                   In Loving Memory Of Our Friend & Mentor
                                      Ms. Eunice Q. Sorin
                                           8.21.23 - 4.16.11
Eunice has meant so much to so many of us in a multitude of ways over the years. We will miss her smile &
her spark, but through all of our memories she will live on forever. So when you think of the emptiness you
feel without her here, share a story of her in your life and fill that space with feelings of love and laughter…..

                                                                         SHE IS GONE
                                                               You can shed tears that she is gone
                                                               You can smile because she has lived

                                                    You can close your eyes & pray that she will come back
                                                     You can open your eyes and see all that she has left.

                                                      Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her

                                                           You can be full of the love that you shared.

                                                   You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
                                                    You can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.

                                                        You can remember her and only that she is gone
                                                         You can cherish her memory and let it live on.

                                                    You can cry & close your mind, be empty & turn back
                                                             You can do what she would want:

                                                         SMILE, OPEN YOUR EYES, LOVE & GO ON

     Tuesday, April 5, the Worcester County Commissioners and Volun-
teer Services Manager Cyndy Howell recognized the contributions of area
volunteers during the 2011 Worcester County’s Most Beautiful People
(WCMBP) Volunteer Awards Ceremony.
     This celebration honored 15 individuals and two organizations recog-
nized by Worcester County for their ongoing service to the community.
     Individuals recognized by Worcester County included Fred Fields,
Lanny and Kay Hickman, Sue Hoshino, Patricia Johnstone, Mary LaCurts,
Rita Lawson, Coleen Mister, Arlene and Ted Page, Barbara Passwater,
Pearl Purnell, Stephen Rosen, Alice Tweedy and Corrine Wall. The two
groups recognized included Lower Shore Court Appointed Special Advo-

     These outstanding individuals and organizations are among the 1.3
million Maryland volunteers whose combined volunteer hours represent a
worth of $4 billion this past year.
     ―We always comment about the beautiful resources here, like the
beaches, but the largest resource we have by far is our volunteers,‖ said
Howell. ―The contributions of these outstanding individuals make it possi-
ble to provide public services that might otherwise be too costly to pro-
     Worcester County Government is extremely grateful for each of the
countless volunteers who dedicate their time, talent, and resources day in
and day out to improve the lives of those around them. It is these individu-
als and groups, whose good works often go unnoticed by the general pub-
lic, who make Worcester County such a wonderful place to call home.

A Message from the Governor
Innovate, Educate, Rebuild & Restore
Yesterday I joined Senate President Miller, Speaker Busch, Lt. Governor
Brown and many other special guests for the first bill signing just hours af-
ter the end of this year's legislative session. I'd like to thank the members of
the General Assembly for their hard work, dedication and civil discourse
during 90 tough days.

Over the course of this session, we've made some vital progress for the
people of our State – finding ways to work together and take a significant
step forward in generating capital for our businesses, expanding healthcare
to more Marylanders, and creating jobs for our families.

Together, we passed a fiscally responsible budget that cuts nearly a
billion dollars in additional spending and supports nearly 15,000 jobs rebuilding our schools and infrastructure. We've also
strengthened our innovation economy with InvestMaryland – a $100 million tax credit to fuel venture capital and create jobs.

As a leader in innovation, science and discovery, we've invested in the Biotech Tax Credit, increased funding for stem cell re-
search, incentivized the purchase of electric vehicle charging equipment, expanded access to credit for small businesses, and se-
cured funds for Maryland's film industry to bring jobs and revenue to our state.

In an effort to protect jobs for our families, we've also provided necessary funding for Maryland's horse racing industry to save
thousands of horse and agriculture related jobs. And as school lets out for the summer, we're supporting more than 900 summer
jobs for our teenagers.

In this fight for our economic future, we are in a battle for jobs and opportunity. The states that win will be those that spur innova-
tion and protect key priorities. To make Maryland a winner, we must we must educate, innovate, rebuild, and restore.

  Social Media Architects Helps Small Business Manage Online Marketing
Social Media Architects of Delmarva is now open for business. The newly formed social media marketing agency is a partnership between
Social Media Expert Ira Wolfe and Marketing & PR Consultant Deserie Lawrence.

When Wolfe and Lawrence first met, they shared similar stories about their clients’ frustration with keeping up and managing their social me-
dia marketing campaigns. ―Opening social networking site accounts might be free and easy,‖ Wolfe contends, ―but success does not come
without effort. Adding a few social media icons to your website and posting an occasional sale announcement on Facebook is not social media

Just a few years ago, a website with a few good keywords was good enough for a business to be found when customers searched. Today a
website just sits there unless a business is ―serving fresh content daily,‖ according to Lawrence. A robust social media presence is a require-
ment if a business expects to be seen and heard. ―If a business isn’t engaging and interacting with customers, the silence is deafening,‖ Law-
                                    rence tells her clients. Wolfe agrees: ―A website without a social media plan is the equivalent of an attrac-
                                    tive 4-color print brochure stored in a closet –it doesn’t do a thing if no one sees it.‖

                                    Social Media Architects delivers a simple solution for marketing a business online - offer fresh, relevant con-
                                    tent. ―It doesn’t really matter what you say and where you say it as long as a customer finds value in it and
                                    … you feed the social media monster frequently,‖ says Wolfe. ―Social media marketing done right is afford-
                                    able and effective. The other option is Pay-Per-Click (PPC) programs such as Google Adwords. PPC unfor-
                                    tunately is trying to buy your way to the top. It’s the lazy man’s approach to marketing and gets expensive.
                                    It’s also not sustainable – once you stop paying, your online marketing comes to a screeching halt with new

Wolfe’s personal experience is a testament to how a small business can leverage social media marketing and outrank much larger competitors
who have much bigger budgets and more staff.

As the president and founder of a small business (Success Performance Solutions), he personally engineered his company’s website into the
top 3 percent of all websites in the United States and has been recognized as one of the top bloggers in the human resources industry. For the
past two years, Wolfe has been sharing his experience by teaching social media workshops and classes to local business people at local Cham-
bers of Commerce, Wor-Wic Community College, and SBDC at Salisbury University. Lawrence also has been incorporating social media into
her clients’ and employers’ marketing plans. ―The time for talk is over,‖ she says. ―Reputation management and brand awareness are not just
buzz words anymore; they are critical functions required to protect and grow a company’s customer assets.‖

Social Media Architects of Delmarva is a boutique social media marketing agency that offers small business help in designing and building a brand awareness
