Milburn Orchards is at its most beautiful in the fall, which is just one reason why thousands of people make it a destination during the golden months of September, October, and November. For this issue of Cecil County Life, we talked to Melinda Milburn Palmeri, one of the owners of this family business that traces its roots to 1902 and has been recognized as a Cecil County Business of the Year as well as an inductee into the Cecil County Business Hall of Fame. Also in this issue: Since 2002, Mitchell and Linda Dickinson have owned the Painted Sky Alpaca Farm in Earleville. We visited to learn more about the business of alpacas. We also talked to members of the Cecil County Bird Club about their efforts to keep an eye on migrating hawks, and to protect and advocate for birds in a variety of ways. We profile artist Sue Eyet, who takes bits of the past and gives them new life. We also talk to Kimberly and John Rodgers, who published their debut novel, “Mogul,” earlier this year. We explore the interesting history of St. Mary Anne's Church. The church in North East has roots in the 1700s, but is still a vibrant part of the community today. In the photo essay, “Where in North East, Charlestown, and Perryville?” readers are asked to test how well they know this area of Cecil County. We enjoy the opportunity to meet and talk with the people who help make Cecil County such a wonderful place to live and work
