I missed wishing everyone a Happy Earth Day yesterday. I know I am so thankful and blessed to live in such a perfect area with four-season natural spaces and public lands. This week several state parks throughout the state are hosting volunteer opportunities for stewardship of these important resources.

There are no official state park events planned for this weekend in Garrett County but feel free to make your own! Pick up trash, plant some trees, or go plogging!

For the next two weeks, several organizations – including FEMA – are hosting a mobile vaccination unit in Southern Garrett County. The unit will be stationed at the GCC Technologies and clinics will be operating from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday through Saturday, April 26 through May 1, and again May 4th – 8th.

This is the first Maryland example of this I’ve heard of, but, approximately 800 members of the military community who received COVID-19 vaccines at Fort Meade will likely need to get a third dose after it was discovered some of the vials of the Moderna vaccine were improperly stored.

More fish have been stocked. The North Branch Potomac River in Kitzmiller has received 1,500 golden and rainbow trout. Has anyone caught one of the golden trout? I’d love to see a photo!

What in the world is going on in the photo below?! If you’re a fan of The Bachelor, you may know what’s going on…. At any rate, local dock company, Deep Creek Docks installed the docks that were used in this episode! How cool!

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged is tonight at 6:00 pm.

Join Garrett Trails for “Celebrate Trails Day” tomorrow from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm.

Stop by my friend Tina’s market tomorrow — the April Showers Market — from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm. Tell her Sarah from Deep Creek Times sent ya and hopefully you’ll find just the perfect piece for your home!

Have a great weekend!
