Out & About

February 2012

Outside The Parke
By Nate Boring notboring@live.com

Not surprisingly, February is a little thin in Outside the Parke activities. However, if you are searching for a theme for a casual dinner party, you may consider that February is the National ________ (fill in the blank) Awareness Month for Pet Dental Health, Termite, Heartworm, and Heart Disease. Speaking of “heart,” don’t forget February 14…Valentine’s Day. You know your duty. Nor do you want to neglect ob­serving Ground Hog Day on February 2 with a bowl of pop­corn and watching the movie of the same name.

This month is also the host month for two national holi­days. President’s Day falls on the 20th, and you may wish to spend the day researching the candidates for the Republican nomination or reenergizing your support for the current presi­dent. Of greater significance for many is Super Bowl Sunday on the 5th. As of this writing, the mighty Ravens and the giant Giants remain alive in their quest for the Lombardi Trophy. (My counseling sessions are helping me to blot out the painful memory of the Steelers getting “Tebowed.”)

Outside the Parke this month features:

February 9 – 12 – Ringling Bros and Barnum& Bailey Presents Barnum Bash comes to the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center Thursday, February 9 – Sun­day February 12. All their amazing acts are tricked-out for the circus party and are ready to perform wild feats of wonder and strength!

February 14 – Aging Gracefully, A Community Conversa­tion. The Ocean Pines Library is presenting something differ­ent at 2pm. Everyone who is aging is invited. Come and share what you’ve learned and find out what others have learned about the joys, problems, and successes of growing older, wis­er and better at this thing called life. Sign up on signup sheet at the Ocean Pines Branch or call 410-208-4014. See their article on Page 4.

February 17 – 19 – Seaside Boat Show at the OC Convention Center. See over 300 boats, including sail, pontoon, inshore & offshore boats & wave runners. Admission. Fri., 11am-7pm; Sat., 10am-7pm; Sun., 11am- 5pm. Convention Center.

February 28 – The Harlem Globetrotters have a show at the Wicomico Youth & CivicCenter at 7 pm. Far more exciting than the NBA!

Finally, if you are beginning to suffer from seasonal af­fective disorder, remember that Springfest is just around the corner in early May.
