American Diabetes Association Alert Day

Diabetes Alert Day is a one-day “wake-up call” that focuses on the seriousness of diabetes and the importance of understanding your risk. We encourage you to find out if you – or someone you love – is at risk for type 2 diabetes. Please stop by the lobby from 10am-1pm and find out if you are at risk for type 2 diabetes. We also will be handing out information about the program that the Y is offering to prevent diabetes.

Did You Know?

  • Diabetes affects about 30.3 million Americans or about 9.4 percent of the U.S. population.
  • Nearly 1 in 4 adults living with diabetes, or 7.2 million Americans, are unaware that they have the disease.

  • Nine out of 10 adults with prediabetes don’t know they have it.

Frederick Classical Ensemble Presents The Second Shepherds Play

This comedy with a Christmas message is sure to delight audiences of all ages with the hilarious antics of its quirky characters, as well as its Christmas songs. Be prepared to join a sing-along at the end of the play.

On Christmas Eve, three shepherds—Coll, Gyb, and Daw—are herding their flock on their organic sheep farm commune when Mak, who has a reputation for stealing sheep, visits them.

Mak succeeds in filching a ram, which he swiftly delivers to his wife, Gill, who is furious with Mak for exposing both of them to the risk of legal consequences. To protect their secret—and their Christmas dinner—Gill and Mak wrap the sheep in swaddling clothes and hide it in their cradle. 

As the three shepherds solve the crime and retrieve their material possession, they learn an important spiritual lesson—right before they witness the miracle of Christmas first-hand. 

Admission: Donations (half of which will benefit the YMCA of Frederick County)
