Another First: Third Friday Art Stroll ~ Downtown Pocomoke City

What a wonderful evening to stroll downtown Pocomoke!  Clear skies, nice breeze, plenty to see and lots of people!  Most of us have always been aware that there are many talented people in and around Pocomoke but Friday night gave so many  the chance to see who these people actually are and how gifted they are at what they do. Whether it's painting, singing,  photography or baking each individual person is greatly talented!

Finally got a chance to visit  "Second Time Around".  Well, they have just about everything you can think of for sale and lots to look at. I saw a few things I would love to have but just have no place to put them.

 Jenny Somers had her art work on display and she has always made painting look so easy and so much fun.  Learning to paint is on my 'bucket list', Jenny.  Oh, and I did order a handpainted Christmas tree ornament with the Riverside Grill on it for my tree this year.  Can't wait to see it!

Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves and a night this always gives you the opportunity to see people you haven't seen in a long time.  We enjoyed immensely.  Stores were filled with people and each one had their share of refreshments! 
A team of police officers Pocomoke City can be proud of.
Officer Perkins, Lee Brumley ( once a  wonderful Pocomoke City officer for many years and is now with Somerset County), Lt. Craven, Officer Tucker and Officer Zina Means.  They made their rounds up and down the street Friday evening chatting, getting acquainted with those they did not know. 

Everytime I've been to Pocomoke I've always missed the chance to go into Cole's Cakes.  I like cake- especially cupcakes and Friday night, with my husband with me,  this was my chance to get him to buy me some of those delicious treats everyone raves about.  My photo that I took of her new painted store front turned out cummy- so I'm borrowing hers that was taken during the block party a few weeks ago.
Cole's Cakes Photo
If you haven't had any of these cupcakes please take time to drop by and purchase one.  The itty bitty ones were yummy but you really do need to go for the larger ones.......Husband ate his that night.  I saved mine for breakfast the next morning....yes, I did.  Well, that chocolate cupcake is history and I am ready for MORE!  The first thing I noticed about the cupcake, aside from being delicious, was how light it was.  I'm not telling any more- just try them.  Now, I did take a photo of the dinosaur cake being made but that photo came out looking like something hideous so I'll just opt to post a photo of it when the cake is decorated.
Thanks again Cole's Cakes for being so kind and helpful.  Thanks for the pastry bag...will use it when I stuff strawberries!
Mar-Va Theater was filled and Riverside Grill was doing a fantastic business!  Keep in mind that there were many more displays of talent  by the artists besides the ones I have posted. 
Friday evening was fun!  Angela Manos, Downtown Coordinator for Pocomoke City, deserves an applause as do all the merchants, Pocomoke Chamber of Commerce and everyone that displayed their talents. 

FYI- I received a phone call late Friday night to tell me that downtown Pocomoke was still abuzz well after 9:00 with people strolling....
This is  good and many of us can't wait until the next time!

Great job, Angela!

Pocomoke City "National Night Out" 2012

Pocomoke City Police Chief Kelvin Sewell and the Pocomoke City Police Department did an excellant job  in hosting the National Night Out in Pocomoke last night.  I'm sure lots of the planning was left up to Angel and some others and they did a marvelous job!  A big thank you to all of you from me.  Great job!!

Pocomoke City certainly has had lots of great things happening in the past few months.  Most of  accomplishments  had been on the drawing board for quite awhile.  New restaurants, ribbon cutting ceremonies, a block party, a new station for the Pocomoke City Police Department, a new Pocomoke City Police Chief....the list goes on.  However, as excited as we all are when these things come around there is always a part in some (including myself)  that think of those that have passed this lifetime and wish so much they were here to enjoy what would have made them so proud also. 

 Councilman Honis Cane, Mayor Curt Lippoldt and Councilman Bob Hawkins....  They would be excited.  Most of all they would be proud.

Mayor Bruce Morrison with Pocomoke City Chief Kelvin Sewell
Thanks for everything Mr. Mayor and Chief!
Laura and Mayor Morrison
Chief Sewell and Laura.  By the way, that's my husband in the background.  Bless his heart.  I drug him right from work to Cypress Park.  I appreciate the fact that he understands how important it is for me to be in Pocomoke and how much I love these people.....(they let me take their pictures)  Besides, my husband keeps upgrading my cameras so it's partly "his fault".

The first person to greet me at the park yesterday evening was someone I have known forever and had not seen for many years.  That's Oscar Townsend on the left with Councilman Don Malloy, Chief Sewell, and Councilman Rob Clarke.
Most of us were thinking hot dogs for dinner but hamburgers and french fries were served.  These guys did some fast grilling and lots of it.  Thanks to all of you.  It was great!

OC 104 kept the music going....and going....

 Pocomoke Karate showed all of us what they could do.  The young people are amazing!  The discipline they have is just amazing...even for the tiny ones.

Not a very nice photo of the small dog.  He was standing in line and seemed to actually have a smile on his tiny face. 

I believe this is Pocomoke City Police Lt. Green speaking with a couple of gentlemen who stopped by for National Night Out.

There's more............
