Council retreat set for Mar. 16

Mayor Invites Community for Lunch and Input

BLYTHEWOOD – The Blythewood Town Council is throwing its annual retreat on March 16 and inviting the community for lunch.

“We always invite the community to all of our meetings, but I especially like them to come to our annual retreat. That’s when we plan for the next year and I think everyone in the community should have input into that planning,” Mayor J. Michael Ross said.

To that end, Ross is hoping to entice them with a lunch buffet. The retreat, set for March 16 at Doko Manor, will include the mayor, town council and administrative staff.

There will be a community lunch open to the public from 12 – 1 p.m.

“So even if someone can’t stay all day, we hope they will at least stop by for lunch and talk to us about what they would like to see done in the town,” Ross said. “We call it the Taste of Blythewood.”

Restaurants are invited to contribute food items for the luncheon. Those wanting to participate should bring food items to Doko Manor for set-up by 11 a.m.

“This is a great opportunity for the public to have a say in our government and become familiar with various tasty cuisines in our town…all at the same time,” Ross said.

Restaurants or food vendors who wish to participate, can call Hazel Kelly at Town Hall  (754-0501) or email [email protected].
