Over the past six weeks, we have been out and about in the community covering community events such as Kentlands Day, the Kentlands/Lakelands Dog Show, the opening of a new Kentlands restaurant, the 30th anniversary celebration at Meadowside Nature Center, Gaithersburg’s Active Aging Expo, the Main Street Farmer’s Market, early voting in Montgomery County and the new Montgomery County police memorial. We’ve also followed some hot topics including ambulance fees, gas prices, pedestrian perils, a tax protest and Erin Willett’s meteoric ride on NBC’s “The Voice.”

You can find all of these MyMCMedia on Location videos online at MyMcMedia. Check them out and let us know what you think.
