Heritage Society has benefit doll raffle

The Odenton Heritage Society is sponsoring a doll raffle to raise money to convert a historic bank building into its headquarters.

The raffle of two hand-made porcelain dolls will be Dec. 5. The winner will get first choice of the dolls and the second place finisher will get the other one.

To buy raffle tickets, which cost $1 each or six for $5, call Ms. Shoemaker at 674-3171.

The raffle is part of an effort to raise money to buy and repair the Citizen's State Bank building near the MARC train station off Odenton Road. The bank was built in 1917.

The Maryland Department of Transportation has agreed to grant the society $55,000 toward an estimated $120,000 needed to buy and restore the building as a combination commuter concession stand and history museum. The society will borrow the rest of the money through a county low-interest loan program.

Sally Shoemaker, president of the heritage society, said the group hopes to raise $100,000, which will be used to repay the loan. The group has raised $7,000.

But Ms. Shoemaker said other fund raisers are being planned, which may include an auction next spring. The society already sells post cards sponsored by county businesses that depict local historical scenes.
