Stevens Park Summer Recreation Program Cancelled for 2020: At the June 1st Commissioner's Meeting, the Commissioners voted to cancel the Stevens Park Summer Recreation Program this year. This was not an easy decision to make as the Commissioners understand how important and cherished this program is for the community, but based on the outlook for permitting large group activities by July and in the interest of health and safety for our residents and staff they felt this was the right decision to make. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Today would have been our 10th annual SpringFest. We couldn't let the day go by without sharing (in no particular order) photos from the past 10 years. I also want to thank all of the people who have made SpringFest possible:
Our SpringFest Committee, past and present, you've been a pleasure to work with.
The Town Commissioners who embraced this event & let us run with it.
Our Parks & Streets Dept. - who don't see any other park besides Whalen Commons for weeks & would probably like to tell me to hit the street - you do an amazing job.
Our Sponsors, without your generous support this event would not happen.
Our Volunteers - It takes a village and you come through year after year.
Our Brewers - Thank you for taking a chance on our little town and always bringing your best.
Our Food Truck & Artisan Vendors - thank you for joining us year after year, and....
YOU - each and every one of you who come out, bring your family and friends and spend the day on the Commons - Your smiles say it all.
Stay safe and we'll see you in 2021!

5/8/20: The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) is providing the Town of Poolesville with an update regarding upcoming weekend closures on the MD 28 bridge.

MDOT SHA is working with the contractor to safely and efficiently complete the MD 28 bridge replacement project. The remaining work includes cleaning the bridge, removing old paint with blasting, prepping the area for upcoming painting (tarps, containment, etc.), painting the bridge (three layers) for protection and repairing portions of the upper steel. Some of the equipment needed for this work must be positioned on the roadway given the width of the bridge. Due to safety concerns and the large equipment being used, a total bridge closure is necessary which can only be done on weekends.

MDOT SHA will close the MD 28 bridge every weekend from 10 pm Friday to 5 am Monday from now until September, except for holiday weekends. The closure and detour provide motorists especially commuters use of both directions of the bridge without delay on weekdays while also giving the contractor a closed road to perform the work.

MDOT SHA understands the inconvenience the extended weekend closures will cause you and other residents and businesses in the area; however, the safety of those traveling on the bridge and those working on the bridge is the primary consideration in our decision. MDOT SHA appreciates your patience and understanding as we replace a poorly rated bridge with a new structure that will safely serve motorists for many years to come.

5/7/20: The Poolesville parks will remain closed until Monday May 18. While we are eager to reopen the parks, our decision is based on protecting the public's health, safety, and welfare. If there is any significant increase in the hospitalization rates in the State of Maryland, it is possible the reopening of the Town parks could be delayed. When the parks are opened on May 18, the parking lots will be available for use and activities such as the tennis courts, baseball fields, dog park, and fishing will be permitted. The play equipment, skate park, swings, soccer fields, and basketball courts will not be available for use. We will make a determination the week of May 18th as to when the other activities will be available for use. No rental of pavilions will be permitted until the Governor permits group activities. There will be no cleaning of any of the park equipment. Any use of the park amenities is at your own risk. The restrooms will remain closed. There is no timeline on when the restrooms will be opened. Social distancing and groups of no more than 10 is still in effect and must be observed.

Today is National Arbor Day!!

The first Arbor Day was in 1872 and each year since it has been celebrated. At the April 20 Town Commission meeting, President of the Commission, Kerri Cook, proclaimed April 24, 2020 as Arbor Day in Poolesville. Annually, Poolesville participates in tree plantings with the schools. Due to COVID-19, the Town Commission has agreed that the annual tree plantings with the schools will take place in the fall, provided it is safe to do so. Poolesville is proud to be an environmentally sustainable community and we look forward to our fall tree planting. Happy Arbor Day!

I am donating a laundry bag filled with women’s size 10 shoes of all kinds. Free. My friend’s sister asked me if I wanted them. I said sure, I ended up deciding against adding more stuff, while I’m trying to downsize to prepare for a baby. Laundry bag and shoes are yours to do what with you wish. First serious commenter gets them. I don’t have pics. Will bring them tomm and drop off wherever. Handles will be disinfected. Nothing else was touched. I didn’t even look through them. ❤️

The tricky thing about Spring tree care is that so many things need attention at once. Spring remains the best time to check your property for damage that may have occurred over the harsh winter months. Such as Broken or hanging tree limbs! Tree branches get damaged by cold, snow and wind. Dead, damaged and diseased branches need to be removed as soon as possible to prevent insect and decay organisms from entering the tree. Usually the best time to trim or prune a tree is early Spring, just before the buds open. Proper care prevents headaches and extra costs in the future, and can help you to avoid expensive damage to your property throughout the year. Lee's Tree Service can help, call today for a FREE estimate! (301)208-8235
