July 4th Events at Leisure World of Maryland
Annual Parade Marches Through Leisure World July 4
Leisure World is set to celebrate Independence Day with its annual parade and picnic. The parade begins at 9:30 a.m. and departs from the Administration Building parking lot. In addition to several Leisure World mutuals and groups taking part in the parade, the Montgomery County Police and Fire Departments, Wheaton Rescue, the U.S. Army Military District of Washington Army Color Guard, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Color Guard, the Browningsville Cornet Band and others are participating. The procession will travel down Leisure World Boulevard to Gleneagles Drive, make a U-turn and proceed toward Clubhouse I. After winding its way around Veterans Park and passing the review stand, the parade line will return to the Administration parking lot.
Ted Borek, a 94-year-old veteran of World War II whose B-17 airplane had to make an emergency landing when two of its four engines were destroyed by enemy fire, delivers the keynote address during the community’s July 4 festivities. The speaking program begins at the review stand soon after the parade concludes. Residents are welcome to bring folding chairs to sit along the route. In the event of rain, the parade will be canceled and the program will move inside to the Clubhouse II auditorium.
July 4: Independence Day Picnic on the Lanai
An afternoon picnic on the Clubhouse I lanai follows the morning parade and program. Tables must be reserved in advance at $1 per person, payable in the Clubhouse I E&R office.
Enjoy Tuesday, July 4, with a picnic on the lanai behind Clubhouse I. Tables must be reserved in advance for either the noon or 3 p.m. seating at $1 per person, payable in the E&R office of Clubhouse I. Perrie LLC, Leisure World’s food service, offers picnic fare for purchase in the Maryland Room for the noon seating. You may also bring your own picnic food. Alcoholic beverages cannot be brought onto the clubhouse premises, which includes the clubhouse and the lanai. You may, however, purchase beverages from the Stein Room. The deadline to sign up is when capacity is reached or by noon on Thursday, June 22. Please note: Because of the expected number of participants, it is not possible to have seating indoors. In case of inclement weather, participants can choose to picnic on the lanai or purchase food and “picnic” at their own homes.
The outdoor swimming pool will be open. Use of the pool is free for residents (with resident ID), and guests must have tickets and be signed in by a resident. Children (ages four through 15) can swim from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. and must be accompanied by an adult in swimwear. Passes may be obtained at the E&R office in either clubhouse.
Make plans now to join your community for the annual Independence Day celebration, and reserve your space for a picnic on the lanai. Buy your tickets at the Education and Recreation Office in Clubhouse I and II. Phone 301-598-1320.
