A little snow, please

We are just dying for a snowstorm here at my house. We tried to go sledding in that last little dusting. I think we got more mud on us than snow. I see a few glimmers of hope in the weather report this week, so maybe we will get our wish.

Did you know?

Did you know a bicentennial pageant was held at Fort Frederick on May 15, 1956? The pageant was titled "Portal to Peace." Six-hundred students from Washington County junior and senior high schools participated.

E. Russell Hicks, from Potomac Junior High, and Nora Snyder, who was the principal at Clear Spring Elementary, wrote the script for the pageant. The bicentennial attracted nationwide recognition.
