Washington's Birthday 5K race to end with hot cider at finish line CENTRAL COUNTY -- Arnold * Broadneck * Severna Park * Crownsville * Millersville


February 11, 1993|By JONI BUHNE

If you fell in love with racing at the Valentine's Relay, join the Annapolis Striders again for its Washington's Birthday 5K at 10 a.m., Feb. 20 at the Bay Hills Community Center in Arnold.

The 3.1-mile course follows rolling residential streets, beginning and ending on Bay Hills Drive. Hot cider, fruit and cookies will be served at the finish line.

Awards will go to the male and female winners in the 13 age groups.

To give you an idea of the competition, Robert Marino and Carol Cosenza hold the open champion titles with times of 15:26 and 18:53. Masters champion titles are held by Anthony Grier, 16:35, and Mary Ann Zuckerman, 20:39.

Entry fees for members are $3 before Monday; $4 for non-members. Race-day entry fees are $1 more. Information: 268-1165.


Portraits by Maryland artist Charlotte Berry will hang in an exhibit from Monday through March 12 in the Pascal Center for Performing Arts at Anne Arundel Community College.

"Portraits: Exterior/Interior" includes works in oil, pastels and charcoal.

"I am not interested in just capturing the surface likeness," says Berry. "A presence, at the very least, is what I try to achieve."

Best known for her "exterior portraits" in which she explores character, mood and design, this show includes "interior portraits" taken from memories and dreams.

A graduate of the University of Maryland and an adjunct faculty member at the community college, Berry earned her master's degree from the Maryland Institute College of Art.

Last summer, one of her portraits was displayed in the Corcoran Gallery in Washington.

Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday; 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday. Admission is free.

With so many central countians living near the water, many of you might want to attend the slide show and lecture at the community college at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, by Craig Alig, head of the environmental protection branch of the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Annapolis (formerly the David Taylor Research Center).

Alig will discuss U.S. Navy plans for the disposal of shipboard waste.

Information: 541-2433.

* Don't be confused by the "For Sale" sign in front of the CanceResource & Support Center on Old Baltimore-Annapolis Boulevard.

It's the large, old home that is for sale, not the center, which offers free emotional, social and educational support for cancer patients and their families.

The home's owner, Dr. Cornelia M. Dettmer, chief radiation oncologist at the Anne Arundel Oncology Center, rented the house for free to CaRES after the organization found it couldn't afford high rents in the area. Now that Dr. Dettmer is retiring and returning to Ohio, the home is no longer available.

So, CaRES is searching for about 2,000 square feet of commercial space with a kitchen and rooms large enough for meetings, as well as room for the business operation.

* A Charlie Byrd benefit Concert for CaRES is planned from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., March 14 in the Blue Heron Room at Quiet Waters Park. Joining Charlie will be Joe Byrd and Chuck Redd. Tickets are $125 per couple or $62.50 per person.

* CaRES also is sponsoring a drawing for a free trip to Maui, Hawaii. The trip includes two round-trip airfares and room accommodations at the Royal Kahana for six days and five nights.

Tickets are $10 and the drawing will be held at the Byrd concert.

The non-profit organization is maintained by individual, community and corporate tax-deductible donations. Information: 647-3555.
