Stan and Joe’s Saloon, as well as an Edgewater resident, are helping to load trucks of supplies for those affected by the tornadoes in Oklahoma.
Just two days after the town of Moore, OK, was devastated by a tornado, the Edgewater community is rallying to help. What began as an endeavor by Stan and Joe’s to help one of their own has turned into a grassroots effort throughout the entire community. Former Stan and Joe’s employee Keith Henderson’s brother lives right outside Moore, and just escaped the tornado’s path. After seeing the damage done to the town, Henderson called Stan and Joe’s and asked for help. “He said he was heading to Oklahoma and wanted to fill a truck with supplies, and it turned into this beautiful monstrous thing,” said Stan and Joe’s co-owner Joe McGovern. The local saloon started taking donations around 3 p.m. on Tuesday, and by the time McGovern and his wife …

The local saloon will host a celebration at its Annapolis location on Sunday in honor of its anniversary.
Stan Fletcher and Joe McGovern say the keys to their success with Stan and Joe’s Saloon is a positive energy, good food and a local crowd.
