Cindy Cartwright is one of many residents trying to save the Town Creek Pool.

By Guy Leonard
Staff Writer

For about 50 years the Town Creek Pool in the Town Creek community has pro-
vided summer fun and acted as a community gathering point; since 2017 it’s been
closed.
What community activists call “catastrophic leakage of water from under-
ground… pipes” made the shutdown mandatory and what’s more complete replace-
ment of the pipes is required.
“The expense is greater than the available funds,” according to a newsletter sent
out to the community from the Town Creek Recreation Inc. group.
Cyndy Cartwright, one of the leaders of the effort, said membership had dwindled
in recent years, residents could buy a share in the community pool for $300 which
gave them a discount on summer access fees.
Those without a shareholder stake though, had to pay between $395 and $495 just
for access to the pool during summer months.
“We’re considering reworking our business model,” Cartwright said, adding that
the pool costs about $35,000 a year to operate.
She estimated it would take 125 to 150 memberships to keep the pool running.
The recreation group is on a fundraising drive to renovate and repair the pool.
Their report states that they need $150,000 to cap off the old pipes and have new
PVC pipes installed to act as water returns on the sides of the pool.
“They were pot metal,” Cartwright said. “They started leaking at the end of 2016.”
The concrete deck would be removed to access the old pipes, the group stated in
their report, and would be replaced with new concrete once the new pipes had been
installed.
The pool’s surface would also receive new plaster, tiles and paint.
The equipment in the pump house would also have to be replaced to conform with
facilities codes, the report stated.
While the renovation would be expensive, a new pool – according to some esti-
mates – would be upwards of $1 million.
The community pool has hosted many gatherings over the years, including pro-
viding a venue for Town Creek Elementary School’s swim activities for the 5th grade
class.
It has also been the home of the Town Creek Sharks swim team and hundreds of
swim meets, the report stated.
The group has planned a fundraiser for May 26 at the pool parking lot from 4p.m.
to 7:30p.m.

These vacations allow them a respite from the routine of a hospital and can help

The retreats for veterans and their families take place at Camp Maria in Leonard-

The retreats last a weekend and include golf carts for transportation, kayaks, fly

Horse back riding lessons are also available.
All accommodations are free to veterans and their families staying there.

Interfaith Health
Alliance Offers Youth
Mentoring Programs
 The Interfaith Health Alliance (IHA), a partnership between the St.
Mary’s County Health Department and the Interfaith Council of St. Mary’s
County, is seeking local faith-based organizations to implement youth men-
toring programs in the community.
“We see the Interfaith Health Alliance as a perfect opportunity to bring
the faith perspective and approach to helping cultivate a generation of
young people who are morally fortified to live healthy, productive lives free
from the bonds of illicit drug-use” said Michael Martines, President of the
Interfaith Council. “An investment of time mentoring young people pays
future dividends of peace and prosperity.”
The IHA hopes to support local faith-based organizations in building
new or expanding existing youth mentoring programs within their faith
groups. Mentoring youth as they navigate the challenges of childhood and
teen years can help build resiliency, mental well-being, and important life
skills. Mentoring can also be a key factor in preventing youth drug misuse
and addiction.
“As our community faces the ongoing opioid crisis, we recognize that
many faith leaders serve a critical role in guiding their congregants through
personal and family struggles,” stated Dr. Meena Brewster, St. Mary’s
County Health Officer. “We want to support our faith leaders with resourc-
es that are effective in preventing youth drug use.”
Resources and technical assistance with implementing youth mentoring
programs are available, as funding allows, to interested faith-based organi-
zations. Grant funding to support this initiative was provided by the Rotary
Club of Lexington Park.

Crab Festival Celebrates Iconic


Crustacean
By Guy Leonard
Staff Writer
St. Mary’s County celebrates all kinds of things, but perhaps what they
love celebrating – and eating – the most is the blue crab.
The Chesapeake Bay’s premier crustacean has been a favorite for
centuries, and though the last few decades have seen a decline in pop-
ulation from historic highs, preservation efforts have ensured that events
like the St. Mary’s County Crab Festival continue to draw hundreds to the
county fair grounds each year.
The festival opens June 9 from 10a.m. to 7p.m. and visitors can feast on
steamed, spicy hard crabs all day.
But the festival celebrates the culinary culture that surrounds the hard
crab, to include all kinds of recipes such as soups, dips and one of the
most refined dishes. the crab cake.
There will be plenty of other seafood dishes on hand for sampling and
crab-themed crafts will be available for purchase as well.
Live music, snow cones and ice cream help to round out the festive oc-
casion, including a car show for which visitors can register their own cars.
One of the big events is a crab picking contest against the clock; the
top three crab pickers will receive cash prizes and eat what they pick.
The crab festival is also open to pets.
Picnic tables set up at the fairgrounds in Leonardtown allow seating for
the hundreds of visitors to feast on blue crab meat.
The festival is all about having a good time but it is also for a good
cause; 100 percent of the proceeds go to the local Lions Club for charity
for their service programs including providing vision screening and eye
glasses for the needy.
The event is sponsored by the Leonardtown Lions Club. To contact the
Lions Club call 240-577-0029.
