Thank you to everyone who attended the GreenGive Kickoff Party
Tuesday, May 28
Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts
801 Chase Street, Annapolis
5:30 - 7:30 p.m.

 

Over 100 people enjoyed tasty appetizers and beverages, including "Stormwater Swirl!" We will also be treated to a performance that celebrates the beauty and diversity of the greatest natural resource in our region, the Chesapeake Bay. Members of the Annapolis Chorale performed a movement from “Chesapeake Triptych: Cry of Earth's Tidal Places,” a new choral/orchestral work by composer Kathy Wonson Eddy commissioned by Live Arts Maryland and conducted by another local treasure, Maestro Ernie Green.

County Executive Steuart Pittman gave a rousing talk that encouraged everyone to support the ten GreenGive partners, as did Maryland Hall President and CEO Margaret Davis.

Thank you to:
