On Saturday, May 15, a variety of Easton-based organizations are teaming up for a spring version of Easton Community Day – An Arts & Culture Celebration. This event is a day for local residents to be together without gathering, support local businesses and enjoy some of the many things Talbot County has to offer.
The inaugural CommUNITY Day last November was so well received that there was energy for a repeat event. “All our organizations, some who participated in the fall and many that have joined us for spring, wanted collaborate again,” explains planning team lead Margaret Enloe, Executive Director of Waterfowl Chesapeake. “We all wanted come together to celebrate spring and support our community as it is today – rich in diversity, art, nature and culture.”
People can expect family and kids’ art activities (on-site and as ‘grab ‘n go’ kits), guided historic tours, educational lectures and displays, live music, free carriage rides and much more. Most activities will be outside in three Easton locations, the YMCA, the Talbot County Free Library and the Waterfowl Building/Academy Art Museum. Every organization will follow COVID-related safety protocols outlined by the State of Maryland at the time of the event.
CommUNITY Day is a collaboration across seventeen different organizations that provide a wide variety of services for our community: Avalon Foundation, Academy Art Museum, Building African American Minds, Critchlow Adkins Children’s Centers, Easton Arts District, Easton Economic Development Corporation, For All Seasons, Historical Society of Talbot County, Imagination Library, Talbot County Free Library, Talbot County Women’s Club, Talbot Hospice Talbot, Interfaith Shelter, The ARC of the Central Chesapeake Region, Waterfowl Chesapeake, and YMCA.
