  1. Hello Priscilla!
    I am the event coordinator for the What’s Up? Weddings Magazine Fall Bridal Expo. The event is on September 21, from 1-4 pm, at the Crofton Country Club. This is our 5th year at the Country Club and each year it gets bigger, with more and more quality brides and bridal parties. We had over 400 attendees last year from the greater Annapolis and Eastern Shore area. We have just a few tables left and would like to have a great personal trainer in our program. Would you like us to send you an information packet?
