FUNDRAISERS (CONSIDER GIVING)
Are you looking for a cause to donate to? The Crownsville Conservatory is partnering with GreenGive which may be of interest to you. They are working on a fundraising and engagement-building initiative to expand participation in 11 Anne Arundel County waterway and environmental organizations. It’s a great chance to be part of raising important funds to protect land throughout Anne Arundel County. No matter what the size, all protected lands are valuable.

SOCIAL MEDIA CONNECTIONS
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].
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].
Report concerns and feel safe by forging bonds amongst neighbors
Stay vigilant and help reduce burglaries and robberies
NOT ON FACEBOOK?

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.
KAYAK RACKS HAVE ARRIVED AT A BEACH NEAR YOU!
Kayak Racks! That's right....with so many residents being owners of kayaks and having to lug them down to the water, ABI has erected kayak racks at each of our beaches. These racks will be maintained and monitored by ABI representatives and there is an annual fee and pass issued to store your kayak on the rack. Visit ABI's Website to reserve your spot today! Slots are either full or filling up fast.
NOTE: PLEASE DO NOT POST PERSONAL MESSAGES ON ANY OF OUR COMMUNITY AND SECTION ENTRANCE SIGNS OR COMMUNITY NOTIFICATION BOARDS.
THESE BOARDS ARE RESERVED FOR OFFICIAL COMMUNITY BUSINESS ONLY FOR RESIDENT NOTIFICATION OF COMMUNITY EVENTS AND MEETINGS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND COOPERATION.
