Group calls for help to work on Savage Fest

The Savage Community Association will hold the first planning meeting for Savage Fest '93 at 8 p.m. tonight in Carroll Baldwin Community Hall.

Scheduled for Saturday, June 5, the Savage festival is in danger of being canceled due to a lack of "willing workers," according to Bill Waff, the group's newly elected president.

"Many Savage residents have enjoyed past festivals, but few have volunteered their time to plan and stage them," Mr. Waff said.

"Now is the time to become involved," he added. "There are about a dozen areas in need of organization."

Mr. Waff encourages Savage residents to attend tonight's meeting and "choose your job."

Anyone who wishes to help with this year's festival but cannot attend the meeting is asked to contact Mr. Waff or his wife, Ellen, at (301) 725-1089.

Revived about three years ago, the Savage festival usually includes a parade, craft show, antique cars, food booths, children's games and a carousel.

Savage teen named state pageant finalist

Christina Cox, a 17-year-old Savage resident, has been named a state finalist in the Miss America Coed pageant scheduled for June 18 and 19 at Marriott Hotel at Baltimore-Washington International Airport.

Christina is the daughter of the Rev. Don Cox and his wife, Rose Marie. Mr. Cox is the pastor of Bethel Assembly of God Church in Savage.

A junior at Hammond High School, Christina is an editor on the school newspaper.

Before coming to Hammond this year, Christina attended Bethel Christian Academy in Savage, where she was chosen student of the year as a sophomore. While attending Bethel she was a member of the cheerleading squad and the girls' basketball team.

Open to girls who are good students, the American Coed Pageant is divided into divisions for coeds, ages 13 to 19; preteens, ages 8 to 12; and princesses, ages 4 to 8.

Contestants will be judged on poise, personality, stage appearance, school achievements, service to community and church, and a personal interview.
