Most beautiful named
County Executive Robert R. Neall recently named Annapolis Businesswomen Louise E. Layton to coordinate Anne Arundel County's "Most Beautiful Person" program.
Ms. Layton will be volunteering within the Office of Community Services to promote the award program. In addition to overseeing the volunteer committee that will choose Anne Arundel's "Most Beautiful Person", Ms. Layton will organize a reception to honor all of the individuals nominated for the award.
An active community volunteer herself, she was a 1991 Tribute to Women in Industry honoree.
The Maryland Public Interest Research Group has begun its recycling campaign in Millersville, carrying the clear message of reduce, reuse and recycle.
The group is hoping to pass laws through Congress to make sure the nation's solid waste crisis is cut in half and to preserve natural resources. Information: 332-0025
