The wait is now over for all you treasure seekers. After 2 months of renovations the OO shop is once again open for business. The grand opening was accompanied by boutonnieres and a bouquet provided by our flower committee and lots of good cheer.
Our volunteers led by Karen and Carol have out done themselves in placing and organizing all the goodies. The furniture room alone, makes one want take something home. Redone from floor to ceiling, freshly painted with new shelving, the layout is now easier to negotiate to find those treasures.

Residents were indeed impressed and proud of their new shop. Our many thanks go to the entire team of volunteers who emptied and placed in storage items for sale and then did a magnificent job setting up the new store. You have made us proud.

The Collington Weed Warriors have expanded their reach and adopted the Regents Park Trail. Under a program of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, they will pick up trash and clear branches off the trail four times a year.
On Saturday, August 25, thirteen Weed Warriors did their first trail cleaning. They hauled out five large bags, three of recyclables and two trash.
Regents Park abuts the Collington property. The paved path goes through a mature forest of American Beech and Tulip Popular. A full canopy means there is very little understory, giving walkers lovely views along the way. The trail can be accessed from the Collington Perimeter trail, but should be used only by very fit walkers. Getting to the trail means stepping over a couple large fallen trees and traversing some very uneven ground. The trail is outside SARA coverage.
Many thanks to our Weed Warriors for all their back breaking work. You make your community proud!
