— The Robinwood Housing Community celebrated its annual Community Day on Saturday, October 19, 2013. Carolyn Keen, president of the Resident Council has been in charge of organizing the community day celebration for the last three years. She said it’s a day for the residents and community members to get together and celebrate the neighborhood in which they live.

Keen said Robinwood is a community of change and she welcomes all of Annapolis residents to come out and visit and see the changes. The local fire station Engine #35 provided area children an opportunity to meet firefighters and explore a fire truck.

Alderman Kenneth Kirby and Alderwoman Sheila Finlayson were on hand to lend support to the community event.

Community Day included free flu shots offered by Rite-Aid; food and drinks; a moon bounce; music and games. Vendors sold books, jewelry, clothing and handmade NFL items.

Keen expressed gratitude to committee members who helped organize the events including: David Harris, vice president; Raquel Wells, treasurer; and Bernyce Hight, sergeant-at-arms.
