13th Annual Client Crab Feast 2022
Our 13th Annual Client Appreciation Crab Feast was held on Saturday, October 8, 2022. This year, post-COVID, we went back to our traditional one seating. This gave us the opportunity to host our clients longer, as well as the opportunity for them to mingle and chat with friends.
The weather was bright and sunny with a little Autumn crisp. The added sides to the tent and wonderful heaters kept things warm and cozy underneath. Our 176 clients and their guests feasted on over 20 bushels of amazing Miles River #1 steamed Blue Crabs, which were provided by Cole’s Seafood and Deli here in Easton, MD. They also enjoyed oysters on the half shell, shucked by none other than Bruce Cole himself! And of course, his team kept the crabs and oysters flowing.
We also had our traditional favorite foods, such as Frase’s hand crafted hamburgers and Nathan’s hot dogs, as well as Acme Amish potato salad, Mr. Ron’s Cole Slaw, cheese, Claussen pickles and pies from Fisher’s Pastries at the local Amish Market. We enjoyed an extra special treat this year from The Scottish Highland Creamery Ice Cream with six flavors to choose from.
EWMG had several lovely door prizes to give away for the crowd’s enjoyment. We had a wine and cheese basket from Town & Country Liquors, a pair of tickets to the annual Waterfowl Festival, a set of four Carval Hall crab knives, and a gift card to a local restaurant, Legal Assets.
We had an opportunity to introduce our newest team members, Cindy Wagner, Client Services, and Suzanne Anderson, Event Coordinator and Program Director for our community outreach program, Oysters for the Bay.
We were once again touched by the response we received from our clients for our U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots Collection. The large box was filled with many thoughtful gifts, stuffed animals and books.
It is often discussed amongst our team that we honestly feel we have the very best clients around! Thank you for your continued business and trust in us.

Oyster Social 2022
2022 Oyster Social Recap We held our 11th annual Oyster Social on Thursday, June 16, 2022. Every year we hold a cookout for our growers and volunteers to thank them for their time and hard work to help keep the oyster program thriving. Storms came through town in the late morning but cleared out by early afternoon. Luckily the temperatures held nice and cool with a lovely breeze throughout the evening, making for a very pleasant evening to be outside under the tent. Seventy-six of our growers and volunteers came to join us for local Frase’s Meat Shop hamburgers, Nathan’s hot dogs, baked beans and a variety of other sides from our local Acme Market. Beer and wine from two local businesses Harrison’s and Town and Country Liquors. Cole’s Seafood supplied us with oysters on the half shell, as well as Alan from the shop to expertly shuck the oysters. They were delicious and gone entirely too soon! We’ll have to order more for next year’s event. As always, Smith Island cakes were the dessert offered and we had a few flavor varieties to choose from. Classic, Lemon and Coconut this year. Without our growers and volunteers, we would not be able to do what we do to help the oyster population, and as a result, help to clean the waters of the Chesapeake Bay. They do all of the hard work for our program, from delivering the spat on shell to the care of the cages where the spat have a safe environment to mature in, to the picking up and planting of the oysters in the State Sanctuary provided for us by the DNR. They give their time and energy selflessly and we appreciate it!
2022 Veterans Cookout
This year we held our 2nd Annual Veterans cookout on Flag Day, Tuesday, June 14, 2022. As always, we want to honor our clients who are veterans for their service to the United States. As a special treat Scott invited musical performer and two-time Washington Area Music Award winner, Karen Jonas, to entertain.
She and her partner, Tim Bray, provided everyone with what they refer to as Americana music. A mix of classic rock and folk music with a country vibe. Everything from Willie Nelson to Bob Dylan were on the playlist, along with original songs Karen and Tim had written.
While the weather was warm, there was a nice breeze, and large fan, to keep air moving and our guests comfortable. Everyone seemed to enjoy the local made burgers from Frase’s Meat Shop in Preston, Nathan’s hot dogs and sides from our local Acme market while having the opportunity to talk about their time in service to our country. We finished the meal with fresh homemade brownies supplied by Rusticana Pizza Dover Street here in Easton.
Our own Kim White has twin boys who are both Marines. Her son, Corporal Alexander “Alex” White was in attendance, he had just returned two days before from serving in Okinawa, Japan the last three years. We are honored to be able to show, even in this small way, how much we value and honor those among us who have sacrificed for our country.
11th Annual ShredFest 2022
2022 Shred Fest Recap We had our 11th annual Shred Fest on Wednesday, May 11, 2022. Weather-wise, we could not have asked for a nicer day. Temperatures were in the low 70’s with a mix of sun and clouds and a breeze to keep everyone comfortable. We had over 135 cars come through shredding over 8000 pounds of sensitive documents. This helps prevent identity theft and fraud with the huge added benefit of “Peace of mind” to the people who came by. As usual we had a number of local businesses join us as vendors under the tent behind the Eglseder Wealth Management Group, Inc. main office. Joining us was Charlene Upham of Upham Antiques giving free antique appraisals, as she has done many times in the past, much to our delight. She is incredibly knowledgeable and very welcoming. We also were joined by The Talbot Humane Society, The Senior Center, Avery Hall insurance, BSC Group and Junior Achievement. Joining us for the first time were Full Circle Travel and Eat Sprout, who brought some of their delicious, healthy foods. As an added bonus this year, we had Jamie Petrids of Jamie’s Pit Beef here selling his delicious pit beef and smoked turkey sandwiches. Proceeds of those sales went to another vendor of ours, Partners in Care. As always, we here at Eglseder Wealth Management Group, Inc. are proud to be able to provide this service to the community at large and hope that those in the community are able to connect with local businesses, hopefully finding the resources they need.
