Posted by Laura Moore on

Last October, I was at a fundraiser for a local organization, Stepping Out for Breast Cancer, when a reporter from the Baltimore Sun introduced himself.

We burned our socks to celebrate the start of Spring, ate LOTS of oysters and heard some great music from Dan Haas and Them Eastport Oyster Boys! It was a chilly day but we still had a great turnout. My daughter even got her picture with Governor Hogan!
