New Event Added
Santa Claus Coming to Piney Orchard
You better not pout. You better not cry. Why? Because on Saturday night, December 14 at 6:00 p.m. Santa Claus will be arriving on the Capitol Fire Truck for a visit to the Piney Orchard Community Center. For those wanting to watch from their windows, or waive as Santa's truck comes through the community, Santa will be entering the community just before 6:00 p.m. at the entrance at Waugh Chapel Road and proceed down Strawberry Lake Way and then right on Stream Valley Way. Just look for the lighted and decorated fire truck.
Everyone is invited to bring their cameras to come meet and greet Santa outside the Community Center for this FREE community event. Santa will available to take photos with the whole family and there will be warm cider and cookies for everyone. At 7 p.m., the Anne Arundel High School Chorus will be singing your favorite holiday songs, so join your family, friends, and neighbors in sharing the spirit of the season.
While there is no charge for this event, we do ask you to please bring a new unwrapped toy for the annual Toy for Tots campaign, so that less financially fortunate children in our community can experience the joy of Christmas.
Community Volunteers Needed
Many activities such as Movie Night at the Island pool, the Halloween Party and Breakfast with Santa have been able to be held because volunteers from the community stepped up, helped organize, setup, clean up and run these events.
We would hate to see any of these events cancelled, but without more volunteers they may not be able to continue. PLEASE become a volunteer and assist with Activities.
If you are willing to serve your community or need further information please contact the POCA office at
