In April, the first-graders from Daisy Troop 2484, out of West Friendship Elementary School, earned their Orange Learning Petal by studying ways in which they can act responsibly. They underscored the lesson with a trip to Triadelphia Veterinary Clinic in Glenelg, where they met with Dr. Susan Oltman. Oltman discussed the importance of proper diet and exercise for pets, and she showed the girls her surgery room and some X-rays. The troop had a memorable visit, including what student Gracie Hargrove called the best part — getting to see a lizard.

As a young girl, Nell Ligon Johnsen loved to splash in the waters of the Patuxent River in a place called Triadelphia. She leapt from the granite boulders into a swimming hole that her elders once used.She's 68 now, and Triadelphia, once a thriving mill town on the border of Howard and Montgomery counties, is a fragile memory. When she was 16, the deep, dark waters of the Patuxent swallowed up her old playground and the short, troubled history of a town she barely knew.People who live in Montgomery and Prince George's counties now drink the final chapter of Triadelphia's history.

As Jamie Brown shifts his gaze upward and squints at a pair of tall barns backed by a cloudless October sky, the reverence in his voice is nearly as clear as the autumn sun's rays. All around him at Triadelphia Lake View Farm, families are taking advantage of an unusually pretty day to pet farm animals, take hayrides and pick pumpkins. Layers of peeling red paint on the barns distinguish the two oldest structures on the 100-acre Glenelg farm at the end of meandering Triadelphia Road.

For her first venture out into the world, 8-day-old Maggie Zwarich accompanied her parents as they picked out a Christmas tree at Triadelphia Lake View Farm. Her parents, Jennifer and John Zwarich, had moved to Catonsville from Illinois a couple of years ago, but had never bothered with a tree in Maryland because they always returned home for the holidays. This year was different. "This is the first time we'll be here as a family," said John Zwarich as he and his wife headed toward the trees.

Triadelphia Reservoir can be a source of fun on the water, from kayaking to fishing, but those who want to enjoy themselves on land nearby have plenty of opportunities, too. "It's a respite from the humdrum of daily living in the suburbs," said Al Richardson, acting director of the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission, which owns the reservoir. "You can fish, you can picnic, you can hike. There's a host of watershed opportunities in the area," Richardson said. Fishing is common on the reservoir.

Fifth-grader Mike McNeill won Triadelphia Ridge Elementary School's first National Geography Bee on Jan. 7. The critical question was, "Yucca Mountain is located in which state?" said fifth-grade team leader Carol Hahn, who organized the event with Principal Sue Webster. "And he knew Nevada right away, which I thought was a hard question for a 10-year-old." Yucca Mountain is the proposed site of a national repository for radioactive waste. The National Geography Bee, offered to schools across the country by the National Geographic Society, provides rules, practice questions and an opportunity to compete statewide and nationwide.

As Triadelphia Ridge Elementary School art teacher Deborah Bourke drove along Interstate 695 the weekend after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, American flags draped on overpasses and bridges gave her an idea. "I thought I really would like to create something artistic with kids to show a sense of community," she said. Bourke wanted to fashion something indicating loyalty to the United States without using recent television images. So she was inspired to construct an American flag to drape on the school building for the duration of the school year.
