Community at the Market: Progressive Cheverly and CERT

One of the things we love most about Cheverly is the wealth of engaged and active community groups.  This morning on the blog, we feature the final two of six community groups that will be on hand at Cheverly Community Market this Saturday. There's a lot to see, do, and think about this weekend!

Progressive Cheverly promotes economic fairness, social justice, basic human rights, a sustainable environment, a tolerant society and world peace through a more informed political dialogue and active participation in civil society and the democratic political process. Make sure to stop by and visit with these politically active folks!

Please note: Due to scheduling conflicts, CERT has had to cancel their appearance at the Market this Saturday. We look forward to having them with us again very soon. We do want to share news about Public Safety Day, September 25:

Cheverly Police Department 6th Annual PUBLIC SAFETY DAY

FREE FOOD, MUSIC, POLICE & FIRE DEMONSTRATIONS, including a POLICE HELICOPTER, MOTORCYCLES, HORSES, AND an exciting re-creation of an EMERGENCY VEHICLE EXTRACTION by Berwyn Heights Fire Department. Come see “Mandy the Clown” and BALLOON TWISTERS for the kids!!!

Cheverly CERT (Cheverly Preparedness Network CERT Program) focuses on basic home preparedness for disasters, natural and otherwise and getting training (by firefighters, EMS personnel and other experts) for community members to assist in emergencies. Visit Tom Ruyle at the CERT table this Saturday at Cheverly Community Market and learn about upcoming training sessions, emergency preparations, and activities that will be taking place during September's National Preparedness Month.
