Spring Into Frederick Family Fun by Charissa Hipp, Digital Marketing & Media Relations Manager, Tourism Council of Frederick County

Visit South Mountain Creamery, Maryland’s first on-the-farm dairy processing plant that home delivers farm-fresh and allnatural products throughout the region. You can watch cows being milked in the milking parlor each afternoon and help feed baby calves every day at 4 p.m. The perfect ending to a trip to the creamery is a visit to the Kountry Store to get some super-premium ice cream made on-site. And be sure to mark your calendar for the annual Spring Festival at South Mountain Creamery on May 2 and 3.

SPRING 2015

If you want to extend your farm experience, visit the Sugarloaf Alpaca Company in Adamstown. You can feed the alpacas, learn about the spinning mill process of turning the alpaca fiber into yarn, and find out the benefits of alpaca fiber. In fact, yarn and projects made from alpaca fiber can be purchased at the Shoppe located right on the property. If you visit on May 2 and 3 you’ll be there to see the annual Alpaca Shearing Days. June 27 and 28 is the 3rd Alpaca Babypalooza, where you’ll enjoy some of the nearly two dozen babies that are expected to be born this spring.

Warmer temperatures make spring the perfect time of year to enjoy the outdoors in beautiful Frederick County. The county has many family-friendly activities perfect for the young and young-at-heart.

You can feed the alpacas, learn about the spinning mill process of turning the alpaca fiber into yarn, and find out the benefits of alpaca fiber. A great way to spend a spring afternoon or evening is watching a Frederick Keys baseball game. The Keys offer a fun, family-friendly environment right in the City of Frederick. Kids eat free on Mondays and are invited to run the bases after every home game. The Frederick Keys are the Single-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles and their season begins at home on April 9 against the Winston-Salem Dash.

Rose Hill Manor Park and Children’s Museum has hands-on, child-friendly activities for all ages. Learn about Maryland’s first governor, Thomas Johnson, and the history of agriculture and transportation in Frederick County. The property features the manor house, icehouse, log cabin, blacksmith shop, carriage collection and two barns. The park will host an Easter Egg Roll on April 4. If you enjoy nature and the outdoors, you’ll love doing the ParkQuest program at Cunningham Falls State Park. The program engages families in outdoor activities, allowing them to experience state parks throughout Maryland. ParkQuest allows families to relax, unplug from technology, and experience the beautiful natural and cultural resources on public lands. Sign up at http://dnr2. maryland.gov/parkquest. At Monocacy National Battlefield off Urbana Pike, families can learn about the 1864 “Battle that Saved Washington.” The visitor center is the best place to start your visit. There you’ll find a museum with hands-on activities for children, booklets for the Junior Ranger program (ages 5-14), and information about walking and hiking trails on the battlefield. The battlefield celebrates National Park Week April 18-26 and on Saturday, April 25, children of all ages can play the same games children played 150 years ago. The day will conclude with a night sky program.

Frederick County Public Schools recently established The Earth and Space Science Lab 2.0 Fund to support the purchase, replacement and/or upgrade of high-cost equipment and improvements for the lab.

Creating a Better Frederick Now and For the Future by Joyce Summers, Director of Marketing and Communications, Community Foundation of Frederick County In 1986, concerned citizens joined together to set the foundation for positive growth and development of the Frederick community. These visionaries – Donald C. Linton, CPA; W. Jerome Offutt, Esq.; and Charles V. Main, former Frederick Chief of Police – believed that an organization created by the community to serve the community would create a positive, lasting change for all people in Frederick County. Today, this organization, The Community Foundation of Frederick County, is a powerhouse of support, investing more than $38 million back into community nonprofit organizations and scholarship funds since its inception.

Funds are established to support a wide variety of areas, including agriculture, the arts, health and human services, education, youth programs, historic preservation, elder care and much more.

“They are people who want to give back and inspire change and people who want to memorialize a loved one,” she said. “These donors include individuals, families, business entrepreneurs and others that have resources to share with those in our community.” In fact, in fiscal year 2014, the Community Foundation received more than $6.1 million from more than 1,945 donors. It’s that spirit of giving that steadily contributed to the growth of more than 660 funds during the Community Foundation’s 28-year history.

“It’s been eye opening to see how generous our community is,” Day said. It’s a generosity that can be linked back to a group recognized as the founding donors. Those individuals, each contributing $25,000 during a period of five years, established the roots for more than 20 unrestricted funds that formed the base for the Community Foundation’s discretionary grantsmaking philanthropic activities. “We connect people who care with causes that matter, but you don’t have to be a philanthropist like Bill Gates to make a difference,” Day said, adding that many of the generous supporters contribute to an existing fund or create new ones that either honor the memory of a loved one or support a specific cause or organization.

Funds are established to support a wide variety of areas, including agriculture, the arts, health and human services, education, youth programs, historic preservation, elder care and much more. She points to members of the Community Foundation’s Acorn Society, those individuals who “plant a seed” by starting a fund and agreeing to grow the fund to at least $25,000 within two years or less. Planned giving is another way that individuals can create a legacy while contributing to Frederick County’s future growth and development. It’s this future vision that enables the Community Foundation to advance its mission: “Connecting people who care with causes that matter to enrich the quality of life in Frederick County now and for future generations.”

hi story

Frederick County, Al Fresco by Duane Doxzen As the temperatures warm and the days grow longer in springtime, our attention is drawn to outdoor activities: gardening, sprucing up the homestead, baseball and lacrosse, and, of course, picnicking!

Dining outdoors has been regarded as a pleasant warm-weather pastime for as long as recorded history. The English word “picnic” can be traced back only about 400 years to its French origins in the term “pique-nique,” which, loosely translated, more-or-less equates to BYOB. With New World beauty all around, Americans took to picnicking like few cultures before (or since), especially in the Victorian era. Although fried chicken and potato salad are nearly mandatory elements of the picnic today, old-fashioned turn-of-the-20th century picnics could be anything but simple. Leisurely repasts were a rare occurrence for poorer folk, but fairly common for the well-to-do, and the fare was both abundant

histo ry

and varied. Roast duck, pheasant, rabbit and all manner of side dishes were on the menu. Picnickers of that era literally took the indoors outdoors when they dined al fresco, sometimes hauling metal stoves, china, and all manner of home furnishings to a remote picnic spot. Frederick countians were no different. Men dressed in long-sleeved starched white shirts and ties picnicked with their sweethearts in long flowing dresses. Well-used picnic spots dotted Frederick and the surrounding countryside. The banks of the Monocacy River, especially the area near the city off Gas House Pike, provided particularly popular picnicking grounds, with hunting parties, church groups and families all drawn to the watershed each spring.

Each community had its own favorite, such as the top of White Rock on Catoctin Mountain near Yellow Springs. Victorian and early 20th century countians considered local cemeteries, with their quiet and manicured settings, completely appropriate places to picnic. Public cemeteries, such as Mount Olivet Cemetery in Frederick, were especially frequented by picnickers, who could dine with departed strangers as well as family members. Some local cemeteries even resorted to instituting strict rules of conduct, demanding a level of proper decorum for overzealous picnickers. While we might bring an iPod — or, for some of us old-schoolers, a “boom box” — to our outdoor fetes, large picnics of yesteryear brought the band. From the late 1800s into the early 20th century, large and small communities around Frederick County fielded brass bands. These bands were wellorganized enterprises, with militarystyle uniforms and caps, and could have as many as 30 active members. Bands earned between $10 and $20 per day for entertaining picnickers.

Picnickers of that era literally took the indoors outdoors when they dined al fresco, sometimes hauling metal stoves, china, and all manner of home furnishings to a remote picnic spot.

Our springtime urge to get out and about remains as strong today as it was then. We can pack our baskets and head for any number of convenient picnic spots, from Baker Park in Downtown Frederick to the many municipal parks located in towns throughout the county, to other protected natural areas, such as Gambrill State Park, Cunningham Falls State Park and the C&O Canal Historical Park, to name just a few. This spring, remember that when you head out for your own picnic you are continuing a traditional as long as human history, and following in the footsteps of generations of county residents.

For More Information on how Frederick residents lived through the years, visit the Museum of Frederick County History at 24 E. Church Street, Frederick.

Just don’t forget the potato salad.

New Businesses Open Across Frederick Rebecca Carrera moved to Frederick in 2001 and brought with her a dream. Then a cosmetic buyer for Nordstrom with years of corporate cosmetic world experience up her sleeve, she believed that her adopted hometown could use an injection of “keep it simple, less is more� beauty.

SPRING 2015

Filled with unique on-trend beauty essentials for face, body and nails, the shop also includes a brow design bar, and an exclusive aroma bar from Anam Cara Botanicals. Consider a custom blend consultation to create your perfect potion. Or simply browse the affordable, organic, all-natural products from lines such as M Steves, One Love Organics, and Billion Dollar

Made-to-order sandwiches filled with your choice of fresh vegetables, falafel, hummus, and more, as well as hand-cut sweet potato fries, and buttery baklava will tempt even the biggest carnivores, too.

Brow. Rebecca and her team have curated an impressive collection of goods meant to make any girl a true maven. Interior designer and furniture connoisseur Christopher Z. Ritchie opened Smokestack Studios on Market Street last summer, with an eye for stylish furniture that honors a sense of history. Walking through the doors, you immediately understand what Ritchie aimed to create — an imaginative studio that screams individuality. Much of that individuality is what drew Ritchie’s attention to Frederick. “I found Frederick just passing through and fell in love with the small businesses, local artists and community-driven focus,” Ritchie said. “As you can see, there are no big-box brands downtown, only local, hardworking stores. I wanted to find a location that was a true community, where people say ‘hello’ to each other and support local businesses. “The store has been hugely successful… We offer interior design services and this part of the business is completely booked.” Ritchie’s own custom furniture line, Barn, is made from recycled beams and other materials, enhanced only with natural finishes to retain the furniture’s organic appeal. Smokestack Studios features an online warehouse that allows customers to browse by collection or category. Ritchie is all about customer satisfaction. “We design with passion and want to create the perfect space for you, with quality furniture and classic designs.” Downtown Frederick’s shopping district has been steadily extending its boundaries beyond the “main drags” of Patrick and Market streets. Continuing the trend is a new accessories shop called Besties, located on North Court Street, half a block down from City Hall. In this small and cozy storefront, you’ll see Besties’ featured products: handbags. Lots and lots of handbags! Tons of colors, patterns, materials, and sizes abound, surely one for every taste and style. Vegan and vegetarian dining options can sometimes be challenging to find. But Frederick is fast becoming a spot to count on, especially with SPRING 2015

What to Expect When Buying or Selling a Home in 2015 by Cassandra Bailey, RE/MAX Achievers Welcome to the new age of electronics – when, on a daily basis you carry around a tiny, portable computer in your pocket in the form of a smartphone. With the click of a button you can buy just about anything you want from anywhere in the world; with the tap of a finger you can talk “face-to-face” to a friend miles away. Suffice to say that the technological age has settled in, and is here to stay.

32

SPRING 2015

Where does that leave the world of real estate? Multiple websites and apps are available for you to search for your dream home at your leisure. Social media pages are stacked with the best information to help you through the buying and selling processes. The real estate industry is now rich with videos to service your every need. Here is a snapshot of what to look for as you embark upon your real estate journey:

Virtual Tours A virtual tour is defined as “a simulation of an existing location, usually composed of a sequence of videos or still images. It may also use other multimedia elements such as sound effects, music, narration and text.” All real estate agents can and should be using virtual tours for clients. There are a multitude of platforms available in which these can be created. Note for sellers: make sure your agent is uploading your virtual tour to YouTube, as many buyers are starting their personal housing searches on this site. Note for buyers: search YouTube for virtual tours in your area to preview homes before making a list of properties you want to see in person.

HouseLens The next step up from a standard virtual tour, HouseLens is a company that offers the service of creating “full-motion walk through video tours.” Your agent has the ability to create a walk-through of your home that is so realistic, buyers will feel like they are there with you. What this means for you as a seller is a 24/7 virtual open house, and scheduled showings by potential buyers who are emotionally invested in your home because they feel like they have already been inside. This translates into a faster sale for you!

Vine There are many video apps that are useful for real estate. Agents often make short video clips to give you information about their listings, advice about your local market, and insight into their personalities. Vine (www.vine.co) allows users to create 6-second videos which can showcase a home, an event at a real estate office, or a fun property visit with clients. As a buyer or seller, Vine is a great way to see the lighter side of real estate, research your local market trends, and also get to know more about the agent(s) with whom you choose to work.

Drones If you know what a drone is, you will absolutely want your agent to use one to showcase your listing! But wait – the FAA has ruled the use of drones for commercial activity illegal. This means that while they take amazing aerial videos of a property, the use of one can get an agency into severe trouble. Keep this idea on the back burner, though; someone will figure out how they can be used to the benefit of everyone interested in real estate. In short, videos can be used for many purposes in the real estate industry. We shop online for food, clothes, cars, vacations, and now, more than ever before, our next homes. We often make decisions based on what we see, not just what we read; videos take that visual to the next level. YouTube recently posted this impressive stat — “Over 6 billion hours of video are watched each month on YouTube—that’s almost an hour for every person on Earth.” Whether you are a buyer or a seller, it is in your best interest to check out the ways in which your potential realtor is embracing technology in their marketing plan.

Wide Variety of Camps Ready to Educate, Entertain Your Kids This Summer By Rosa Garcia

With warmer weather approaching, finally kids can be unleashed into the great outdoors. With one cold freeze after another it seemed like the unforgiving weather would never break. But spring is here and high-spirited young ones are expending their restless energy in the crisp fresh air, and gearing up for summertime. Summertime is when Frederick County is bursting with a variety of camps to keep every child busy. With so many options, here are some tips and resources to help figure out which camp is right for your family.

36

SPRING 2015

Identify your child’s passion Honing in on your child’s special interest or skill is the ultimate way to have him spend the summer hours. Does he love baseball, playing an instrument, reciting lines from famous playwrights or transforming a blank canvas into fine art? If so, choose a camp that supports that passion. And your little guy’s or gal’s summer is sure to be a home run. Some options:

Maryland Ensemble Theatre FUN Camp:

Frederick County Parks & Recreation:

Children ages 7-16 experience all things theater-related, such as acting, voice, movement, make-up, costume, set and prop design. Sessions include Creating Theatre, Musical Theatre Project, Performance Project and Improv Intense.

The recreater activity guide is the summer “must have” for any family in the county. It’s free and available for download online. The nearly 75-page book contains a camp experience for almost every sport and interest under the sun. Before choosing a sport camp, think about how competitive you want your child’s experience to be and don’t hesitate to ask before you sign up.

Frederick Regional Youth Orchestra: Student musicians can extend their musical training and performance skills though summertime orchestra and ensemble playing. Kids are required to have played their instrument for at least one year.

Delaplaine Visual Arts Center: Each week beginning in June, the Delaplaine will be offering summer camps. Kids can learn multiple art techniques to create everything from dinosaurs to comic books.


Child A ctivities and Educat i on

Determine if you want a more educational or entertaining experience Three months away from a learning environment is enough time for any kid to experience some brain drain. The right summer camp can help parents bridge the learning gap between June and August. Don’t worry about your child retaining a newly acquired foreign language or math skills, there are options that will keep you covered.

Frederick Community College (FCC): Enrichment programs such as Kids on Campus and Teens on Campus provide entertaining methods to explore science, art, history, reading, writing, math and more in a college setting.

YMCA: The Y offers multiple camp choices, including foreign language. Kids can concentrate on one language or try a sampler language camp. The sampler session includes Spanish, French, American Sign Language (ASL), Chinese and Braille.

Consider whether your child is ready for sleep-away camp Spending time away from home at summer camp builds independence and confidence, but it’s not for every child or parent. If you want to try it out, starting close to home helps. There’s one right here in the county and the other is just over the state line.

Camp Tall Timbers:

Camp Airy:

Just an hour and a half away from Frederick, this camp offers a sleep away experience for kids as young as first grade. Campers create their own schedules. Plus, boys and girls participate in noncompetitive sports, where the emphasis is on sportsmanship and fair play.

This is a boys-only sleep away camp for Jewish youth ages 7-17. Sister camp Camp Louise is located in Cascade. Campers enjoy a wide range of activities including athletics, dance, drama, music and more.

Do you want a camp that offers support for children with special needs? Deciding what type of camp is best for a child with a disability first starts with the camp’s accommodations and accessibility. Asking for the support is key, and many camps are already equipped to provide a fun and safe experience for all children.

Camp Greentop:

Noah’s Art Camp

Located in Catoctin Mountain National Park, Camp Greentop provides traditional camp activities with a 2:1 camper to counselor ratio. Staff is able to assist campers with a variety of needs. Programs include overnight camp, day camp or primitive League Pioneers.

Campers as young as preschool and up to 14 years old can enjoy creating art with clay, paint, papier-mâché and more. All supplies are provided, and there is an average of one adult for every eight campers. The camp is equipped to customize lessons for all learning styles.

Amanda Hatcher attended the first Camp Jamie in 1991.

A Camp Like No Other Submitted by Hospice of Frederick County As she watched her heartshaped balloon float into the sky, Amanda Hatcher felt flooded with emotion. She thought back to 25 years earlier, when she had released a similar balloon soon after her own mother died.

As an 8-year-old “Little Buddy” at Hospice of Frederick County’s first Camp Jamie in 1991, Amanda got help dealing with her emotions as well as a welcome break from her worries. Campfires, crafts and swimming alongside other grieving kids were part of an unforgettable weekend that jump-started Amanda’s healing. Last summer Amanda, now 33, returned to Camp Jamie, this time as an adult volunteer “Big Buddy,” paired with a child who needed her help.

SPRING 2015

“I was really surprised at how emotional it was for me,” said Amanda, now a wife and mother, and a deputy with the Frederick County Sheriff ’s Office. “I (had so many strong feelings) during different activities, like writing and reading aloud a letter to my mom.” Amanda found herself further healed by making friends with other volunteers, watching the Little Buddies deal with emotions in a healthy way, and having some good, old-fashioned campground fun.

“The camp really helps kids understand their grief better, in an environment where other kids are going through the same thing.” his father’s death during the circle, then broke down, sobbing. It was the first time since his dad died that he was able to cry. Amanda’s “Big Buddy” Jill Schumacher has remained a big influence in her life, even today.

“The camp really helps kids understand their grief better, in an environment where other kids are going through the same thing,” Amanda said. “And it’s just a nice break for kids who have had to deal with such an emotional time in their lives to get out and go to camp.” Simply put, there is no other place in the region like Camp Jamie. Often, adults try to protect children from suffering by not talking about a death; this can actually exacerbate grief. At Camp Jamie, organizers Linda Kinna-Engel and Denise Watterson explain, children are encouraged to talk about their feelings. “We hold on to the memories, but let go of the pain that the loved one’s death has caused,” says Engel, a bereavement services coordinator for Hospice who has attended 18 camp weekends. “Perhaps the most difficult activity is the sharing circle, where children are invited to tell their story for the first time to everyone at camp…” One year, a 13-year-old talked about

Children ages 6-14 are invited to attend each year and have access to a nurse, psychologist and bereavement specialists, as well as a Big Buddy. Amanda had often thought about returning to Camp Jamie as an adult, especially since her own Big Buddy, Jill Schumacher, had made such a huge impact on her life. Amanda still keeps in touch with Jill, who has become like family. “Jill was a very gentle and sweet Big Buddy, and she genuinely cared about me,” Amanda said. “She made me feel loved.” A lot of healing can take place in just one weekend. Children are gently focused on learning coping skills, building selfesteem and trust, and talking about anger, guilt and letting go. It’s an experience that Amanda Hatcher knows truly helped change her life: “I love Camp Jamie, and I feel so blessed that I’ve been able to be a part of it as a Little Buddy and as a Big Buddy.”

‘Groceries for Seniors’ Provides Nutritious Food to County Residents by Jessica Paguirigan, volunteer coordinator, Frederick County Department of Aging

A key goal of Groceries for Seniors is to provide more vegetables and foods with proteins, which are often the most expensive products in stores. Such nutritious foods can also be difficult to obtain at food banks, which often provide products loaded with carbohydrates. The program will provide fresh seasonal produce when available, as well as canned goods and other products. Although the available food varies at each event, one might find canned sliced carrots, canned spaghetti sauce, canned salmon, milk or orange juice among the items to take home. Individuals who qualify for the food donations earn less than $1,437 per month (households for more than one person add $503 per person) and are unable to buy enough nutritious food to provide adequate meals every day. Those who have come to the event have stated that Groceries for Seniors has helped them to stretch their limited budget for food. 50

SPRING 2015

More than 90 Frederick County households, or 152 residents, received donated food from ‘Groceries for Seniors’ at the Frederick Senior Center in early February. A partnership of the Frederick County Department of Aging, the Western Maryland branch of the Maryland Food Bank and Seed of Life, Inc., the program provides groceries to qualified residents on the first Friday of every month.


se n i o r

Programs such as Senior Dining, Meals on Wheels, and Groceries for Seniors have been developed, and are being expanded, to meet the growing needs of an increasing elderly population. The food distribution events every first Friday at the Frederick Senior Center are designed to be fast and easy for clients. Those receiving bags of groceries only must show photo identification and are able to quickly fill out paperwork as they receive their donations. The Department of Aging organizes the senior center parking lot into three lanes so recipients may drive through to pick up food rather than standing and waiting in the cold. Residents who are unable to drive to the event are allowed to have others pick up groceries for them. The success of Groceries for Seniors depends on community contributors and volunteers. At the Feb. 6 event, seven Department of Aging staffers were assisted by 15 volunteers. These volunteers organized and distributed groceries, directed traffic and helped recipients register. Volunteers came from Hood College, Shepherd University, the Frederick County Commission for Women, the Frederick County Health Department and other organizations. Programs such as Senior Dining, Meals on Wheels, and Groceries for Seniors have been developed, and are being expanded, to meet the growing needs of an increasing elderly population. The elderly population in Frederick County is expected to nearly double from about 40,000 today to nearly 80,000 by 2030. The Senior Dining program is open to any senior at the four centers in Frederick County: Brunswick, Frederick, Urbana and Emmitsburg. Older adults can receive a meal for a donation of any amount. Anyone wishing to partake in Senior Dining should call their local senior center to find out when meals are being served.

Free Transit Benefits Available to Frederick County Employees by Adrienne Moretz, Community Relations Manager, TransIT Services of Frederick County With the abundant amount of transportation options available to commuters in the Washington, D.C. metro region — many of them free and with significant tax savings for both the employer and employee — it seems that more employers should offer transit benefits to staff. Offering these benefits can help to increase job satisfaction, reduce turnover and boost morale of employees all while saving tax dollars. Risk and uncertainty are valid concerns when considering offering transit benefits. However, with the variety of options and support from numerous public and contracted agencies, implementing these benefits has much greater rewards than pitfalls. TransIT Services of Frederick County provides a program called “Employer Connection,” which takes companies “beyond the bus” to offer the support, guidance and implementation assistance needed to create a happier workforce. TransIT’s Employer Assistance Program provides free consultation, advice, strategies and tools. Employees can be offered the opportunity to participate in programs such as “Guaranteed Ride Home,” a complimentary commuter insurance that provides free rides home in the event of unscheduled overtime or emergency, up to four times each year. Other alternatives, such as compressed work weeks or telework programs can boost morale, reduce absenteeism and turnover, as well as increase productivity in the workplace. As the cost to replace employees increases, the need for transportation demand management solutions are becoming more and more important for recruitment, retention and satisfaction. Become an Employer of Choice with these strategies; improve your organization’s success,

revitalize the economy and increase the quality of life for all residents and employees of the local region. Flexible Benefit Options Offering fringe benefits such as pre-tax deductions or direct employee subsidies to your staff provides an excellent outlet for additional benefits to your employees. Employees save on income and payroll taxes with pre-tax dollars and direct employer benefits are not subject to payroll taxes. In accordance with the IRS Code 132(f ) Commuter Tax Benefit, taxfree limits include: • $130/month for Transit and Vanpools • $250/month for Commuter Parking • $ 20/month for Bicycle Commuting Reimbursement LEED Certification Assistance At least 30 percent of LEED Certification points can come from implementing Alternative Transportation Options. There are two types of categories of worksites where offering commuting options can be submitted for LEED Certification: Existing Building (LEED EB) and New Construction (LEED NC). TransIT can help you earn points by conducting surveys, setting up telework programs, building near transit and more. Commuter Tax Credit The Maryland Commuter Tax Credit program allows businesses operating in Maryland to claim a 50 percent tax credit

against the cost of providing alternative commute programs and services to its employees up to a maximum credit of $50 per participating employee per month. The credit may be claimed against the personal income tax, the corporate income tax or the insurance premium tax. Transit instruments, vanpools and their related costs, Guaranteed Ride Home programs and Cash in Lieu of Parking are all eligible expenses. Application is easy: • Submit a Maryland Commuter tax registration form to the State of Maryland •C  omplete Form 500CR (modified as possible) to apply tax credits toward the total tax liability for the calendar year in which commute expenses are paid to or on behalf of participating employees. Vanpool Incentive Program (VIP) Designed to encourage the startup of new vanpools originating or terminating in Frederick County, the VIP offers funding to a limited amount of unoccupied seats for up to one year.

Griffin Art Center: A Haven for Creative Souls by Rosa Garcia

The Griffin Art Center in Downtown Frederick immediately envelops you with its cozy wood and brick décor. Walls with precisely hung frames hold paintings of rural landscapes that bring to life inanimate objects that rarely get a second glance in nature.

54

SPRING 2015

The face of the art center, its gallery, beautifully conveys the talents of local artists. Co-founder Walt Bartman’s passion for art not only drives his personal work, it also fuels his energy to teach and inspire artists of any age. That is why art center was opened in 2012.

“Frederick is full of talent. The purpose of The Griffin Art Center is to provide the community with an opportunity to learn art,” Bartman said. “Our philosophy is to deliver inspiration (and) purpose and to teach technique. We want to nurture the spirit of being an artist.”


arts & Le i sur e

“Our instructors are what makes us different from other programs. They are all practicing artists that are showing and selling their work.” Equipped with 24 artist studios, three art galleries and four teaching studios, the art center allows students to hone their skills in multiple art forms. “It’s a creative workout. Sort of like a gym for artists,” said Christopher Madden, resident artist, instructor and engraver. “Whether you attend a workshop or drop in for open paint, you’re going to learn something new and refine your technique.” Throughout the year, workshops are taught by nationally renowned artists. Some include sculpting with Homer Yost, photography with Harriet Wise, landscape and figurative painting with Jeanine Songco Martin or etching and engraving with Christopher Madden. One of three engravers at the national treasury, Madden has engraved the presidents’ images on the bills you use every day. He recently presented President Barack Obama with his official portrait. “He liked it!” Madden said, modestly.

All of this creativity isn’t exclusively for adults either. The “Young Griffins” program offers a range of classes for children. Kids as young as 6 can begin to explore drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, weaving and collage. Kids even sculpt live animals in clay.

The Griffin Art Center 437 N. Market Street Frederick 301-637-0415 www.griffinartcenter.com

“The Griffin Art Center provides an atmosphere for young people to be creative,” Bartman said. “They are our future and that’s why children have always been welcome to share this space.” Classes in all art forms are available for beginners, intermediate and advanced students. What is the importance of the arts? It’s about fostering individuality and Bartman answers it best: “It’s about having your own ideas, seeing those ideas develop in front of your eyes. It’s a way of thinking, exercise for the brain.”

“Our instructors are what makes us different from other programs. They are all practicing artists that are showing and selling their work. We are teaching things we have done ourselves for years. We can share our experience as artists,” Bartman added. Walking through the art center is an experience in itself. During a tour, you’ll quickly become immersed in the atmosphere, surrounded by works in progress, portraits of the human form and bright palettes of paint that could be on any gallery wall.

BURKITTSVILLE

Burkittsville is a virtually unchanged example of an American townscape of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, when the town was a service center for the rural area around it. Today, Main Street’s buildings are still bordered by fields of crops and dairy farms, although there are no longer any commercial establishments in the town. Burkittsville became closely involved with the Civil War when forces of the Union and Confederate armies engaged in the Battle of Crampton’s Gap, a bloody prelude to the Battle of Antietam.

EMMITSBURG

Emmitsburg, a quiet town nestled at the foot of the mountains, offers peace and tranquility. Incorporated in the early 1800s, Emmitsburg was the home of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. She established the first Catholic school in the U.S., that grew into St. Joseph’s College. The property is now home to the National Fire Academy and Homeland Security. A short drive away is Mount Saint Mary’s University. In Emmitsburg you can relax but still be within driving distance to major cities such as Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Harrisburg. You are just a few miles from the Gettysburg Battlefield, Ski Liberty Resort and numerous golf courses. MAYOR Donald N. Briggs POPULATION 2,814 as of 2010 Census TOWN OFFICE 300 A S.

Middletown

Middletown is a small, rural community steeped in American history. It is located in the beautiful Middletown Valley that stretches between the Catoctin Mountains on the east and South Mountain on the west. A young Lt. George Washington, while surveying the South Mountain area, reported that the valley to the east was one of the most beautiful places he had ever seen. Middletown continues to evolve from a settlement of farmers and ranchers to one of tradesmen, craftsmen, businessmen, clergymen, commuters and retired folk—without losing its agricultural roots. From the stately old Victorian-style homes and soaring church steeples to the rustic dairy farms and modern housing developments, residents find in Middletown a refuge where they can enjoy small-town life as it used to be.

Mount Airy

The Town of Mount Airy is a nationally accredited “Main Street Maryland Community” and holds the State of Maryland’s esteemed “Community Legacy” designation. Located directly off of Interstate 70, it is about 45 minutes from both the Baltimore and Washington metropolitan job markets. One can quickly become enamored with downtown Mount Airy and its small-town charm, quaint old buildings and friendliness that takes you back to a time long past. Mount Airy has experienced a dramatic increase in growth, but because of effective growth management and land use strategies, still retains that quaint, small-town atmosphere. It boasts a booming downtown with community and cultural events, retail establishments, antique and craft collectible shops, cafes and restaurants.

Walkersville

Walkersville is a combination of two villages that were settled by German immigrants in the mid 1700s and early 1800s. By the late 1800s, the villages of Georgetown and Walkersville had grown so intertwined that it made sense to combine them into one entity, which was named Walkersville. Today, Walkersville aggressively pursues fiscal responsibility, recycling projects, and innovation. In 1995, it was credited with having the first State Police bicycle patrol in the nation. There are four schools, residential developments, a shopping center, several businesses and institutions, and numerous restaurants in the town. Walkersville has managed a rapid population growth wisely, enabling it to maintain a friendly, small-town atmosphere. BURGESS Ralph W. Whitmore

Woodsboro

Early history suggests that the Woodsboro area was a hunting and trapping ground for a wandering tribe of Susquehanna Indians. From early times, the settlement was located at a crossroads on the Indian trail running from the Chesapeake Bay to the mountains. When the stagecoach became the primary mode of transportation, the place became an important stop on its itinerary. Today, Woodsboro is still primarily an agricultural area, but an important industry is centered on the three lime quarries that border the town. BURGESS Gary Smith
