EASTON — Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot and his wife Anne Maher strolled Harrison street on the first day of the 49th annual Waterfowl Festival, Friday, Nov. 8.

They visited with artist Nancy Tankersley and admired her painting “Podgin’ for Oysters,” the 2019 Featured Art Piece of the Festival.

Franchot and Maher walked around the Waterfowl Festival headquarters and made a detour to the Carvers’ Room at the Prager Auditorium. He bumped into people he’s met before at the Festival and chatted with them as he made his way around the room.

Before heading back, they warmed up with a cup of cream of crab soup at Shore Boys on the sunny, but brisk, day.
