A Holiday Decorated Belmont Manor

The ballroom
 On Dec 13, I gave a talk: "A Paranormal Casebook of Maryland" - at the Belmont Manor,  Elkridge, Maryland and it was all decked out for the holidays. Here are a couple of pictures of the decorations and a pic of me with Tyler, the handsome guy who works at the mansion. He's an added inspiration to drive all that way on a weeknight. :)
    If you haven't been there, it's a beautiful place to visit, and the Inspired Ghost-Tracking Group has a lot of talks coming up! 
WHAT YOU'LL FIND - There are Saturday afternoon English tea events held every other weekend from January through March. There are also paranormal lectures given by me (Rob) and other members of  the Inspired Ghost Tracking team. It hosts wedding receptions, rehearsals dinners, business meetings, holiday parties, anniversary parties, retirement parties, quinceaneras, bat/bar mitzvahs, retreats and bridal showers.

OUR TALK- On Dec. 13, during the talk, I  was joined by Margaret and Greg, and we discussed several of their most unusual Maryland investigations such as the Case of the Dismembered Ghost, the “Alleyway” ghost, and others. People learned why ghosts stay behind and how the IGT team works with them to bring them solutions and peace.

ABOUT THE MANOR- Belmont was built in 1738, home to Caleb and Priscilla
Dorsey of Elkridge. The Manor House was passed through generations of Dorseys, Hansons and Bruce families.  The Howard County Recreation and Parks purchased the property in 2012. The Manor was restored and sits on 68 acres of rolling hills which includes The Cottage House, The Carriage House, The Caretaker's house,  a barn, an aqua garden, trails, a cemetery and extensive gardens. The property is also home to The Howard County Conservancy.


Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
