A look back to an epic event...

 

 

2014 WAS A BANNER YEAR!

There was a lot of bicentennial buzz in September of 2014 - 200 years later. It was all quite incredible and a "spectacular" time was had all over town!!!

We created a Giant Living Flag in honor of the Bicentennial of The Star-Spangled Banner making HISTORY AT FORT MCHENRY! In a spectacular show of red, white and blue on September 9th at Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine, more than 6,600 Maryland students, teachers and chaperones created the largest 15 stars and 15 stripes Star-Spangled Banner Living Flag ever assembled.
