Come aboard the pirate ship, and let's go to Never-Neverland. If you're ready for pirates, Indians, lost boys and some larger-than-life magical animals, you're ready for "Peter Pan," the spring musical production of the Glenelg High School Drama Department.

Producer Ron Oaks promises a trip you'll never-never forget. His talented cast and crew have worked hard to prepare a spectacular play, which they'll present Feb. 24, 26, 27, at 8 p.m. and Feb. 28 at 3 p.m.

After the Sunday matinee, some of the actors will visit and talk with young audience members. Mary Marlin and Emily Eyre direct the production. Mike Zink is Peter Pan, and Chris Yeiser is Captain Hook. Wendy Humphries is Wendy, and Richard Butler and Becky Ford play Mr. and Mrs. Darling. Jill Weinknecht is Tiger Lily, and Tom Kouyeas and Carl Laws are Michael and John.

Tickets are $6. The number at the school for more information is 313-5528.


Valentine's Day is Sunday. It's time to romance your sweetheart. Sunday is also World Marriage Day. Members of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Lisbon invite all married couples in western Howard County to join them in renewing their marriage vows at the 10:15 a.m. worship service Valentine's Day.

This could be the start of a very romantic day. It's a chance to celebrate your marriage and tell your spouse you'd do it all over. Couples renewing their vows are invited to bring the kids and to join an informal reception complete with a wedding cake after the service. St. Paul's is at 16457 Old Frederick Road, one mile west of Route 94. For more information, call the church office at 489-4411 or Lee Hajek at 442-1641.

Call Kathy Weber at 531-6494 to order a sub or contact any member of the Band or Marching Unit.

The Catholic Youth Ministry at St. Louis Church will hold a coffee house Friday in the St. Louis School auditorium. Proceeds from the coffee house will help support the youngsters' participation in the archdiocesan one-act play contest. Students will present a dress rehearsal of their play, "The Untitled Miracle."

They planned to do the second act of "The Miracle Worker" but were denied permission to use the play. The enterprising high school students then wrote their own play. Authors are Lisa Sullivan, Barbara Price, Diane Cain, and John Duffy, with important contributions from the rest of the cast.

The coffee house debut of this work begins at 7:30 p.m., and the evening will also feature a band, some poetry reading and some guitar playing and singing by Youth Minister Chuck Wible. You can have all of this plus coffee, tea, soft drinks and snacks for a $2 donation at the door. Call 531-6668 for more information.


The youth group at Shepherd of the Glen Lutheran Church will share an afternoon of swimming Feb. 21. They'll leave the church for the Columbia Swim Center at 2:30 p.m. Sign up at the church or call 442-1204 for information.


You're at work every day and can't get off early enough to coach your child's team. You love kids and the colorful waves of players and families who attend the Saturday soccer games at the Glenwood-Bushy Park complex in the fall. You want to help.

Well, the Department of Recreation and Parks and the Western Howard County Youth Soccer League are looking for you. They need a volunteer to become a board member for the League as the person in charge of the snack bar.

It's a popular enterprise that generates money to keep the league going for the children. If you'd like to help, call Barbara Patterson at 313-5421 or Mark Pendleton at 313-5420.

If you seek adventure to melt away thoughts of winter, sign up for Waverly's First Murder Mystery. Adults over 21 can talk, mingle, and meet some real characters Saturday at 7 p.m. at the Waverly Mansion in Marriottsville.

Participants will interrogate suspects, examine clues and help solve a crime. For your $35 fee, you'll enjoy finger foods and beverages, including wine. Prepare yourself to be bold and risk certain hazards to solve the puzzle. Call 313-5420 or 313-5421 for information.


All men and women in western Howard County and their friends over the age of 60 are invited to drop in at the Second Wednesday Club at Glenelg United Methodist Church. There is no membership fee, but you may make a coffee donation. Bring a potluck dish to share.

Because there are lots of good cooks at these events, there's always a great variety of food. The group has lots of fun the second Wednesday of every month, beginning at noon.

Snow dates are the third Wednesday of the month. Last week they made valentines for shut-ins at a festive Valentine's Day party.

March 10 is a day to get into the spirit for St. Patrick's Day. In April, the Second Wednesday Club from St. Louis Church in Clarksville has invited them to join their meeting and do some line dancing. Call Dorothy Asendorf at 531-2705 for more information.

Happy Valentine's Day!
