fences or touching up dings in the garage door this past summer.  The last uniform review of Kentlands properties was performed in January 2013. 

But let’s rewind a bit further to understand the history and reasons for establishing this review process.  In 2006 when I joined the Board of Trustees there was no process in place to perform uniform maintenance review of the properties in the neighborhood.  The maintenance review at the time was inconsistent and predominantly generated by neighbor complaints or staff review while out and about on community business.  The Board of Trustees would hear many complaints from homeowners that went much as follows: “Why am I getting a letter about the condition of my (fill in the blank) when the following houses of my neighbors have the exact same issue and are not being cited?”

Making Our Community Work
By: Barney Gorin

Kentlands is the great place that it is because the people who live here make it great. All do some, some do more. Those who “do more” are often the unsung volunteers who serve on our various committees.

There are about 26 opportunities to do more opening up over the next few weeks because the terms of those who have given generously of their “blood, toil, tears, and sweat” are expiring. While many have offered to continue to serve, “many hands make light work” and new volunteers with new ideas and new energy are always welcome.
