News Release, UM Charles Regional Medical Center

La Plata, MD- On Saturday, September 14, the University of Maryland Charles Regional Medical Center (UM CRMC) sponsored the Charles County Fair’s Annual Baby Show. Hosted by local celebrities Bunky (pictured bottom left) and Blondi and judged by UM CRMC team members (top row), this family-centered event was a huge success!

There were approximately 100 adorable participants, ages 6 months to 3 years old, accompanied by their enthusiastic family fan clubs. The Charles County Fair Queen Nicotina’s Second Runner Up joined in presenting the winners of each class with trophies and a small cash prize. UM Charles Regional’s family-centered focused values do not stop at this event.

The hospital’s newly renovated Birthing Center is set to open later this year and will provide all aspects of labor, delivery, and newborn care.

UM Charles Regional Medical Center has been a proud sponsor of the Baby Fair for over 20 years and is very excited to return next year and continue supporting even the youngest of Charles County residents.

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
