We may only be in the final days of summer Laurie Rippons and Executive Director Jackie Vickers stand beside the first wreath submitted for the Festival of Wreaths 2016.[/caption], but we have already received our first wreath submission for the Festival of Wreaths that runs from November 10th to December 1st. Laurie Rippons found time to complete the first wreath of the year. Entitled “Summer’s End”, this wreath features dried lamb’s ear, blue hydrangeas, and an empty nest ready for occupancy.
If you are interested in submitting a wreath for this year’s Festival of Wreaths, the wreath entry deadline is October 28th. Please consider submitting your wreath sooner rather than later. The event takes several months to prepare and the more time we have to take pictures and plan, the better.
The 3rd annual Cambridge Wheels Car, Truck and Bike Show to benefit Pleasant Day Medical Adult Day Care Veterans was held on Saturday May 28th , the Saturday before Memorial Day. Attracting almost 50 cars, trucks and bikes from Talbot, Dorchester, Delaware ; it was a successful show. All funds were donated to the One Vet One Day Program. The Two Chicks catering truck provided all kinds of breakfast and lunch foods through the day and donated 10% plus to the Vets Program. In addition, the clowns Jordan and Jenna LeCompte were out there performing and selling 50/50 raffle tickets and Darrel Jackson, the winner of the 50/50 drawing, won $234.50 and donated $50.00 back to the Pleasant Day Vets Program. There were 30 trophies distributed and the Winner of the “Best in Show” was Bill Schuman of Oxford. He won showing his 1949 Mercury Lowrider.
Beginning November 12 and running through to December 3 is Pleasant Day’s 16th Annual Festival of Wreaths. Our facilities will be open to the public from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm to view more than 15 uniquely decorated trees and over 60 hand-crafted designer wreaths. A silent auction is open during this time for bidding on the wreaths, culminating in a Holiday Benefit Gala and Chamber Business After Hours on the evening of December 3. The Gala begins at 5:30 pm with free admission to all. The night’s events include a 50/50 raffle, a live auction with Buddy Foxwell, and the conclusion of the silent auction for the wreaths. Live entertainment will be playing throughout the center with local restaurateurs and caterers providing a taste of Dorchester. Free shuttle services will be available from the parking lot of Cambridge South Dorchester High School. We encourage everyone to come and celebrate this community event and wonderful time of year. For more information and pictures of the items for auction, please visit our Facebook page. All proceeds benefit the participants of Pleasant Day Medical Adult Day Care.
We just want to, once again, thank Mr. Ron Boltz and his dedicated team at Alarm Engineering. Through their “Helping Delmarva” initiative, they recently donated A COMPLETE VIDEO SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM, including the installation
and training. This is something we’ve wanted to add to our safety arsenal for many years but just couldn’t afford. Ron and Dave Davis took time to visit Pleasant Day to see our needs “first hand”. Alarm Engineering installed and has
maintained and monitored our alarm needs since we opened the facility on Cambridge Beltway back in 1998. They are top-notch professionals who stay on top of their game with the latest technologies and unsurpassed customer service.
Without any hesitation we highly recommend them for your alarm, security, surveillance and safety needs. Call Ray, the Facilities-Safety Manager, anytime at 410.228.0190 for more info.

Amazon will contribute .05% of your purchases to us! While it may not seem like much. we’ll receive 1/2 cent for every dollar you spend. Personally, during the course of a year I spend about $650.00, so that’s $3.25 they’ll donate. If just 10 people do the same, that’s $32.50 and if 100 people do the same, that’s $325.00 and if 1,000 people do it, that’s $3,250.00 ….got the idea?
