City to honor efforts of summer youth workers
The efforts of 250 summer youth workers in city departments will be celebrated tomorrow at Cloverdale Park, on Druid Lake Drive between McCulloh Street and Druid Hill Avenue, the city Department of Public Works announced yesterday.
The annual summer event began last year as a tribute to DPW summer youth worker Andrew Sparrow, who died trying to rescue a drowning friend. This year, a memorial basketball tournament will be included honoring DPW summer youth worker Crystal Gaylord, 17, who was fatally stabbed June 15 at her home on Benninghaus Road.
Tournament play will begin at 10:30 a.m., and a ceremony remembering Crystal is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. on the stage of the city's BelieveMobile vehicle. Mayor Martin O'Malley and Public Works Director George L. Winfield are among the city officials scheduled to join the young people for the event.
