Take a stroll through time and explore some of the Perry Hall community's Christmas traditions.

Perry Hall Improvement Association president said school safety is a renewed concern.
Dennis M. Robinson, Jr., president of the Perry Hall Improvement Association, released the following statement.

Perry Hall High School Principal George Roberts and his approach to his job set a standard for excellence in leadership and citizenship.
Like most Perry Hall residents, I was particularly pleased to read the news that Perry Hall High School Principal George Roberts was recognized as the "Fifth District Citizen of the Year" for 2012. Councilman David Marks couldn't have made a more appropriate and timely gesture to showcase this fine member of the Perry Hall community. I first had the pleasure of meeting George Roberts shortly after his arrival as principal, back in 2008. Principal Roberts wasted no time in coming to meet with the board of directors for the Perry Hall Improvement Association, of which I was a member. Roberts shared with us the results of a detailed planning effort that he and staff from the high school had just completed. This document was the embodiment…

Dennis M. Robinson, Jr., president of the Perry Hall Improvement Association, submitted the following as a letter to the editor.

Although we are generally reluctant to open the door if we do not recognize the person, I opened the door. The person standing in our doorway told me that she lives in the same house number on a different street in 21128 and frequently receives mail intended for my address. She proceeded to tell me that, although she routinely returns packages to the post…
