Big Brown, the over-sized golden retriever statue that greets passers by along Triadelphia Road, has always been a smile-inducing fixture for folks driving by owner Donnie Brown’s place. Lately, as a nod to the times we live in, Donnie has given Big Brown a face mask. We appreciate you, Donnie Brown.
There is a new location for West Friendship Volunteer Fire Department’s popular Food Truck Tuesday events. The yummy food truck fare will be set up at the Howard County Living Farm Heritage Museum, at 12985 Frederick Road in West Friendship across from the fairgrounds, from 4 to 8 p.m. each Tuesday. Check the Food Truck Tuesdays Facebook page for the latest updates as to which trucks will be there.

When not delivering meals and supplies to home-bound folks, Hill can be found kayaking on the nearby reservoir.

She was a choir director, member of the Alleluia chorale and soprano soloist there. Condolences to the family of this fine and revered lady.
