Dear Avenel Residents:


Below please find some important Community information.

2018 ACA Shred Day  

The 11th Annual Shred Day shredding event will be held on Saturday, May 12th at the Avenel Swim and Tennis parking lot, rain or shine.

Saturday, May 12th, 9am - 12pm
Avenel Swim and Tennis Parking Lot
10001 Oaklyn Drive

Residents will be able to dump their papers for shredding into shred bins. There is no problem shredding (along with office paper) paper clips, staples, rubber bands, folders, file folders, and labels, but they WILL NOT shred newspapers, film, hanging file folders, plastic, 3-ring binders, cardboard, heavy plastic, boxes, trash, floppy disks and/or CDs.

E-Waste Recycling: 
Residents will be able to utilize e-waste recycling to dispose of A/V equipment, data storage devices for destruction, computers, laptops, printers/scanners, TVs under 40", cell phones, and other electronic waste. Computer monitors WILL NOT be accepted.

We hope that you will find this service convenient to use and a secure way to dispose of confidential materials. 
NCCF Clothing Drive

In doing our part to help the community at-large, ACA staff is participating in a clothing drive on behalf of The National Center for Children and Families (NCCF). Please bring new and gently used seasonal clothing for men, women and children in need to the ACA office until June 1. The NCCF has the greatest need for new socks and underwear for children.

If you prefer to make a donation by check, please make your check payable to "NCCF" and drop it off to the ACA office before June 1. Your donation will go directly to the 44,000 children, youth and families the NCCF serves each year in the Washington Metropolitan area, including Montgomery County.

For more information about the NCCF, please visit www.nccf-cares.org.
Volunteers Needed

Have you ever thought about volunteering in your community? Now  would be a good time, as Avenel Community Association could use  some volunteers on the Ad Hoc Social Committee. The Social Committee has done a great job over the past few years organizing community  events like the Pool Opening Social, Ice Cream Social, Wine & Cheese Holiday Party and many others.

If you would like to become involved and help keep these events going, or if you would like more information on the Social Committee, please contact the Association at customerservice@avenel.net
. Your community can be as great as you make it! 

Political Signs 

In accordance with Montgomery County Code, temporary political/candidate signs can be displayed 30 days before an election and up to seven days afterward. Signs should not be posted or displayed on doors or in the windows of homes. For more information, please contact the ACA offices.
WSSC Billing  

One of our residents has recently received notice of an overpayment of past payments billed, resulting in a credit of over $2,000. The Association is not responsible for residents' WSSC bills, but as a courtesy, we are inquiring on behalf of the resident to see if anyone has had a similar experience of high billing. If so, please contact the Association at customerservice@avenel.net.
Spring & Summer Projects 

 As residents plan for spring and summer projects, please remember to submit your Modification applications for review. Any exterior change to your home or property requires an application submission and approval by the Modifications Committee. Whether you are installing a fence, painting your shutters, or removing a tree, please remember that an application is required and must be approved before work can begin.

Applicants have six months from the approval date to commence work, and the project must be completed within one year from commencement. The application form may be downloaded from the ACA website ( click here) or picked up at the ACA office.
