Performance times are as follows:

Monday, March 14--- 5:30pm to 8:30pm
Wednesday March 16--- 5:30pm to 9 pm
Thursday March 17--- 11:30am to 2:30pm and 4:45pm to 9:15pm

We will also continue our tradition of performing at the Piney Run Park and Nature Center Coffeehouse during the St. Patty's shenanigans.  This will take place on Tuesday, March 15 at 7pm. Please call 410-795-6043 for reservations.

As many of you know, our fiddler Ryan is in graduate school on the west coast. We are excited that he will be able to join us for all of our performances this St. Patty's! Come join us and say hi to Ryan before he returns to his pile of books and papers! We look forward to seeing you!

Billy Schroeder Giulianova Groceria

September 9, 2006

Billy has a great cooking class. Give him a call at (410) 876-7425 for more information.

According to Billy’s web site, “A classically trained chef by the U.S. Army, Bill is a licensed meat cutter, sous chef, saucier, banquet chef, executive chef, and is the sole proprietor of Giulianova in downtown Westminster. On top of that, he is proficient on the 12-string guitar. 

“Bill has been a member of the Knights of Columbus since 1975, and is a religious education teacher at St. John's Catholic Church in Westminster. He is a follower of Saint Francis and spent a short time as a Fransican seminary student. His other religions include Baltimore Orioles Baseball, the Beatles, and an unhealthy obsession with the Three Stooges.

“Happily married for 24 years to his wife Jane, Bill is the father of a pair of daughters Clare and Beth. You can hear his voice through the laughter on his commercials on WTTR AM 1470.


He also sponsors the Giulianova Green and Gold Tailgate show, the official pre-game show of McDaniel College football and basketball on WTTR's broadcasts, and he has happily fed more than his fair share of Bair Stadium tailgaters.

“Opened in 1986 by Tony D'Eugenio, Giulianova has been a cornerstone of downtown Westminster's Main Streetcommunity for two decades, serving the town's Italian grocery needs.

“Bill Schroeder bought the store from Tony in the summer of 2003. While the line of ethnic foods has greatly expanded, Bill has never deviated from the principle of selecting the finest quality Italian goods for Giulianova's customers.

“The hoagies are the same as the day the doors opened in 1986, that is to say, they are still the best in town. The lasagnas, sauces, and other products produced in the store are derived from the tradition passed down by Mama D'Eugenio. After handing them down to her son Tony, she was more than happy to share them with Bill.

“Don't bother driving to PhiladelphiaNew York, or evenBaltimore. Giulianova has been, and will be your source for the finest Italian goods, right in your backyard!”

Phil Grout art exhibition ends at Birdie's Cafe Gallery in Westminster Maryland

By Kevin Dayhoff



Phil Grout’s exhibition at Birdie's Cafe Gallery in Westminster ended on January 2, 2011 after a well-received two-month showing.

Grout, an award-winning photojournalist, fine art photographer appeared for the opening of a retrospective show of his work on November 5, 2010 at Birdie's Café 233 East Main Street, Westminster, MD 21157 - http://www.birdiescoffee.com/

The show titled “44/40,” spanned over four decades of Grout’s work, from Vietnam to Africa, Plains Georgia, to Carroll County; and includes almost 70 pieces of work.  (See also: http://www.scribd.com/doc/41131999/Phil-Grout-award-winning-photojournalist-to-appear-at-Birdie%E2%80%99s-Cafe-Gallery-in-Westminster)

An article about Grout’s critically acclaimed show appeared in the Carroll Eagle on November 7, 2010.  The article may be found at: http://www.explorecarroll.com/community/4918/photojournalist-phil-grout-shows-decades-work-birdies-caf/

At that time, Sherri Hosfeld Joseph, the owner of Birdie’s and an artist herself, added, “Phil Grout is one of the greatest photojournalists of his generation.  We are truly blessed as a community that he has chosen our stories to document.  Phil has an amazing ability to find the extraordinary in everyday life - and this show, a retrospective of forty-four years of his work, will leave you awestruck.”

On November 6th, 2010, Grout published the following notes and anecdotes about his show, the art exhibited and his four-decade journey as an artist: “Phil Grout 44/40 in Light.” http://www.scribd.com/doc/46301381/Phil-Grout-art-exhibition-ends-at-Birdie-s-Cafe-Gallery-in-Westminster-Maryland

Mom, Apple Pie and Baseball
One of the sure signs that winter’s icy-cold grip will soon give way to warmer temperatures and spring flowers is the opening of Baltimore Orioles’ spring training.

Although some of my best childhood memories growing up in Carroll County came from listening to Orioles baseball on WTTR radio in Westminster – I’m not a rabid sports fan. In my family that job is held firmly by my wife. The only occasions in which I have ever heard my otherwise mild-mannered quiet wife, the child of generations of pastors, raise her voice, is when she watches sports.

As a matter of fact, my renewed interest in following the Baltimore sports teams, golf or other more esoteric sporting events such as the Le Tour de France, is a result of the entertaining thrill of watching my wife watch sports.

So, as you may now understand, no winter snowbird hiatus in Florida is complete without the obligatory stopover at the Ed Smith Stadium and sports complex in Sarasota.

And you may already be aware, there is something affirming, if not wonderfully distracting about baseball, especially when you put the national pastime into the context of our nation continuing to strike out with a malingering economic malaise that has been prolonged and exacerbated by the faltering economic errors and parade of foul balls emanating from Washington.

Baseball has always been a favorite topic for many history buffs. It has everything to warm the keyboard of a writer including summertime, arcane statistics, intrigue, and colorful characters and events... http://www.thetentacle.com/ShowArticle.cfm?mydocid=4246
