Hundreds of Residents Enjoy Germantown Community Day
If you weren’t at Gunners Lake Local Park last Saturday afternoon, you missed something. Something that Germantown hasn’t seen a quite a while. You missed out on civic pride and community. It was glorious, and not just the weather. It was an event which will hopefully plant a seed, in the minds of those who organized it and the many who attended.
It wasn’t a black-tie gala. It wasn’t a sporting event. It wasn’t a special invite-only happening. It was the Germantown Community Day. It was our community coming together to celebrate our community — and it was glorious.
The event was produced by the members of the ACE Project at Seneca Valley High School, under the supervision of Ali Hashemzadeh, or Coach Ali, with help from official sponsors the Healthcare Initiative Foundation, The Maryland SoccerPlex, and Maryland Physicians Care.
The day was filled with fun and fellowship, from the tunes pumped by the deejay to the smiles on the kid's faces as they played in the many inflatables from Backyard Inflatables. Attendees enjoyed performances by the Seneca Valley High School marching band and the talented kids from the Roberto Clemente Middle School Rock Band program which played a concert in the park as part of the festivities.
The event featured local organizations and businesses and allowed Germantown residents to come out and spend some time in fellowship under a beautiful blue sky, and learn about the many benefits available to our community and the great folks who live here.
