There's still time to sign up for sports


February 22, 1994|By SUE HALLER

The weekend's warm weather brought people out in their yards and meant a good turnout for the final Crofton Athletic Council spring sports registration session.

However, if the sunny skies encouraged you to head for the great outdoors beyond the neighborhood and you missed the sign-up, don't fret. All you need to do is stop by Crofton Town Hall or head over to the Crofton Library and pick up a registration form.

For more information, call 261-0196.


Congratulations to Crofton resident Roger L. Neal, who has been selected to lead the 148 volunteer firefighters and emergency medical technicians of the Arundel Volunteer Fire Department.

He is nationally certified as a fire officer by the National Board of Fire Service Professional Qualifications. He has been certified by the Maryland Fire Service Professional Qualification Board and is registered and certified as an EMT by the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services.

The department serves Crofton, Davidsonville and portions of Gambrills. It also provides fire and rescue services to portions of northern Bowie, as part of a mutual aid agreement between Anne Arundel and Prince George's counties.
