Baby, it’s (finally) cold outside! Winter seemed to take a long time to arrive in Frederick County this year. It seems colder temperatures are here to stay for a while. Most of us have had our warm hats, scarves, boots and gloves at the ready. But what about our pets? They can’t just don a muffler to protect themselves when the weather turns extreme. The veterinarians at Yellow Springs Vet Clinic are here to help, with tips on protecting dogs and cats from the wintertime chill, as well as ideas about pet weight management and parasite control. See the story on Page 17. For a lot of folks, wintertime means a fresh start with fitness. One of Frederick’s newest fitness facilities, Barre East, is ready and waiting for all fitness levels to give the barre in Everedy Square a try. Teachers there pride themselves on creating a “judgment-free zone” for women to exercise, shape and tone their way to better health. Find out more on Page 26. Of course, wintertime also shepherds in Girl Scout cookie selling season in the county. The cookie program doesn’t just provide us all with tasty little treats, it also teaches girls valuable lessons about goal-setting and decision-making, not to mention money management. Learn all about it, and score delicious cookie recipes on Page 14. There’s a little something for everyone in this issue of the Frederick County Guide, just as there’s always a little something for everyone all around the county. Enjoy!

GIRL SCOUT COOKIE BOOTHS COMING TO FREDERICK COUNTY Beginning this February, hungry cookie customers in Frederick County can look forward to the return of the iconic Girl Scout Cookie sale. Starting on Feb. 19, cookie booths will pop up at local supermarkets and businesses in the Greater Washington region. The Girl Scout Cookie program is the largest girl-led entrepreneurial business in the country, giving girls the opportunity to earn money to travel, go camping and take on projects to help their community. Girls can also choose organizations they want to support by selling cookies to donate to the Capital Area Food Bank, our military or local hometown heroes. “I love making people smile when they get their cookies,” said Sidney Tucci, a member of Girl Scout Brownie and Daisy Troop 81426 in Frederick. With their cookie earnings, Sidney and her troop potted f lowers and delivered them to a local nursing home last year. The cookie program isn’t just about earning money; Girl Scout cookie entrepreneurs also learn essential skills for leadership and for life. “One thing I love is seeing the girls’ confidence grow,” said Troop Leader Christie Tucci. “Thinking back to our first cookie booths, the girls were hesitant to talk with anyone … but today, they have developed such confidence though the cookie program and are proud to talk with others. They can be very persuasive saleswomen!”

14

FREDERICK COUNTY GUIDE | WINTER 2016

Cookie customers can find a local booth by typing in their ZIP code in the online cookie locator or downloading the cookie locator app at www.girlscouts.org. The iconic Girl Scout Cookie sale officially began in the Greater Washington region in December, with all proceeds supporting the good work of local Girl Scouts. Girl Scouts will sell to friends and families and door to door, through March 27. The following varieties will be available: Thin Mints, Samoas, Tagalongs, Trefoils, Do-Si-Dos, Savannah Smiles, Rah-Rah Raisins, and at select booths, gluten-free Toffee-tastics. Customers who want to support Girl Scouts, but don’t want the extra calories, can purchase cookies for Girl Scouts to donate as a Gift of Caring. Last year, 135,657 boxes of cookies were donated. Girl Scouts have selected the Capital Area Food Bank, the USO Washington and local heroes as the recipients of donated cookies. Girl Scout Cookies are $4 per box (Toffee-tastic cookies will cost $5 a box and are available in limited supply). All proceeds stay in the local community to support the Girl Scout operations: troop service projects, travel, activities, educational programs, volunteer training and camp maintenance. In the Greater Washington Region, Girl Scouts sold 4.2 million boxes of Girl Scout Cookies last year. Girl Scouts across the country will celebrate National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend Friday, Feb. 26 – Sunday, Feb. 28

5 SKILLS GIRLS LEARN: Much more than a way to raise money, the Cookie Program is a handson leadership and entrepreneurial program. Participating in the Cookie Program teaches Girl Scouts skills that will help them grow into leaders in their own lives, leaders in business and leaders in the world. Through the Cookie Program, girls learn: 1. Goal Setting: Girl Scouts set cookie sales goals individually and with her team, creates a plan to reach them, and develops cooperation and team-building skills all along the way. 2. Decision-Making: A Girl Scout helps decide how her team will spend their cookie money, furthering her critical thinking and problem-solving skills. 3. Money Management: Girl Scouts take cookie orders, handle customers’ money and gain valuable financial literacy skills. 4. People Skills Girl Scouts learn how to talk, listen & work with all kinds of people while selling cookies. 5. Business Ethics: Girl Scouts learn to be honest and responsible at every step of the cookie sale.

PE T S

VETS’ ADVICE:

BY KORRIN LUCAS, DVM, YELLOW SPRINGS VETERINARY CLINIC

WINTERIZING YOUR PET While many pets may enjoy frolicking in the snow, winter weather can also bring many challenges to keeping our furry friends healthy. Extra care is needed to prevent illness, maintain body weight and control parasites. Below are some helpful tips to make the next few months easier for both you and your pets.

KEEPING WARM Dogs and cats are susceptible to hypothermia and frostbite, just as humans are. A good rule of thumb is that if you are cold, your pet is, too. Some breeds are more susceptible to ill effects of chill than others. An Italian Greyhound, for instance, with a thin coat and little body fat, may need to be suited up with a “doggie parka” and booties to be comfortable. A Husky, on the other hand, is designed for cold weather and may overheat if wearing extra clothes. Proper shelter must be provided if your pet is going to be outside for any extended period of time. When in doubt, bring them inside! Frostbite most commonly affects the paws, ear tips, nose, and tail. The painful effects of this may not be noted until days after the initial injury.

WEIGHT MANAGEMENT Most of us are guilty of putting on a few extra pounds during the winter months, but this does not need to apply to our pets. Obesity is a huge problem in our pet population and can lead to diabetes, organ disease and orthopedic issues. With colder weather, exercise can be a challenge. Try taking advantage of the afternoon hours to get outside when it is warmer. Afterwards, be sure that care is taken to clean off the snow or salt that may accumulate and irritate the paws. If your pet is more sedentary during the winter, you may need to decrease the amount of food and/or treats you give. Try replacing commercial treats with healthier options such as raw carrots, green beans or apple slices. Most dogs like the crunch and these foods are much lower in calories than store-bought treats. Conversely, if your

pets are more active and spend a lot of time outside, you may need to increase their food intake to make up for the lost calories used to keep warm.

PARASITE CONTROL A common misconception is that cats and dogs do not need flea, tick and heartworm preventatives during the winter months. Surprisingly, fleas and ticks can actually be worse during the fall and winter. They spend all summer reproducing, so when fall comes, their numbers are at the highest. Then with the colder weather, they need to find a warm body to live on, turning your pet into their new home. Ticks can be found year round and can transmit illnesses such as Lyme disease, anaplasmosis and ehrlichiosis. Heartworm disease is transmitted a bit differently, through mosquito bites. Most people would assume that it’s OK to skip a few months of preventative when it is cold; however, you would be surprised at how quickly mosquitoes can appear when we have a mild day in the winter months. It only takes one bite to transmit heartworm disease, which can be fatal. Speak with your veterinarian about which products would be best to provide year-round coverage for your pet. Winter can be a fun time for our canine and feline friends as long as a few extra precautions are taken to keep them safe. Be sure to keep up with regular veterinary visits and monitor for any signs of illness. With a little extra care you and your pet can enjoy this time of year.

FREDERICK ’

LAUNCHED

AS DYNAMIC APPROACH TO

LONG-RANGE PLANNING Frederick County Executive Jan Gardner recently announced a dynamic approach to long-range planning that will engage citizens in every step of the process in updating and creating the county’s Comprehensive Plan. “I am pleased to kick off Livable Frederick, a unique approach to envision where Frederick County wants to go, what we want to be and what our citizens value in the future,” Gardner said. “The process will be vision-focused, not zoning-driven, like in years past. I have appointed a steering committee that will bring diverse perspectives, advice and ideas to the table during this two-year Comprehensive Plan process. I am grateful that Jim Racheff will serve as the chairman. This is a much more dynamic approach than ever before in the history of Frederick County. I invite everyone to join the conversation, get engaged and help shape a bright future for Frederick County.”

The process will be vision-focused, not zoning-driven, like in years past.

Photos by Livable Frederick

Livable Frederick will put in place a vision for a sustainable, high quality of life for the next 10 to 25 years. The plan will focus on vibrant, healthy communities, enhanced accessibility, sustainable business growth, economic resilience, equitable housing and a strong agricultural economy. Livable Frederick will assess community needs, examine multimodal transportation systems and more. Throughout the process, county government officials will actively seek engagement from the community through surveys, social media and other outreach methods. The final result will be Livable Frederick, a Comprehensive Plan document that reflects on the community’s vision, as well as a Comprehensive Plan map. The process is expected to take about two years from launch this past fall, until adoption. The Planning Commission, County Council and others will be involved at every step.

Members appointed to the Livable Frederick Steering Committee and the interests they represent include: • Mary Kate Battles | small business & young community leader • Dana French | organizational & community representative • Richard Grossnickle | agriculture • M.C. Keegan-Ayer | ex-officio officer from the County Council • Mark Lancaster | construction • Jay Mason | real estate and education • Scott Minton | housing • Shannon Moore | sustainability • Chairman Jim Racheff | business • Karen Tome | mayor of the City of Brunswick, municipal representative • Peter Vorac | Jefferson-Broad Run community • Barry Weller | real estate • Bob White | Planning Commission

FITNESS INSTRUCTORS CREATE

‘JUDGMENT-FREE ZONE’ 26

FREDERICK COUNTY GUIDE | WINTER 2016


BUSI N E S S

At Barre East Fitness Studio in Downtown

Frederick, owners & instructors pride themselves in creating a space where women of all ages & all fitness levels can go to work out in a positive, fun & j u d g m e n t - f r e e e n v i r o n m e n t. Here, women are encouraged to work on transforming their bodies through a fusion of ballet, Pilates, strength training, cardio and core exercises designed to sculpt the body, burn fat and build endurance. The studio opened in mid-2015, and largely received praise and support from the community. But a few months ago, after the studio’s managers were featured in a photograph and article in the local newspaper, they received an unexpected piece of mail that intended to break them down. It did not succeed. Instead, the studio managers’ response to the body shaming letter ended up lifting up the studio owners and managers, as well as the women who exercise there. In October, the studio received a clipping of the newspaper article, with comments scrawled on it. The writer was intent on shaming the two manager featured in the article, Taryn Sisco and Megan Ellis. She wrote things such as “You are fat,” and “You are overweight” on the article and said that “pictures/articles like this give others a license to be overweight or obese.”

Photos courtesy of Barre East Fitness Studio

Ellis and Sisco could have chosen to simply ignore the note. Or they could have responded negatively to the commenter. But instead, they chose to use it as a lesson for women throughout Frederick County. They posted a response on the Barre East blog, stating that “the women in our classes come to our studio because they feel comfortable in a judgment-free zone. Barre East is a place where we encourage them to ‘hold it for just 8 more counts’ and we applaud them for finding their inner strength while making them feel like they are a part of something special. We truly love our clients, we celebrate their successes, both in studio and out, and we care about their experience every time they walk through our door. We don’t have to look like ‘Gym Barbie’ to do that… Women should lift each other up, not tear each other down. So nice try lady...but mission not accomplished. Barre East welcomes all ages, all levels and ALL BODYTYPES. Always.” As a result, the Frederick studio received regional and national media attention. Their story was featured online in People magazine, SELF magazine and Time magazine. They even, eventually, received an apology from the woman who initially insulted them. Sisco and Ellis have forgiven the writer and are looking at the experience as a positive, since it opened up an important conversation about body shaming. We asked Sisco to tell us how life has changed for her and Barre East since last fall.

Q:

What was your first reaction after receiving the negative letter in the mail; Why did you decide to respond in the way you did? At first we were completely caught off guard. We actually thought it was just someone being nice and sending us the clipping in the mail. We both couldn’t believe the things we were seeing. While it was an option to just curl up in the corner and cry, we decided we needed to put it out there because it wasn’t OK. Body shaming is not OK and we had to stand up for ourselves.

Q:

After you posted the blog about the letter and your response to it, what was the response like? We really just put the blog out there to show our clients that no matter what, we were always going to be a judgment-free zone for them and we always want them to feel comfortable working out with us. We had no idea it would snowball into the media frenzy it became. I think it struck a chord with so many people because we’ve all felt that way at one point in our lives, but to actually see those words written across our own bodies felt incredibly hateful. Our friends, our family, our clients and people from all over came out in droves to show their support. We were so amazed at the positive response to our message and so thankful to be able to share it with everyone.

Q:

How has your business changed since the media attention? We have several new clients that have called our studio and come into class because they felt like they wanted to support us. A lot of women said they did not want to venture out to a public workout facility until they read our story, realizing that we are just regular women who are passionate about health and fitness made them want to come check us out.

Q:

What has this situation taught you about running a small business? We always knew that our community rocked, but the amount of support and positivity that has come out of this negative experience has completely overwhelmed us. We receive so many letters, messages and cards in the mail that it’s been truly unbelievable. It looks like women really do want to build women up and not tear them down.

Q:

What are your goals and vision for the future of Barre East in Frederick? We have established an inspiration wall in our studio where our clients and instructors can write messages of strength and hope to each other. We are also developing workshops working with local businesses to provide a continued opportunity for growth and development for women in this area.

LIBRARIES OFFER KEY TO LEARNING

FOR KIDS & ADULTS BY DONNA BANNWOLF, CORPORATE & COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS MANAGER, FREDERICK COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARIES Libraries and education have long been close partners in the lifelong evolution of learning, and nowhere is that more evident than in our very own Frederick County Public Libraries. FCPL’s eight branches and two bookmobiles serve the community through programming, meeting rooms, technology resources and of course, books, both print and electronic. Each branch presents hundreds of programs for babies, students and adults, eager to continue their learning adventure. FCPL is a starting point and an important rite of passage for children who, when they receive their first library card — the key to the kingdom of learning, if you will — are free to explore books, e-Content and fun, educational programs in the safety of the library environment. Studies show that a significant amount of brain growth and language development occurs during baby’s first two years, so FCPL offers interactive learning experiences beginning with newborns. It’s never too early to exercise the brain, learn social skills and get prepared for that very important first day of school. “Our storytimes focus on early literacy skills, but we also trained with Frederick County Public Schools’ early childhood

FREDERICK COUNTY GUIDE | WINTER 2016

educators to target additional school readiness skills, such as matching patterns which introduce math skills, learning to take turns and helping children develop their social and emotional foundations, so critical to success in school,” explains FCPL Youth Services Coordinator Janet Vogel. “The most heartwarming experience I have had was with a young family who could not afford to send their son to preschool. After attending evening storytimes for a year, the mother pulled me aside to explain how storytimes had helped prepare her son for kindergarten, through interaction with his peers and learning to follow directions from an adult other than his parents, for which she was very grateful,” Vogel said. Elementary school and teenage students have their own special opportunity for experiential learning in any of FCPL’s four STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Labs at C. Burr Artz, Urbana, Thurmont and Brunswick ( fcpl. org/STEMlab). All branches offer STEM programs, which are popular because blended hands-on learning reinforces skills learned in the classroom through creative problem solving, an important skill for later on, in the workplace.

STEM programs focus on logical reasoning, critical thinking and investigative techniques. FCPL partners with community professionals, such as scientists from the Fort Detrick Alliance, to lead interactive learning programs. Children can create objects with 3D printers, make their own working robots and work on iPads with pre-loaded educational and safe apps. “Frederick has the second highest number of biotech companies in Maryland, and they are always looking for employees. Our STEM opportunities support our students who are preparing for tomorrow’s workforce,” said FCPL Director Darrell Batson. “Libraries aren’t just about books and reading anymore. We are about learning, exploring and creating, too. We offer a variety of programs and resources for every child and adult’s interest from art to engineering. FCPL has the support of the entire community and will continue to place an emphasis on partnerships, early literacy and programs that give Frederick’s residents the ideal place to learn, gather, share ideas and advance their technology skills,” Batson said. All you have to do is walk through the door or visit online at fcpl.org.

The field of study that looks at these changes is known as genetics and it can sometimes be a little confusing.

A RESOLUTION TO SMILE ABOUT BY DR. ALLISON GREEN, MT AIRY CHILDREN’S DENTAL ASSOCIATES

If you are anything like me, all of the resolutions you made for the year 2015 have long been forgotten, as our busy lives took precedence over eating well and exercising more. As we celebrate this new year, I propose we take a different approach. Instead of resolutions for us, let’s focus on our children and instilling healthy habits for them. As parents, we want the best for our children. We want them to grow up happy and healthy, and dental care plays an important role in all of that. There are so many ways we can instill good oral health with our children. First figure out the approach that will work best for your family: starting small and choosing one or two areas to improve, or diving right in making your children’s dental health a main priority for 2016. As a pediatric dentist and a parent, I’d like to offer the following tips for encouraging your children on the path to better dental health:

38

FREDERICK COUNTY GUIDE | WINTER 2016


HE ALT H

2 MINUTES, 2 TIMES A DAY The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that you brush your children’s teeth for two minutes in the morning after breakfast and two minutes just before bed. All children should brush their teeth with f luoride toothpaste, a smear for children younger than 2, and a pea sized amount for those who are 2 and older. Parents should assist with brushing until around age 9 or 10.

FLOSS DAILY Begin to f loss as soon as your child’s teeth touch each other, or when all of the baby teeth come in.

+ Dr. Allison Green, Pediatric Dentist, Diplomate, American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, is a member of the team at Mt. Airy Children’s Dental Associates, 602 Center St, Mt. Airy. Find out more about the practice online at mtairysmiles.com or call 301-829-6588.

HEALTHY DIET/LIMIT SUGAR Limit juices, sodas and energy drinks. Encourage children to drink mostly water and plain white milk. Limit snacking and eat a well-rounded diet that includes plenty of whole grains, vegetables, fruits and lean meats. Good snacks include dairy, peanut butter and fruit. Poor snacks for dental health include fruit snacks, candy and raisins.

ESTABLISH A DENTAL HOME An infant oral health exam should be done before a child’s first birthday. This first dental exam establishes a relationship with a dentist to guide you in the proper care for each individual child and be a friendly face in case of a dental emergency. The earlier the first dental visit, the better the chance of preventing dental disease and helping your child build a cavity-free smile.

REGULAR DENTAL CHECKUPS Everyone should have regular dental checkups every six months. Regular dental examinations can help catch pathology early, making treatment easier, less invasive and less costly. Children with healthy mouths can chew more easily and gain more nutrients from the foods they eat. They learn to speak more quickly and clearly. They have a better chance of better general health, because disease in the mouth can endanger the rest of the body.

Let’s all focus on the oral health of our children to start the year off right.

Let’s all focus on the oral health of our children to start the year off right. And just maybe some of the healthy resolutions will trickle our way also.

HOW TO BE PREPARED FOR

WINTER EMERGENCIES BY THE FREDERICK COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF AGING

It is important that senior citizens in particular should be prepared in the event that they are homebound by snowstorms, extreme cold temperatures, power outages or other emergencies. The following is a list of items that the Frederick County Department of Aging recommends seniors should keep in a plastic bin with a tight fitting lid, a suitcase or other secure container. Store the container in an easy to access location, such as a hall closet or kitchen cabinet. 1. A working can opener (should be battery- or handoperated in case the power goes out). 2. A working portable radio with fresh batteries (& a package of spares) tuned to a local radio station for information. 3. A working flashlight and extra batteries. It’s always a good idea to have a flashlight on each level of your home or in each room you use frequently.

During severe weather conditions, you should keep a supply of food on hand for emergencies. The department recommends the following easy-to-open and prepare foods that can be eaten without cooking if the power is off. Many of these items come with pull-off tops and as individual servings. While somewhat more expensive, they provide variety, convenience, and are easy to use. • Cans, bottles or boxes of 100% juice • Canned or instant soups, stews, and casseroles • Canned meat & fish (tuna, ham, chicken) • Canned, powdered or shelf stable cartons of milk • Canned fruits & vegetables

4. An extra set of clothes. A comfortable, warm shirt and pants or a sweat suit, a pair of socks, and a sweater or fleece jacket will help keep you warm. Wearing layers of clothing helps retain body heat. Don’t forget a knit hat and gloves or mittens to keep your head and hands warm, too.

• Ready-to-serve puddings

5. A warm blanket.

• Peanut butter & jam or jelly

6. A list of phone numbers for family members, doctor, pharmacy, power company, heating supplier, apartment manager or landlord, if appropriate, and any other important numbers you may need quickly.

• Crackers, rice ca kes or bread sticks

7. A charged mobile phone to make an emergency call (911). This phone does not need to have service to be used for emergency calls. You may receive a free phone from the Department of Aging. Call 301-600-1605 for more information.

• Bottled water (One gallon per person per day is recommended)

If you need assistance with obtaining food, home heating or cooling, or other services, contact the Department of Aging.

• Instant or ready-to-eat cereals • Dried fruits such as raisins, prunes, apricots, apples

• Granola bars or other snack bars • Instant coffee, tea, hot chocolate or other beverage mixes

• A three- to seven-day supply of medications and other health supplies • If you have a pet, keep a one-week supply of food, water and any pet medications on hand as well.

RIDESHARING

HAS LONG, STORIED HISTORY

BY ADRIENNE MORETZ, COMMUNITY RELATIONS MANAGER, TRANSIT SERVICES OF FREDERICK COUNTY When you think of the term, “ridesharing,” you probably imagine the obvious: sharing a ride to conserve time and/or resources, mostly for travel to work. But have you considered how ridesharing came about? In 2011, two UC Berkeley researchers wrote a paper detailing the history of ridesharing, “Ridesharing in North America: Past, Present & Future.” The work breaks ridesharing into five phases: 1942 – 1945 1970s 1980'S – 1997 1999 – 2004 2004 – PRESENT

THE JOURNEY TO BETTER TRANSPORTATION The ultimate goal of Frederick County TransIT is to create a convenient, safe and easy-to-use system for our passengers. The idea of having a service that is available to all residents is especially relevant during the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The act, written into law on July 26, 1990, celebrates “removing barriers and empowering people” and affects more than 50 million people in the US. Since its inception, the percentage of buses that are accessible to people with disabilities increased from 51 percent to 99.8 percent. TransIT provides lowering features on Connector buses, wheelchair lifts and trained staff to assist passengers. The TransIT-plus program provides transportation for seniors and people with disabilities in Frederick County.

Ridesharing began as a way to conserve resources for the war effort during World War II. Many times bulletins at work would arrange carpools and propaganda was widespread. Posters stating “When You Ride Alone, You Ride With Hitler,” were frequently displayed. In the 1970s, the effort was concentrated on conserving fuel as a response to energy crises. HOV (high-occupancy vehicle) lanes and vanpooling became popular during this time. Then, in the late 1990s, ridesharing became more focused on congestion mitigation. Online ridematching services were introduced in this phase, as was traveler information services, such as “511.” Currently, ridematching focuses on climate change and reducing the dependence on foreign oil. Real-time ridematching services are now gaining traction, as well as partnerships with large employers. Ridesharing now is easy. Register for free with www. commuterconnections.org to be matched with those living and working near you. There are numerous incentives, including financial, for ridesharing. Plus, your employer may offer pretax deductions (ask your HR representative).

In addition to TransIT’s ADA compliant services, it is launching the Taxi Access Program, providing TransIT-plus customers with an additional transportation option. Creating better service isn’t easy, but it is TransIt’s duty is to provide a transportation system that is safe, reliable and convenient for all who choose to use it. This individualized approach should remain consistent across all modes of transportation: availability for all. Alternative transportation, in any form, provides access to vital medical appointments, grocery trips, jobs and much more.

DISTILLERIES DE BU T I N F R E DE R IC K

PROHIBITION IS FINALLY OVER IN FREDERICK! Last winter, Frederick lawmakers amended city code to allow for small craft distillery operations to open in the downtown area. By mid-2015, two separate groups had announced plans to open new distillery operations in Downtown Frederick. McClintock Distilling plans to offer certified organic gins, whiskeys and small batch specialty liquors as a sustainable and locally sourced business with a focus on product quality, environmental impact and community betterment. Tenth Ward Distilling Company will focus its products mainly on whiskey, but will also be producing some brandies and other barrel-aged spirits. The owners aim to be progressive and a little offbeat by experimenting with unconventional ingredients, recipes and aging techniques, they said. “Our area is already known for its craft breweries and wineries. The growing craft distillery industry is a perfect fit for Freder-

ick,” said Richard Griffin, director of economic development for The City of Frederick. The owners of McClintock Distilling has begun renovations of the historic building at 35 S. Carroll St., in July and plan to open in early 2016. Tours and tastings will be available to the public and the venue will operate as an event space for the community as well. “We are so excited to … begin the time-honored tradition of distilling spirits. Our mission from the start has been to bring innovation to the industry and to invest in the community I grew up in. We are very thankful to the City of Frederick for being so supportive of our efforts to bring distilling back to Western Maryland,” said McClintock Distilling owner Tyler Hegamyer. The distillers will launch with a craft gin using Appalachianinspired botanicals as well as a sustainably sourced white whiskey. McClintock will also produce a bourbon and Irishstyle whiskey that will be barrel-aged on site and will be avail-

The new distillery will feature an expansive tasting room and production area. The 5,000 square-foot building will also be available for booking events and receptions. Tenth Ward is on schedule to open in the spring of 2016 at 508 E. Church St. In the late 19th century the area was known as Frederick’s Tenth Ward and served as the inspiration for the company’s name. In this part of the industrial area of Frederick, there’s a strong tradition of hard work and grit that the owners hope to carry through their products and the distillery as they begin construction on the space. Tenth Ward’s founders have started Frederick’s distillery network group, are members of the Maryland Distillers Guild and are excited to be one of Frederick city’s first distilleries in decades. “A vibrant craft distilling industry brings skilled jobs, visitors

and an enhanced focus on locally produced products,” said Kevin Atticks, executive director of the Maryland Distillers Guild. Tenth Ward’s equipment is being built by Anthony Zaca of Washington state. The two custom-made stills will forge unique small batch spirits, including some limited-edition products. The distillery will feature a tasting room and tours and special events will be available for adventurous tasters. McClintock Distilling and Tenth Ward Distilling will join other Maryland distilleries including Lyon Distilling, Blackwater Distilling and the Baltimore Distilling Company, as some of the first distilleries in the state since prohibition ended.

THREE DECADES OF BRINGING

ART TO THE COMMUNITY BY DUANE DOXZEN, DIRECTOR OF DEVELOPMENT & COMMUNICATIONS, DELAPLAINE VISUAL ARTS EDUCATION CENTER

FREDERICK COUNTY GUIDE | WINTER 2016


A RT S & LE I S UR E

Turn back the clock to 1986. Carroll Creek still meanders through Downtown Frederick, silently recalling its cataclysmic swelling just 10 years before, and the Carroll Creek flood control project and park are still on the drawing board. A number of downtown shops now stand silent as longtime retailers, some multi-generational, retire and others struggle to compete with two bustling malls on the outskirts of town. Frederick County’s arts scene is small, but getting ready to burst forth.

“The Delaplaine’s exhibits communicate a wide range of artistic expression including sculptural installations, contemporary realism, and solo exhibits by artists from around the country,” explains Diane Sibbison, who has been the Delaplaine’s Exhibition Manager for more than a decade. “The gallery space here is large enough to showcase group shows presenting national and international artists and arts organizations. Truly, there’s something for everyone on our schedule.”

It was into this environment that The Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center was born. The nonprofit arts center was established in the 100-year-old historic Mountain City Mill building along Carroll Creek Park, at the very nexus of the city’s renaissance, merging history, innovative green spaces, renewed economic growth and a thriving arts community.

Three satellite galleries are located at the Brunswick, Thurmont,and Urbana public libraries, expanding the arts center’s reach beyond its own four walls into other areas of the county.

Since its founding nearly 30 years ago, the Delaplaine has provided educational opportunities and experiences in the visual arts to the Frederick region through classes, exhibits and programs. A cornerstone of the region’s vibrant arts community, the Delaplaine welcomes more than 80,000 visitors per year from the county and beyond. An on-site rental hall and gallery shop invite event-goers and shoppers from throughout the area.

Photos courtesy of the Delaplaine Visual Art Education Center

The Delaplaine is an ideal place for both the art lover and the “art curious.” More than 270 classes and workshops are offered each year. Among its instructors are some of the most respected artists in the region. Classes for all ages and skill levels include a variety of media including ceramics, drawing, painting, photography, wood-working and more. The Delaplaine recently completed extensive renovations to its jewelry studio, expanding the space to more than twice its original size, providing dedicated workspaces for various machine and tools, and the addition of professional jeweler’s benches. “They are my favorite feature of the new jewelry studio,” said Gina Copanzzi, a metalsmith artist and jewelry instructor at the Delaplaine. “Both the novice and the advanced student can learn jewelry-making in a professional studio setting.” Exhibits change frequently in the Delaplaine’s seven on-site galleries, and a reception on the first Saturday of each month invites people to come and meet the artists. The galleries are open every day and admission is always free.

Making the visual arts accessible to everyone is one of the Delaplaine’s fundamental goals. The Community Outreach Initiative provides free, hands-on art experiences to economically disadvantaged preschool-aged children, senior citizens, developmentally challenged adults, and other atrisk and underserved audiences. Community partners include organizations such as Head Start, Boys and Girls Club of Frederick County, the Alzheimer’s Association, Arc of Frederick County, Frederick County Department of Aging, and local public and private schools. “Our community outreach programs are supported by local businesses and residents who are dedicated to the arts and understand that access to them raises everyone’s quality of life,” said Catherine Moreland, Delaplaine CEO. “Outreach is not just something we do — it’s a vital part of what we are. “We’ve come a long way from a small grassroots organization to becoming a vital part of Frederick County’s blossoming arts scene and an engine for economic growth,” Moreland added. “But one thing that’s never changed is the commitment of our members, donors, students and visitors to the Delaplaine and the arts.” Celebrating its milestone birthday in April 2016, the Delaplaine is busy preparing for its next 30 years of local art, and you are cordially invited along!

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. MAYOR

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.

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

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
