Once again, it is time for the West Laurel Civic Association's Annual Membership Drive!

The WLCA's fiscal year runs from January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2022, with annual dues of $20 per household (or $1 if $20 is hard on your budget)! Payment of your annual dues enables our civic association to function and entitles your family a vote in our elections on our budget, and other key decisions.

Your dues (plus any donations you kindly provide) go toward a wide array of activities that benefit your family and your neighbors throughout West Laurel. They pay for our HOTLINE newsletter, twice annual dumpster days and secure paper shredding services for our dues-paying members, some services to seniors, limited support to several worthwhile community organizations and events, including the scouts, Bond Mill Elementary School, Laurel High School Grad Night, rescue squad, etc. And they allow our civic association to function, including representing the community at public hearings and forums, providing input into legislation, working on multiple zoning projects, and working to get needed road repairs. This past year, we were successful in getting SHA to install safer road signage at the reopened Shell Station and getting the Shell Station to provide an air pump that is free for us to use.

Your dues are critical in maintaining our presence in your community - whether you own or rent your property! They allow us to expand our programs that support our community and keep West Laurel a wonderful place to live.
