With onset of spring, get into your swing


March 01, 1994|By VICKI WELLFORD

Spend some spring mornings learning the game of golf or brushing up on your strokes with Anne Arundel Community College instructor Ed Dosek.

Dosek will provide pointers on seven consecutive Tuesday mornings beginning April 5. Classes will run from 10 a.m. to noon.

The first lesson will be at the O'Malley Senior Center, 1275 Odenton Road, with other lessons scheduled for the Fort Meade Golf Course and the Severna Park driving range.

There is no charge, but registration is required.

* Yvonne Hicks will speak at the O'Malley center at 10 a.m. March 22 about "Life Line," the county Department of Aging's Telephone Assurance Program. Hicks will explain how this free program, conducted by volunteers, provides a daily check-up call to elderly residents who live alone.

* The senior center also is sponsoring a seminar on estate planning from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. March 25.

Local lawyer Ray Van Sweringen will explain an estate plan using the living trust as the primary vehicle to save money. He will explain how a living trust avoids probate and guardianship, speeds distribution of funds, can reduce or eliminate taxes and can provide for you during periods of disability. There is no fee for this program, however registration is required.

* The center is accepting registration for the Anne Arundel Community College/Continuing Education Classes, Cycle IV, through March 11 from 9 a.m. to noon.

The center is offering a wide range of courses in the arts (oil painting, drawing, watercolor and portraiture), languages (beginning and intermediate French and Spanish), creative arts (ceramics, decorative stitchery and sewing) and physical fitness (low-impact aerobics, morning stretch, armchair exercise, ballroom dance, tap dancing and yoga).

There is no tuition for seniors 60 years and older, although there is a registration fee of $20 for the 10-week cycle.
