This week celebrity chef Bobby Flay caused quite the stir at Westfield Annapolis mall when he arrived at Williams-Sonoma for a booksigning. Flay was on hand Wednesday to sign copies of his new book Bar Americain.
Also this week, Patch profiled Dian Corneliussen-James, or CJ, as she's known to most, and more importantly the group she helped establish. Her continued work with METAvivor, a group dedicated to the raising awareness of Stage 4 breast cancer, as well as bolstering research efforts into the deadly disease.
Her work also earned her a spot as the Greatest Person of the Day on Huffington Post and was read and commented on by people all around the country and the world interested in the group's work.
It was also announced this past week that the Hospice of the Chesapeake will be leaving its current offices along Defense Highway and moving to a new more than 6-acre campus it recently purchased in Pasadena.
Hospice officials said the move was made possible in large part by an anonymous donation, which turned out to the be the single largest gift the group has ever received.
Finally, a single man on a solitary journey found himself with a honor guard through Greater Annapolis as he made his way to the State Capitol in Annapolis.
Retired Marine Mac McQuown left his home in Stafford, VA, on Sept. 11 to embark on a walking trip around the United States. He’s on a mission to raise awareness for veterans. Patch managed to share a few moments with him on his journey.
