Annual 3 on 3 Basketball Game RESCHEDULED
We apologize to anyone who showed up for the 3 on 3 Tourney on May 21, only to be told that we had to reschedule because of weather. The annual tournament is now set for Saturday, June 11, beginning at noon, in the Cheverly Community Center.
It's Going to be a GREAT Birthday Party!
UPDATE: DUE TO IMPENDING WEATHER, WE HAVE CANCELED
THE 2016 PARADE & HOPE TO HAVE IT IN 2017.
We ARE celebrating in the gym, starting at 2pm!
Into every life a little rain must fall...and we are definitely getting our share! As you probably already know, the weather this Saturday looks unseasonably cool and quite rainy, so we have come up with a brilliant "B" plan to save Cheverly Day. We hope that you will join us for Cheverly's grand 85th BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION!
Please join us at the Community Center beginning at 2pm on Saturday for a day filled with music, food, art and fun. Bring your families, friends, and neighbors and spend the afternoon enjoying the community. Who knows...there may even be a little birthday cake to celebrate 85 years of Cheverly! Please visit our website for the complete schedule.
What about the rest of the day? The parade? The fireworks? We are still hoping to bring two favorite outside events to you on Saturday, but with some minor alterations. We hope to begin the parade at 10am as originally scheduled (participants please check in and line up at 9am). We do plan to have fireworks as scheduled, but will need to make a final determination at 7pm on Saturday. Please make sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the very latest news on the parade, fireworks, and all other events.
Unfortunately, several great attractions -- the East-West Softball Game, most Midway games, Bubble Soccer, the dunk tank, and putt putt golf -- are cancelled because of the poor conditions of the fields. We have also cancelled our circulator service for Saturday. Look for all these events to return in 2017. We will go ahead with laser tag, which will be on the basketball court, and the 3 on 3 Tourney has been rescheduled for Sunday, May 22.
Many thanks to our sponsors, businesses, and community groups for their continued support of Cheverly Day 2016. We're looking forward to celebrating our 85th birthday with you this Saturday!
A special THANK YOU to our wonderful sponsors and corporate donors for supporting us, especially as we have had to make weather-related changes to this year's events.

Cheverly Day relies on many volunteers to succeed every year...and this year we need YOU! There are opportunities at every level -- putting the putt putt holes back in working order, helping with the parade, stage help, midway games, logistics, breaking things down on May 22...we're sure there are some great things you can do to help that we haven't even thought of yet! This is another great way to share your support of Cheverly Day 2016 with the entire community, and a terrific way for students to earn those all-important service hours.

We’ve come a long way from 1931 – an era of tremendous challenge and sacrifice, but also a time of people working together in communities. We enjoyed the music of Cab Calloway, Kate Smith, and Guy Lombardo, and movies by Charlie Chaplin and Bela Lugosi. Did you know that The Star Spangled Banner became the official National Anthem of the United States in 1931? The first Donald Duck cartoon and Dick Tracy comic launched that same year, and the Empire State Building and George Washington Bridge in New York opened. Lou Gehrig played his 1,000th baseball game. Babe Ruth hit his 600th home run. And Cheverly, Maryland, was incorporated on April 18, 1931.
We’re looking forward to sharing Cheverly’s 85th anniversary with the entire community, and we need your help. Start planning those parade floats and entries now! Want to get involved in planning the big event? We’d love to have your input. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to lend your support.
