Peggy Colt of Edgewater and Doris Dunker of Severna Park.

Volunteer Work: Mrs. Colt and Mrs. Dunker, members of thSevern Town Club, are co-chairwomen for the club's annual "Red Stocking Follies" benefit show at the Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts in Annapolis. The proceeds will help pay for Maryland Hall remodeling and renovations.

Peggy Colt: "The directors -- Doug and Sheery Kay Yetter -- are very talented. Some of us are not professionals, but by the time they get it together, we look pretty good. It's been a lot of work, but it's been a lot of fun. Both Doris and I love to perform."

Doris Dunker: "The cast includes many professionals who have donated their time. The show has music from the '40s, a piano medley, tap dancing, a whole section of Gershwin, a politically correct minstrel show and patriotic music in the end."

About the volunteers: Mrs. Colt, a county resident for more than 35 years, joined the Severn Town Club eight years ago after performing in the follies.

"Peg and I are best buddies. I don't know how much closer you can get," Mrs. Dunker said.
