(ST. MICHAELS, MD – June 7, 2021) Fremont Street near the intersection of Railroad Avenue in St. Michaels will be the backdrop for this Saturday’s Community Block Party hosted by the St. Michaels Community Center. The party includes dancing and music with a DJ, along with family activities, food and drinks, and the opportunity for individuals ages 12 and older to receive a COVID-19 vaccination from the Talbot County Health Department.
The free event takes place on Saturday, June 12 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at SMCC, with hamburgers, hot dogs, BBQ chicken, drinks and sides on the menu, along with family activities including jump rope, yard games, and more.
Talbot County Health Department will have medical staff at the event to provide Pfizer COVID-19 vaccinations to children ages 12 and above, and Johnson & Johnson vaccinations to those ages 18 and older. The first 22 people to receive a vaccine will be provided with a free trip to Six Flags in Landover, Md.
“We’re very excited to return to the core of everything we do,” said interim Executive Director Trish Payne. “We’re at our best when we are connecting community in meaningful ways, and the return of our annual block party is a great way to expand beyond our food distribution services.”
SMCC pivoted from its normal programs during the COVID-19 pandemic and continues to provide tens of thousands of bags of groceries and takeout and delivery meals to those in need as the County-designated Bay Hundred food distribution hub.
The St. Michaels Community Center provides quality activities and services contributing to the physical, emotional, and social well-being of the community. SMCC is dedicated to filling the unmet needs of the Bay Hundred and St. Michaels communities by providing supervised programs for the enrichment of children and teens; activities and services for adults and senior citizens; and affordable recreational, social, and educational activities to the entire community.
Donations to SMCC and proceeds from its Treasure Cove Thrift Shop, located on Railroad Ave. in St. Michaels, help the nonprofit provide year-round programs, services, and community events for people from throughout the Bay Hundred area. More information is at stmichaelscc.org.
