Sidewalk Project Update

Sidewalk Update

The wall in the 800 block of Bladen Street has been taken down utilizing a very large construction crane which necessitated a detour .  The wall will be replaced in the near future using flaggers to direct traffic instead of the detour. We thank you for your patience as this project is completed and caution everyone to use extra care as you traverse Bladen Street while the construction continues.  We continue to thank you for your patience.

Update! Wreaths Across America December 16th

December 16, 2017 is fast approaching for the Wreaths Across America to HONOR OUR VETERANS that are buried in the Charlestown Cemetery.  Although the wreaths are paid for I would like to make the program more interesting by posting as many pictures of the veterans that can be found.  These will be on display at the luncheon held at the Charlestown Fire House.  Everyone is invited to the free lunch however; I need to have a count in order to prepare the soup and rolls.  So please RSVP.  Pictures can be left a the town hall for me.  RSVP to Jeannette Armour 410-392-9247 or email: jwa1940@hotmail.com.

Cecil County Wade In held in Charlestown June 17

This year’s Cecil County Wade-In was held in Charlestown!  We learned lots of way to make the Chesapeake Bay a healthier environment with things we can do in our own backyards.   Hosted by Charlestown  while Elk Neck State Park has some construction done, we got a lot of positive feedback from vendors, organizers and attendees.  There is some hope that we might alternate going forward with Elk Neck as hostees.  We took our stroll from Foot Log Beach and made 27″ depth of water clarity before our shoes disappeared!  The picture at left shows the wade-in from Foot Log Beach!

DOG LICENSES EXPIRE DECEMBER 31!
