Martin Muller, chairman of the Linthicum Country Fair, says the September fair was a success. The benefit, sponsored by civic organizations, churches and clubs, made $985 for the North County Emergency Outreach Network, a 50 percent increase over last year's total.

Every nonprofit group that participated contributed 15 percent of its profits to NCEON. The Friendly Thyme Herb Club and the Linthicum-Shipley Improvement Association exceeded the expected amount. The Crestwood Improvement Association, which did not participate this year, still made a donation.

He also thanks Miss Maryland Teen USA Angelisa Proserpi for participating in the fund raiser.

Muller said the committee already has started to work on next year's fair, planned for Oct. 15. Organizers hope to add a parade to the entertainment.

If interested in participating, call Muller at 859-0621.
