We also want to thank Joe Chuckla for being helpful to our Board and thank him for his service. We will miss you. Welcoming Dustin and thanking everyone else for agreeing to serve again this year.

December 3, 2020. Joe Mullenax, Allegany Business Consultants. I may interview Joe to attain the information for taxes and year 2021 future tax issues. May try the Zoom again but will need more people to attend. The Zoom meeting was not well attended. Disappointing due to the amount of information for all properties, Not just City of Hagerstown Properties. Topics were for all rentals in all areas of Maryland. Paul did an amazing job with all of the information.


This change will be PERMANENT. All future meetings will

be on the first Thursday of the month.

Avoiding Identity Theft:  1. Dumpster Diving or Trash Bag Rummaging. Shred any and all paperwork that has your name and address on it, and especially if it has an account number or membership number on it. When throwing magazines away, shred the label and any ordering forms that may have your account number them, such as in mail order catalogs. 2. Phishing. They pretend to be financial institutions or companies and send spam or pop-up messages to get you to reveal your personal information. They will even call saying they are from a facility you use (bank) Banks will send information in the mail for special loans and programs. Do not give out mortgage information or anything else personal from someone who called you. If you did not initiate the call, hang up. 

Keep in your prayers

All of our troops, Past & Present. They fight for all of the freedoms we so easily take for granted. Don't ever forget 9-11 happened and the devastation. Honor our troops!!. Bless all of the families of these troops. God Bless you all.
