LIBERTYTOWN RECREATION COUNCIL
In August of 1989 the Libertytown Recreation
Council (LRC) was formed by a group of citizens concerned that there
were not enough sports programs in the immediate area. Officers were
elected and sports programs were initiated. In October 1989 the LRC
joined The Frederick Country Parks and Recreation Association of Recreation
Councils. The association meets 3 times a year and gets guidance and
coordination from the Frederick Country Parks and Recreation.
Since our beginnings, the LRC has offered sanctioned programs such
as Cal Ripken and Babe Ruth baseball and has joined some local programs
in soccer and basketball to enhance competition. The LRC meets on
the first Thursday of every month in the upstairs of the St. Peters
Catholic Church Thrift Shop at 12060 Main Street, Libertytown (parking
in rear off of North Street). The LRC is a small program compared
to some, but never turns down any child based on sports ability. All
are welcome here and we hope to see your child soon!
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT FROM LRC
It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I must inform you of
the unexpected passing on October 16th, 2013 of Jim Stockman, a
long-time LRC officer, athletic director, coach, and my own good
friend. Jim was a tremendous individual who had been involved with the
LRC for nearly 25 years and whose tireless contributions and efforts
were instrumental in promoting a safe, fair, and enjoyable environment
for the young athletes of our community.
We will miss him.
