service activities often help our neighbor non-profits or the Town of St. MIchaels and instill a sense of
accomplishment and pride. Young participants earn eligibility to join SMCC and (sometimes
representatives of S.M.Y.L.E). on a weekend camp trip to the Wilderness Presidential Resort in
Spotsyvania (wpresort.com). Call Trish at 410-745-6073 to learn how to join us!

In an effort to preserve cultural heritage and protect our forebearer's

crafts. Family participation is strongly encouraged.
Our first class in this series will be the
SMCC DECOY CARVERS
taught by Professional Carver, Larry Parker of St. Michaels.
This class is open to anyone 18 and older who has an interest in
learning or improving their decoy carving skills.
The group will meet on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 9 - Noon
at the St. Michaels Community Center beginning July 3, 2014 and
will continue weekly. The cost of $20 per project will include wood,
professional instruction, use of carving tools, paints, brushes and mounts.
Please call 410-745-6073 for more information or to reserve your spot.
Drop ins are welcome anytime! Enjoy as much or as little as you want.
If you have a skill or talent you'd like to pass on to future generations, we'd
welcome the opportunity to help you share it!
