May 2024 Issue

Dear Friends,

Happy Spring! What a great time to be on the mountain! In this larger issue of The Lake-Front, you’ll find the latest on all the fun happenings and events happening this month and beyond. And if you think you really know Garrett County, you may just be mistaken. Check out Collen DuBose’s article on some of the Hidden Gems in our area. Did you know we had a rock maze? A botanical garden? Read more beginning on page 6.

For a full listing of events, check out our Calendar beginning on Page 14 and read more about some of the more popular occasions throughout the magazine in our “What’s Happening” features. This month, our Business Spotlight shines on some dear friends of the magazine, Greg and Nina Elliott of Studio 24e. Some may remember their eclectic store from downtown Oakland, but they are still open in Thurmont, MD and all of their unique goods are available online. Read more on Page 28.

Mike Fratz brings back our Unsung Heroes column with a look at a very special local, Bill Schrider (page 36), as well as a look back at some of the fun happenings from last month in his popular Mike Drop column (page 42).

Be sure to patronize our amazing advertisers and whatever your pleasure this May, Enjoy!
