Hello everyone, I truly hope the sound of my words find you well. I send condolences to the families who have lost a loved one. After the long shut-in, I believe it’s time for us to peek our heads out the door. At least for some outdoor events— still wearing our masks!

A few outdoor events are coming up this week and I’m really excited about that. My boo-boo and I are planning on going to check them out.

The first one we plan to go to is the Art Festival in Westminster, Maryland at the Westminster City Hall grounds. Their festivals have always been a lot of fun with the food vendors; live entertainment; and the arts and crafts are always fantastic. So if you get a chance check it out, it starts at 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. The Westminster City Hall grounds are located at 1838 Emerald Hill Dr. in Westminster. Remember it’s FREE!

Coming up very soon is the Annapolis Juneteenth Celebration featuring live entertainment with the Chuck Brown Band; Chelsey Green and the Green Project; Kindred and the Family Soul; Young Dylan; and Count The Cost Band and Art Sherrod. The event will also include a parade, Education Project, African Art, and lots of arts and crafts.

This event takes place over two days—Friday, June 18 and Saturday, June 19, 2021 with a VIP Reception on Friday, June 18 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and the parade and music festival kicks off Saturday, June 19 at noon until dusk. See you there! For more information, visit:

Another event coming up is celebrating “Prince” featuring Junie Henderson at The Birchmere located at 3701 Mount Vernon Avenue in Alexandria, Virginia on Saturday, June 5, 2021 starting at 7:30 p.m. Baltimore’s own Craig Alston will be performing in the show. For more information call 703-549-7500.

My husband, “Shorty” and I want to say congratulations to our dear friends, Carlton and Darlene Douglass on their 25th anniversary. I hope they have 25 more.

Well, we don’t have much more to say at this time, but hopefully we will see you somewhere. Enjoy this wonderful weather. If you or someone you know may be having an event in Baltimore, please get in touch with me.
