It’s officially fall, and that means corn maze season!
For its third annual corn maze fundraiser, Local Homestead Products has teamed up with The Center for Breast Health at Carroll Hospital.
Admission is $7 per person (children younger than 3 are free) for the corn maze, which will be open the four weekends in October. One dollar from every corn maze admission will benefit The Center for Breast Health.
The corn maze itself is themed around breast cancer awareness, with “Pink Fling” spelled out in cursive lettering.
Trevor Hoff, owner of Local Homestead Products, said, “For 2019, we have partnered with the Carroll Hospital center, The Center for Breast Health due to the fact that some of our customers are involved with this group and have expressed how this organization has changed their lives. The Center for Breast Health is a group of incredible strength and determination. We are proud to stand behind a group that will stand behind each other!”
The maze can take up to two hours to complete. Closed-toe shoes are strongly recommended. Children younger than 10 must be accompanied by an adult. No dogs are allowed in the corn maze except for service dogs clearly marked as such.
The corn maze is open weather permitting, so call 410-635-2011 for field conditions before you head out. Local Homestead Products is at 2425 Marston Road in New Windsor.
There is something different happening each weekend. Full details are available at www.lhp.farm.

Free music jam
A free music jam session will be held Sunday, Oct. 13, at the Pipe Creek Friends Meetinghouse, at 455 Quaker Hill Road in Union Bridge, from 1 to 3 p.m.
The jam, organized after a suggestion was made by several members of Pipe Creek Friends Meetinghouse, is held indoors in the meeting room.
Frank Reitemeyer, organizer of the event said, “It is pretty informal. The idea is for people who like to play or sing to have a place where they are comfortable. It is not a performance. Someone picks a song and we all join in.”
This is a community participation event, so bring your instruments and your voices and join in to play some bluegrass, gospel, and old-time country music. If you don’t play an instrument or don’t want to play in front of an audience, just come by to listen.
