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.

It might be hard to believe, but the Presidential Election is still a little under 6 months away. With the seemingly endless barrage of political advertisements, robo-calls, and news stories, many might be led to believe that the election is only a few short days away. All this information can lead to some confusion as to when the most important dates and information can be found. That’s where Oak Crest TV comes in. Continue reading

As we move into the first week of 2016, two of our shows focus on our elected officials; Senator Klausmeier and Delegate Miele. Public Affairs Manager, Jeff Getek, will conduct the interviews with each elected official, asking them all the questions our residents want to know. You will find out more about their personal life, what is happening in District 8, and what is on the table for the 2016 legislative session in Annapolis.

“Oak Crest is fortunate to have excellent relationships with our local elected officials. Senator Klausmeier, Delegates Bromwell, Cluster & Miele and Councilman Marks are frequent visitors to our community. Their appearances on WOCV allow our residents to learn about their backgrounds, positions on issues and most importantly, how to contact them. We look forward to continuing these interviews in 2016, especially surrounding the legislative session in Annapolis.” – Jeff Getek, Public Affairs Manager.

Delegates Cluster and Bromwell have already stopped by to tell us some topics on their agenda for the 2016 legislative session. Delegate Cluster plans to focus on schooling, hoping to provide each school with a police officer along with spending time working on some legislation in Baltimore City to better the community. Delegate Bromwell hopes to work more closely on getting financial support to our Veterans along with finalizing and planning certain laws for many of his various committees.

One common trend between all the elected officials seems to be their focus on reaching out to the community. They encourage all Oak Crest residents to contact them with their concerns or questions about District 8. As Jeff said before, Oak Crest is very lucky to get an opportunity to listen to these elected officials right in their own home. Even so, our community is able to become even more involved since Oak Crest is its own voting prescient; making it very simple for residents to vote and become involved.

The first show with Delegate Christian Miele will air on Tuesday, January 5th and the second show with Senator Kathy Klausmeier will air on Friday, January 8th. Both shows will air at 10:00 AM, 2:00 PM, 7:00 PM, 9:00 PM, and 12:00 AM and you will also be able to watch both programs online the next day at oakcresttv.com. Interviews with Delegate Bromwell and Delegate Cluster are already available on demand at oakcresttv.com.
