​​2017 Grand Marshal ​​
Jerry Klobukowski
​  
It’s a grand year for Town of Poolesville resident and commissioner, Jerry Klobukowski, which has culminated in his being named Grand Marshal for the 2017 Poolesville Day Parade. As reported in the July 14 issue of the Monocle, he was recently inducted into the Maryland Municipal League’s (MML) Municipal Officials’ Hall of Fame.
 
In his twenty years as a town commissioner, he has been the town’s liaison for the town board of commissioners on educational matters, acting as town representative at county board of education meetings during that two-decade period. In that capacity, he has been one of the key voices advocating for the PHS Whole School Magnet Program, modernization of PHS, building of the John Poole Middle School, and full funding for the Global Ecology Studies Program as well as the construction of the school’s athletic field facilities.
  
In addition to his contribution as a commissioner, he has volunteered often for his church, St. Mary’s in Barnesville, and the local Daniel-Jeffers American Legion Post 247.
 
In hearing about his selection as grand marshal, Jerry told the Monocle, “I can sincerely say that I am very humbled and deeply honored by the Poolesville Day Committee's decision to choose me to be the Grand Marshal of the 2017 Poolesville Day Parade, especially as it falls during Poolesville's sesquicentennial. I just hope that I don’t look that old.”
