Snow-canceled events restored to calendar NORTH COUNTY -- Linthicum * Ferndale * Brooklyn Park * Pumphrey


April 05, 1993|By ROSALIE M. FALTER

As we see the crocus peeking up through the dirt, listen to the birds' early morning chatter and feel the temperatures rising, it is hard to believe that just a few weeks ago we had a blizzard.

The heavy snow forced the postponement of a church supper and a benefit dance. Now, they are back on the calendar.


The annual ham and oyster dinner sponsored by the Methodist Men of the Linthicum Heights United Methodist Church will be Saturday, April 17. The dinner will run from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

In addition to ham and oysters, the menu will consist of sweet potatoes, green beans, corn, rolls, dessert and beverages. Tickets are $9 for adults, $7 for youths 12 to 18 and $5 for children 4 to 12. Children under 4 are free.

The church is at 200 School Lane. For additional information, call 859-0990 or 859-5939.


The Anne Arundel Gridiron Rebels' St. Patrick's Day Dance will take place from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. at the Riviera Beach Fire Hall. Music will be provided by Rebound.

Tickets are $13 per person with beer and setups included. All proceeds go to the general fund.

For information, call Kathy at 437-5749.


Snow was no deterrent for Boy Scout Troop 550. Even though members had to get through 5 to 10 inches of snow at Briarwood Scout Camp last month, they weren't deterred from their planned activities.

The weekend provided the perfect opportunity for several Scouts to earn their cooking merit badge by preparing some hearty meals outdoors.

During the day, the Scouts worked on the requirement that includes the correct use of the knife, ax and saw. Learning how to use a two-man saw provided cut wood for the stove and campfire. They also worked on orienteering skills that included the use of a map and compass as well as the ability to read trail signs.

The weekend was led by Tanager Ricci, troop senior patrol leader. Other Scouts in attendance were George Couch, John Hinkle, Joe Jenning, Jason Pardoe, Phil Pitts, Paul Rave, John Rouse, Eli Senter and David Starr,

Adults present were Assistant Scoutmaster James Dunne, Webelos leaders Brian Senter and Bruce Hinkle and committeeman David Rave.

Troop 550 is sponsored by the Linthicum Elementary School PTA.
