There were gallery receptions and artists at work, local author Shelton Johnson signing copies of his book, plus people out dining and dancing despite the ominous clouds and weather forecasted for First Friday, July 6th. Bob Schaller and Friends, along with the K3 Musicians from the Southern Maryland Youth Orchestra & Choir, braved the elements and captured the stage with a “Throwback to the 60’s” concert until the rain came down. Despite the sudden showers it was a great evening for all and a record turnout for this annual event.
