Prince Frederick, MD – The Calvert Hospice We Honor Veterans program is proud to announce our first Veterans Resource Fair to be held on October 5 from 9 am to 3 pm at St. John Vianney Family Life Center (105 Vianney Lane) in Prince Frederick.
This event features local resources, organizations, and businesses that serve veterans, offer special programs for veterans or want to hire veterans. If you are a military veteran, active duty military member, or someone who is retiring or transitioning out of military life soon, you don’t want to miss this fair!
In addition to the vendors and resources, we are also offering presentations from three organizations that directly serve veterans: Warfighter Advance, Warrior Canine Connection, and Dr. Peter Curran, Medical Director of Home Care for VA Home Based Primary Care. These presentations will offer participants opportunities to ask questions, learn more about the programs, and learn what the organizations are able to do for veterans. At 11 am, the Army field band Country Roads will perform a concert for attendees.
The event features:
- Opening ceremony with remarks from Former State Senator Bernie Fowler and others
- Vendors and resources who serve veterans, hire veterans or offer special programs for veterans
- Food and drink for sale
- Live musical performance starting at 11 am
- Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Ceremony at 2:30 pm featuring George Owings, Secretary, Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs, a special presentation for Vietnam veterans, and a salute ceremony for all veterans present

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
