Townsend has volunteered at the Stanton Community Center for many years. And in 2015, she helped to establish the Friends of the Stanton Center Youth Programs Fund. This fund finances educational, enrichment and summer camp programs for children and teens that participate in activities at the Stanton Center. If you watch the virtual 2021 Celebration of Philanthropy presentation, cue up to 28:20 where Townsend’s award is shared. Congratulations Townsend – and thank you for your dedication to the Stanton Center, Annapolis youth and the community at large! (And, thank you to our own Paulette Carroll for being part of this video to share how valuable Townsend is to the kids at the Stanton Center)!

Annapolis Recreation and Parks ("Pip" Moyer Recreation Center and Stanton Community Center) follows the weather emergency plans issued by the City of Annapolis.

For example, if the City is closed for snow, then our department and facilities are closed. If there is a delayed opening or an early closing issued by the City, the Stanton Community Center will also follow that schedule. For further information, please visit the Department's Cancellations and Inclement Weather page. Thank you, and be safe!
