The Marriage & Relationship Education Center is a 50l
(c) (3) faith-based organization established in 2004 and is located in the
Carroll Non Profit Center in Westminster. We are dedicated to improving the
lives of children in our community by strengthening families through marriage
and relationship education, partnerships and public awareness efforts.

As an organization, MREC works with a proactive, educational
approach through classes that teach skills necessary for couples to deal with
conflict while better understanding their mate.

In addition, MREC encourages couples and individuals through
awareness efforts to have positive connections/ experiences and make healthy
life decisions.

To maximize our impact, MREC staff is certified in many
curriculums to train other key individuals/churches as teachers. This knowledge
sharing creates a ripple effect of healthy relationship skills and
strengthens families in our community.

Our Founders - Retired Carroll County Public School
educators, Bill and Anne McKenna, have been married 53 years. They have
four children and 12 grandchildren. Bill spent over 30 years teaching,
coaching, and as an athletic director. The McKennas are certified in multiple
marriage education programs. They started their work in marriage education by developing
a marriage ministry in their local church. As the word spread to other
churches, they decided, with the encouragement of the local ministerium, to form
an independent organization that utilized a proactive approach to strengthening
families.

The Marriage & Relationship Education Center (formally
known as Marriage Resource Center) was founded in November of 2004 and gained
501(c) 3 status in December, 2006.

Lonely is the runner that runs two miles staring at a red ball on the floor. So what happened to spring? I actually like walking and running on treadmill at the fire station, but I guess I miss the Wakefield Valley Trail. I like listening to the music at 11, but prefer the outdoor scenery.

At Birdie’s in Westminster

At Birdie's in Westminster, enjoying a great cup of coffee, some me-time, and the current art exhibition, "Three Words," by Gerard Lonesome and Eleanor Tatreaux.
It is really a fun show. Do not miss it.

"THREE WORDS:" Works by Gerard Lonesome and Eleanor Tatreaux

"Gerard and Eleanore are twins from the planet Zebulon. Their art was delivered to us by courier pigeon several months ago. In their letter to us they stated that they telephonically thought of three words to create each one of their works, thus the show name, 'Three Words.'"

"They will travel to earth in light years to collect the money made from sales of this show in order to fund the takeover of planet Earth. Until such time, however, they will allow the Earthlings to use the profits from this show to fund the first ever Pride Festival in Westminster, Maryland.

"Gerard was educated at the finest art institute on Zebulon and Eleanore is a self-taught savant.

"Enjoy the show, it maybe your last, Earthling."

Increased Law Enforcement in Carroll Co. Public Schools Effective Wed., March 21, 2018



Increased Law Enforcement in Carroll Co. Public Schools Effective Wed., March 21, 2018

March 20, 2018

According to a recent joint release by the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office and Carroll County Public Schools: “In a partnership with the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office and the Carroll County Public Schools, the Carroll County Commissioners will fund an increased law enforcement presence in schools.

“Effective Wednesday, March 21, 2018, the Security Plan places Carroll County Sheriff’s Deputies at various schools throughout the county.

“These uniformed Deputies will not only interact with the students and faculty, but also act as a visible deterrent to any criminal activity. This Security Plan will improve safety and security for the remainder of this school year, while discussions on the feasibility of staffing a full School Resource Officer program can be explored.

“’The Board of Carroll County Commissioners believes adding the increased law enforcement presence will have a positive impact on school security and will benefit our entire school system,’ stated Board President Commissioner Dennis Frazier, ‘This investment assures the Carroll County community we are committed to a proactive approach to a safe and secure learning environment.’”

“According to Superintendent of Schools Stephen Guthrie, ‘We are thankful to the Carroll County Commissioners and the Sheriff for making safety in our schools a top priority.’”

No injuries were reported. Family is assisting the displaced occupants.

Bowman family awarded annual Ag Center Pioneer Award

A year ago, I wrote - Time Flies “Bowman family awarded annual Ag Center Pioneer Award” by Kevin Dayhoff February 24, 2017


Romantic that I am, I took my wife out on Valentine's Day, Feb. 14, to the annual Carroll County Agriculture Center dinner. Since 1993, the annual dinner has been used as an opportunity to honor individuals and businesses with the "Pioneer Award," in recognition for longstanding service to the Carroll County agriculture community and the Agriculture Center,

This year's award went to the R.D. Bowman family, which has been a cornerstone of the agricultural community through the family businesses that date back to 1928. Dirk Bowman and his wife Julie attended the dinner to receive the award on behalf of the family.

Dirk, his brother Dale, and his sister Dawn DeVivo are the third-generation owners of the Westminster feed sales business, R.D. Bowman & Sons Inc., and the Home & Garden Center, which opened in 1981.

According to a March 24, 1993 article in The Baltimore Sun by writers Ellie Baublitz and Tom Keyser, "In 1928, Ralph Dutterer Bowman bought a little country grocery store in Union Mills on a dirt road that is now Route 97, or Littlestown Pike. He operated the store for more than 30 years, during which time the big event was the Friday night banana auction.
