Area groups make spring spruce-ups easier NORTH COUNTY--Linthicum * Ferndale * Brooklyn Park * Pumphrey


April 12, 1993|By ROSALIE M. FALTER

If April makes you think of spring cleaning, here are some ideas for cleaning your home, your car and the environment.


North County High School Band students will be waiting on Saturday with water, soap and buckets to clean the dirt and grime from your car. They will be at the Hardee's at Cromwell Field Shopping Center and on Morgan Road behind Little Caesar's at the Ritchie Highway Shopping Center. Take your car to either location from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The car wash is free, but donations will be accepted.

Students also are accepting pledges on the number of cars they can wash. Profits will benefit their planned Toronto trip.

The rain date is Sunday.


Linthicum residents Kelly Punte and Pam Haley, last fall's River Road cleanup organizers, received a letter from Gov. William Donald Schaefer's office inviting them to participate in Saturday's "Give a Day for the Bay."

"We thought of them because they did such a great job cleaning the area last fall," county Community Services Specialist Kathy Shatt said. "At that time 32 tons of debris were removed."

The county will close River Road from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for the cleanup. Detour signs will be posted.

Organizers anticipate 130 volunteers will help clean the Patapsco River Watershed, removing items that have been illegally dumped. The county is providing three trash bins. The trash will be sorted for recycling.

Workers will get lunch and refreshments. Volunteers are still needed. Park your car and register at the Toyota dealership at River and West Nursery roads, or call Kelly Punte at 859-0344.

The group also is looking for businesses willing to donate food, trash bags and paper cups.


After cleaning out your closets, attics and basements, call one of the following organizations and rent a table to sell your items.

* Tables cost $8 at the Friendship Church of the Brethren Flea Market from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on May 8. Call Cecelia Hildebrand at 789-1472 after 5 p.m.

* A 12-by-12 space rents for $12 at the Flea Market/Craft Show sponsored by the Women of St. John's Lutheran Church on May 1. More than 100 outdoor spaces will be available on the field opposite the church. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Vendors can begin setting up at 8 a.m. The deadline for reservations is April 24. Call Marion at 893-5413 or Mary at 859-3151. The rain date is May 15.


If you are talented in dance, cheerleading or gymnastics, or just like working with children, the Anne Arundel Gridiron Rebels needs your help.

The Rebels, a nonprofit youth organization, is looking for volunteer coaches to work with girls ages 5 to 15. If you can donate a few hours a week, attend the registration from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. tomorrow in the North County High School cafeteria, or call the Rebel hot line at 636-2166.

* Girls and boys ages 4 to 17 who are interested in learning gymnastics or in increasing their skill levels are invited to sign up for an eight-week gymnastic program sponsored by the Rebels. Registration is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. tomorrow in the NCHS cafeteria.

The program begins Thursday with classes from 6 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the NCHS cafeteria. Classes include two beginner, one intermediate and one advanced. The fee is $60, $40 for Rebels members. For more information, call 636-2166.


The Woman's Club of Linthicum Heights will conduct its annual meeting at 10:30 a.m. tomorrow at the clubhouse. Officers and chairwomen will report group activities from April 1992 through March 1993.

After the reports, the Youth Art Awards will be presented. Profits from the prayer breakfast will be presented to representatives from Sarah's House and Hearth House, a home for mothers in Arbutus.
