Mom & Dad, sign up for the Community Vegetable Garden at Wiles Branch Park thru the end of April. A small plot will be assigned to grow your own vegetables for the season. This is a great opportunity for your child to explore, discover, and learn about plant life and the natural world. Plots are limited and are based on a first come first serve basis and are free to the community.
If you are interested in a 10 X 10 plot for the spring planting season please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be put on the list.
Practice sessions and clinics will be held every Saturday through the months of February and March at both the Middletown Town Hall and the C Burr Artz Library in Frederick. Locations will alternate every other Saturday.
So What is the Knuckler Program All About?
While the Frederick County Knucklers, a Middletown Rec Council program, is based out of Middletown, Maryland where our marble shooting rings are located, the program reaches out to boys and girls ages 7 to 14 throughout Frederick County including Frederick City. During the year, we reach out to over 600 kids with clinics held at scouting, educational and other activities to introduce the fun of both playing and collecting marbles. At those clinics, we show kids how to play the game of Ringer on portable marble rings and then send them home with a free bag of marbles along with an invitation to pursue the sport of competitive marbles as a member of the Frederick County Knucklers.

The Skateboard Spot design concept is being completed and soon to come from Pillar Designs.
To reach out to residents, organizations, and businesses in Middletown and surrounding towns, in aiding our fundraising campaign for the Middletown Skateboard Spot.
To provide a safe place to skate in Middletown, so skateboarders can Ollie, Lipslide, and Kickflip to their heart’s content closer to home. Skateboarding is a popular, healthy form of recreation for our youth. In providing the Skateboard Spot for our youth, we believe we will give them a positive diversion, raise self esteem, and keep them off the streets where skateboarding is illegal. We hope the Skateboard Spot Campaign effort will be an inspiration to any person or group in Middletown for creating other needed recreational sites for our youth, through community support.
A contribution from everyone is sure to get the project done! Make checks payable to MRC Skateboard Spot Fund. Mail donations to MRC C/O Skate Park, PO Box 234 Middletown, MD 21769.
