Living History

Not many of us can claim to have met living history, but here's a unique opportunity to do just that in the form of AOTB's own Bill Keyes. This amazing gent was at the Bannker-Douglass Museum in downtown Annapolis last Saturday signing his new book, William S. Keyes: Keyes to a Long Life. If you misssed that, you can still benefit from Mr. Keyes' stories and artwork right here in the neighborhood.

His book is an amazing compilation of memoirs, put together by his dear friend, Fern Underdue. It underscores the life of a man who has spent a lifetime in service to his country, community, and friends. Read about his adventures fighting with General Patton in Europe, as a DC cop and restauranteur, teaching high school, and living through a time the rest of us can only read about.

Mr. Keyes invites you to stop by his house at 3459 Rockway Avenue to pick up your copy of the book for only $20. But do call first (410-263-5837) as he may be out substituting at a local high school, teaching kids about art, history, or most importantly, life.


Arundel-on-the-Bay, founded in 1890, is located on the Middle Chesapeake Bay within sight of the Thomas Point Lighthouse, south of the Severn River and north of the South River, on a peninsula bounded by the Chesapeake Bay and Fishing Creek, near Annapolis, Maryland.

AOTB Elections

Welcome to our new Board members--Alison Buckler and Dave Zeman--and a note of sincere thanks to outgoing board members Dick Peyton and Roxanne Veal, as well as everyone else who volunteered to serve. You may not have been called upon this time, but don't go anywhere, 'cause we'll always need ya.

Our Secretary, Pam Duncan, will get the exact elections results numbers out with the minutes, but you should all know that as a sign of the esteem all of these folks are held in by our neighbors, it was a pretty tight race with a difference of about a dozen votes separating the next three after Lori Strum who will continue on the board. Thanks for everyone's willingness to serve and we all look forward to a year of new and fresh ideas, but mostly we're looking forward to everyone working together for the place we all love to come home to--AOTB.


New Residents, Including Renters — The Association wishes to extend its outreach to all new residents, including renters in Arundel on the Bay. If you have either recently moved into AOTB or can help identify new residents, please contact Dave Delia.

Passes for VisitorsWe all enjoy the beauty of the beach at Arundel on the Bay and we naturally invite our far-flung friends and family to share in those delights. To ensure that our community can sustain the special opportunity enjoyed by homeowners and their guests, the Association has launched a Visitor's Pass Program which provides each household with up to two guest passes for its visitors to our beach and our fishing,
crabbing, and boating facilities.

This new measure not only provides our community with more control over access to our shores but also gives an added layer of security. If visitors are found without a pass, they will be asked to provide one or leave the premises.

While we did not create the beach, we do work hard to maintain a clean and well-kept
environment, and we believe the new program will enhance that process. As members of this thriving community, it is important that we all do our part in protecting its pristine natural resources and achieving greater security. Passes can be obtained from Lori Strum, via
