ANNUAL GUIDE TO THE COUNTY Welcome to The Gazette’s annual guide to Montgomery County. Do you need to know your elected officials? Are you wondering who to call if your recycling isn’t picked up? Or maybe you’re just looking for a new church or a sports team for your child. This guide is designed to help you find out about the services and resources that we in Montgomery County can take advantage of throughout the year. We’ve stuffed this guide with information about the county and each of the communities we cover. So if you’re living in Gaithersburg, Bethesda, Silver Spring or Rockville (to name just a few of our community editions), we have the lowdown on who’s who and what’s where. Even in communities where we do not have Gazettes, we’ve tried to include some

information. We’ve included lists of key institutions —from schools to libraries to parks to places of worship — all of which gives us an opportunity to explain how The Gazette works. We print newspapers each week for communities in Montgomery County and cover what’s happening in your county, your town, your city and sometimes your neighborhood. We tell you how your child’s sports team is doing, what schools are planning, where the movies are, how business is faring and about the celebrations important to your friends and neighbors — weddings, anniversaries and accomplishments. It’s easy to get a news item in The Gazette. Send it to us by mail, by email, by telephone, by fax or just drop it by our main office in Gaithersburg.

On page 6 are some key names and numbers to help you. And don’t forget to check our website at www .gazette.net.

NOTE TO READERS Because Montgomery is so large — there are about 1 million of us living here — we might have overlooked something you need. In some cases, because of space constraints, we have omitted some information. If you can’t find certain information or see an error, send us an email at editor@ gazette.net or mail the information to Community Guide, 9030 Comprint Court, Gaithersburg, MD 20877.

A Message from Montgomery County Police Chief J. Thomas Manger: I am extremely proud of the partnership that our Montgomery County Police Department has developed with our community members. Police service continues to evolve, with advances in technology, improved training and better equipment.

We are gratified that crime in general has decreased in our County over the past several years, though be assured that we’ll continue to identify emerging crime trends in our neighborhoods and target appropriate resources towards them. On behalf of all the men and woman who have accepted the challenge of keeping our County safe - Thank you to the residents of Montgomery County for your support. -Chief Tom Manger

TRASH, RECYCLING, ANIMAL CONTROL TRASH

RECYCLING

The Montgomery County Division of Solid Waste Services provides refuse collection services to a portion of the county’s single-family residents, predominantly in the downcounty area. Residents living in the remainder of the county must subscribe for refuse collection services with private collectors or obtain service through their homeowner associations. People living in municipalities must contact their local jurisdiction for more information. For questions about trash, call the county at 240-777-0311, or visit www.montgomerycountymd.gov/solidwaste. To drop off trash, call the Shady Grove Processing Facility & Transfer Station in Derwood at 240-777-6560.

The Montgomery County Division of Solid Waste Services provides recycling collection services to all single-family households in the county, with the exception of households in municipalities where their local jurisdiction or a private collector provides recycling collection services. In the blue recycling bin, residents can recycle glass bottles and jars, aluminum cans and foil products, bi-metal steel/tin cans, aerosol cans that contained non-hazardous or nonautomotive materials, and plastic bottles, containers, jars, tubs, lids, pails, buckets and flower pots. In the blue wheeled recycling cart residents can recycle cardboard boxes, newspaper, magazines, office and copier paper,

telephone books, paperback and hardcover books, shredded paper, milk and juice cartons and frozen food boxes. By using reusable containers or paper lawn bags, residents may recycle grass, leaves, garden trimmings and brush. Or, try backyard composting of leaves and grass, or grasscycling by leaving grass clippings on the lawn after mowing. To recycle scrap metal items such as appliances, bicycles, metal furniture, lawn mowers, filing cabinets and more, call DSWS the business day before your recycling collection day to schedule a special scrap metal recycling collection. Curbside recycling collection is once per week and recyclables must be set out at the curb by 7 a.m. The county also recycles

other items such as computers, televisions and other consumer electronic items, motor oil, antifreeze, tires, textiles, used cooking oil and reusable building supplies. These items can be dropped off in person at the Shady Grove Processing Facility & Transfer Station/ Recycling Center located at 16101/16105 Frederick Road in Derwood.

program, which includes projects to encourage pet vaccinations, to reduce the number of at-large dogs and cats, and to control rabid wildlife. In addition, the county removes dead animals from county roads. The Division of Animal Control and Humane Treatment is part of the Montgomery County Police Department. The Montgomery County Humane Society and Animal Shelter provides rescue, care, adoption, handles lost and found reports, returns lost pets to owners, and provides humane euthanasia of stray, unwanted, or wild animals.

13+ Years Delivering to the Washington Metro Area! V

isitors coming to Lancaster County from the Washington Metro area love to experience the serenity of days gone by. Part of this experience includes the delicious foods of the area, and the handcrafted products of furniture artisans. One place that offers both is the world famous Shady Maple complex.

When Shady Maple Smorgasbord moved into a larger building across the parking lot more than a decade ago, the former restaurant building became home to one of the largest and best furniture stores in the Lancaster area, Country Home Furniture. According to management, “We like to think we’re helping to preserve a little piece of America’s furniture-making history. Our craftsmen are steeped in tradition. They deeply care about their work.” On two floors and 30,000 square feet of selling space in their retail store, you will find eight manufacturers of American-made sofas and recliners, made in North Carolina, Ohio and Mississippi, in addition to over 30 manufacturers of solid wood dining, bedroom, office, occasional and entertainment… and the area’s largest selection of Amish furniture. The wood pieces come from American handcrafters and Amish builders in Ohio, Indiana and right here in Lancaster County. With hundreds of stylish products in traditional, transitional, modern and country looks on the floor, there is something for everyone. “Amish built furniture and quality go hand-in-hand. As far as American handcrafters in the hardwood and upholstery industries, their knack for getting their styles to mesh with today’s buyer is second to none. No one builds better, more stylish furniture than American furniture makers.” Unlike other stores where your only choices of the style or color or wood is what you see, at Country Home Furniture you can have a hand in every facet of your design. That’s the beauty of shopping there. Customers love the flexibility to have a piece made for them by selecting the wood, stain, hardware and fabric. “We sincerely encourage you to experience this for yourself. We love to give our customers an opportunity to engage in the fascinating process of getting exactly what’s wanted in the style, shape, size and color desired. It’s distinctive furniture, made for you, your way. It’s fun, and it’s easy to select what you want.” Why shop now? “We have all kinds of special pricing deals and delivery specials going on right now that we can pass along to our customers.” The retailer ships and delivers to customers’ homes and businesses all over the country.“Our following is not just the local crowds from Lancaster, Berks and Chester. We are delivering furniture several days a week to our customers in Maryland, Virginia and D.C.”

GERMANTOWN Germantown’s roots reach back to the 1800s, when farming was the way of life where housing developments stand today.

GAITHERSBURG The city of Gaithersburg continues to function thanks to the hard work of various people, from its roughly 250 full-time city staff to the countless residents who volunteer to serve the city. The 10-square-mile municipality in the center of Montgomery County can be called a high-tech business hub. It also is the home of Olde Towne, a historic downtown area featuring shops, offices and restaurants that is undergoing a revitalization effort. Before it was Gaithersburg, residents called the area Log Town. In 1802, Benjamin Gaither built a house and several retail establishments at Frederick and Diamond avenues. The town’s name was changed shortly thereafter. The Gaither family also helped to bring the railroad to the city in the 1850s. Gaithersburg’s 2010 population was 59,933, giving it the fourth-highest population in Maryland, according to the U.S. Census

Bureau. The city, which was incorporated in 1878, operates under a council-manager form of municipal government. The city manager is appointed by the five-member city council and serves as a city employee. The manager acts as the city’s chief executive officer and answers to the mayor and council concerning city affairs. The mayor and city council are elected officials who serve staggered four-year terms. The mayor serves as the president of the city council and offers input without voting on the issues. Other municipalities around Gaithersburg include Washington Grove, with a population of 555 at the edge of East Diamond Avenue, and Laytonsville, an incorporated town with a population of about 350 north of Gaithersburg.

The original full name of Washington Grove was the Washington Grove Camp Meeting Association of the District of Columbia and Maryland, reflecting the town’s founding as an outdoor religious summer camp. Washington probably was chosen because the majority of the people who founded the camp were from Washington, D.C., churches, and “grove” was chosen to advertise that meetings would take place in a place filled with trees. Laytonsville was established in 1789 on a tract of land granted to James Brooke. It originally was known as Cracklintown, named after the popular cracklin bread — bacon corn bread — that was baked locally. Laytonsville received its name after the local post office was moved to John Layton’s saddle shop. The town was incorporated as a municipality in 1892.

CLARKSBURG The town’s first settler, William Clarke, saw a crossroads south of Frederick brimming with potential. Working out of his wagon in the 1730s, the peddler from Lancaster County, Pa., set up shop at the wooded intersection of two major indian trails. There he swapped trinkets for furs he could send to Europe’s wealthy markets. As traffic picked up in the area, an entrepreneur named Michael A. Dowden saw his fortune.

He built a 17-room hotel and tavern in 1754 near Clarke’s post. Lt. George Washington and British Gen. Edward Braddock would stay at Dowden’s in 1775 for three days — while soldiers camped on the snowblown hillsides — on their march toward Fort Duquesne. The town takes its name from Clarke’s son, John, who in the early 1790s surveyed the town and laid it out in lots, including “villages” for industries such as tanning and black-

smithing. In 1800, Clarke became the town’s first postmaster. Throughout the years, the “e” was dropped from the family name and the town became Clarksburg. By 1850, Clarksburg was the third-largest city in Montgomery County, behind Rockville and Poolesville. The town was booming with four general stores, two hotels, a school and even its own band, according to local author and historian Susan
