Our community has been struck with an unthinkable tragedy and our hearts are saddened. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Julianne Rosela who tragically passed Sunday, June 28th, when a racing boat lost control and collided with her spectator vessel at “Thunder On The Narrows”. Julianne, is the younger sister of one of our cadet members, Allison.
Funeral services for Julianne are planned for 11 am on Friday, July 3 at the Kent Island United Methodist Church, 2739 Cox Neck Road, Chester, MD 21619, where friends and family may visit on Thursday from 5-7 pm. Burial will follow the service at Woodfield Cemetery in Galesville, MD. Please consider donating to her memorial fund to help Julianne’s family honor her memory and help fund her funeral services.

Have the chimney inspected annually and cleaned if necessary, especially if it has not been used for some time.
• Do not use flammable liquids to start or accelerate any fire.
• Keep a glass or metal screen in front of the fireplace opening, to prevent embers or sparks from jumping out, unwanted material from going in, and help prevent the possibility of burns to occupants.
• Don’t use excessive amounts of paper to build roaring fires in fireplaces. It is possible to ignite creosote in the chimney by overbuilding the fire.
• Never burn charcoal indoors. Burning charcoal can give off lethal amounts of carbon monoxide.
• Keep flammable materials away from your fireplace mantel. A spark from the fireplace could easily ignite these materials.
• Before you go to sleep, be sure your fireplace fire is out. NEVER close your damper with hot ashes in the fireplace. A closed damper will help the fire to heat up again and will force toxic carbon monoxide into the house.
• If synthetic logs are used, follow the directions on the package. NEVER break a synthetic log apart to quicken the fire or use more than one log at a time. They often burn unevenly, releasing higher levels of carbon monoxide
