There will no longer be a need to break down cardboard boxes which can be placed near the recycling bin. There is a limit of one wheeled cart per household. The carts will be assigned to homes using a serial number. If you move, the cart should be left behind for the new resident. To order a wheel...

Recession Gardens are back in style again and are becoming popular through out the country. In the last few months I have seen more than one article referencing the phenomenon and its revival throughout our country.  They require hard work and the effort of the community but the pay off is well worth it.

SHOULD KENTLANDS ROOF STANDARDS BE CHANGED? The Kentlands Board of Trustees has heard proposals to address new materials and the aging community. The roofs are getting old and the cedar shakes require a lot of expensive maintenance. Is it time to introduce new roof products. If you have input on this question, send a note to the club house or attend one of the community sessions. Don't forget the May happy hour on Friday May 15 from 5 PM to 8 PM. Please RSVP to
