10/28/2020 – HOT HOMETOWNS on Hot Country 93.1
Hello Crofton! We have experienced many changes in the past several months, and the Crofton Community Club is working hard to keep you up-to-date with public service announcements, closings, cancellations, and postponements. While we plan to continue with social distancing to protect the most vulnerable, we hope to connect with you via radio, social media, email, and phone. Please call your neighbors and loved ones and make sure they have what they need. Remember your local charities, churches, and businesses, and look for ways to support them, even if you cannot patronize them at this time. Be kind and be patient with service providers. You may want to call ahead before going places to make sure that they are accepting visitors. While we may not all be together, know that we are not alone.
Trick and Trunk or Treat at Downtown Crofton businesses this Friday from 3:30 to 5pm. Please wear face coverings when participating and respect social distancing. Businesses will hand out candy outside of their buildings or the trunks of their vehicles, so there’s no need to go in and out. Let’s make this a safe and fun activity for the youth of our community.
