Time to wake up and smell the coffee, Hyattsville! Here are today’s five “good” you should know:
1. Tomorrow is the Great Magruder Park Egg Hunt. Don’t forget to call City Hall and make your reservations. The even is free and there’s a pancake breakfast to kick the whole event off.
2. There’s a City Council meeting on Monday evening. The agenda will be available on the city’s website by 5 p.m. today.
3. Have you met Hyattsville’s City Clerk Doug Barber? He serves the City Council and manages city records, along with a boatload of other responsibilities. You can call him at 301-985-5009 or email him at email@example.com.
4. Ever wonder who your neighbors are? The 2000 U.S. census information says Hyattsville has 14,733 residents. The projected 2009 population was 15,604.
5. From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. the Anacostia Watershed Society along with a group from America's Charities will plant the final 20 of 100 trees in Magruder Park. The trees include River Birch, Sycamore, Black Gum and Pin Oak.
