Ice couldn't keep Crofton from dancing


January 25, 1994|By SUE HALLER

It takes a lot more than a week of ice and snow to keep Crofton residents down.

Saturday night lots of our neighbors put on their dancing shoes and kicked off the first party to celebrate Crofton's 30th birthday.

The band Impressions played past 1 a.m. to give everyone the chance to dance away the winter blues. Sue Bents, the community recreation assistant, pronounced the evening a success, and plans are being made for a country-western dance at the end of February.

For information about all birthday events, call Town Hall: 721-2301 or 261-6021.


Hard to imagine, but spring it just around the corner.

The Crofton Athletic Council will hold the first of three walk-in registrations for baseball, softball, T-ball, boys and girls lacrosse and cheerleading for the fall football teams Saturday at Crofton Elementary School.

Sign-up is from 9 a.m. to noon.

If you can't make Saturday's session, there's always Feb. 5 from noon to 3 p.m., and Jan. 12 from 9 a.m. to noon.

You must be registered to try out for a county baseball or softball team. If you cannot make one of these three registration dates, pick up registration forms at Crofton Library or Crofton Town Hall.
