Yard sale and car wash both clean up quite nicely


September 22, 1992|By Sue Haller

The weather Saturday didn't prevent people from attending the Crofton Kiwanis Club's yard sale and the Crofton Cheerleaders' car wash. Both events were quite successful.

And the winner is Gail Kakuk of Glen Burnie. Ms. Kakuk's name was picked in the Crofton Chamber of Commerce raffle. She won two season tickets to Washington Redskins home games. Ms. Kakuk bought the winning ticket at the Citizen Bank of Maryland in Crofton.
