Can your house pass emergency quiz?

NEIGHBORS

April 19, 1994|By NATALIE HARVEY

Kings Contrivance Village's Crown Prints newsletter published an emergency quiz which is applicable to every household.

If an emergency vehicle were called to your home:

1. Would it be able to find your house?

2. Is your house number clearly visible from the street?

3. Is there easy access for the vehicle to get to your home?

4. Are cars parked legally or would they delay an emergency team?

If your home has a long driveway, consider posting your house number near the street. Guidelines are available from each village covenant adviser for house number location and the color of house numbers.

Barry Palmer, physical education teacher at Stevens Forest Elementary School in Oakland Mills, received the Washington Post's Agnes Meyer award for "Outstanding Teacher of the Year" at ceremonies last night.

He has taught at Stevens Forest since 1974 and has directed the school's annual drama production for 13 years. In addition, he coordinates Field Day, an after-school rocket club, and is involved in lots of other school activities.

Last Friday was designated Barry Palmer Day at the school, with students wearing their interpretation of his school uniform and making gold Olympic medals for him. The luncheon menu was named for him and the lobby display case contained Barry Palmer memorabilia.

Dads and their kids can make a one-of-a-kind picture frame for Mothers Day gifts on May 1 at the Columbia Art Center in Long Reach Village Shopping Center.

They should bring a favorite photograph and will learn how to make a unique frame. Since turnabout is fair play, moms and their kids will have an opportunity to create a colored marbled handkerchief at a Fathers Day workshop on June 12.

Both workshops are 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and the $20 fee for each includes Art Center materials. The fee is $26 for non-residents.

Information: 730-0075.

Eastern High School in Long Reach Village is closer to becoming a reality, with an opening set for the fall of 1996.

The $21 million project will include a three-story, 234,000 square-foot building with a central atrium. The auditorium will seat 700 and there will be 450 parking spaces with bus parking used for evening events.

Home team seating will be 1,400 and visitors will be 1,000 for athletic events.

And, good news, the copper beech tree across from the school site, estimated to be 180 years old, will be protected from construction damage!
