Sharing stories from our history:
A "Pathway through History 1865-1942" will lead visitors from the United States Colored Troops Memorial Monument to the Lexington Park Manor "Flat Tops" Buildings in John G. Lancaster Park. Four interpretive wayside signs placed along the path will mark milestones and challenges experienced by the African American (and broader) community from the end of the Civil War up to World War II. The four interpretive panels will enhance the USCT Memorial Monument and bring to light little known local history.
We're looking for your documents and photos to help us tell the story!
We need community participation on these projects! The Pathway through History Project is looking for photos, letters, military documents, or other mementos from the time period 1865 to 1942. If you have any item that you think may help us tell our story, we want to hear from you! Go to the UCAC Website at www.africanamericancontributions.com or www.ucaconline.org for information on how to share your photos or mementos.
Additional optional information:
A project committee comprised of representatives of Unified Committee for African American Contributions (UCAC) and the St. Mary's County Recreation and Parks and Tourism departments are collaborating with a research team of St. Mary's College of Maryland students under the direction of history professor Charles Holden.

Monster Glow Dash 2014
Friday, October 10th (Scary Glow) AND Saturday, October 11th (Glow)
2014 is the year of the 2nd Annual Monster Glow Dash 5K! The 1st Annual MGD 2013 sold out last year with 2300 registered participants in one night, and this year promises to be bigger, better, and scarier! Because one night wasn't insane enough for Southern Maryland, we're hosting two nights this year to give our participants their 2014 glow fix. Our Friday night glow run will feature some of the areas creepiest and scariest creatures guaranteed to haunt our runners throughout the course. For families and our glow addicts, we'll be hosting a strictly glow run course Saturday night after the monsters and creatures have moved on. And the party doesn't stop there - our DJ will be playing the hottest mixes at our MGD After Party again this year, complete with dancing, food, beverages, and more! This race is guaranteed to be the hottest 5K experience in the region!
Not only does this event promise our registrants an unforgettable experience, but it also benefits two amazing local non-profits. All proceeds will benefit Heroes for the Homeland, Inc and Summerseat Farm, Inc.
