Local pools will be opening their doors next weekend, the first weekend of the summer. Crofton Country Club will open its pool's doors at 11 a.m. for its members. A lot has been happening at the club pool this winter and the season is sure to be a big hit with everyone.
Let's start hoping for great weather next weekend. And whatever you do, have fun and be safe.
Spring is a good time to clean out the attic, garage or basement. And once you've finished, you can take all those treasures you no longer want to keep around to the Crofton Goodwill Donation Center in the parking lot of the Crofton Shopping Center on Route 3. The truck is there from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the second Saturday of each month through December. Goodwill accepts clothing and household goods. The next pickup day is June 11.
Summer day camp for school age children will be available at Crofton Woods Elementary School from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. starting June 22.
Activities will include cooking, crafts, field trips, soccer and basketball.
