Critchlow Adkins Postpones Golden Anniversary Celebration

Out of an abundance of caution, Critchlow Adkins Children’s Centers (CACC) has decided to postpone its 50th Anniversary Celebration event. The evening, which was originally scheduled for September 30, 2021, has now been moved to April 28, 2022, and will still be held at The Oaks Waterfront Inn in Royal Oak.

Event organizers had been watching the COVID numbers carefully as the celebration drew closer and they decided that a postponement would be the best way to ensure the safety of CACC’s supporters and the community at large.

Executive Director Cristy Morrell said, “At Critchlow Adkins, the health and well-being of this wonderful community has been our top priority for 50 years. As an essential service in Talbot County, we know that we cannot shut down, so we remain flexible at all times in order to adapt to and overcome any obstacles we may face.” She added, “While we had hoped to celebrate this wonderful occasion this fall, by postponing, we feel that this decision truly honors the legacy of our founders. It puts into action those principles upon which our organization was founded.”

Critchlow Adkins will be reaching out to ticket holders in the very near future with information about the options that are available to them.

Those who are still looking for a way to celebrate and support Critchlow Adkins Children’s Centers this month can attend Conor’s Project Skeet Shoot on September 26th at the Talbot Rod and Gun Club. In addition to the annual Skeet Shoot Tournament – organized and hosted by Rennie Gay in honor of his grandson, Conor Nashold, who passed away in 2017 – a crab feast has been added to the festivities this year. The crab feast begins at 3 pm and features crabs, drinks, and desserts. Tickets are $40 per adult, and children under the age of 12 eat free. All proceeds from the event support CACC’s swim lessons and educational enrichment programs. Visit to register for the tournament or purchase tickets to the crab feast.

Critchlow Adkins Children’s Centers is a local, non-profit organization whose mission is to provide quality, financially accessible childcare for children and their families in a nurturing, diverse, and enriching environment. CACC’s programming includes year-round educationally based preschool, pre-K – 5th grade before- and after-school care, and summer camps.

CACC is able to offer tuition assistance to many families because of the generosity and financial support of individuals, businesses and foundations in Talbot County. To learn more about CACC, enroll your child in a program, or make a donation, please call 410.822.8061 or visit
