SOCIAL MEDIA CONNECTIONS

ON FACEBOOK:

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

The Arden Community Association (ACA) now has a permanent home on the social medial platform through a private Facebook (FB) group called, "Arden Community Association Neighborhood Discussion Board". This group is intended for current Arden residents only to ensure the privacy and safety of its members. There are some membership questions you'll need to answer to join the group.

Please know that there are several other "Arden" related social media pages and groups that are NOT affiliated with ACA or Arden Beaches, Inc. (ABI). Many of you may have seen confusing posts on these other resident-managed platforms and the ACA has reached out to the single administrator of the "Arden on the Severn" page, as well as the "Arden on the Severn Community Forum" group asking that the names of these platforms be revised so as not to appear to be managed by an official organization of the community, but to no avail. Please be aware of this problem and make an educated decision about the platforms that you want to be part of and participate in.

If you would like to be a part of the OFFICIAL COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION run platforms, you can find that information here. In order stay in the know about important community news, concerns, and events, you'll want to join us [HERE].

Engage in neighbor discussions current Arden residents ONLY.

Stay up to date on events and neighborhood news

Want to be a part of the eyes and ears of our community? Be sure to join our "Arden Community Association Neighborhood Watch" private group where residents only can report incidents and concerns related to the security of our properties and our neighborhood in general, and where the NW Team shares important tips and information pertaining to crime trends in the area and general personal and property safety. This group is managed by ACA and the Neighborhood Watch Committee. To join this private group, you must answer membership questions to confirm residency. You can join [HERE].

AROUND THE BEACHES

Beach Rules & Regs

Now that we are in the full swing of summer, our beaches are busier than ever. Please be sure to familiarize yourself with the ABI Beach Rules and Regulations. Be considerate of other beach goers and remember, NO PETS and NO GLASS on the beaches. If you have food delivered to the beach or for a party, be sure to break down your waste as much as possible to save space in the trash bins. If you're serving up and eating crabs at the beach, please be sure to bring your own trash bags and take your waste home with you. ABI dumpsters are only emptied every two weeks and bait and crab remnants as you can imagine can make for some very unpleasant smells. Your help in taking these extra steps will help maximize supplies, minimize volunteer time, and reduce unpleasant odor from the dumpsters that no one wants to smell while enjoying a beautiful, hot beach day.

Check out the AACo Department of Health's Sun Safety and Water Safety resources [HERE].
