Does cleaning out your clothes closets top your 1993 resolutions list? Then gather all the excess clothing, shoes and other accessories and deliver them to the Discovery Shop in the Didonato Plaza on Ritchie Highway.

"The resale boutique is currently in desperate need of these items for men, women and children," says manager Pamela Prevar. "We can also use collectibles."

The shop is sponsored by the American Cancer Society and staffed by volunteers. Donations are accepted during shop hours: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day except Sunday.

A show of in-house fashions is planned from 10 a.m. to noon Tuesday. The shop's One Day Bag Sale is set for Jan. 30. A large bag full of items will cost only $5.

Information: 544-0568.


At the beginning of another project-filled year, the Severna Park Elks will take time to reflect on a busy 1992. Last spring, the Elks lodge was the site of the after-prom breakfast for Severna Park High School seniors.

The Elks filled more than 50 baskets at Thanksgiving and 60 at Christmas for local families.

The 427-member group continues to support SPAN -- the Severna Park Assistance Network -- and the Giant and Safeway grocery receipt exchange program for students.

Information: 647-2482.


Freshly prepared pizzas should be ordered by Monday from the Severna Park High School Band Boosters for a Jan. 16 delivery.

Pizzas are $5 each, and the proceeds help support instrument and uniform repair and trips to parades and competitions. To order, call 647-8077 or 544-4893.
