Steadfast sets sail in the 2022-23 Sailing Through the Winter Solstice!


Steadfast has been given the very great honor to have a boat in the 2022-23 Sailing Through The Winter Solstice Event in Downtown Frederick. Each year, Sailing Through The Winter Solstice begins in November. A number of boats, transformed through the creative minds of many Frederick community organizations, set sail on the Creek. The boats are anchored in Carroll Creek, between Market Street and Carroll Street.

Steadfast’s boat, the Ally Cat, was the brain-child of our dedicated volunteers: Cheryl Pelino and Ron and Dorie Hemby. Steadfast was generously sponsored by Embrace Home Loans of Frederick.

It’s not just fun, it’s for a purpose. Each $1 vote raises much needed funding for Steadfast. Voting runs through the 1st Saturday in February 2023.

Thank you so much for your support! Please Vote for the Ally Cat!
