CLARKSBURG, Md. — It’s time to get Uplifted, a time to take our minds off the negativity all around us and focus on the positive – the stories that UPLIFT us! Today's story comes to us from our own Howard Bernstein who let us know about Anna Mae, a sweet woman who has been greeting, smiling, and laughing with locals at the Clarksburg Liberty Gas Station, also known as Whipp's Garage, for the past 51 years. A community staple, Anna Mae retired on January 25.
The Clarksburg community sent her off right. They planned a Drive-By Honk and Wave car parade for Anna Mae on her last day at work on Monday. They have also set up a GoFundMe to give her a nice tip after her final shift.
Enjoy your retirement, Anna Mae. The people of Clarksburg want you to know that they love you.
