Hagerstown Aims To Boost Recreation

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — The city of Hagerstown is looking to lure more young professionals by offering games to play.

Newly hired Recreation Services Coordinator Andy Hoffman says he wants to make recreation a selling point for the city.

Hoffman previously owned a business that organized teams and leagues for basketball, kickball, dodge ball, flag football and ultimate Frisbee. City officials say they want to add those and other games to their recreational program.

Hoffman’s duties also include marketing the municipal golf course and swimming programs, and overseeing the historic Jonathan Hager House and the Hagerstown Railroad Museum.
