We joined the Fort Detrick Alliance in December 2019, just prior to moving our corporate office from Ijamsville to Frederick. We look forward to contributing to the success of the Alliance and the mission of Fort Detrick in sustaining our vital national interests. Joining the Alliance will give us an additional opportunity to contribute to the good of the local community. We perform regular outreach in the greater Frederick Community. Two examples of that include our regular volunteer efforts at the Frederick Rescue Mission and most recently, Hometown Heroes donations during the novel coronavirus pandemic. These efforts are led by Edgewater’s Corporate Operations Director, Ms. Cherie Wigfield, who will be joining the marketing and events committees. We just moved into our new office in January of this year located at 5280 Corporate Drive, ST C130, Frederick, MD 21703
