Everyone deserves a voice. We want the Board of Education to hear ours!

Join friends of Rock Creek Hills Park at tomorrow's Board of Education meeting!

That's Monday, May 23, at 6:30 p.m.

Most of us had only hours notice before the Board's arbitrary and unreasonable April 28th proclamation that they would seize our small park. Tomorrow the Board is scheduled to vote to approve a contract with an architectural firm to develop a site plan to replace Rock Creek Hills Park with a middle school complex. The meeting will be at the Carver Educational Services Center, 850 Hungerford Drive, Rockville, MD 20850 (that's across the street from Montgomery College). Let's go!

Everyone deserves a voice. We want the Board to hear ours. We need as many people as possible to show up to make our voices heard!

Also, you may sign up to testify at the meeting. Public comments begin at 6:45 p.m. Call 301-279-3617 tomorrow morning, if you want to speak at tomorrow evening's meeting. Call between 10:00 and 10:30 a.m. if you wish to speak to address issues relating to the day’s agenda; call between 11:00 and 11:30 a.m. if you wish to speak to address other issues. [Again, the Board is scheduled to vote tomorrow to fund the site plan to replace our park with a middle school complex; their agenda includes this for 7:30 PM: "3.2.2 Architectural Appointment — New Bethesda-Chevy Chase MS #2 Feasibility Study".]

Bring friends; bring family; bring signs!
