The Caper – May 2021

That disease which must not be named has started to loosen its grip on our dailies. Jeff, in his Presidential message dives into how TDWMNBN has affected the community over the past year. We’re all looking forward to whatever the new normal can be. As we all start to get outside more and <GASP> see other humans, Jeff has a reminder to all of you on brushing up on the rules and regulations of the community, including our boat ramp and beaches. Check our site for more details.

Ryan, our Town Manager, has a great message on things in bloom and ways to improve your landscapes. Maintaining turf grass is one of the easiest ways to prevent soil erosion in your yards. The University of Maryland Extension office recommends tall fescue as the species of choice for our state. More information in this month’s Caper.
