Letters to the Editor

Thank you to the voters
I am writing to express my appreciation to the OP community for the support I received from you during my campaign, and for electing me to your Board of Directors.
I am grateful for the words of advice and counsel I received during the campaign from homeowners and from association members who provided insights from their direct experience of HOA governance.
I am grateful for the many phone calls and emails from homeowners who respectfully challenged me to state and justify my positions on issues they care about, and asked me to articulate my reasons for seeking a director position.
I am humbled by the confidence you placed in me by electing me to help lead and govern our association. I pledge to do my best to help steer our association in a positive direction, and to support the good work of the association employees.
Colette Horn
Director, OPA

Thanks to volunteers
The Berlin Heritage Foundation’s Peach Festival Committee extends heartfelt thanks to all those who made our ninth annual festival a great success.
We are grateful to all those who donated funds, prizes or in-kind services, volunteered, performed, demonstrated and sold crafts and art, shared educational information, provided delicious food and beverages, judged pies, dared to join in a pie-eating contest or sport a peach tattoo. We also thank the more than 3,000 people who attended.
Our downtown merchants made Peach Day so much fun. Special thanks go to our major sponsors – Taylor Bank, Williams, Moore, Shockley & Harrison, LLP, Worcester County Arts Council, Maryland State Arts Council and Main Street Berlin – as well as to Mayor Gee Williams, the Council and all the departments working for the Town of Berlin who helped to make this another great community event.
What a festive day in Berlin.
The Peach Festival
