October 25th Meeting

Dear LaVale Neighbor,

You are invited to attend a meeting of the LaVale Civic Improvement Association, and the Braddock Run Watershed Association, this Monday, October 25th, at 6:30 p.m. at the LaVale Baptist Church Pavilion on the corner of Helman Drive and National Highway, across from the Holiday Inn.  Parking and picnic table seating will be available or feel free to bring your own seating.  We've moved the meeting time up from 7:00 to 6:30 for this meeting since the daylight hours are getting shorter.  The meeting will take place rain or shine.  This will be a general business and planning meeting to review current projects, including a continuing discussion concerning the feasibility of a senior center or expanded senior services in LaVale.  For more information call 301-697-1141 or visit http://www.lavale.org/ for contact information and details about the two organizations.  All residents of LaVale are members of the Civic Improvement Association, so if you're out and about Monday evening please stop by and let us hear your thoughts and ideas.

Tina Midgarden, Secretary

Agnes Yount Memorial Tribute

It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Agnes Yount on Monday September 7th 2020.  Agnes was a longtime resident of LaVale who recently moved to North Carolina, with her husband Ray, to live in retirement near relatives.  True to her private nature, her obituary was short and simple, stating that she was a retired FSU professor, a past member of the LaVale League of Women Voters and a past member of the LaVale Civic Improvement Association (LCIA).

Agnes Yount was so much more.  She served as a dedicated member and then as secretary of the LaVale Civic Improvement Association (LCIA) for as long as anyone can remember, well over 25 years.  She kept meticulous records of both the past and present functions of the LCIA as well as being an excellent source of historical information about LaVale.  Every officer, over the years, looked to Agnes for advice while they were in office.  Agnes regularly attended meetings of the Lavale Sanitary Commission, the Allegany County Board of Commissioners and the LaVale Neighborhood Crime Watch organization.  Agnes would then get important information from these meetings back to the LCIA membership.  She was also a 15 year member as "a citizen at large" of the Allegany County Waste Recycling Board and served as a volunteer at the annual Allegany County Recycling Day at the fairgrounds.

Agnes took great pride in having been involved in projects that benefited the community of LaVale such as the building of Cash Valley Elementary School and the current LaVale Library, the organization of the LaVale Rescue Squad and the Braddock Run Watershed Association, and the development of the National Highway Streetscape project, to name a few.  Always a willing volunteer, as recently as 2019, Agnes took part in work groups helping to clean up the LaVale parks, sweep the sidewalks, weed the gardens and pick up litter along the LaVale Streetscape.

Agnes loved and cared very much about LaVale.  It was her fond wish that more residents, especially the young families, would willingly take part in the future of LaVale to continue to move the community in a strong positive direction.  We've lost a great friend and champion of LaVale.  Thank you Agnes, for your dedication, hard work and caring.  Rest in Peace.

  • William Kight resigned as President on 11/26/2019.
  • Dorothy Kight resigned as Treasurer in December 2019
