October 13, 2002|By Christina Bittner | Christina Bittner,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

NO ONE could ever claim that Brooklyn Parkers do not have an opportunity to get involved in their communities. If you doubt me, take a look at this week's schedule of community meetings.

The Brooklyn Heights Improvement Association will hold its meeting at 7 p.m. tomorrow at Brooklyn Park Library, 1 E. 11th Ave.

The association will be accepting nominations for president, vice president, recording secretary, membership secretary, treasurer and three delegates at large for the 2002-2003 year.

Each delegate at large represents an area of the community. The northernmost area is bounded by Frankle Street on the north, Orchard Avenue on the south, Ritchie Highway on the west and the Baltimore line on the east. The second covers the area from Orchard Avenue south to Townsend Avenue, with Ritchie Highway on the west and the city line on the east. The third area is bounded by Townsend Avenue on the north, Magie Street on the south, Ritchie Highway on the west and the city line on the east.

All members who are current on their association dues and attended at least three meetings during the year are eligible to stand for office. Information: 410-636-9611.

Olde Brooklyn Park Improvement Association will hold its regularly scheduled meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Brooklyn Park Elementary School, at Morgan Road and 14th Avenue.

Association President Arleen Hodges has invited Democratic state Sen. Philip C. Jimeno, Democratic Dels. Joan Cadden and Mary M. Rosso, Republican Del. John R. Leopold and Democratic County Councilwoman Pamela G. Beidle to answer questions from members. Information: 410-636-3269.

Meet the candidates

The Arundel Improvement Association has come up with a sure-fire way to get members of the community out to meet the candidates for elective office. AIA will hold a Meet the Candidates Night on Thursday, and will provide all those attending with a spaghetti dinner beginning at 6 p.m.

Have dinner, meet the candidates, find out what is happening in your neighborhood, talk with your friends and neighbors and register to vote, all courtesy of the AIA.
