July 26, 1993|By ROSALIE M. FALTER

The Ferndale Roadrunners don't take a summer hiatus like many other groups and clubs do. The group's calendar is as busy now as it is the rest of the year.

The seniors still have their club meetings the second and fourth Thursdays of the month and they continue to gather for penny bingo from noon to 3 p.m. each Monday in the Ferndale-Linthicum Senior Center, 7205 Baltimore & Annapolis Blvd.

Line dancing classes will begin at 10 a.m. on Aug. 2, taught by Doris Sursch. Come and join the group. You don't have to be a senior or belong to the club to participate.

Members and associate members are invited to a covered dish lunch at 11 a.m. Thursday at the senior center. Participate in the "Guess Who This Is?" photo display. Bring along an old picture of yourself and post it on the bulletin board during the luncheon. See how good you are at identifying your friends.

The Roadrunners are sponsoring an afternoon at the Charlestown racetrack on Aug. 11. The cost is $33 and includes bus transportation and a prime rib dinner at the Charlestown clubhouse. Limited seats are available.

A bus trip to the Bavarian Inn in Sheppardstown, W.Va., for a full-course meal is planned for Oct. 13. The trip includes a stop for shopping at the outlets in Martinsburg. The cost is $21 a person, with limited seats available.

Both bus trips are open to the public.

The number to call for information is 761-0484.


If you hear the music of the Glen Miller or Tommy Dorsey bands filling the air around Linthicum Park on Sunday evening, it is the Crabtown Big Band performing as part of the "Concerts in the Park" series. The 6 p.m. show is sponsored by the Women's Club of Linthicum Heights.

This will be the seventh time the Crabtown band will be performing in the 13-year-old concert series. The 18-member swing group presents a concert of pop and big band music from the '40s to the present. The group performs every Wednesday night at the King of France Tavern in Annapolis.

The concert is free and open to the public. Bring your picnic basket and blanket or chair and enjoy the music.

The concert will be canceled in the event of rain. Many residents may like to walk to the concert, but there is parking available at the park or at the adjacent Linthicum Elementary School.

Linthicum Park is on Benton Avenue just off Route 170.

For more information, call Jo Barker at 859-3308 or Delores Schuman at 789-7546.


Angelisa Proserpi, Linthicum's own Miss Maryland Teen USA 1993, leaves today for Biloxi, Miss., to compete in the National Miss Teen USA Pageant 1993.

Angelisa said she is excited and ready to go. "The week before going is referred to as 'Hell Week' by participants. There is so much to do to get ready. My dress isn't done yet, and Murphy's Law seems to be happening," she said Wednesday.

She will be sharing her room with Miss Alaska. "She may want the air-conditioning set too cold, and I'm not used to it at all," Angelisa said with a laugh.

Fifty-one girls, one from each state and the District of Columbia, will compete in three categories: beauty, swimsuit and interview.

On preliminary night, the number of contestants will be whittled to a dozen finalists. These girls will compete on national television. The pageant will be broadcast by CBS at 9 p.m. on Aug. 10, from the Mississippi Coast Coliseum and Convention Center.

Angelisa said that hours of rehearsing, dancing and interviews are scheduled prior to the final judging and telecasting.

A caravan of Angelisa's family, friends and relatives will travel to Biloxi to root her on for the preliminary and final judgings. Her coach, Dawn Siska, will also be there. Good Luck, Angelisa.


Peace Lutheran Church on Welham Avenue in Ferndale announces its Bible study classes for nursery -- ages 3 and 4 -- through adult, will take place from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Sunday through Aug. 6.
