The Frederick County Senior Recreation Council follows the guidelines of Frederick County Public Schools when weather is bad. If schools are closed or delayed our activities are cancelled. Information is provided on television (FCPS- Channel 18 and other local stations) and radio, and on the Frederick County Public Schools website.
On Friday, December 2, 2022 the Senior Recreation Council held our annual Holiday Luncheon at the Crestwood Village Clubhouse in Frederick. One hundred SRC members attended. We were entertained by a wonderful chorus who sang many holiday favorites, and enjoyed a holiday trivia game which was fun and challenging for all. But the most enjoyable part was getting together with friends and enjoying the many delicious dishes and desserts. (Pictures can be viewed in the photo gallery listed under More.)
