Heritage Society gathering histories

The Odenton Heritage Society will meet Wednesday morning to collect written histories from older residents as it continues working on a comprehensive history of the West County community.

Sally Shoemaker, president of the society, said the theme for 1993 is, "The People of Odenton." Members who have been recording oral histories hope to add to their biographical collection Wednesday. About 25 to 30 people are expected to participate.

Also on the agenda are a discussion on a major fund-raiser and an update on the acquisition of a historic bank building and conversion into a headquarters for the society.

Ms. Shoemaker said the closing date on the purchase should be next month.

The monthly meeting is scheduled for 10 a.m. in the Odenton Library.
