Manhattan Beach Clubhouse Closed

UPDATE JUNE 4, 2020: Unfortunately, at this point the Manhattan Beach Clubhouse will remain closed through Stage 2 of the Governor’s reopening plan of Maryland as well. The current directive does not allow for gatherings of more than 10 (ten) people. Once the approved quantity is raised to 50 people, we will revisit the reopening of the clubhouse based upon the standards that must be upheld in order to provide a safe and sanitary gathering area. We are sorry for the effect this will have on your upcoming and potential events.

For more information on the current Executive order please click HERE.

UPDATE APRIL 27, 2020: The Manhattan Beach Clubhouse will be following the timeline of Governor Hogan’s reopening plan. Therefore we will NOT be open for events until he approves gatherings of 50 or more people. We will NOT be able to schedule ANY new events until this declaration has been made.

UPDATE March 16,2020: Due to the directive of Governor Hogan, effective at 5:00 PM this evening, the clubhouse will remain closed until May 11, 2020.

Due to the health concerns surrounding Covid-19, as well as to support the effort of social distancing, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all events held at the clubhouse through the first week of April effective immediately. This will include both community events and private rentals at our clubhouse through the first week of April. We realize this is a huge inconvenience and for that we are extremely sorry. However the health of our residents and the guests that visit the clubhouse are of our utmost concern.

At this time we will not be scheduling future rentals until we can accommodate any of the disruptions that these cancellations inevitably will result in.

We will update this page with any changes, as this is a constantly evolving situation.

Thank you for your understanding

Each adult will stand by their car to hand out treats to the kids. Of course, you don’t need to drive to the community center to participate… Use your bike, stroller, or just stand in the lot if you walked there!

See you there, ghosts and ghouls!

Little Free Library Has Come to Manhattan Beach

Ribbon Cutting for Little Free Library
at Manhattan Beach Community Center

Friday September 22nd at 6:30pm

Join us for a happy hour and ribbon cutting to celebrate the installation of the new “Little Free Library” at our community center, 742 Dividing Rd.

Little Free Library is a worldwide book sharing and social movement designed to promote literacy, a love of reading, and a sense of community.

The idea is simple- if you see a book you like, take it! After you’re done, return it or pass it on to a friend. If you have a book you’d like to donate and share with other readers, leave it in the library when there is space to do so.

We are so excited for this addition to the community and would like to thank stewards, Robin Schwartz and Erin Oczkowski for all of their efforts.

This event is BYOB. Please bring a snack to share. If you have any questions or wish to help with this project, please contact:
