News Release, Southern Maryland community Resources

It is with great disappointment that Southern Maryland Community Resources announces the cancellation of SMCR Dragon Quest 2020, slated to take place on August 15th. This social-distance-friendly event was intended to replace the annual Solomons Dragon Boat Festival that had to be canceled earlier due to COVID-19 restrictions on public gatherings. 

This substitute event was carefully structured around Governor Hogan’s state mandates, including the wearing of masks. However, in light of his announcement of recent contact-tracing statistics on July 29, we have made this decision in an effort to be even more diligent in focusing on the health safety of our fellow Southern Marylanders.

SMCR is extremely grateful to our sponsors (Cedar Point Federal Credit Union, Amewas, Glen & Barbara Ives, Patuxent Presbyterian Church, Spalding Consulting, and Quality Transfer & Storage); the many businesses and organizations that volunteered to serve as sites for this scavenger hunt event; our participants who had registered; all our volunteers who were ready and willing to step up and lend a hand; and to all our partners and the media outlets who helped promote this event and the SMCR organization.

Thank you for believing in SMCR and the mission of this organization. We hope to work together in future endeavors.
