North Market Community Day

This is of special interest to me since I now live North of Fourth.

“LIFE & Discovery in conjunction with the Minority Outreach & Technical Assistance program, The Housing Authority of the City of Frederick , Frederick Memorial Hospital and Habitat for Humanity have teamed up to bring the public the first annual North Market Street Community Day.

The event is scheduled to take place Saturday, August 6th at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, located at 622 North Market Street, from 11:00am – 4:00pm.

Come celebrate “North of Fourth” with food, fun, entertainment and special give-aways. Join us!”

I received one of the flyers in my door last week with more information about the “food, fun, entertainment and special give-aways”.  This event will be held at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore and will have a Back Pack giveaway, face painting, Zumba demonstrations, health screenings, Frederick Keys ticket giveaway and food by Caribbean Soul and Moxie Bakery.  Key 103 will be broadcasting live.

Free Coffee for Dads

Just like they did for Moms on Mother’s Day, Baltimore Coffee and Tea is giving away free coffee for Dads on Father’s Day.  I got this email yesterday:

Since we did it for Moms, we gotta do it for Dads now too!   Baltimore Coffee & Tea is offering FREE coffee for all dads on Father’s day at all three of our stores – Timonium, Frederick and Annapolis.   Dads are welcome to have a medium drink of their choice on Sunday. Visit or find us on Twitter or Facebook for more details.  By the looks of the forecast, it’s going to be more of an iced coffee or tea day for dad, with temperatures in the 90’s!

Free Coffee for Moms

I got this email today from Matt of Frederick’s  Baltimore Coffee and Tea:

I wanted to give you a heads up that Baltimore Coffee & Tea in Frederick is offering FREE coffee for all moms on Mother’s day.   Moms are welcome to have any medium sized drink of choice on Sunday at our Frederick location – 5209 Presidents Court.  The store is open Sunday from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m.    Visit or find us on Twitter or Facebook for more details.
