All residents are invited to come and be part of decisions affecting our community. Overbrook Community Association’s Board members and Committee chairs will report on the latest happenings.
We would like to hear from you as we look forward to the year ahead. The OCA exists to bring the community together.
Look forward to welcoming you!
We start building the set for the Musical this Wednesday and we need 4 to 6 volunteers. Under the direction of our set designer, David Magladry of Gladstone Theatre fame, volunteers will cut, construct and paint the set.
This is an incredible opportunity to get involved in something special, something that is already making a difference in the community!
Here are the build times. If you can commit to one or two times, that would be great. For the whole time, fantastic!
