Heard the K-12 Arts Fair at the CARC was a huge success Saturday.  I had to be at another event on campus, but the art crowd was significant and came away impressed with all the exhibits and performances. Congratulations to all our talented students! By the way, the CARC pool reopens today after a week of cleaning and maintenance.

Attention boaters: Boating accidents have claimed the lives of four people in Maryland so far this year (NOT at DCL).  Last year, none of the nine boating victims were wearing life jackets. It only takes 60 seconds for an adult to drown and 20 seconds for a child. Yet, in many cases, life jackets are stowed out of reach or are still in their original wrapping.

Here’s an opportunity to help a local entrepreneur and Power of Possibilities (POP) graduate from a few years ago. Chris was a winner in the POP Competition for his Card Caddy product and is now launching a new Dice Tower. His start-up has gone international and this is his latest product, so please consider helping a fellow Garrett Countian succeed.  And, for the record, DCT has no financial interest in his business or sales, just trying to help a local entrepreneur.Card Caddy Dice Tower
