Marilyn J. Praisner Community Recreation Center Celebrates Ten Year Anniversary
Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett will join the East Silver Spring community to celebrate the 10-Year anniversary of the Marilyn J. Praisner Community Recreation Center on Saturday, May 19 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The center is located at 14906 Old Columbia Pike in Burtonsville. The event is free and open to the public. Montgomery County Recreation is hosting the family-oriented event featuring entertainment, children’s activities and interactive workshops and demonstrations for all ages. The celebration will also include the Taste of Burtonsville with food samples offered by local restaurants. A jazz concert featuring The Dean Family will take place from 3 to 6 p.m. Ample free parking is available. Tickets for the food tasting will be available for $1 apiece. The annual event, coordinated by the Marilyn J. Praisner Community Recreation Center Advisory Committee, celebrates 10 years of active programming at the multi-purpose recreational facility. The center, which opened in May 2002 as the Fairland Community Recreation Center, was renamed in 2008 in memory of Councilmember Praisner who represented District 4, and was instrumental in bringing about so many improvements to the East Silver Spring area.
