Join in on the fun and find Crabby on June 1st! The Grand Prize will be two half-day kayak rentals generously donated by Patuxent Adventure Center Paddle Sports, other great gifts from participating businesses will be awarded also. Come to Downtown Leonardtown and check in at the 2 Broke Girls Boutique (22760 Washington St.) for your handout/ list of participating businesses. Walk around town and try to find the crabs while filling in the handout all of your findings. When completed, turn the handout back in at the 2 Broke Girls Boutique. All correct entries will go into a bucket and we will randomly draw the winners!
Other fun planned for the evening: the First Friday Music Series continues as C Bass & the Rockfish will play at the Downtown Square from 6-8 PM. Our “extended” First Friday hours will include the return of the SoMar Drummers and the audience participation Drum Circle at the grassy field next to St. Mary’s County Arts Council, 22660 Washington St from 8-9 PM. Bring a chair or blanket to sit on for both musical events.
Throughout town art studios, shops, and restaurants will be open from 5-8 PM with several galleries hosting Opening Receptions for their new shows and featured artists. Merchants will be offering one-evening only specials, some with “crabby themes”. Be sure to arrive early so you have time to complete the Scavenger Hunt, check-in at the 2 Broke Girls Boutique will begin at 5 PM sharp. Festivities beyond Downtown Leonardtown are also scheduled (check out the weekend music schedule at Port of Leonardtown Winery). See the Leonardtown First Fridays Facebook page for details about specials and offers for the evening.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
