It was wonderful to celebrate the re-opening of the City of Annapolis for the 4th of July with so many of you. It was so beautiful to see our city full of life and community during the Independence Day parade & activities throughout the holiday weekend. Thank you to everyone who joined us in walking in the parade, I truly appreciate your time and support.
I am looking forward to having a summer full of community events and seeing so many of you out in your neighborhoods.
Team DJ Summer of Giving
The unofficial motto of my office is “Food in Bellies, and Diapers on Bottoms”. While I work to serve and represent you in the House of Delegates, I also aim to serve our community and want to ensure our neighbor’s basic needs are met. This was the driver behind the “Delegate Dana Jones Summer of Giving.”
Anne Arundel County Public Libraries is opening a new supply pantry to help our community members gain access to essential supplies. As part two of our Summer of Giving, we have partnered with Discoveries Mama and Baby Community Pantry for a July diaper drive. This drive will begin Saturday, July 17, and run through Saturday, July 31st.
If you wish to contribute, you can bring your donation of diapers directly to Discoveries: The Library at the Mall OR you can make a purchase from their Amazon wishlist to be delivered directly to the pantry.
Visiting The Harbour School to Celebrate Independence Day
The Harbour School has been a regional leader in providing a personalized education experience to so many kids who have learning differences for nearly 40 years. I got to see these amazing teachers, staff, and students in action during their annual Independence Day Festival.
