City of Hagerstown Recreation Superintendent Patty Edleblute, who as recently as November had high hopes for expanding the city's recreational offerings to residents of all ages, resigned late last month to accept a similar position in Loudoun County, Va., city Human Resources Director Donna Messina said Friday.
Messina said Edleblute, who was hired as the city's recreation superintendent in September 2004, resigned as of Dec. 27, 2005. Messina did not recall Thursday the reasons Edleblute gave for her resignation.
As recreation superintendent, Edleblute oversaw the Potterfield Pool, the pro shop at Hagerstown Greens at Hamilton Run, and the leasing and scheduling of activities at Fairgrounds Park.
The former Frederick County parks and recreation coordinator also organized several programs for Hagerstown, including a 5K Parks and Rec Trek held this past fall from Fairgrounds Park to Municipal Stadium.
