Sweet Success Business Forum this evening in Frostburg

As a member of the Frostburg Business and Professional Association (FBPA), I am pleased to inform the community of the “Sweet Success” event sponsored by the city of Frostburg and our organization.

In Frostburg, like most communities in Maryland, there are various programs available that are designed to support small businesses, and, at the FBPA’s request, the city has organized a business forum to provide information about these programs.

Presenters will include Vickie Swink, Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development; Ryan Davis, Tri-County Council of Western Maryland; Mark Malec, Small Business and Technology Development Center; and Frostburg Community Development staff.

I am a business owner in the community and recognize not only the importance of supporting existing businesses, but also encouraging new business development in order to continue to better our community. As such, the presentations will provide valuable information to both existing business owners and those considering starting a business in the area.

Topics will include business planning, tax credits, loans, grants and the permitting process.

The Sweet Success Business Forum is scheduled for Wednesday, April 23, from 7 to 9 p.m. at City Place, 14 S. Water St. in Frostburg. Parking is available at City Square parking lot and is free after 6 p.m. Best of all, cupcakes and drinks will be provided!

Again, on behalf of the FBPA, I’d like to thank the mayor and City Council for sponsoring and organizing this event and the presenters.

Please plan to attend. Should you have any questions, contact Elizabeth Stahlman at Frostburg City Hall,, or 301-689-6000, ext. 15.

  • Remember, we’re not immune to extinction

    I’d like to pose a theoretical scenario to Cal Thomas.

    If a medical specialist said, “Cal, you’ve got a serious physical problem. Do nothing and you’ll die soon. Follow my prescription, which involves certain life-style changes, and there’s a good probability you’ll live, even if your life may be a bit more constrained than now.”
