St. Mary's is the perfect place to experience the magic of the holidays while spending time with family and friends. See the lights dance to holiday music at the Flat Iron Farm Christmas Village & Light Display. See the Piney Point Lighthouse, Museum & Historic Park Holiday Exhibit, featuring nautical holiday decor & exhibits. Or, head over to the Christmas Doll and Train Exhibit at St. Clements Island Museum, featuring "Christmas by the Bay", a special exhibit of holiday dolls & vintage trains depicting scenes of Chesapeake coastal living in the early 20th century. Both museum shops feature wonderful nautically-themed gifts. These events run until New Year's Day (or a bit after), so be sure not to miss them! Don't forget, Historic Downtown Leonardtown is a great place to bring the out-of-town relatives to shop, eat, or explore! Click Here for more Events & Entertainment around St. Mary's!

SMECO alerts customers to avoid scams
Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative (SMECO) has been alerted to a fraud scam in which customers are asked to provide payment information in order to avoid having their electric service disconnected. SMECO warns customer-members not to provide personal financial or electric account information to unauthorized callers. Customers should not provide Green Dot or Moneygram payments to callers claiming to be from SMECO. According to Tom Dennison, managing director of government and public affairs, customers have recently contacted SMECO to notify the co-op that they have received fraudulent calls from people threatening to disconnect their electric service. He said, "It seems like every few months we get a wave of customers who say they've received scam phone calls. If customers receive a phone call from someone threatening to disconnect their power, they may hang up and call SMECO directly at 1-888-440-3311. Our contact center is open 24 hours a day, every day." Read More
