Dear Block Leader/Prospect: 


A Block Leader identifies and directs concerns of neighbors to the appropriate 
service provider, provides valuable information to neighbors about available 
services and program opportunities, organizes block activities such as block 
parties and cleanups, and meets regularly with other block leaders to share 
information and ideas.   The goal of the Block Leader Program is to identify 
and support a block leader on every block face in Abell, Barclay, Charles 
Village, Harwood, Old Goucher, including residents, business owners, and 
property owners. 


If you have not yet done so, please go online to and 
sign up to receive from Charles Village Community Benefits District (CVCBD) the 
weekly "Crime Alert" and monthly "All that Dirt" which contain valuable 
information including block leader updates. 


1.    Next Regular Meeting: Thursday, January 23, 2014 at 6 p.m. at 29th Street 
Community Center at Barclay and 29th Streets. Please RSVP to   We are meeting monthly for the 1st 6 months and 
then will convert to bi monthly meetings after that. 


2.    Block Leader 2-day Training:   Thursday, February 13, 2014 at 2434 St. 
Paul Street and Thursday, February 20, 2014 at GHCC offices in 3500 block of N. 
Charles Street. Please RSVP to Training to be 
conducted by Greater Homewood Community Corporation (GHCC) and will provide you 
with skills you can use in communicating with your neighbors and with helpful 
information on how the Block Leader program works. 


3.    Thanks to all of you who attended the December 19th Pot Luck Get 
together.   It was exciting to hear about your ideas for block activities and 
to have such a good mix of veterans and newcomers. 


If you hear of anyone who is interested in learning more about the Block Leader 
program, please give them my email address and ask them to contact me. 


I hope to see you soon.
