How would you like to stuff 4,526 plastic Easter eggs?

Thirteen civic-minded members of the Crofton Teen Club did just that last Thursday night at Town Hall.

The eggs are for the annual Easter Egg Hunt on March 26.

The youngsters figured on a two- to three-night project, but to everyone's surprise they finished in one evening.

Thanks to Easter Bunny helpers Jonathan Bents, Chrissy Bonaccoursy, Kelly Bowers, Katherine Dorrell, Alisha Dryden, Natalie Edwards, Amber French, Briann French, Kevin Haller, Gene Hoffman, C.J. Kaenning, Sandra Melman and Monica Taylor.

Some of the teen club members will be at the Easter egg hunt to hand out candy and help where needed.

The club meets the first and third Wednesday of the month at Crofton Town Hall from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m.

A dance is planned from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Friday at the Arundel Volunteer Fire Hall on Route 424.

The cost is $3. For information on the dance or the teen group, call Town Hall at 721-2301.

In this age of recycling, what should you do with your old phone book?

You don't want to load up a trash bag, and you don't want to add to the landfill problem.

Telephone directories can be turned into commercial roofing paper, hydromulch and insulation board.

Drop off your old phone book at Crofton Elementary School from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on March 26.
