    Stained Glass Windows

    I was passing by a church I have passed by a thousand times. I had promised myself that one day I would stop and take a look inside, from the outside it looks like it had great stained glass windows.
    Today I did.

    Church staff was very very nice and were delighted to show me the church. I was surprised that this church has been around over a hundred years. The stained glass, which had attracted me at first, was apparently done in the 1920's.

    Thank you to the staff of Grace United Methodist for their warmth and kindness in showing me their beautiful church.

    Seneca Creek State Park

    Up in an area of Montgomery County where there used to be mills and quarries,,,Seneca Creek state park is a nice little oasis away from the hustle and bustle. The park centers on man-made Clopper Lake.

    In summer this is a fun place to go kayaking. Rentals are available and quite cheap. Make sure to wear protection from the sun because before you realize it you will have been out there for several hours.

    There are some good hiking trails, picnic facilities and good places for birdwatching.

    County Agricultural Fair

    by GentleSpirit Updated May 30, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    held at the Montgomery County fairgrounds (this years dates are Aug 10-18)

    There's a little of everything. They do have of all the animals and you can talk to the people and learn a great deal about a fast disappearing lifestyle (farming). the 4-H Club co-sponsors it
    I learned something, for example I had never in my life thought there were so many varieties of chickens etc.

    for those less inclined to walking thru the stalls to see the animals you can head down right to the end section where there are rides. some of them are pretty good

    along the little street there leading to the rides you will find a number of small booths which include volunteer organizations, you can register to vote. Homemade jams and jellies are very good.

    parking- you can park at Lakeforest Mall and take the shuttle from there, it will be far cheaper and save you lots of time.

    Gaithersburg Historical Association

    by rafgys Written Oct 31, 2006

    I would say there's nothing to do in Gaithersburg, but if you happen to be around Rockville... this town has this interesting museum; tells you some good stuff about the railroading business in the early 1900's.

    It's open only Thu and Sat from 10 AM till 2 PM, and it's free.
