Glenelg High School seniors are counting the days until graduation. Their prom is May 14, and graduation is May 31.

Parents and friends are invited to attend the junior and senior awards assembly at the school at 8:30 p.m. May 27.

Glenelg High School seniors may apply for three $1,000 Glenwood Lions Club scholarships that the club offers annually to qualified Glenelg students.

The club awards scholarships based on scholastic standing, community service, financial need and other considerations. Students may pick up applications, which must be completed and returned by May 18, in the guidance office.

Senior Girl Scout Troop 1046 of Glenwood is a determined bunch. For three years the young women have set their goals on a July trip to Yellowstone National Park and the great Western Rockies.

They are leaving July 5 on the adventure of a lifetime. This troop serves our community through work with shelters and disabled people of all types. For their service work and their trip, they organize fund-raisers.

This weekend they'll have a car wash at the Sizzler Steak House on U.S. 40 in Ellicott City from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Next weekend, the scouts are sponsoring a yard sale at New Market Shopping Center in New Market from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Table space is available for $15. If you have items to donate, the scouts will pick them up. Call Amy Burns at (301) 854-6673.

Part of being in 4-H is keeping good record books. In fact, record books are so important that they're judged in competition the same as many other club activities.

These area Howard County Senior 4-Her's had Champion Books that will be sent to the state 4-H office for evaluation: Christine Beck, Madeline Beck, Jamie Brand, Jennifer Bly, Justin Brendel, Brenden Bosmans, Alison Brown, Tara Chaudry, Robert Currier, Alex Gralia, Reed Gralia, Brandon Honza, Angie Johnson, Jessica Leatherman, Susan Luchansky, Randy Mullinix, Scott Mullinix, Jason Murray, Heather Rynarzewski, Brian Speight and Susan Speight.

The Fulton, Poplar, and West Friendship 4-H Clubs had Program Planning and Secretary Books for 1993 that were forwarded to the state 4-H office for competition. Club books are judged on content and format. They tell what each club does, how involved their members are and how much service the club offers its community.

The Poplar and West Friendship 4-H clubs will receive outstanding club plaques at the state awards program in June.

Barbara Hubert was frustrated. She is an energetic and willing volunteer who coordinated the Family Fair at Bushy Park Elementary School last week. Her first Family Fair was snowed out in February. Rescheduling speakers and helpers was like starting the planning again.

More than 300 parents and students enjoyed the evening of fun and learning called "Parents and Child: Growing Up Together," because Mrs. Hubert and her army of volunteers persisted.

Among the parents who lent their talents to the fair are Brenda Walker, Portia Woods, Janice Stanton, Beth Goodwin, Sue Neiman, Camilla Jacobs and Beth Cobleigh.

Fifty Clarksville Middle School seventh-graders will make 300 sandwiches on Monday. Under the leadership of teachers Jackie Truitt and Cherry Edgerton-Bird, the group is doing a service project and learning at the same time.

Using a grant from the Board of Education and donations from stores, the students will make food for the homeless at Manor House, a Baltimore shelter. Tuesday they will deliver the sandwiches and tour the shelter.

Linden-Linthicum United Methodist men will have a yard sale from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. Organizers say they'll be happy to accept items you want to donate. You can rent a space for $5, and tables are available for another $5.

The church is located on Route 108 just east of Route 32. Call 531-5653.

Congratulations to Glenwood Middle School student Jodi Ellenwood, who submitted a drawing to the PTA Reflections program.

Students compete in this arts contest at the local, state, and national levels. Jodi's drawing "If I could give the world a gift, I'd give it money, love, happiness and education," was selected from among Glenwood entries to be sent to the Howard County Reflections program.

Jodi's color drawing of a globe won first place for sixth-graders in the county and her drawing is now part of the Maryland State Reflections competition.

These students will take the Maryland School Performance Assessment tests both weeks. Students who are absent or tardy may not make up missed tests.
