President's Message
   I would like everyone to know that the parking lot and basketball court renovations have been completed.  I would like to thank Friends of Olde Mill for assisting us with their donation in the resurfacing of the basketball courts. The area is looking nice and the basketball courts are being used.  I have also received thank-you’s from the youngsters who are enjoying the playing courts.
   The Olde Mill Carnival will be here and running from Wednesday, June 4, through Saturday, June 7.  The times will be from 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. each night. Please contact me, Tom Stag, at 443-336-2913 for presale ticket information and save some moneya 50% discount!
   The community clean-up will be done this year in June.  The county will supply a dumpster down at the parking lot at Barlowe Field/Olde Mill Swim Club.  Please make sure that you only dispose of items listed.  No paints, tires, motor oil, and some other restricted  items are to be disposed of in the dumpster.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
   The Olde Mill Swim Club has opened up for the weekends beginning with Memorial Day.  Once the school year ends, the pool starts daily operations. I commend all the volunteers who have assisted in getting the pool ready.  I really want to thank Rick Behringer for all his time and effort in getting things set to go.  The wading pool had a new surface installed last week.
   The June VOMCA meeting will be held on Wednesday, June 11, at 7:00 p.m. at the swim club.  Note this meeting had to be moved to the second Wednesday of the month due to the carnival being held during the first week. 
   If you haven’t yet done so, please join VOMCA and become a member. Dues are $15.00 a year and that gives you a voice in the greater Olde Mill area.  Remember the work of the VOMCA volunteers has enabled all of us to enjoy Barlowe Field, the playground, and the basketball courts.
   We are continuing to work with local government officials on the Snyder Homes project off Elvaton Rd.  Snyder Homes is planning to build that development to the right (east) of the junction of Oakwood Rd. and Old Mill Blvd.  They also want to build an assisted living center on Old Mill Blvd. and a medical office building with an entrance from Oakwood Rd. that will be a new road off the current intersection with Old Mill Blvd.
   Please remember the Olde Mill Carnival running from June 4-8.  This is a big fundraiser for VOMCA and allows us to assist in the upkeep and improvement of Olde Mill facilities.  This is our last chance to make it successful.  Thanks for your assistance and participation.
