This morning, I had the opportunity to attend an event at the Methodist Church recognizing the volunteering work of our longtime resident Donna Weene.

As you know Donna is part of this community since 1983 and has been involved with church groups, Girl Scouts and civic affairs.

She and her husband Seth grew up in nearby Adelphi but decided to move to College Park, where she wanted to raise her children in a friendly neighborhood

She has been a member of the North College Park Community Association (NCPCA). She organized school supply donation drive for the Hollywood Elementary school,  and picnic event

She has been the member of CBE for many years now has served selflessly the committee in many projects CBE worked on

Even now with her challenging health condition, she continues to serve. Just two days ago, she called me and told me that Fazlul I heard you are doing  a community cleanup next Saturday, (May 26), and I want to volunteer with my daughter

I also want to thank the community members, in particular Anne Bouldac for organizing the event.

Donna, we thank you and look forward to continuing to work with you in the future.
