It’s a Blessing to be a Blessing

Get a buffet-style meal on Thursday, Jan. 21,  between 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. from It’s a Blessing to be a Blessing at a shared parking lot beside the City Farmers Market. Once you arrive, you will be instructed by the staff on how to pick up the lunch as safety precautions are being followed. Please note, this is on a first-come first-served basis.

Deirdre Norris, founder, has been blessed, is a blessing and is ready to serve you and share the blessings!

Maryland Strong Big Brothers Big Sisters

Amidst the trials and tribulations of the pandemic and other issues going on, Big Brothers Big Sisters continues its mission to offer youth/kids true friendship and genuine support. It is especially important during these challenging times to take time to listen, help and support our kids. It has been traumatic enough for the adults, imagine being young and going through all of this.

And to that end, mark your calendars on April 25 to support Big Brothers Big Sisters for its Maryland Strong Bowl for Kids’ Sake event being at Turner’s Dual Lanes. This will be an opportunity to do our part to support them so they can continue to mentor our kids. It may sound cliché, however, they are our future.
