MaCCRA Day in Annapolis Success
Over sixty-six residents from eleven MaCCRA Chapters attended the annual MaCCRA day in Annapolis. Residents from Broadmead, Charlestown, Collington, Edenwald, Glen Meadows, Heron Point, Mercy Ridge, Miller’s Grant, North Oaks, Oak Crest, and Vantage House visited their legislators’ offices and heard updates from Barbara Brocato, MaCCRA’s legislative liaison. A one-page sheet was prepared for legislators and is available here.
