Frederick’s Bark for Life Raises Almost $950 for The American Cancer Society Frederick Living residents, staff, volunteers, friends, and members of the local community made this year’s Bark for Life fundraiser another huge success! Forty dogs both large and small arrived through the front entrance on December 2nd to have their special moment with Santa and Mrs. Claus captured on film.

New Art Exhibit Featuring Paintings by David C. Page

November 5, 2018
