The Perry Hall Improvement Association and President Dennis M. Robinson Jr. are happy to share the group's spring news and events for our community. First on the agenda, Dennis welcomes three new PHIA board members: Carrie Flora, Pat Keller and Josh Sutherland. "I look forward to working with them and the other current board members to ensure that we remain proud to call Perry Hall home", Dennis said. As the three new members settle in, PHIA thanks three exiting members Diane Brazil, the Rev. Elmer Klein and Bob Mowry for their many years of dedicated service to the Perry Hall community: "Diane's efforts over the years have made Perry Hall greener and cleaner. Rev. Elmer Klein is the longest-serving board member in the history of the PHIA and always provided sound advice based on his wisdom and experience. Bob Mowry's careful consideration of zoning and development proposals has been instrumental over the past few years." Let's join in thanking them as we are blessed to have such devoted citizens as neighbors in our area.
Upcoming PHIA general meetings: On April 11, representatives of the White Marsh Volunteer Fire Company will provide an overview of their role in the community and tips for fire prevention. On May 9, we are inviting state senators and delegates who represent Perry Hall to provide a summary of the 2013 legislative session. Meetings take place at 7:30 p.m. at the Perry Hall Library, 9685 Honey go Blvd. in Perry Hall.

On a no- so-happy note, there is sad news to report about Noelle, the white dog lost in White Marsh and found 17 months later in New York. After being reunited with her owner, the Rev. Lou Scurti in January, Noelle was happy to be home although she was underweight and not well. Approximately six weeks later on March 2, Noelle died. From Fr. Lou to our community: "First of all, I would like to thank everyone who assisted in the search and recovery of Noelle. (She) was weak and ill. But she made it home and enjoyed her time with us. Noelle passed peacefully."
