Deep Creek Winter Sports Team (DCWST) registration for the 2019-20 Winter Season is now open! Children ages 7 to 18 can compete regionally and locally in sanctioned ski races and snowboard competitions. This year the team is also offering a “New Members” reduced dues rate for first time members.

We heard that the Kitzmiller Empowerment Group is thinking about sponsoring (holding) a hunter safety course in Kitzmiller. If you’re interested in taking a course (including kids and adults), please contact Mike Brady 301-453-3193 or Heather Berg 301-334-7730. Please don’t call the DNR, this is just an attempt to see who would be interested before we continue with the plans. Thank you!

Nearby Comedy Club at Mezzo’s in Cumberland, MD will be bringing in Kevin Farley (the brother of late Chris Farley) to perform live on Saturday, November 23rd at 8:00pm.

The lake temperature is falling … and, the lake may be freezing over soon. Monitor the status on our lake webcam. A top-level sponsor is available!

U.S. Congressman David Trone and Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen (all D-Md.) announced the recent award of nearly $85,000 from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development Housing Preservation Grant Program funds to repair and rehabilitate the homes of low and very-low-income residents in Garrett County. The nonprofit corporation Garrett County Community Action Committee, Inc. will offer low-income homeowners grants and/or low-interest loans to fund critical home improvement projects and ensure that residents meet property and safety standards.
