The Loch Raven Improvement Association is a dynamic community that is well-positioned for the future. As we continue our mission to keep our neighborhood safe, clean and strong, the LRIA Executive Board and membership body are fully committed to providing residents and future generations an outstanding quality of life.
The LRIA encourages membership that is actively involved in the community by joining at least one of the committees that exists to serve and improve our lifestyle. Active participation by members of our neighborhood will continue a long tradition of community service and socially responsible practices.
As we progress through the New Year, it is hopeful that even more residents become engaged in community participation by paying your annual dues, attending meetings, participating on committees, and maintaining a viable neighborhood by addressing substandard housing conditions, unlawful behavior, and other unacceptable quality-of-life issues.
THE STRENGTH AND STABILILTY OF OUR NEIGHBORHOOD DEPENDS ON YOU!!!

LRIA VIRTUAL COMMUNITY MEETING INFORMATION
We have missed engaging with everyone in our traditional ways and have been working to adjust our communications efforts during this unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic.
PLEASE JOIN US FOR A VIRTUAL COMMUNITY MEETING!!!
Tuesday, March 16th, 2021
ALL RESIDENTS ARE INVITED!

It's that simple!!!
The LRIA and the Immanuel Lutheran Church are entering discussions for a Joint Community Garden project, just north of, and adjacent to the upper church parking lot at 5701 Loch Raven Boulevard.
This venture has tremendous potential of turning unused space into a green, productive plot of land where residents can gather to grow fresh vegetables and flowers, while also enjoying fresh air, exercise, and an overall healthy lifestyle.
But of course, this will take planning... identifying resources, developing a budget, preparing the site, and establishing rules... all before the first seed is sewn.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED NOW to form a steering committee that will develop a comprehensive strategy to kickstart this project. The pleasure of gardening awaits us and your participation is essential if this endeavor is to be successful. Contact the LRIA today, sign-up to be part of the team, and get involved in what could be a most enjoyable gardening experience for our Loch Raven community.
The Loch Raven Improvement Association would like to thank all residents for doing your part in keeping our neighborhood safe, clean, and strong during this unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. Please remember to follow the recommendations of medical professionals... that if we all continue to do our part in wearing appropriate face coverings, washing our hands, following safe, social distancing guidelines, and when available, taking the vaccine, we will overcome this health crisis.

BGE Warns Customers About Utility Scammers During COVID-19
With Maryland and the world experiencing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, BGE is reminding customers to always be on alert for potential scams targeting utility customers. BGE has seen an increase in scam reports over the past week with scammers attempting to use this health crisis to trick utility customers. Scammers are offering cash or credit incentives from BGE in order to obtain a customer’s personal or financial information.
Don't Get Scammed: Customers can avoid being scammed by taking a few precautions:
• Never provide your social security number or personal information to anyone initiating contact with you claiming to be a utility representative or requesting you to send money to another person or entity other than your local utility providers.
• Always ask to see a company photo ID before allowing any utility worker into your home or business.
• Do not give payment in any form- cash, check, or credit- to anyone coming to your door.
Any customer who believes he or she has been a target of a scam is urged to contact 911 and call BGE immediately at 800-685-0123 to report the situation.
Stress is the body’s physical, mental, or emotional response to stimuli.
Stress is a normal part of life that could be a response to changes in one’s life or environment. Some short term stress can be life-saving (i.e. getting out of a danger), but many of us live in a near constant state of stress. Unlike short term stress which can be protective, constant or chronic stress can be harmful. Research has linked chronic stress with high blood pressure, clogged arteries, obesity, poor sleep, and brain changes linked to anxiety, depression, and addiction.
In an effort to encourage a healthy community, the Loch Raven Improvement Association will be starting a “Stress Less” Challenge. Participants who engage in 15+ minutes of stress lowering activities (laughing, meditating, exercise, etc.), 4+ days per week for 3+ weeks will be entered to win a prize pack!
If you are interested in participating or would like more details, please text Dena at 443-267-8380.
The LRIA encourages ALL residents to remain vigilant against crime in our neighborhood by applying for a confidential CrimeWatch number, which may be used to report incidents to the 911 system without disclosing your personal identity.
