Like we said in our original post. Our main goal is to continue to grow as a part of the communities we serve. So we decided to share some upcoming community events that we are looking forward to attending. These events not only showcase the most beautiful place on earth, the eastern shore, and what it has to offer, but they all benefit their community in one way or another. We just wanted to make it a little easier for our communities to support each other and with that in mind here are some local events going on around you!
