Thursday December 20

Yesterday was a nice day at the lake. Today’s weather will be mostly cloudy with rain likely after 3pm; a high near 44 and a low around 40 degrees.

On Saturday, Garrett County hosted the 3rd Annual Police Providing Presents event.  Volunteers from all five (5) Garrett County law enforcement agencies along with the Garrett County Department of Social Services, Garrett County Board of Education, Garrett County Health Department and AmeriCorps partnered together to help make the event possible. Here’s a photo of a few of Garrett County’s Finest with Santa. Thank you all for all you do every day.

Did you know you (and maybe a friend or two) can bring your own needlework – whether it’s knitting, crocheting, cross stitch, embroidery, or lap quilting and join others for two hours of relaxation and fun this afternoon from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm at the Oakland branch of the Ruth Enlow Library? Well you can and it’s free and there is no registration necessary. To me, this is a kind of laid-back networking event for folks with needlework skills.  Good idea.

Our Town Theatre opens their stage to anyone who has something to share this evening from 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm as part of Open Mic Night. Music, short stories, poetry, dance, skits, etc are all welcome. So come out and share your talent and have some fun.

The Allegany Arts Council is hosting their Holiday Market Artisan Village at their gallery on Centre Street in Cumberland through December 30th. There will be local handmade items, jewelry, goodies and seasonal activities for you to enjoy.

The Maryland Economic Development Association (MEDA) is hosting their 2019 Legislative Outlook for Economic Development Conference in Annapolis on January 10th from 8:00 am – 1:00 pm. Here’s a link to the draft agenda for the event. MEDA is THE organization for economic development in the state and I am sure there will be representatives from our county government there. I wanted to make sure our readers are aware as economic development is a critical topic in Garrett County and other parts of the state.
