Editor:

As Journey Stories comes to a close, I would like to thank the Harford County community for its support and participation as we explored our heritage and enjoyed the Smithsonian Exhibit at the Abingdon Library.

There was something for everyone including visits with award-winning authors and local celebrities, a reception featuring an Apollo 15 Astronaut, and the first Romancing the Chrome Car Show. All of this was made possible by the support provided by our partners, generous sponsors, dedicated volunteers and staff. A special thanks to County Executive, David Craig, for supporting the vision of a cultural marathon and to the Department of Community Services for being instrumental in making this a success.
