SOS: Help Our Orchid Thrive!




ALD has been fostering an orchid in our office for the past five years... and it's finally trying to bloom again!

Any tips on how to get the stem to grow vertically? No one on staff has a green thumb and we could use all the help we can get!

Google Earth - The Underground Railroad

The Google Earth website has numerous educational pathways to explore, including one about the Underground Railroad. 

One of the sites they highlight is the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historical Park in Dorchester County, Maryland, where we worked on the Visitor's Center back in 2017. The park is site 6 of the 9 highlighted.

Check out the amazing Google Earth website and learn more about other important historical sites that were instrumental in the transport of thousands of American slaves to freedom.

Looking Back - The Harriet Tubman Visitor's Center

We're starting 2020 with a look back at a previous project - The Harriet Tubman Visitor's Center in Church Creek, Maryland. 

During her recent holiday travels, Kathy had the opportunity to visit the Center, which originally opened back in March 2017. It's still looking good! 

Check out their website to plan your own trip to learn about the life and legacy of Harriet Tubman.

Holiday Cheer!












Everyone at ALD would like to thank you all for the holiday cheer! 

The cards and yummy food have certainly put a smile on our faces and have added a festive atmosphere to our office.


We're sorry we didn't get around to sending cards this year, but we hope you all have a wonderfully happy holiday season!

Best wishes!!
