I like the idea of swimming some laps at the Water Park, then perhaps watching the kids have fun in the park for the rest of the day!

Hello Roy - quickly glancing at your city of Gaithersburg Maryland Labor Day 2020 announcement has me thinking of miniature golf.  I can't say I remember the last time I played. 

I don't know(but think not) if such activity is a part of the Los Angeles area agenda this weekend but with temps in the 100 plus range in many areas, I imagine that's not going to be a choice anyway.    Enjoy the holiday.

Roy, nice to know what is open, and what is not for the City of Gaithersburg.

I believe you and the Chef are staying close to home this weekend. We are too. It just makes sense. We are fortunate to enjoy being at home - it sure helps. D

• Stay at least six feet from others.
• Avoid crowded areas.
• Wear a mask to protect yourself and others.
• Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
• Bring hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol to use if soap and water are not available.

I see a few signs that we are trying to open more things up at a measured pace here in Sacramento.

Roy, It's good that many places will be open, as long as keeping social distancing in mind at all times...
