Happy Thursday Laurel! Here’s everything you need to know about what’s happening locally today.

First, today’s weather forecast:

Warmer with a parasitic shower. High: 69 Low: 43.

Here are Laurel’s top three stories today:

  1. According to Patch reporter Kristin Danley-Greiner, in celebration of the 200th anniversary of Harriet Tubman’s birth, Governor Larry Hogan has proclaimed 2022 “the year of Harriet Tubman”. Many activities are offered to celebrate Tubman, who, after breaking free from slavery at age 27, became a conductor on the Maryland Underground Railroad. She helped hundreds of other slaves flee the South to freedom, earning her the nickname “Moses of her people”.(Room)
  2. If you were hoping to adopt a pet, look no further than these Laurel area animal shelters. Patch has worked with Petfinder to compile the list of pets available for adoption near you this week. Whether you’re looking for cuddles or companionship, one of these animals could be the perfect fit for your family. (Laurel patch)
  3. Governor Larry Hogan recently announced that the Maryland Department of Health (MDH) has donated 50 Astral portable ventilators to treat patients at frontline hospitals in Ukraine. The ventilators will support the treatment of children and adults who were injured during the Russian invasion of Ukraine. “The State of Maryland continues to stand in solidarity with President Zelensky and the people of Ukraine,” Governor Hogan said. “We are proud to make this donation to help save lives and help Ukrainians in the fight against Russian aggression.” (Maryland.gov)
