City of Annapolis Announces “Safe Spring Break”

Mayor’s Office to Host Events at Pip Moyer

Annapolis, MD (April 4, 2019) – The City of Annapolis Mayor’s office will host the first “Safe Spring Break” event at “Pip” Moyer Recreation Center during Anne Arundel County Public Schools’ Spring Break 2019: April 18, 19 and 20. The initiative will provide a safe space for children during the break from school, but will also provide enriching activities.

“We recognize that a lot of parents work and don’t have paid leave, or don’t have the ability to afford day care when school is out,” said Mayor Gavin Buckley. “We have a great space at Pip Moyer and the resources to provide a safe space for families in our community. I urge parents and caregivers to sign up for one, two or all three days.”

Safe Spring Break is free and includes lunch and refreshments.

 On Thursday and Friday, April 18 and 19, there will be a free sports clinic from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. At the event, open to all students from the Annapolis cluster, youth will also learn about Substance Misuse Prevention programming and Conflict Resolution skills.

Contact Coach Joe McEachern at for more information on the sports clinic.

On Saturday, April 20, the Mayor’s Office, in collaboration with AAU33 Maryland, will host the first “Coach Ed Wilson Memorial Charity Invitational and STEM Pop-Up” powered by BDPA Annapolis. Family members and children are invited to engage IT professionals for these interactive STEM workshops. For more information on the Coach Ed Wilson Memorial Charity Invitational, contact
