If you're a musician by avocation, here are three irresistible opportunities.

The Anne Arundel Community College Jazz Ensemble and the Concert Band, both directed by Eric Richards, may be looking for you.

The Jazz Ensemble needs tenor saxophonists, trombonists and pianists to rehearse and perform. The ensemble rehearses at 7 p.m. on Wednesdays in the humanities lecture hall.

The Concert Band needs trumpeters, oboists, bassoonists, tenor saxophonists and percussionists for 7 p.m. rehearsals every Monday.

For information on either group, call 541-2299.

Speaking of trombones, did you attend last week's county concert at Severna Park High School with the Tommy Dorsey Band, conducted by the great trombonist Buddy Morrow? It was terrific.

* Bay Winds is a concert band of volunteer musicians. The non-profit organization accepts musicians from high school-age and up, and requires no auditions or membership fees. The group is composed of members who are committed to quality concert band music.

The group is looking for brass, woodwind and percussion players. Members are expected to attend weekly rehearsals from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Tuesdays at Annapolis High School and 12 to 14 periodic performances annually.

For more details, contact musical director Michael J. Svec at 224-4003 or President Richard Greulich at 987-5488.

Next year, the Earleigh Heights Volunteer Fire Co. Inc. will celebrate 75 years of protecting you and your home, but it needs your help to continue.

Forget images of firefighters sitting around playing checkers. Last year, our local fire company responded to 3,748 calls, an average of 11 a day. More than 56,000 volunteer hours were spent on fire and medical emergency training, standby and response.

The company is in the midst of its annual fund drive. Although volunteer services are free, expensive equipment isn't. Members hope to replace an old pumper and renovate the fire house, which was built in 1957.

Mail a check to the Earleigh Heights Fire Co., P.O. Box 547, Severna Park, Md. 21146.

The Greater Severna Park Chamber of Commerce invites you to a Business Mixer from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Oct. 21 at the office of plastic surgeon Dr. Jack Frost.

For details, call 544-0707. For more information on the chamber, contact Linda Zahn at 987-6625.

When you make out this weekend's grocery list, don't forget to add a few items for the Severna Park Assistance Network (SPAN). The food can be dropped off at the office behind Our Shepherd Lutheran Church on Benfield Road.

For the past 2 1/2 years, SPAN has provided needy families with food and money for medicine, utilities and emergencies. The organization was overwhelmed this summer with requests for help, and for the first time, it ran out of food and was forced to dip into its reserves to buy more.

To help out, call 647-0889.

A Down's syndrome support group meets from 7:30 to 9 p.m. every third Tuesday at the Severna Park library.

Kathy Plank describes the group as small and open to anyone interested in learning more about the joys and frustrations of DS.

For more information, call 974-1182.
