FCSO warns of new scam

Frederick County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) would like to remind residents that at no time will the Sheriff’s Office ask for money over the phone, nor will they ask for a gift card for payment.

If you receive a call from someone stating they are Chris Peterson with the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office stating you have a warrant, this is a scam.

If you have any questions about a call you received from someone stating, they are with the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office
please hang up and call the office directly to verify.

Shenandoah National Park has selected five artists for its annual Artist-in-Residence program.

The program gives artists an opportunity to creatively explore Shenandoah’s natural and cultural resources and pursue their artistic discipline.

Each artist will spend three weeks in Shenandoah National Park and create an original piece reflecting on the experience of donating to the park.

Artists also present public programs about their art and their residences. Shenandoah’s Artist -in-Residence program is supported by generous donations to the Shenandoah National Park Trust.

Shenandoah is one of numerous National Park Service sites across the country that have Artist-in-Residence programs to inspire artists to create and share art that not only motivates and encourages millions of people to visit and explore, but also helps build awareness and develop stewardship of these beautiful public lands.
