Eps 73 Do You Remember Quackers Productions?

Entertainment, The Arts

Quackers Productions, Inc. was a business operated by Chuck Maslin, we think in the 1990s. Not only did Quackers bring amazing bands to Havre de Grace as fundraisers for museums and other non-profits, but also brought comedians who entertained at MacGregor’s Restaurant.

Karen Green (1953-2020) enjoyed being a stage manager for Quackers Productions. CLICK HERE for an article about Karen. CLICK HERE for her obituary. Karen was a well-respected and loved community leader in Havre de Grace. She touched the hearts of everyone she met. Our youth benefitted tremendously from her leadership with the HdG Parks and Rec. programs. (She is still missed – especially when it’s time for the Halloween Parade!)
