Just a few short weeks ago the Oak Crest Community welcomed Stacey Schiano, new Philanthropy Manager! She has some great ideas in store for the community and she cannot wait to meet everyone.

Stacey comes from a background spent in the non-profit world…18 years to be exact! Her main focus was in marketing and development, and she is ready and willing to take on her new position. Before joining the Resident Life team, Stacey worked for the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America where she worked as the Director of Development. Stacey lives right around the corner in Perry Hall and loves how much shorter her commute is now! She has two daughters who she enjoys spending time with and taking vacations to the beach.

We all know with a new job comes new responsibilities, and Stacey is ready. She is currently looking to hire a new Philanthropy Coordinator who will help her stay organized and enter data. Her main focus right now is the 2016 Benevolent Care Fund Gala which takes place in September. She is still trying to learn all the ins and outs of the job and she is looking for residents to help her and share advice!

A “meet and greet” will be held on June 6th from 3PM-4PM for residents to come out and meet Stacey…however, there is one catch. In order to attend this event in the Garden Room, you must find Stacey beforehand and ask her for a ticket. She can be found walking the halls, or in her office in Village Square.

This program will air on Thursday, June 2nd at 10AM, 2PM, 7PM, 9PM, and 12AM. It will also be available the following day at oakcresttv.com. Let’s welcome Stacey!

Next week the Oak Crest Network is packed with information! There are three very important shows that you do not want to miss and below is the breakdown.

We start off the week on Monday, May 23rd with the P.S. Salons Meeting. This is the salon that will coming to the Oak Crest Community within the next month. Many of the same stylists who cut and style your hair will be working for this company, so you don’t have to go searching for another stylist! There was also a magazine given out to residents who attended the meeting with all the information they needed to know about the new salons such as price, location, and hours. Some things are still being worked on and discussed, such as pricing, but make sure you tune in to see if your questions were asked and answered!

Next, on Wednesday, May 25th, we air the Financial Town Hall Meeting with Mark Roussey, Stephanie Reel, and resident, Barbara Zorn. Not all members of the board will be present, but this is your chance to see Barbara Zorn and learn all she has been doing since becoming the Resident Board Member. This show focuses on the 2015 Audited Financials as well as the 2015 Annual Report for the Oak Crest Community.

To end the week, on Thursday, May 26th, we have our Monthly Call In Show with Mark Roussey and a member from the Executive Team. Remember this is a LIVE call in show starting at 10AM so please feel free to call the Studio (410) 663-3013 with any questions or comments you have! We love to hear what you have to say!

Remember all these shows can be viewed the following day after they air at oakcresttv.com.

A Park of Hope

A new park in Perry Hall looks to include all children and it’s here to honor the memory of a child of one of the founders.

The word “angel” can have many meanings, but it is always a reflection of something good and positive. Whether referring to a special person in our lives, an individual who has performed a good deed, or someone blessed with a special talent or gift, we all use the word “angel” in a complimentary and positive way.

Young or old, everyone can be someone’s angel. You’re an angel as a small child to your family, and when you help out a friend or neighbor in need. Even better, you’re an angel when you reach out to comfort a stranger. You’re an angel when you volunteer to help others who may not be as fortunate as you.

Angel Park – a new all-inclusive playground and amphitheater facility in Perry Hall has a very real and personal meaning to members of our community. The name was purposely chosen to represent a vision of an ideal setting for happiness and reflection. This name was selected to inspire support from the widest audience and to build the enthusiasm and momentum necessary to make it a reality.

Angel Park began from an idea that came to Kelli and Andy Szczybor after the loss of their baby boy, Ryan. From a sad origin, a bright and life affirming idea emerged – to build a place for laughter, activity and fun, for families and friends throughout the surrounding neighborhoods.

Kelli Szczybor, County Councilman David Marks, and Bill Paulshock will appear on Oak Crest Now on Tuesday, May 17th to discuss how the county has come together to make Angel Park happen and how you can help bring the park to life as well! The show will air at 10:00 AM, 2:00 PM, 7:00 PM, 9:00 PM, and 12:00 AM, and it will be available the following day at www.oakcresttv.com.

Media Arts is always coming up with new ideas to engage residents, and the show “On the Spot” does just that.

The latest series presents residents with various types of questions, letting them give their own opinion as to what they think. On this episode, some residents were asked what they thought about the drinking age, how they felt about same sex schools, and what they thought about an age difference when it comes to dating.

It was interesting to see the difference, and similarities, in some of the responses. The goal was to keep the conversation light and informative, furthering an open conversation rather than a debate. It was neat to hear the residents agree and then disagree with each other on the few topics given and we hope to continue this series down the road.

If you have any topics you would like to see discussed, please call the Studio at 410-663-3013—we would be glad to add them to our next show.

You can watch On the Spot on Friday, May 13th at 10AM, 2PM, 7PM, 9PM, and 12AM as well as on demand at oakcresttv.com the following day.
