Our Woodside neighbors across Georgia Avenue have their own version of our North Woodside Mosquito Busters project. Called WOMP (WOodside Mosquito Project) they have set up a website providing information and an easily accessible order form to purchase the traps at a 20% discount. The group has graciously looped us in on their project. We are so grateful!
How to order? Visit WOMP’s website. It takes just seconds to order – with a variety of payment options. Deadline for this exclusive 20% discount expires March 31, 2022. Distribution of purchased traps (some time in April) will be coordinated by WOMP. It is advised that our traps be set up in early May.
To date, we have 95 households in North Woodside participating in our program. Haven’t signed on yet to be a North Woodside Mosquito Buster? You can do so here.
Graduate students in the University of Maryland’s Historic Preservation program have spent the last semester researching the history of eleven houses in Lyttonsville and North Woodside (and one in Woodside).
You are cordially invited to attend the capstone presentation of this historic house and local community research project, which will take place on Wednesday, December 15th at 7 pm, at Woodlin Elementary School. The students will give brief presentations on the histories of each of the twelve houses in the larger context of the history of these communities, with an emphasis on the most useful historic resources for conducting house histories. This event is sponsored by the Talbot Avenue Bridge Committee.*
