Celebrate the season at Sykesville Fall Festival [Marriottsville/Sykesville/Woodstock]

The Sykesville Fall Festival is coming up, but first let me introduce myself.

My name is Kerry Plummer and I am the new columnist for the Marriottsville/Sykesville/Woodstock communities. I am excited to embark on this adventure and bring you the news from your neighborhoods.

I grew up in Howard County and graduated from Glenelg High School a few years ago. I went on to attend Catonsville Community College, where I received my associates degree, and then my bachelor's degree in business marketing from Salisbury State University.

A few years ago, I returned to college once more to get my master's degree in education. My husband, Gary, and I decided to raise our children in Howard County because of the stellar school system. Our daughter, Megan, is a sophomore at Marriotts Ridge High School and our son, Nick, attends Burleigh Manor Middle School.

I want to thank my predecessor, Cassie Felch, for representing the Marriottsville/Sykesville/Woodstock communities for the past six years. Thank you for this opportunity and I look forward to following in your footsteps!

The Sykesville Fall Festival is just around the corner. The festivities will be held on Main Street, Saturday, Oct. 11, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. There will be performances from a variety of dance troupes as well as martial arts demonstrations throughout the day.

The New Southern Cow Tippers will be performing from noon until 4 p.m. at the gazebo. Parking will be available at South Branch Park or attendees can catch a ride on the free shuttle from Freedom Park. Rain date will be Saturday, Oct. 18.

Also on Saturday, Oct. 11, at 10 a.m., the Howard County Conservancy will be holding an informative session on bats — Beneficial Bats in Your Belfry: Dispelling Myths and Revealing Truths.
