Volunteer Work: Mrs. Mitchell is president of the Severn Town Club. She has been a member of the organization for eight years, participating in activities that raise money for other charitable groups and organizations.

Recent months have seen her helping to organize the 30th annual Holly Ball at the Annapolis Ramada Inn Saturday.

Proceeds will benefit the Hospice of the Chesapeake and the Rebecca M. Clatanoff Women's Pavilion at Anne Arundel Medical Center.

Volunteer's comment: "The club gets involved in a lot of community work, such as Christmas in April, feeding the homeless and making contributions to Hospice of the Chesapeake, YWCA Battered Spouse Program, Lighthouse Shelter, Helping Hand and other groups.

"We have 95 very active and very talented members. There are no particular requirements. We just ask that you stay active."

About the volunteer: A former resident of Annapolis, Mrs. Mitchell is married and works in the legal Department of UNC Inc. in Annapolis.

In addition to her work with the Severn Town Club, Mrs. Mitchell and her husband, William, have been participants in a Naval Academy program that has area residents "adopting" a midshipman during their stay at the academy. This offers midshipmen the opportunity to take a break from campus life and experience the comforts of a "home-like" atmosphere. The last midshipman the Mitchells sponsored was from South Carolina and graduated last year.

About the organization: The Severn Town Club, a nonprofit organization established in 1937, meets the third Thursday of each month, September through May, at the Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts in Annapolis.

For more information about membership in the club, phone 757-0322. For information or reservations for the Holly Ball, phone 757-4320 or 544-0121.
