Lisbon activities continue into the new year with notification [Lison/Woodbine]

The past few weeks have been busy to say the least! Since all are involved with family and holiday activities advertising of events for January and the new year have been put on the back burner.

Of special note for me once again this year was the winter concert at Gleneg High School led by Chris Winters, concert band director, Ross Rawlings, choir director and Kevin George, orchestra director. Folks who attended with me noted that if you closed your eyes to the teenagers and the accoutrements of a high school auditorium, you would feel that you were in a full-fledged concert hall being entertained by professional artists. The instrumentals were excellent and the voices transporting.

Of disturbing news to the horse world is the announcement of the cancellation of the Horse World Expo held each January at the state fair grounds in Timonium. This expo had become the centerpiece for winter equine activities, both educational and commercial, during the winter months.

But, as we know, the only thing that is certain is change and to replace this event, the Maryland Horse Industry Board announced the Equus Film Festival. The date continues to be Jan. 19-20. This festival is a replica of the international festival held in New York City. The two days consist of the showing of 18 equestrian-based films. On Friday, Jan. 19, from 4 to 6 p.m. is Hunt Night featuring the film “Goodnight Ladies.” On Saturday, Jan. 20, the theme is based on the movie “The Wild Ponies of Chincoteague.” This event runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Visitors will have the opportunity to interact with Maryland Horse Industry Board representatives as well as with staff who created and produced some of the films. The cost for either session is $20. Tickets can be purchased on the Maryland Horse Industry Board website.
