Monday, December 2


Today Celebrates: Cyber Monday and National Fritters Day!

Lunch for today includes: Mini Calzones with Marinara Dipping Sauce, Chicken Tenders with Roll, Baked Fries, Steamed Broccoli, Chilled Fruit, and Milk.

The Better Business Bureau is warning customers of scammers trying to bring in some cash this Cyber Monday. Cyber Monday is expected to bring even more sales than online Black Friday sales, which this year totaled to $7.4 million spent by consumers. The BBB says to watch out for false advertising and to keep a close eye on web addresses. Scammers love to create look-a-like websites. The goal is to get people to type in login credentials, so they can steal customers’ information. They also suggest for customers to keep their antivirus software up-to-date and to use credit cards to shop online. If any shady charges turn up later, customers can dispute them. Debit cards don’t offer the same protection.

Parade season is upon us! TONIGHT, the Pocomoke parade will begin at 7:00 pm, while on Thursday, December 5th, Berlin will host its parade beginning at 7:00 pm. Then on Saturday, December 7th, bundle up for the Ocean City Parade beginning at 11:00 pm. Rounding out the season, Snow Hill will host its parade on Monday, December 9th, starting at 7:00 pm. Good luck to all those participating in the parades this season!
