March 11, 1993|By SALLY BUCKLER

The aroma of Italian food is an invitation to good eating, and March 21 is your chance to enjoy the taste and aroma of chef Joe Firitti's homemade Italian cooking at the Catholic Youth Ministry's 13th annual Italian dinner.

Your ticket buys dinner in a festive atmosphere with Italian music and decorations and lots of fun. Spaghetti, lasagna, salad, bread and beverages are on the menu.

After dinner, try the scrumptious homemade desserts. Those over 21 may purchase beer and wine. Sixth- through 12th-graders will serve you between 1:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. in the St. Louis School auditorium on Route 108 in Clarksville. This is the main fund-raiser for the CYM program. The group uses the money to subsidize trips, retreats and other activities.

Ticket prices for spaghetti are $5.75 for adults and $4 for children, or you may purchase a family ticket for spaghetti for your immediate family for $20. Lasagna is $7.

There will be two special raffles that day. A handmade afghan will be some lucky person's prize, and someone will win a 50/50 raffle. The raffles will help subsidize a trip to Denver for the World Day of Youth this summer for some St. Louis youths. For more information, call the CYM office at 531-6668.

The Glenwood Lions Club serves much of western Howard County. Its members are a committed crew, who have a ball doing what they do. They plan various activities. They support the Wilmer Eye Clinic at Johns Hopkins Hospital, collect discarded glasses to send to different parts of the world and raise money for scholarships and other community benefits. All the money the Lions raise is used for good works.

President Win Riley reports that the active club wants to talk to people from western Howard County who would like to become involved in community projects through Lionism. Call Mr. Riley at (301) 854-6173 or Bill Pindell at 489-4392 if you wish to learn about becoming a Lion with the Glenwood Club.

I goofed. The deadline for turning in Giant Food cash register rTC receipts was not March 6, as I reported last week. The schools are still accepting the receipts. Though the program ended last weekend, the schools have until March 20 to deposit their receipts.

Barbara Graybeal of the West Friendship Elementary School PTA said that last year many receipts came in too late for the school to use them to purchase equipment. Please get your receipts in to your favorite school soon.

When there is a fire, our community is quick to react and provide all the help neighbors can give. Susie Schoonover, who lives in Glenelg, was devastated by a fire eight years ago, so she was particularly upset to hear that her sister and brother-in-law were burned out Feb. 28 in Carroll County.

Their house is a shell, and the clothes they were wearing are all they have left. Susie is collecting clothes and household goods for her relatives. She'd be pleased to have whatever you can spare from the back of your closets and cupboards for Nancy and Filmore Runkles. Call her at 442-2163.

District adjudications for the Glenelg High School Symphonic Band are Friday and Saturday. Panels of judges will critique the band twice.

They will rate the band's performance on a scale of one, nearly perfect, to five, very poor. First the band will play three prepared pieces from a list of music, graded from easy to very difficult. Each band director selects the music for his group, and Barry Enzman of Glenelg chooses very difficult work.

He sets high standards, which the band always meets. After playing the prepared pieces, the members go to the sight reading room, where they see a new piece of music and have five minutes to prepare to play it for judging. The Glenelg Band has a record of many scores of one, and they will surely play their best at their adjudication this week.
