Local Community Activist to be Honored with Street Sign

Hello everyone, I sure hope the ladies enjoyed their Mother’s Day weekend. We are truly blessed to see another Mother’s Day, because many of us have lost our mother and wish she were still with us. I believe they are with us in spirit and are looking out for us!

I believe Mother’s Day took all the headlines for this past week’s events, except for a young lady who has worked in the community helping others for so many years and will now get her due— I am talking about Margie Fleming Brinkley, known to many as “Lady M.”

“Lady M” was raised in the Turner Station neighborhood and later the family moved to East Baltimore. After 63 years, she is a third generation East Baltimore resident, still residing in the 2700 block of E. Preston Street. Her passion for public service has earned her numerous awards and honors from schools, churches, community organization, city, state and county officials.

Margie has diligently worked in and around the Berea Community. She is presently a notary public serving on the State Central Committee for the 45th District of Maryland.

On Saturday, May 26, 2018, starting at noon, “Lady M” will be honored with a celebratory street sign in the 2700 block of E. Preston Street, which will be followed by a reception and a birthday celebration at Fort Worthington School at 2710 E. Hoffman Street from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. I am so proud of her. She is a good person with a good heart. I like the idea that someone decided to give her flowers while she still can smell them. Please join me while we show her much love, this event is open to the public; but to RSVP, call Deborah Robinson at 410-963-1094 or Lydia Johnson at 443-730-3792.

The last thing I want to mention to you is the “Bangin’ with the Boomers Luncheon, sponsored by the Baltimore Times/Times Community Services, Inc. It was postponed last week because of all the Mother’s Day events.

However, we are strong and ready to go on Thursday, June 14, 2018 from noon to 3 p.m. at the Promenade DanceSport Facility located at 2605 Lord Baltimore Drive in Windsor Mill, Maryland. Your ticket includes: a buffet lunch, live entertainment, DJ playing oldies, line dancing and hand dancing, door prizes, vendors for your shopping pleasure.

Oh! Also you can bring a deck of cards— tables will be set up so you can play your favorite card games, such as pinochle, spades, bid whist, etc. Just give me a call at 410-833-9474 for tickets and pass the word. I want to see all my readers and fans join me for this special event.

Well, my dear friends, I got to go now, but remember if you need me, call me at 410-833-9474 or email me at rosapryor@aol.com. UNTIL THE NEXT TIME, I’M MUSICALLY YOURS
