As that frightening date quickly approaches, we are racing around trying to get camp applications completed, enrolling our children in every summer activity available in Maryland, Pennsylvania and even Virginia.

Yes, June 13 is almost here and kids will be out of school for 60 days (this does not even include weekends). If you have not enrolled your child in any summer activities you may live to regret it.

However, there is still time to take care of this important matter. The county Department of Recreation and Parks has mailed out theirbrochure of summer activities for 1991. Kids and families can enjoy a variety of activities: nature hikes, science camps, pre-school programs, camps for children with special needs, aquatics classes and oneof our favorites . . . summer playgrounds.

Space limitations makeearly registration advisable. Applications will be mailed to most county residents or may be picked up at the library. For more information, 222-3600.


High school students 15 and older who have not decided what to do this summer should consider volunteering at HarborHospital Center to assist with clerical and stockroom duties.

Volunteers will receive free parking, meal tickets, smocks and a discount pharmacy plan.

For more information, call Ann Heil at 347-3478.


Belle Grove Elementary School news: Volunteers are such an important part of schools that it's only natural the school staff wouldlike to recognize their efforts.

The school is having a "Volunteer Luncheon," noon to 1 p.m. Thursday in the school media center. If you plan to attend, please contact the school at 789-8777.

* Parents are invited to attend kindergarten orientation with their child from 8:50 to 9:45 a.m. Wednesday, June 5.

The Spring Bazaar was a huge success. The winners of the May Day court were: Jimmy Siegert, king, and Deana Egitto, queen. Prince and Princess from each class also were selected: Jeff Critchfield and Katie Barrett(first grade); Jason Lhamon and Nicole Duffett (grade one/two); Jennifer Simms and Dale Gallagher (grade two); Teresa Coleman and Matt Critchfield (grade three); Crystal Orr and Daniel Heward (grade three/four); Katie Cservek and Kevin Ebersole (grade five).

* Fitness is no longer a fad, but the way to a healthy long life. Good habits begin early.

Elementary students from across the state participate in Project Superfit, which tests fitness levels.

Awards will be givenbased on statewide norms and percentages.

The school will test all first-graders this week. Please dress your children appropriately (tennis shoes) so they will do well.

Superfit tests will be today and Friday. Good luck to all.
