Letter: Thanks to those who made Havre de Grace Food Truck Sundays possible | READER COMMENTARY

With most events and festivals canceled this year due to COVID-19, the Havre de Grace Ambulance Corps set out to do something that would be safe and open to everyone this summer.

On July 12, we opened our parking lot, put out social distancing signs and supplied masks as we started Food Truck Sundays. We welcomed families and their pets to come join us every Sunday through Aug. 30 and enjoy safe fellowship and some great food in our large open pavilion. Our wonderful community did not disappoint us.


The weather cooperated for most Sundays. Folks came from as far away as Pennsylvania and Virginia to enjoy some of the most mouthwatering food truck fare in the area.

We would like to thank some special people and businesses that helped make our first Food Truck Sundays a big success:

  • Mayor Bill Martin and the City Council of Havre de Grace
  • Chief Teresa Walter and the Havre de Grace Police Dept.
  • Justin Burrage and his employees at Vulcan Quarry
  • Barbra Pollitt and staff at Pollitt Signs
  • Paula Casagrande and staff at Big House Signs
  • Justin and Steve at WHGM Radio
  • WXCY Radio
  • Shelby Haley and staff at Furnace Bay Golf Course in Perryville
  • Nicole Youse and the MD Mobile Food Vending Association
  • All of the food trucks that came out and supported us

Most of all, we would like to thank all of you that took the time out of your busy Sunday schedule and stopped by and supported us. We truly thank you and hope to be back next year, bigger and better. Please follow our Facebook page, Havre de Grace Ambulance Corps Food Truck Sundays, where new dates for next year will be announced as well as the Food Truck line up for the upcoming Sunday.
