4-H clubs are cooking up a way to help victims of hurricane SOUTHWEST -- Mount Airy * Woodbine * Taylorsville * Winfield


November 13, 1992|By KATHY SUTPIN

Mount Airy's 4-H Clovers are trying to "make a difference" in the lives of young victims of Hurricane Andrew by having a bake sale from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. tomorrow at Foodrite Groceteria in Mount Airy.

Home-baked cookies, cakes and brownies are being sold to raise money for postage to mail school supplies and personal care items to children in need. The items are being sent to Florida extension agents who have agreed to take the donations directly to schools for distribution.

Ellen Bonde, who spearheaded the collection effort and contacted the "cooperative" extension agents, said boxes of items have been collected by 4-H clubs from Mount Airy and around the county. Three boxes already have been sent to Florida.

The Clovers, a local group that has more than 100 pounds of supplies to mail, would welcome any donations toward postage or a "free ride" for the supplies to the International Mall in Miami.

Information: (301) 831-5824.


Community service is the focus of the Key Club's fourth annual canned food and clothing drive, now in progress at South Carroll High.

Carroll County Food Sunday will be the beneficiary of the school-wide project that began Nov. 2 and will end Nov. 30. In addition to canned and boxed non-perishable foods, clean and folded winter clothing items in good condition are being collected for distribution to local citizens in need.

Last year, South Carroll High was the leading school contributor to Carroll County Food Sunday. If you would like to help the high school help others, call Cindy Perouty-Byrne at 795-8550, or drop off donations at the school office.


As work continues on alterations and an addition to Winfield Elementary School, school officials are planning to adjust attendance boundaries between Winfield and Mount Airy elementary schools for the 1993-1994 school year.

Options for boundary adjustments will be presented to parents at two 7:30 p.m. public meetings: Monday at Mount Airy Elementary, and Wednesday at South Carroll High School. Citizen input will be received at that time.

Central office staff will make recommendations to the Board of Education on Dec. 9. A final decision will be made at a Jan. 5 board meeting in Mount Airy. Information: 875-3383.


Mount Airy area residents Ross Kirk and Boe Smith will bring an evening of Christian drama to the next meeting of the Mount Airy chapter of the Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship International at 8 p.m. tomorrow at Mount Airy Elementary School.

Reverend Kirk, pastor of Locust Grove Church, and Mr. Smith, who is a deacon and youth leader at the same church, have presented programs at local churches, camps and youth groups for the past 12 years.

The meeting is free and open to the public. An optional dinner precedes the meeting at 7 p.m. and costs $7 per person. Dinner reservations are due before Nov. 12 and can be made by calling (301) 829-1264 or (410) 795-3298. (Please note that the day of the meeting is a departure from the group's regular meeting on the first Friday of each month.)


A fried chicken, roast beef and ham dinner will be served family style tomorrow at noon at the Winfield Fire Hall at 1320 W. Old Liberty Road.

The fund-raiser benefits Salem United Methodist Church. The meal is $8 for adults, $3 for children 6-12, and $9 for carry-outs.


Lisbon Pre-Kindergarten's ninth annual Auction Fund-raiser will take place on Thursday at Poplar Springs United Methodist Church on Watersville Road (off Route 144 and Old Frederick Road.)
