Once again our tiny little village on the Eastern Shore of Maryland has a busy weekend. Saturday, October 24th from 7 – 11 AM  in the Community Hall, The Auxiliary of the Fire Dept will be hosting breakfast. Cream Chipped Beef will be the highlite of that day.

All proceeds go to the Allen Fire Company #15 Auxiliary. Monies raised go towards equipment purchases for the Fire Company and Emergency Medical Service in town.

If your around, come on down, a finer breakfast just won’t be found.

Sunday evening a play, ” Allen in the Civil War” will be featured in the church.

Time: 7:00 PM

Tickets: $15.00

All proceeds go to the Allen Historical Society.

Delaware and Maryland were known as border states. Maryland’s involvement during the war is little known to many folks today. Our schools have cut out so much from their curriculum’s. I’ve spoken to folks who couldn’t tell you where various states are on a map, how they were settled and by whom. Where are the rivers, mountain ranges and capitols, nope, no clue.  I’ve had people tell me New England is a state, Africa is a country and Orlando is the Capitol of Florida, I thought it was Disneyland.

Daniel C. Edelson, Vice President for Education, National Geographic Society has a great article, Geographic Literacy in U.S. by 2025.   If at all interested in where we’ll be in ten years give it a peak. Should you wish to learn about Allen in Civil War times, come by the church on Sunday evening at 7:00 PM.

Where will The Rooster be?

The Rooster will be in our nations Capitol this weekend cheering on 3 wonderful women in the Marine Corps. Marathon. Yes I’ll miss breakfast and the play but sometimes things just happen. The 3 ladies are my wife, Mary Agnes and our good friend Rose Jarvis, running the 10K. My daughter Kathryn will be running the full 26.2 miles. The ladies are part of a team that raises funds for Fisher House. My wife and daughter have been doing this for a number of years and they are proud to have Rose jumping on board also. You Go Girls!

The Rooster is ground support for this operation and shall have a cold beer waiting for the ladies at the finish line.
