Kent Island MOPS, Mothers of Preschoolers, is for mothers with children from birth thru kindergarten. We meet at Safe Harbor Presbyterian Church on the second Thursday of each month September - May. Our Thursday meetings are from 6:30-9pm and childcare is available at every meeting. In addition, we schedule one kids play day and one mom's night out each month. While many organizations focus on making a better world for our children, at MOPS, we focus on making better children for our world. How? By meeting the needs of their mothers because when we impact a mom, we impact a child and ultimately, impact the world. Better moms make a better world.

Dark Horse Trading Company - 321 Saddler Rd. Grasonville - 410-286-1363
Dark Horse Trading Company is owned by Christopher and Cecelia McDaniel. Cecelia is a long time horse owner and enthusiast originally from Charleston, SC. Her love of horses and the generous support given to her by her husband Christopher has led to the opening Dark Horse Trading Company in Grasonville, Md. Because of her knowledge of saddles,tack and most things horse related and her experience in owning and operating retail stores in the past it seemed a natural progression to open up a tack store after having difficulty locating basic horse items when they first relocated to the area. Once she realized shopping online or traveling 30 or more miles for items such as fly spray or buckets were her only options, they knew it was the right place at the right time to open . Top that with Christopher's 25 years in the IT industry as CIO for several top financial firms they thought it would be a great idea to open both a brick and mortar operation and have an online presence as well. They are both working hard to build their online catalog of saddles, tack and a complete line of equine supplies and supplements. The catalog can be found on their website They also have a Facebook page that has seen its friends base grow very rapidly. Both sites are updated almost daily with new events added to the calendar, videos sent in by our followers, store updates and new arrivals of inventory. Stop by and get to know us! The inventory is growing and if we don't have it we can order it and have it to you in just a few days. We look forward to getting to know you! View our coupon on the Shore$aver
