A free program on mental health will be presented April 13 by representatives of the American Daycare Treatment Center of Anne Arundel County at the O'Malley Senior Center.
The program will explore the four principles of mental wellness for the mature person.
After the 11 a.m. presentation, participants will have an opportunity to meet individually with the representatives. All residents over age 55 are invited.
The senior center is 1275 Odenton Road in Odenton. For information, call 222-6227 or 621-9515.
* The center also will be the site of a 55 Alive driving course April 7 and 8.
This two-day course was designed by the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) to help older drivers improve their driving and accident-prevention skills. An additional benefit may be a reduction in insurance rates (insurance company policies vary).
The course will run each day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. A registration fee of $8 will cover the text and any materials. Payment by check or money order made out to AARP must be submitted before the first session.
The members of Ark and Dove Presbyterian Church will be going out again -- hammers and paint brushes in hand -- to work on a Habitat for Humanity home.
Habitat for Humanity, a mission program supported by the church, constructs housing for low-income families.
The sign-up sheet for the April 9 workday is at the entrance of the church. Participants will be leaving around 8:30 a.m. and return midafternoon.
If you would like to learn more about Habitat, come to the adult education class Sunday at 9:15 a.m. to hear guest speaker Jeff Gallagher.
The church is at 1350 Blair Drive, Suite G, Odenton. You can receive more details by calling Peggy Whitmire at 301-621-9329 or Paul Whong at 410-360-6727.
The Fort Meade Retired Officers Wives Club monthly luncheon will be at 11 a.m. next Tuesday at the Fort Meade Officers' Club.

Please remember that reservations are required for all luncheons. Call your area reservations member or chairwoman Louise Giddings at 410-647-0945 by Thursday.
Music will fill the Odenton Branch April 19 when the popular duo "Magpie" performs.
The Takoma Park musicians -- Greg Artzner and Terry Leonino -- were hits last year during the Summer Reading Program.
The 7 p.m. performance will feature catchy upbeat songs to celebrate the earth and how we can help preserve it.
Bring the whole family for this free show. Copies of Magpie's recordings will be on sale afterward.
