Havre de Grace: Children’s Art Festival at Tydings Park set for Saturday

It's a big fish, dear readers. Do venture to Concord Point Park to view the newest installation and sculpture "Big Fish, School of Fish" revealed recently at the Waterfront Festival, by Thomas Sterner. You will be amazed and impressed, as I was upon viewing it. Great view of the Susquehanna River too at that point.

It's back to school! September is National School Success month, National Open House month and Library Card Sign Up month. Welcome back to the school year students, teachers, and support staff. Have a great school year.
