Some fun for the weekend

Two fun things going on this weekend:

11 Years

I started Frederick Maryland Online 11 years ago today.

Crazy!

I don’t have as much time to commit to it these days (2 kids, busy job, and life in general), but it’s still a labor of love for the community I call home.

I just wanted to mark this milestone and thank those that have helped me keep the site going over the years either by reading, writing comments, or contributing their own articles.

You all (and Frederick) rock!
