NEIGHBORS

February 23, 1994|By BONITA FORMWALT

Don't expect to find any golf carts or caddies at the Indoor Golf Tournament and Bull Roast Friday at Michael's Eighth Avenue.

"Actually it's a glorified putt-putt course," admitted Carl Hein III, a member of the Rotary Club of Glen Burnie. "But it's a lot of fun."

This is the third year the club has played host to an indoor fund-raiser. The new location at Michael's will give golfers a chance to play a new course, complete with a curved stairway.

The shotgun tee is set for 6:30 p.m.

Proceeds from the tournament will benefit the club's sponsorship of the "Take Back Our Streets" program, the "Healthy Generations" program and the Harundale Youth and Family Center.

Registration is $50 for an individual or $200 for a foursome. The fee includes an open bar from 6:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m and a bull roast served from 8:30 to 11 p.m.

In addition to several door prizes, awards will be given for the Best Foursome, Ladies' Best, Men's Best, and to the winner of the "Hole In One" contest.

For ticket information, call Mark Potter, 553-0660, or Carl Hein III, 544-2457.

Mark Baumgardner of Allstate Alarms, Jones Intercable and Bob Penick of The Sun's Anne Arundel County operation were honored by the Northern Anne Arundel County Chamber of Commerce for their contributions.

The awards were presented at Saturday at the chamber's Presidential Evening and Changing of Guard.

A past president and lifetime board member of the chamber, Baumgardner's work within the business community earned him the title "Business Person of the Year." From affordable housing to Glen Burnie's Centennial Ball to current legislative action, Baumgardner's commitment to improving the community's business base covers a wide spectrum. He also is the co-founder and charter president of the Maryland Burglar and Fire Alarm Association of Anne Arundel County.

"Everywhere you turn, he's there," is how chamber Director Pam Kaizar describes "Citizen of the Year" Bob Penick. When the chamber stepped in to take over the county's annual Halloween Safety Party, Penick was a leader among the volunteers who contributed their time and energy to guarantee continuation of the tradition.

His work within the community extends to the county Cultural Arts Foundation, the county Human Relations Advisory Board, the Business Education Partnership Committee and Junior Achievement.

"A willingness to give to the community they serve" was the primary reason behind the selection of Jones Intercable as the chamber's "Business of the Year."

In 1993, the company launched a show to highlight community events and information. Jones was a key contributor to the chamber's annual Christmas Party for needy children. In addition, the company produced a public service spot and helped coordinate the publicity for the event.

Winter must almost be over. The Glen Burnie YMCA has begun registration for its spring programs.

The center, at 8 Central Ave., offers fitness and fun for the whole family.

Other classes for children include a Korean-style martial arts class taught by Dennis Gawronski, and a beginning ballet class.

Younger children and their parents can enjoy "Mommy and Me/Daddy and Me," an interactive play group for children ages 18 months to 3 years.
