— Blue sky and marvelous fall colors, it’s Frostburg State University Homecoming 2012! After much planning and tireless work, the Frostburg Community welcomed thousands of alumni and friends home to the mountain city.

As I look back over the activities, I am very proud to report that there were no serious incidents and our law enforcement partners were here in strength to keep our visitors and local community safe.

Maryland State Police, Allegany County Sheriff’s Office, C3I, and Frostburg State University Police, worked in conjunction with Chief Royce Douty and the men and women of the Frostburg City Police like a well-oiled machine.Frostburg Area Ambulance assisted in responding quickly to any requests and stood by for various activities throughout the weekend.

I would like to close by thanking a very dear friend, President Jon Gibraltar. We have come a long way together and I am very proud of the close working relationship we share for our community.

W. Robert Flanigan

Mayor of Frostburg
