Welcome to SPRING from the University of Maryland Charles County Extension!

Welcome to spring everyone! Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy lives to catch up with all that is happening at Charles County Extension! As our world moves to reopening and we embrace a new reality, we hope you are finding this to be a time of rejuvenation and hopefulness.

Our UME Charles County faculty and staff are gradually returning to the office space and are looking forward to connecting through the resumption of some in-person programming and providing appointments to meet and address the needs of clientele. We began offering these opportunities more broadly in April and will continue to expand throughout the summer as COVID caseloads are expected to decline. We are using procedures prepared by our UME Administration for in-person activities, and following CDC guidelines to assure the health and safety of all we serve.

We hope you have the opportunity to join us and engage in upcoming events and activities that we are involved in. Now that we are gradually returning to the office please take the opportunity to call, email or make an appointment if you have a question, need or concern that we can address. We look forward to hearing from you.
And, if you haven’t noticed, we have a new website! Please visit us at UME-Charles County Extension. There, you will find information regarding all our programs, lots of educational resources, and upcoming events, both local and statewide.

In this issue, as with the others, we continue to share progress and direction for our ongoing efforts and programs, provide notice of local UME events and activities, acknowledgements of service and accomplishments by our volunteers and local youth, along with updates on how our faculty and staff are working to continue to meet local needs to support you and others in the community.
Thank you for your continued support!
