Happy Maryland Day!
Even though I am not originally from Maryland, I was pretty excited to be a Maryland-er for the day! Maryland Day is an annual event hosted at the University of Maryland, College Park. It attracts thousands yearly where everyone enjoys a day of good food, games, informative booths, raffles, cooking demos, and more! The interns were fortunate this year to volunteer at either the UMD internship booth where there was a game of corn hole, the UMD extension booth where they were passing out Maryland swag, or the UMD Campus Sustainability booth which was hosting a "What's in Season" game and passing out kale plants or making bean pots.
We all took turns volunteering at a designated booth, but also took some time to walk around and explore the other events. This was a great way opportunity for the interns to get involved in the community help out at a campus event. Luckily the rain held off and people were able to enjoy the nice weather as they strolled around campus.
