”I chose to be an agitator. And there’s one interesting thing about being an agitator — and I tell people — the next time you put your underwear in the washing machine, take the agitator out, and all you’re going to end up with is some dirty, wet drawers.”
Please join us tomorrow (February 18, 2018) and all of next week, as we walk the halls of The Oxon Hill Manor and look at the magnificent display of 60 years of Service, Agitation, and Sacrifice. Brought to you by Prince George’s County, Maryland Department of Parks & Recreation.
