Nancy H. Dacek North Potomac Community Recreation Center Opens in North Potomac
Hundreds of residents joined County Executive Ike Leggett, County Council members and other officials to celebrate the ribbon cutting for the new Nancy H. Dacek North Potomac Community Recreation Center located at 13850 Travilah Road. The ceremony took place on Saturday, October 22.
For the past several months the Recreation Department has worked with the community to schedule programs and activities that will include out-of-school youth activities, sports leagues, weight room memberships, special events and community activities.
The building has a full-sized gymnasium, auxiliary gym, rock climbing wall, exercise and weight room, social hall, commercial kitchen, multi-use community room, arts/kiln room, game room, and meeting rooms. This is the ninth recreation facility built or renovated by our Department of General Services in the past nine years.
The facility is named in honor of the late Nancy H. Dacek who served for 12 years as a member of the County Council from 1990 until 2002. Following her service to the Council she served for more than a decade on the Montgomery County Board of Elections appointed by Governors Bob Ehrlich and Martin O’Malley. Special remarks were made by the late Nancy Dacek’s husband Raymond Dacek and their daughter Kim Dacek Barnes.
The center will also include the North Potomac Senior Center, a full-service senior center with a wide-range of programs and services for adults 55 and older.
A video summing up the ceremonies was produced by County Cable Montgomery (CCM), the County’s cable television station.
