On the morning of Saturday, November 23, 2019, at 9:00 a.m. 49 volunteer fire/EMS department members arrived at the Charles County Fair Ground to offer a hand installing Christmas lights throughout the exterior of the fairground buildings in preparation for the Kris Kringle Christmas Market.
This event was a lot of fun, a chance for members from other departments to chat with each other while completing the mission. Please see the photos taken this morning by Melissa Donais (mother of one of our cadets) and group photo by Chrissy King (mother of a cadet from last year).
We thank all the members who came out to assist and help spread the holiday cheer. I received a phone call from the Fair Board this afternoon who were overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and commitment of our volunteers.
GREAT JOB, I’m so proud of each of you!!!!
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 email@example.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
