Money raised for festival


December 01, 1992|By VICKI WELLFORD

The Music Department at MacArthur Middle School, along with the MacArthur Band, Orchestra, Chorus Parent Organization (MACBOCPO), has been busy holding fund-raisers to help all performing groups attend a music festival scheduled for Hershey Park in May. Bake sales, the annual car wash, and candy bar sales have all been very successful.

All questions and ideas for MACBOCPO can be directed to this year's officers: President Kathy Campbell, Vice President Hermimia Bye, Secretary Claudette Booker, Corresponding Secretary Linda Roberts, Treasurer Mary Clark and Assistant Treasurer Roxanne Wray.

On Oct. 5, the NCO-EM Wives' Club presented $1,000 to MacArthur's band, orchestra and chorus for sound equipment.

On Oct. 15, the concert band performed for former Florida Gov. Bob Martinez, head of the federal government's anti-drug effort, during a school assembly.

On Oct. 31, it played at the NCO-EM Wives' Club's annual Halloween Parade and Carnival; on Nov. 11, at the Officers' Wives' Club Luncheon celebrating the 75th anniversary of Fort Meade.

Now, the department is preparing all performing groups for the Winter Concert, set for 7 p.m. on Dec. 15 in the school gym.


A portrait of the Rev. John Robert Nichols, founder of Nichols Memorial Methodist Protestant Church, will be dedicated Sunday at the Nichols-Bethel United Methodist Church in Odenton.

The dedication will take place during both services, with members of the Nichols family attending the 11 a.m. service.

The painting was donated by Alicia Nichols Heinrich and Kenneth L. Nichols, great-grandchildren of Mr. Nichols.

Restoration work was accomplished by David Harrison of Antique Art and Furniture Co. Inc. of Gaithersburg. The restoration was made possible by donations from members and friends of Nichols-Bethel United Methodist Church and members of the Nichols family.


On Oct. 24, Elizabeth Gearhart, Greta Collins and Tim Coulter represented Arundel Middle School in the state Mathalon at MacArthur Middle School. Approximately 30 schools participated.

The Mathalon includes three parts: an individual written round of 30 questions in 30 minutes; an inventions round, where students from different schools work in teams of four; and a team round of 10 problems in 30 minutes. The team may use calculators.

Elizabeth and Greta received a third-place ribbon in the inventions round.
