MarinaLife recently announced the winners of its seventh annual Best Marina contest, with the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s marina receiving 2016’s Best Small Marina award. Votes were made by boaters nationwide for their favorite marinas in the over-100 and under-100 slip categories.
With 40 slips along the St. Michaels harbor and the Miles River, CBMM’s marina is within walking distance of shops and restaurants in St. Michaels’ historic district, and offers recently upgraded electric, climate-controlled showers, free Wi-Fi, pump-out services, and other amenities to members.
Volunteers who recently completed the training are (left to right) standing Evangeline Pinkney, Centreville; Jacqueline Poyle, Centreville; Pat Whitehill, Centreville; Sharyn Eyre, Stevensville; seated Paula Wagner, Stevensville; and Georgia Stanford, Queen Anne.
In October, residents from Queen Anne’s County completed the three-day Compass Regional Hospice patient volunteer training program. Completion of this training qualifies these volunteers to provide emotional support and practical assistance to hospice patients, families, and caregivers in their homes, in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and in the residential hospice centers in Centreville and Denton.
