The Mount Hebron Viking Backers have announced that their final fund-raiser of the year will be held April 18. Beginning at 9 a.m., rain or shine, participants in the 5K Viking Run or 1 mile Fun Run/Walk will fill the streets of the quiet residential area around Mount Hebron High School.

Awards will go to the first three runners in the open division, the 19-and-under division, age 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50 and older, and male and female divisions.

There will also be awards for the first three Mount Hebron teachers, Mount Hebron students by class, police officers, firefighters, Clydesdale men (190 pounds or more) and women (160 pounds or more).

In addition, random drawings will be held for prizes from local merchants, including consumer goods, sun tans, fine dining and an evening in a limousine.

The Vikings have planned a free health screening to coincide with this event. Local hospitals and health-related businesses will offer a blood pressure check, body fat analysis, diabetes lTC check and health information for all participants.

To keep everyone's energy level high, the Vikings will serve water, soda and fresh fruit.

Entry fee for the race is $10 if the entry form is postmarked by Saturday, $12 thereafter. Fee for the walk is $5 if postmarked by Saturday and $7 thereafter.

The entry fee includes a free logo T-shirt.

For an entry form, call Race Director Bill Williams at (410) 461-1261, or inquire at the school, 313-2880.

I love to hear about local business supporting education in the county! So kudos go to Gallery 44, educational partner to Bushy Park Elementary School in Glenwood.

The Gallery 44 staff will provide the school with art, history and photography resource information for the school's fourth- and fifth-grade students, Art Teacher Denise Venezia and Media Specialist Diane Pickeral.

In addition, students will be invited to mat their photographs in preparation for exhibition at Gallery 44, in the Bethany 40 Shopping Center in Ellicott City.

Northfield Elementary School is planning its 25th anniversary party for the first weekend in May.

A faculty party, to include all former and present faculty members, will be held at the Columbia Hilton on the evening of May 1. On Sunday, May 2, the school will hold open house from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

All former and present faculty members, staff members and students, as well as some anticipated honorees, are invited to reunite and share school memories.

Science exhibits, a slide show, musical performances by the band and orchestra, and a tour of the school will provide entertainment for all attenders. Refreshments will be served.

The anniversary celebration committee is attempting to notify all those who attended or worked at the school of this happy occasion. It has posted fliers at local high schools, announced it on Howard County's Cable 8 and notified some teachers by mail.

However, as you know if you have attended any school reunion, it is easy to lose touch with friends. And there are people whom the committee has not been able to locate. So, they asked me to help them to spread the word.

If you know of someone who has been involved in Northfield School, please notify the person of the Anniversary.

If you have questions, please call the school at 313-2806.

Teacher Jennifer Weigel, who attended Northfield School, is heading up the effort and will be glad to answer questions if you leave a message for her.
