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.


Happy birthday wishes go out to Chloe Weaver, who turned 9 years old on April 20, and Chase Weaver, who turned 7 on April 23. Happy birthday.
