Hi City Council Members,

I wanted to let you know that a bunch of Lower Laurel families will be
meeting up tomorrow (Friday) morning to ride to school together. The MPPD
will be accompanying us and have already put out a digital sign on Coleman
alerting drivers to exercise extra caution on Coleman Ave. We greatly
appreciate their help in making this a joyous and safe ride for kids. We'll
be meeting at Seminary Oaks Park at 7:55am. More details below. Come join
us if you can!
