Easton Community Day wraps up
EASTON, Md. – In Talbot County, the weekend-long Easton Community Day wrapped up today and people say the event was needed during this difficult time.
According to the Avalon Foundation Chief Operating and Finance Officer Jessica Bellis, the event was created after the 50th Annual Waterfowl Festival was canceled this year because of the pandemic.
The Avalon Foundation, the Waterfowl Chesapeake, the Chesapeake Multicultural Resource Center, Discover Easton, Academy Art Museum, the Talbot County Free Library, the Eastern Shore Land Conservancy, For All Seasons, the Talbot Historical Society, Christ Church Easton, and the Building African American Minds (BAAM) helped organize the event.
Event organizers say people got the chance to participate in all sorts of activities like bird watching and even a drive-thru art gallery.
Bellis says the event was a great way to have some fun while staying safe.
“We’re all in this pandemic together,” said Bellis.
“We all have to be creative and work together and try to find safe things to keep people connected,” said Bellis.
Bellis adds the event was also a chance to bring more foot traffic to the downtown area to help support local businesses.
