    The Davidsonville Country Market will hold its second annual Pie Run on Thanksgiving Day  from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Co-owner and baker extraordinaire Frannie Thompson and her husband Chas said more than 100 cars showed up last year and they expect the same this time around.
    A Pie Run is a car show where you spend a couple of hours hanging out with your classic car and car-enthusiast buddies and before you go home, you pick up a pie.   Pie Runs were originally a way to get husbands out of the house—and out of the kitchen—on Thanksgiving morning. The car enthusiasts arranged to get together under the auspice of “running to pick up a pie.” They hung around with their classic cars before picking up the pies and heading home. Over time, this Thanksgiving Day “errand” evolved into a tradition with men and women from all over the area meeting  up on Thanksgiving morning to admire classic cars.

BLOG: Gator Girls U9 Soccer Team Ends Season Undefeated

By Dave Ballard
This was a terrific season for our team, DAA U9 Girls Soccer. The Gators went undefeated, 8-0-2.
While there were many close games, the girls were able to overcome in-game deficits, short-handed squads and injuries.  A key point was a win against the tough SRYA Seahawks’ U9 Girls Soccer team for whom the Gators were tied with in points for most of the season.
With this being the first year of soccer for many of the girls on the team, we really didn’t know what to expect; but what a  great year it turned out to be. This group of girls is special; they are strong, confident and talented.  They were a joy to coach.
All year these girls played with big hearts, were committed to practicing, took instruction, and simply got better each week.  We really can’t stress how hard they worked. They earned this undefeated season.
Team members included:
·                                  Fiona Casey
·                                  Christian Duffy
·                                 Maddalyn Kunst
·                                 Emma Larson
·                                  Anna Ballard

    Davidsonville’s Mike Church graduated from St. Mary’s College in 2004.  Four months later, Church and three of his friends went on a bike ride through Europe, spilling over into Asia as part of a great, post-college adventure. Their travels took them through Syria, Turkey, Holland, Egypt and India.
    But as they trekked through western Nepal, warfare between Taoists and guerrillas forced Church to seek refuge in a village -- an event that would forever change his life.
    In the village of Bauniyan, Nepal, Church met two brothers, Bol and Ujjwal Bhat, who aspired to form an English school that taught local children how to read and write.
A few years and a couple trips to Nepal later, Church’s parents, John and Barbara Church, now run a not-for-profit organization that seeks to aid and support about 92 Nepalese children more than 7,000 miles away from their home in Davidsonville.

    The Anne Arundel County Council unanimously passed a bill this week that exempts certain buildings on farmland from following  current construction codes.   The bill seeks to help farmers increase profits and improve their property by creating additional value  by building structures used to create additional revenue sources such as vineyards and wineries.    
    This will mean additional income for the county government through increased valuation of the property and increased property taxes

      Davidsonville may soon have its own winery.  The grape vines are growing and starting to produce grapes.  
      Nearly three centuries after her ancestors started tilling this hill in Davidsonville, the 550-acre Dodon Farm remains the county's largest working family farm. Yet Dodon Farm is too small to make a profit from growing crops alone. Pittman and her husband, Tom Croghan, embraced the notion that to survive, they must process their produce, whether turning strawberries to jam, milk to ice cream or grapes into wine.
