The St. Michaels Community Center’s programs have returned, which kick off with its free, waterfront Summer Concert Series taking place on Thursdays from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. at Muskrat Park in St. Michaels.
Muskrat Park features an expansive lawn and covered gazebo for performers, and is situated between Mulberry and Willow Streets overlooking St. Michaels Harbor and the Miles River.
The free concert series continues through Sept 9 and is made possible through the generous sponsorship of local businesses acknowledged at each concert. Guests are encouraged to bring a blanket or your own seating, along with friends, family, neighbors, your leashed dog, or just yourself to enjoy the concerts, with alcohol prohibited.
Treats including popcorn, water, and snow cones will be available for cash sale at the concerts, with proceeds benefiting the people served by SMCC. June 24 brings rock & roll and blues classics to St. Michaels waterfront performed by Blues Deville, with all performances listed at bitly.com/muskratmusic21.
Summer Camps for Children begin on June 29 on Tuesdays through Thursdays and provide age-appropriate activities for children entering K-5th grades. Camp themes include artistic expression, outdoor adventures, American Girl, Professor Beakers, and more. The camps continue through Aug. 5, with more information and limited registration at bitly.com/smccsummercamp.
SMCC’s Senior Programs are also taking place on Wednesdays from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and feature activities including bingo, painting, lunch, and fellowship. All are invited.
SMCC suspended its normal programs during the COVID-19 pandemic. The nonprofit continues to provide groceries and meals to those in need during select hours on Mondays and Fridays 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.
