Have a blessed Good Friday.
Good Friday is the day when Christians commemorate Jesus Christ’s crucifixion. According to the Baltimore Catechism – the standard US Catholic school text from 1885 to the 1960s, Good Friday is good because Christ “showed His great love for man, and purchased for him every blessing”.

We shared this blurb before but this United Way survey is ending Sunday. Will you take a few minutes to respond? Your responses are confidential: How has COVID-19 affected you?
One point of additional information: Mike reported a week ago on 91 Keep Maryland Beautiful grants. Our reader Linda clarified that Garrett County didn’t receive any of these funds because these grants have to be applied for and projects right now are limited due to COVID – which is the main requirement. In the past, several local projects, between $500 – $1,000 each have been funded through this program.
There is a scholarship for high school seniors looking to following the Emergency Management career pathway. Sorry, it’s last-minute but applications are due today.
It is bittersweet to be on my own with Deep Creek Times now but Mike and I are on good terms and will still be working together. I have some really exciting projects in the works for DCT! Please continue to share your photos, news, feedback, and love for this area with me — I love meeting each of you, seeing the fun you have, and sharing your stories! 😃
I hope you have a Happy Easter. There are a few egg hunt, dining, and church services planned this weekend.
Ledo’s Pizza at Deep Creek has a new menu: order online or stop in Sunday through Thursday 11am-9pm and Friday and Saturday 11am-10pm.
