Prince Frederick, MD – Calvert Hospice is pleased to announce our 3rd annual Festival of Wreaths. This fun, family-friendly event will be held November 17, 2018 from 10 am – 3 pm at Calvert High School in Prince Frederick. Admission is FREE! There’s something for every member of the family at the Festival of Wreaths. Beautiful, handcrafted wreaths will be on display; this year, you will be able to bid on your favorite wreaths via cell phone all day, or let our helpful staff help you create a bid. We will also have a selection of wreaths and other items for immediate purchase.

For a small donation you can make your own wreath or centerpiece from fresh greenery. Create some fun crafts with your kids and visit with Santa.

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

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
