Big Sit Day on Sunday, October 13, 2019, from 7 am to 3 pm.  It’s like a tailgating party that’s for the birds!  We will set up in our count circle in the parking lot by our visitor’s center to bird all day, counting all the species we see flying, swimming or walking by!  Bring chairs, binoculars, snacks, and hats.  All invited.  This national event is held at many count circles throughout the USA annually during Fall migration.  You don’t have to stay all day but do come out.  Finish the weekend with our Tally Rally dinner locally at @5pm.

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 davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

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
