LEONARDTOWN, Md. – The Commissioners of St. Mary’s County are pleased to announce the appointment of Sunny Squirrel as the Official Mascot for the St. Mary’s County Department of Recreation & Parks.
“I’m totally nuts about our awesome Recreation & Parks programs in St. Mary’s County,” exclaimed Sunny. “Sports, camps, parks, beaches, museums – we’ve got it all!”
Sunny will be making appearances at community events to promote Recreation & Parks programs. Residents are encouraged to take photos with Sunny at these events, and to tag the Department of Recreation & Parks on related social media posts with the hashtags #SunnySighting and #SquirrelSelfie.

Oh good grief.
Laughing at above comment – I was hoping someone else out there felt the same way. Can’t wait to see the mascot at a summer event in July or August – the suit looks a little warm. Thank you Mom of Two for being – in my humble opinion – normal.
I agree with Mom of Two. And I really hope this isn’t a paid position. I heard the financial woes of Recs and Parks at a recent meeting. Our youth need a lot of things across the many sports and activities, but somehow I’m not seeing Sunny Squirrel at the top of the list.
