Harbor City Maryland Chapter History
The Harbor City Maryland Chapter (HCMC) was chartered November 11, 2017. The establishment of the chapter was a vision of Renata Roy who invited Sharon Collins to join her to gather a group of ladies to take the journey and establish a second chapter in Prince George’s County.
During the interest group period with the support of Congresswoman Jo-Anne Benson, HCMC had the opportunity to work with Ernest Just Middle school in Largo Maryland to support youth by exposing them to many genres of the Arts.
The chapter offered two set sessions that included the orchestra master class led by Howard University music students, and a tap dance class held by Zuri Foreman, now a professional in the arts in New York.
