The Poketown Gym invites Pokemon Trading Card Game players to take part in the Mauville Gym League Challenge!
Players will play in an age-separated, Swiss-rounds tournament (everyone plays the whole time!) using their own Standard Format 60-card decks. You should already know how to play using the official rules. Don't know how to play? Visit our League Play meetings, (held most Sundays from 1:45-4:45 PM in the Anthony M. Natelli Community Room), and we can teach you!
This is a free event, but players who wish to participate in this
Westview Promenade, Buckeystown Pike at Crestwood Blvd. in Frederick
FCPL teams up with Westview Promenade to celebrate our new Summer Reading program for all ages with a free concert by The Reagan Years. Bring your family and lawn chairs and enjoy this band of seasoned musicians as they recreate the sounds of the 1980s taking the audience back to when Ronald Reagan was president, MTV first aired, CDs emerged, acid washed jeans were cool, and alternative music was called New Wave.
In January, the Carrollton Manor Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution celebrated the publication of The Forgotten: The Middletown African Methodist Episcopal Cemetery. The result of 17 months of research, this volume provides source material on the individuals located in a largely undocumented burial ground. The Forgotten can be used for genealogy research, to track a communitys history, and to develop a deeper understanding of a segment of Frederick Countys African-American population.
Children and their parents experience a live musical collaboration between the library reader and a Frederick Symphony Orchestra musician during this 30 minute storytime! The musician will play short selections, talk a little about their instrument, answer questions, and, after the stories are read aloud, audience members can take a closer peek at the instrument! This program is best appreciated by children ages 2-6 and their caregivers, but is open to all ages.
Get up close and personal with animals and learn about being a Park Naturalist. Every Hero has a Story, and your local Park Naturalist has plenty to share about plants and animals. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult as requested by the park.
