Welcome to the Carroll Manor Recreation Council website! CMRC is a member of the Frederick County, Maryland Association of Recreation Councils and serves the communities of Adamstown, Point of Rocks, Ballenger Creek, Buckeystown, and Tuscarora. CMRC offers youth programs for baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, lacrosse, soccer, softball, and wrestling. For those of you currently part of the CMRC community, our website serves as your primary source for all things CMRC-related.
CMRC President Randy Cole thanks Don and Lisa Graham along with their daughters Evie & Maya. Seated on or around the Dixie Chopper from left to right are CMRC Board Members Brian Hohl, Barb Taylor, Brett Nichols, and Dave Snipes.
In 2013, Don and Lisa Graham generously donated to CMRC their Dixie Chopper Commercial Zero Turn Mower with a 74" Deck. Nicknamed by CMRC as "The Beast" the used mower was valued at $8,500.00. A new Dixie Chopper of this size sells for over $13,000. Outside of Alcoa's land donation, this is the highest valued donation that CMRC has ever received.
CMRC has a large amount of acreage to mow. This is a costly endeavor in both actual fuel expense and time. With a limited budget for major purchases such as a new mower, this was a tremendous gift.
Dixie Chopper touts their mowers as the "fastest in the world." Those CMRC volunteers who have used the mower certainly don't dispute that claim. Not only is the mower fast but it cuts through thick vegetation with ease. With the performance capabilities of this mower, mowing time has been significantly reduced.
As an expression or our appreciation, CMRC has extended sponsorship benefits to Don Graham and his business "Graham's Superior Hardwood Floors."
