PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – Sept. 12, 2019 – You may not need a reason to do yoga, but it might feel extra good to do yoga for a reason. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, the Calvert County Department of Parks & Recreation is partnering with Living Beyond Breast Cancer to host a “Reach and Raise on the Road” yoga event. Reach and Raise is a morning of connection, support, and yoga for everyone.

The event will be held Sunday, Oct. 6, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Hallowing Point Park. The cost to participate is $24 per person. Participants of all ages are welcome and will be eligible for giveaways, door prizes and more.

To register for this and other Parks & Recreation events and classes, citizens can create an account using the department’s online registration system. The activity number for this event is 140600. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Department of Parks & Recreation Therman Gray Memorial Scholarship Fund and Living Beyond Breast Cancer education and support programs.

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
