The Odenton Jaycees thank everyone who contributed to the food drive.

Last Saturday, the Jaycees delivered a pickup truck full of food to the First Evangelical Lutheran Church to help needy families. Now that's what you call Christmas spirit!

The Jaycees are selling tickets to the Jan. 14 hockey game between the Washington Capitals and the New Jersey Devils at USAir Arena.

Tickets, which usually sell for $32, are available for $20. Proceeds will benefit the Friends of Literacy Program. For tickets or information, call 551-4439 or 621-9508.
