Boost Your Brain
May 19th from 12:45 - 2:00 pm By Dr. Majid Fotuhi

Dr. Majid Fotuhi

Dr. Fotuhi is the Founder and Chief Medical Officer of the NeurExpand Brain Center, a neurology services organization to maintain, improve, and promote brain health. Through its stand-alone treatment centers and collaborations with major tertiary hospitals, the Center is the first and only mainstream science-based, multidisciplinary program devoted to improving memory, reducing the epidemic of Alzheimer ’s disease and strokes, and enhancing long-term brain health and performance.

Regarded as one of the nation’s foremost authorities on memory loss and dementia, Dr. Fotuhi received his medical degree (cum laude) from Harvard Medical School in Boston and his Ph.D. in neurosciences from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. He completed his neurology residency and fellowship training at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Dr. Fotuhi’s initial clinical research at Johns Hopkins focused on basic brain neurochemistry and on finding effective ways to prevent dementia. His research included longitudinal studies to determine the beneficial role of vitamins and natural supplements in maintaining cognitive function and brain health.
His recent research on the effects of aging on the brain has shown that the brain does not stop growing in childhood, and adults of all ages can grow the size of their brain’s hippocampus, which is critical for short term memory. Based on his studies at Johns Hopkins and Harvard, Dr. Fotuhi developed a comprehensive clinical 3-month “Brain Fitness Program” to help middle-age people sharpen their memory quickly and keep their brain young for years to come. Dr. Fotuhi’s findings have been published in prestigious journals such as the Journal of Neuroscience, The Lancet, Nature, Neurology, Neuron, and Proceedings of National Academy of Science, and cited by thousands of scientists around the world.
Dr. Fotuhi has dedicated much of his time to educating the public about issues related to memory and aging. He has been the visiting professor and keynote speaker for conferences in China, Japan, Canada, Israel and other countries around the world. His first book, The Memory Cure: How to Protect Your Brain Against Memory Loss and Alzheimer's Disease, has sold more than 100,000 copies. His second book, The New York Times Puzzles to Keep Your Brain Young: The 6-Step Age-Defying Program, is the focus of his popular PBS program called Fight Alzheimer’s Early.
Dr. Fotuhi has been featured on numerous national media, including the Boston Globe, BusinessWeek, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, ABC News, CNN, Discovery Channel, Forbes, USA Today, and the Dr. Oz Show. His third book, Boost Your Brain, the New Art and Science Behind Enhanced Brain Performance, was published September 10, 2013.

   New trash/litter wash down the river after each major rain storm   

Help us clean up a section of the Patapsco River watershed in a secluded area of Patapsco State Park in the Ilchester/Orange Grove Area of Patapsco State Parkland in Ellicott City/Catonsville! 
  
Date
Saturday, April 18, 2015
                                                                           
Time
10 am - 1 pm   Registration is from 9:45 - 10 am - thanks for arriving a little early so we can start on time!

Where
A secluded section of Patapsco Valley State Park land off of Ilchester Road in Ellicott City and River Road in Catonsville.

Registration   
To register, go to   http://www.patapscoheritagegreenway.org/eventcal.html    Click on "Event Registration." 

Parking 
Parking will be along River Road in Catonsville. 
The closest intersection to parking/registration is off off South Hilltop Road and River Road in Catonsville.  Follow the Patapsco Heritage Greenway signs to direct you to registration.

Do not park along Ilchester Road as there are traffic signs that ban parking...if you park there, you may get a parking ticket!

Directions
 
In Howard County, from Maryland Route 103 (Montgomery Road) in Ellicott City, turn at the light onto Ilchester Road.  Follow the road all the way down to the end until you cross the river.  This becomes River Road and then park along the right-hand side the road and/or look for staff in orange safety vests to help direct you to parking.     

In Baltimore County, from Maryland Route 144 (Frederick Road), turn at Thistle Road and travel approximately one mile until it dead ends into River Road.  Turn left and drive approximately 3/10 of a mile.  Park on the left-hand side of the street along River Road and/or look for staff in orange safety vests to help direct you to parking.   

Registration will be located near the bridge off of Ilchester/River Road.  Look for the Patapsco Heritage Greenway signs!    
  
Closest address: This area does not have any buildings close by. Look for where River Road in Catonsville and Ilchester Road in Ellicott City meet.

Look for the posted signs and stream captains wearing the bright orange safety vests to direct you to registration!    

Age Restrictions
You are welcome to bring your family and friends. Children under 16 are welcome if they are supervised and accompanied by an adult volunteer.  Because this is an extremely busy area, parents must watch their children closely for on-coming traffic along the nearby roads.

What to Wear    
We recommend our volunteers wear a hat, long pants and sleeves, so any prickly underbrush or insects won't bother you, and if we find any sharp scrap metal, you won't get a scrape!    Boots are a good idea, especially if you plan to get in the water!  And we need folks to get in the river to pull out junk that has been washed downriver from recent storms! 

What to Bring
Please bring your own work gloves and any garden tools that you think will help to remove embedded junk or pull out litter and trash underneath underbrush!  We only have a handful of tools to lend to our volunteers so we really appreciate it when you bring your own (or you will have to share with others). Please mark your name on any tools/equipment you bring with you using a marker so in case we find them later, we can be sure to return them to you.       

Before you leave home

There are no nearby public restrooms available at this site. Please be prepared before you leave or you will have to get in your car and travel about a mile to the nearest public restroom.

We appreciate and recommend you bring your own water/drink, sunscreen and insect repellent. If you are allergic to insect bites or stings, please bring any needed medications and notify the stream captain of your allergy.   

Hope you will join us!

Catonsville's Farmers Market
May 3 - Nov 22, 2015

Catonsville's Sunday Farmers Market offers
Relaxed Weekend Shopping in a Community Festival Setting

Catonsville Sunday Market

If you enjoy Saturdays in the park, you've got to try Sundays at our Catonsville Farmer's Market, located at 730 Frederick Road, in the parking lot behind Friendly's.

Sponsored by the Catonsville Chamber of Commerce, the weekend market celebrates its Opening Day on Sunday, May 3 and runs, RAIN OR SHINE, through November 22, 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Its growing number of vendors offer a wonderful array of Maryland farm-fresh foods, from poultry, pork and eggs, to produce, fruits and herbs, with baked goods and unique specialty items rounding out the offerings.

But that's just the beginning. Throughout the season local musicians and community organizations will participate in the market. The Chamber's Sunday venue is a community event where you'll gather with friends and neighbors for a relaxed, old-fashioned farmers' market experience.

The market is now an authorized FMNP Farmers Market and certified vendors may accept WIC and SFMNP checks. For details, call the Catonsville Chamber at 410-719-9609 or email chamber@catonsville.org.

The Catonsville Historical Society would like to invite you to its house and garden tour on Saturday, May 16th, from 10a.m. until 5p.m.  Because there’s so much to see this year we’ve extended the tour an hour. 
Catonsville’s architecture is quite diverse and that will be showcased in this year’s tour. 

Among others you’ll be able to tour Victorian, four-square and exposed aggregate polychrome concrete homes as well as one of our beautiful convent properties.  Renovations abound as do fabulous eyes for color and décor.  Keep your fingers crossed that we have a lovely warm spring so the gardens will be bursting with color.
Since the tour occurs the Saturday after Mother’s Day, think about what a great gift this would be.  We will have gift certificates for that occasion, and these as well as the tickets will be available after April 1st. 

Ticket prices are $25 for members of the Catonsville Historical Society and $30 for non-members.  Please consider joining.  For tickets and information on becoming a member of the Society please contact: Polly at 410-744-6296 or The Wilderness Bed and Breakfast at 410-744-0590.

Tickets can be purchased by credit card, check or cash, and can be mailed to the purchaser if ordered no later than May 8th.  There will be a $2.50 charge to mail tickets.  Tickets can be purchased at The Wilderness B&B, but you must make arrangements with the owner to pick them up.   Tickets can also be picked up at a will-call table in the 5-Oaks Pool parking lot (directly across from the Catonsville Historical Society building) from 9:30-11:00am on the day of the tour, May 16th.   The table will be closed at 11:00, so please plan accordingly the morning of the tour if you plan to pick up your tickets!  Tickets will also be available at a table located at 1105 Frederick Rd. from 9:45am-11:30am for $30.00.
