Pool Pooch Party!

The County outdoor pools will wrap up its summer season on Monday, September 5. The pools have provided thousands of residents a place to cool off during the long, sweltering summer days. While the pools may be closing to humans, the Wheaton-Glenmont pool will offer one last summer hurrah for our four-legged friends on September 17 and 18. This special event is held annually at the end of the pool season to give our furry pals an opportunity to rule the pool and enjoy a cool dip. For more information about the event, visit http://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/rectmpl.asp?url=/content/rec/index.asp.

MIRACLE FIELD OPENING DAY … The Department of Recreation hits a home run with the opening of the Washington Nationals Miracle League Field. Maryland’s first ‘Miracle Field,’ a specially designed field which will allow children and young adults with mental and/or physical disabilities to enjoy the opportunity to safely play baseball, was dedicated on Aug. 1 as part of the South Germantown Recreational Park complex. The ‘Washington Nationals Miracle Field’ was significantly funded by the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation and the Annette and Theodore Lerner Family Foundation. Among the hundreds who attended the dedication, ribbon-cutting and first game, were, left to right: Nationals broadcaster Charlie Slowes; Nationals manager Davey Johnson; Judy Lerner; Nationals coach Bo Porter; Mark Lerner; mascot Screech; Maryland Lt. Governor Anthony Brown; County Councilmembers Phil Andrews and Craig Rice; Montgomery Recreation director Gabriel Albornoz; James Leder, Jr., who spearheaded to drive to build the field; County Executive Isiah Leggett; Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmerman; and Mary Bradford of the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission.
