Neighbors/ Crofton

September 15, 1992|By Sue Haller

After a lazy summer, many Crofton organizations are kicking back into high gear. Car washes, yard sales and craft fairs dot the calendar this month, and school groups are getting busy, too.

* The annual Crofton Kiwanis Garage Sale will be held Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. next door to the Crofton Dunkin Donuts on Route 3.

Money collected at the sale goes back to the community in one of the many projects that the Kiwanis help to sponsor throughout the year.

* Next Saturday -- the 26th -- many of your friends and neighbors will be out on the Crofton Village Green at the Fall Craft Fair.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In addition to all the crafts for sale, the Boy Scouts will be out in force, cooking up some of their famous barbecued chicken.

Don't go away hungry. Remember to purchase your food tickets and support a worthwhile group.


Crofton schools are throwing open their doors this week.

Tonight, Crofton Middle School is having an open house at 7 o'clock. You can meet your child's teacher, pop your head in the classrooms and ask questions.

Music night will start at 6 p.m. and run until 8:30 p.m. tonight at Crofton Elementary School. Representatives of music stores will demonstrate instruments that students may rent for the school year.

Don't forget that school will be open a half day tomorrow for staff training. No kindergarten classes will be held tomorrow.

* The Crofton Scrabble Club meets the fourth Friday of each month in the Kiwanis Activities Center of the Crofton Country Club. New players in all skill categories are welcome.

* Do you have a car, van or truck that is in need of a good cleaning? If so, the Crofton cheerleaders may be able to lend a hand, quite literally.

The girls are holding their first car wash of the year Saturday to help raise money for the program. The car wash will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Crofton Exxon on Route 3.

Sherri McKeever, the new cheerleading commissioner, has been hard at work on this and many other projects for the girls.

The cheerleaders will be selling candy bars, too.

* The Greater Crofton Council is continuing on a growth plan for the community. The council meets the second Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. at the Crofton Library. The group has been researching the status of roads, highways and developments and will also consider planned sewer and school growth.

Board members are also interested in hearing residents opinions and concerns.

Residents are asked to contact their homeowners' association or their Greater Crofton Council representative.
