La Plata to host “Kids Show” today featuring Bay K9

News Release, Town of La Plata

Bay K9 is an all-volunteer Search and Rescue team located in Charles county. We provide bloodhound trailing services free to law enforcement agencies and other first responders.

Bloodhounds are scent specific by nature and therefore can be used to trail and find specific lost people under certain conditions. Currently, they have two Bloodhounds: Mathilda, 41/2 and Charlotte, 3 1/2 years old. Their mothers were litter-mates, so they are 1st cousins!

During the program, they will talk about what to do if you get lost and discuss a few useful items to carry with you on a hike. After the program, they will do a demonstration with the hounds to find a lost person from the audience

The Town of La Plata will host five summer shows for kids at Town Hall.  The shows are geared towards preschool and elementary age children and are approximately 45 minutes long.  The shows are free and open to the public. Today’s show starts at 10:00 a.m.

Shows will be held outdoors on the West lawn where the Friday night concerts take place (weather permitting – shows will not be moved indoors).  Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs for sitting. 

No concessions will be available, but you are welcome to bring drinks and snacks along.   

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
