Do you have a specialized craft or products from a home business to sell?  If you answered YES, then you should reserve a space at the KMS Community Yard Sale this spring! Click below for details.
An AMVETS donation truck will be on site after the sale to collection unsold/unwanted items.

HERtime2shine - 4/22

HERtime2shine is a free carnival-style family fun day open to all ages in celebration of National Girls and Women and Sports Day. The event will take place on April 22 from 10am - 1pm at the Silver Spring Civic Building. The event was founded last year as a way to empower girls to get involved in sports and live healthy, active lifestyles by bringing the county's sports and fitness organizations together to showcase new opportunities.
Sports and fitness vendors will host interactive and fun activities. Participants are encouraged to be active by completing vendor activities such as Zumba sessions, soccer juggling contests and more to earn tickets and win cool prizes or be entered into a raffle. This event is free to attend.
