Just heard the keynote speaker for the 43rd annual Western Maryland PACE in Annapolis on January 24th and 25th will be Lieutenant Governor Boyd K. Rutherford. There will be other dignitaries present at both the Thursday evening reception and the Friday morning breakfast. PACE is always a great event to meet and greet other locals and second home-owners as well as state government officials.

Don’t forget to share this if you know a family in need with a dog: Come to the HART Animal Center between 10:00  am – 2:00 pm Friday to get free dog food from a donated supply HART just received.

The Northern High School Boys Basketball team hosts rival Southern High School Friday evening in a county rivalry game starting at 6:00 pm. Should be some good, passionate action and fun at this one.

There may still be room at Haley Farm’s Wellness Retreat running from Friday evening into Sunday. The retreat includes all-inclusive healthful meals and cooking demos, plus personal and group fitness training, wellness coaching, nutrition education, and a take-home exercise and wellness plan.

Black Bear Tavern has some nice music on tap (along with some good beer) this weekend, with Matt Tichon on Friday evening, then Paul Burger Saturday evening and also Trial by Fire later that evening.

MoonShadow Cafe has multi-instrument artist Mateo Monk appearing on Saturday “whose music is a synthesis of multiple genres of world roots music, heavily informed by the spontaneous freedom of psychedelic jam culture.” He has performed with a number of well know artists yet is a “new age” one-man-band with virtuosity in a number of instruments.

Mountain State Brewing Company hosts Bingo on Sunday at 1:00 pm, with valuable prices to say nothing of their great brews, pizza and other goodies.

There’s a worthwhile, free training effort scheduled for February 12th at Uno’s.  TIPS training (for those that serve alcohol at events) will be put on by the Garrett County Health Department and is supported by both HART for Animals and Garrett Lakes Arts Festival (GLAF), who sponsor the annual Art, Wine and Beer Festival fundraiser. If you are a volunteer pourer, please consider attending. Here’s more specifics:
