August 30, 1993|By ROSALIE M. FALTER

Once you have read your magazines and periodicals, do you pile them up in a corner? Put them to good use by donating them to Brooklyn Park/Lindale Middle-Junior High School.

Donated magazines will help to supplement the school's media collection. The school has a list of magazines it wants, on topics that include women's issues, sports, nature, history, news and health.

Drop off donations at the school media center, 200 Hammonds Lane.

The school also is accepting cash donations for periodical subscriptions.

For more information, call the media staff at 789-8500, Ext. 219.

* It seems to happen this time of year. Donations for the needy aren't materializing as they usually do during other seasons.

"Summer seems to be a lax time for donations. The available food supply is low," said Faye Deli, a North County Emergency Outreach Network volunteer and a member of Ferndale United Methodist Church. She and another church member, Earlena Holloway, volunteer two days a month at the center, which provides assistance to neighbors in crisis.

The church has increased its monthly monetary contributions to support NCEON and is helping to resupply the pantry with donations from its own TLC Pantry, said The Rev. Susan Ducheaneau.

The church's TLC Pantry is available for people who come directly to the Ferndale church for assistance, for anyone who can't get to NCEON, or for anyone who needs food on a day when NCEON is not open.

The TLC Pantry chairman is David Dupert. His assistants are Annette Buchanan and Scarllett Brumm.

You can drop off donations to NCEON, 304 5th Ave. S.E. in Glen Burnie on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. during the summer.

Hours will be changed in the fall.

Information: 766-1826.

* Plans are under way for the Fourth Annual Linthicum Country Fair scheduled for Sept. 25 at the St. John's Lutheran Church field at the corner of Maple and Hammonds Ferry roads. Churches, civic organizations and crafters are invited to participate. Proceeds will help to support the North County Emergency Outreach Network.

Nonprofit organizations are asked to donate 15 percent of their profits to NCEON. Crafters can rent a booth for $15.

An organizational meeting is planned for 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at St. John's.

To participate, call Martin Muller at 859-0621, or Carol Frye at 859-5106.

The rain date is Oct. 2.

* Linthicum Chapter 2244 of the American Association of Retired Persons will meet on Thursday at St. John Lutheran Church on Maple Road.

* The Friendly Thyme Herb Club's trip to Connecticut was a big success.

Forty members and friends spent three days touring gardens and museums, and returned home on Thursday with a renewed enthusiasm for their hobby.

No doubt this trip will be the main topic of conversation at the next club meeting at 10 a.m. on Friday at the Ferndale-Linthicum Senior Center, 7205 Baltimore & Annapolis Blvd.

Following a business meeting, each member will make an herb arrangement for a hanging wall pocket. Visitors and prospective members are welcome.
