Sharing is caring!

Today will be sunny, with a high near 39 and a low of 24 in the evening.  Winds will be light and variable and clouds will appear in the evening. The weather yesterday was perfect for snow making and the WISP snow makers were really turning it on all around the mountain. Here’s a photo of me during my lunch break yesterday… It was a bit chilly, but I look good, don’t I?

I bet you didn’t know that this week is Community Risk Reduction (CRR) Week, a grassroots effort by the nation’s fire services to encourage fire prevention and life safety education.  It is an effort supported by the state fire marshal and local fire agencies to get ahead of the 911 call and prevent issues before they occur.

The Deep Creek Watershed Foundation’s (DCWF) Board and its Advisors asked me to share their thanks to all that helped make the watershed cleaner and safer in 2019. This includes all that contributed time, effort and funding to the Foundation as well as State and local agencies and local businesses and individuals. Let’s all continue to help DCWF in their efforts to support, promote and advance scientific study, environmental protection and educational programs relating to the watershed. There’s only one Deep Creek Lake!

The NRA Basic Rifle course is being offered through the Continuing Education and Workforce Development division of Garrett College. The class is scheduled for Saturday, January 25th from 8:00 am until 4:30 pm at the College’s Northern Outreach Center located in Grantsville.

Here’s the Winter 2020 Deep Creek Dispatch newsletter from the Property Owners’ Association of Deep creek Lake. Some good information as always, including a brief tribute to their president Paul Weiler who passed away unexpectedly in December.

Safe travels and good luck to all those heading down to Annapolis for PACE meetings over the next few days…
