Dear Bay Weekly:     Thank you for the warm and thoughtful article in your May 19, 2011, edition [http://bit.ly/kzse9b]. Artist and member Margaret O’Brien was thrilled to be featured in this article along with an artistic photograph of her taken by Marilyn Baker
Dear Bay Weekly:     I am a member of the Parole Rotary Club and I want to thank you for your excellent coverage of the Naptown BarBayQ. I think the event was a great success. –Jeff Schaub, Annapolis
Dear Bay Weekly:     The Calvert Garden Club is grateful for the cover article about the 2011 Maryland House and Garden Pilgrimage at Scientists’ Cliffs that appeared in your April 28 edition. For the first time in the 74-year history of the Pilgrimage, houses and gardens in Scientists’ Cliffs were featured on this tour.     Margaret Tearman’s focus on the history of Scientists’ Cliffs was enhanced by her interviews with homeowners and photos, all of which captured the unique qualities of this community.
Dear Bay Weekly:     Great article on us at PLB Comics [May 12: Putting Ink to Paper: http://bayweekly.com/articles/people/article/putting-ink-paper].     Also a fantastic job on the article about Free Comic Book Day at Capital (Billy is the man!), Third Eye and Twilight Zone [The Comic Crusaders http://bayweekly.com/articles/people/article/comic-crusaders]. Thank you for contributing to giving the comics industry the good name it deserves!
Dear Bay Weekly:     I’m closing Main Street Gallery before long and want to thank you for the amazingly generous and steadfast support you have showered upon us. It has been 20 years of fun and adventure, but now I want my house back!     We’ll be doing smaller, more intimate affairs now and then; high on the list will be open-studio play dates featuring Parran Collery’s tiles (and sangria).
Dear Bay Weekly:     A friend and colleague from Missouri recently visited the area and brought her family. They made a special trip to the Calvert Marine Museum because of her young son’s interest in paleontology. Her son, Ben, had seen Dr. Stephen Godfrey featured in a National Geographic Prehistoric Predators special on Megalodon Sharks. The family was pleased that Dr. Godfrey agreed to meet five-year-old Ben and give him a special tour of the Calvert Marine Museum. Godfrey met them at the door and gave the family an unforgettable experience.
Be Kind to Animals Week is May 1-7, and it’s the perfect time to encourage the young animal lovers in your life to put their compassion into action. Relating to animals’ feelings helps kids develop empathy and grow into responsible, caring citizens.
On Saturday, April 30, 260 volunteers from Chesapeake Christian Fellowship in Davidsonville put their love into action. From West River to Pasadena, 520 hands were busy building ramps, replacing floors and roofs, painting walls, clearing wooded areas, mulching, weeding and planting.
Dear Bay Weekly:     Thank you for Heather Boughey’s great article about the Maryland Park Service’s Park Quest program in Bay Weekly’s April 14 edition [http://bit.ly/hecAhd].     Her first-person adventures as part of Team Bay Bougheys showcase the fun, excitement and outdoor challenges that other families experienced last summer during Park Quest. We look forward to reading about Team Bay Bougheys’ adventures again this year on our Facebook site — with more family photos as well.
Dear Bay Weekly:     I enjoyed reading Peggy Traband’s story about Mr. Owl [Creature Feature, April 14: http://bit.ly/gZhs2Z], who was rescued from Sudwell-Nutley Rd. I was sorry to learn he did not survive, despite the work of the Davidsonville Wildlife Rehabilitation Center [Correspondence, April 21: http://bit.ly/he2k8q]. I sent the story to my daughter, a senior at Cornell University, who is studying to be a rehabilitator. –Weems Duvall, Churchton
