Trout’s House Seafood has specialty Smith Island cakes for sale this weekend — you can buy the whole cake or buy just a slice. Original and red velvet available! I’m not sure of anywhere else to get Smith Island cakes here locally…

Effective October 1, 2008, the Smith Island Cake became the State Dessert of Maryland (Chapters 164 & 165, Acts of 2008; Code General Provisions Article, sec. 7-313). Traditionally, the cake consists of eight to ten layers of yellow cake with chocolate frosting between each layer and slathered over the whole.

Donate your old bikes to help support the Bike Rodeo! There will be a Silent Bike Auction and the funds will help support the pump track project. You can bring your bikes to the Bike Rodeo, or drop them off anytime at the Deep Creek Lake Lion’s Club park at 1249 Bumble Bee Rd at the bike rack at the trailhead. Just drop the Lions a message letting them know you dropped off a donation and they’ll store it inside until the rodeo event.
