We are very excited to announce that Betsy McMillion of the Patapsco Heritage Greenway will be speaking about the history of villages and mills along the Patapsco. We hope you can attend. We are in partnership with the Greenway, and have many interests in common, so we hope you will support both organizations by attending this very interesting presentation.

The cost is free, BUT we will be selling tickets for our first fundraiser of the year, an Elkridge Furnace Inn night. We were extremely fortunate in booking gifted Maryland author and poet, Frank Crowson, to speak about growing up in Lower Elkridge, which is an important topic which we have not had the opportunity to explore thus far. Raised in Lower Elkridge, Mr. Crowson went to Elkridge High School with a gift for chemistry. A veteran of both World War II and the Korean War, he served for twenty-five years in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. As a civilian, Mr. Crowson worked as a professional nuclear engineer. He designed and constructed a number of the nation’s nuclear reactors and fossil fuel stations. With two other engineers, he established CDP Product Development Corp. and has been issued four U.S. patents. His first book, “Bearing False Witness” was published in 1997. This may be a once in a lifetime opportunity, as Mr. Crowson is selling his house and moving to Arizona this summer.
