Date: Wednesday, March 13th, 2019
Time: 7:15 p.m.
Location: Potomac Community Center
If schools are closed because of inclement weather, the meeting will be cancelled.
Speaker: Kathleen Michels, PhD
Topic: A neurobiologist and public health scientist, Dr. Michels has been active in the environmental community since the 1990's. She helped start the Safe Healthy Playing Fields Coalition which has worked tirelessly to bring awareness of the health risks inherent in synthetic playing fields. School administrators have ignored the mounting evidence of toxicity from the materials used in making these fields. Dr. Michels will discuss the health problems they represent and the additional concerns of disposal once these fields have worn out.
As always, the public is welcome
When farmers bartered for supplies at Perry Store in Offutt’s Crossroad in 1880, Potomac was an agricultural community where transportation relied on the C&O Canal and horse-drawn wagons on dirt roads. Today, we see something far different.
Yet much remains constant. Great Falls, the Potomac River, and the Canal still draw us. Forested stream valleys, rural roads, and Potomac Village still define our community. The look and feel of Potomac today is no accident. Much of what we hold dear is due to the vigilance of volunteers working to preserve what is best here – a community that values our history, the environment, and our role as “Green Wedge” in the overall vision of county planners.
We invite you to become one of the team to insure the continued beauty of this area. If you are interested in preserving the beauty of Potomac, please become a member.
