Cancer Society needs help for sales on Daffodil Days


March 11, 1994|By KATHY SUTPHIN

Mount Airy resident Fran Conaway has an army of volunteers assisting with the American Cancer Society's 1994 Daffodil Days, but more troops are needed for street sales on March 17, 18 and 19.

The Carroll County Unit's 1994 order of 164 boxes -- 82,000 daffodil buds -- will be delivered locally Wednesday, according to Mrs. Conaway. For the next three days, volunteers from Union Bridge to Eldersburg will be selling soon-to-bloom golden bouquets for a donation of $4 for 10 buds. This is in addition to pre-ordered bouquets that will be delivered or picked up at arranged sites.

Locations for indoor and outdoor street sales, which will be held at various times from March 17 to 19, include: Jubilee Foods in Union Bridge; 7-Eleven and New Windsor State Bank in New Windsor; Liquor Barn in Taneytown; Festival Foods in Manchester; Country Greetings in Finksburg Plaza; the Co-op, Giant Food, Super Fresh and Wal-Mart in Westminster; and Carrolltown Center in Eldersburg.

A donation of one or two hours selling daffodils at these locations will be greatly appreciated, said Mrs. Conaway. "Many volunteers from all areas of Carroll County help make this project an annual success," she said. "Every contribution of time makes it possible for the Cancer Society to provide patient services, education programs and research."

Anyone who would like to help Mrs. Conaway and her network of volunteers with daffodil street sales should call her as soon as possible at (410) 875-2252.


Fans of the glorious spring musicals presented by the South Carroll High Stagelighters will have to wait two more months for the school's 1994 production.

"Guys and Dolls" will be presented by the drama club May 5, 6 and 7 at the high school. Vocal rehearsals are in progress, and full rehearsals will begin next week, said Jan Goodell.

Known fondly as "Miss Jan" to present and past South Carroll High students, Mrs. Goodell has spent countless volunteer hours planning, creating and coordinating costumes, props and makeup for Stagelighter productions.

This year's musical will feature costumes and settings that should be familiar to fans of the early "I Love Lucy" television shows, she said.

Faculty members who are again volunteering countless hours to make the production a reality include: director Mike Hoover, music director Kevin King, set designer Terry Eckard, and Sandra Reger chairman of ticket sales, refreshments and T-shirts.

Information on curtain times and ticket sales will be publicized when available.


Snow and ice have wreaked havoc with Mount Airy's Community Lenten Lunches, scheduled at noon Wednesdays at Calvary United Methodist Church.

A storm canceled this week's luncheon as well as those on Feb. 23 and March 2.

Basil Day of Ridgeville-Howard Chapel United Methodist Church; March 23, the Rev. Robert D. Herzog of St. James Episcopal Church; and March 30, the Rev. Bud Lusk of Full Gospel Church.

There is no charge for the Lenten Lunches, which are sponsored by several Mount Airy churches and held in Calvary's Fellowship Room from noon to 1 p.m. A free-will offering will be collected to benefit Mount Airy NET.

Baby-sitting will be available after the meal. Information: 301-829-0358.
