Parade, other activities fill calendar


May 10, 1994|By SUE HALLER

If your neighborhood seems quiet this week and the fast-food restaurants are a bit busier, it's probably because of the full schedule of community activities.


Instead of saving the best for last, let me start by reminding everyone about Saturday's huge Armed Forces Day parade.

Marchers will step off at 10 a.m. from Crofton Woods Elementary School. From there the parade route follows the inner loop past Crofton Country Club before turning onto Duke of Kent Drive and into the parking lot at Crofton Elementary School.

Parade organizer Sue Bents says participants include two color guards and military vehicles from Fort Meade, the Arundel High School Band and bands from four out-of-state high schools, McGruff the Crime Dog, two K-9 units, vehicles from the Arundel Volunteer Fire Company, elected officials and candidates, Crofton Athletic Council players and the Crofton Police Department, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary.

The parade will be held, weather permitting.


Tomorrow is election day to choose two members for the Crofton Athletic Council board of directors.

The polls will open at 8 p.m. at Crofton Town Hall on Duke of Kent Drive.

To qualify to vote you must be a dues-paying council member.


Speaking of elections, the time is near to choose Crofton Civic Association officials.

A candidates night will be held at 7:30 p.m. Monday. with elections May 23.

Voting will be from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the lobby of Crofton Elementary School, with a town meeting set for 8 o'clock the same night.


The Greater Crofton Community-Based Schooling Committee will request planning and engineering money from the County Council during public hearings this week.

The first budget session is at 7:30 tonight at Old Mill High School, and the second is at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the County Council chambers in the Arundel Center, Annapolis.

If you would like to see a West County high school built soon, plan to attend one of the meetings. Crofton's resident lobbyists, dressed in red, will supply banners to those who would like them. For more information, call 721-4395.

The group also will hold a meeting at 7 p.m. May 18 at Crofton Middle School to discuss short-term measures to alleviate crowding at the middle school, which is about 145 students over capacity. All options will be explained at this meeting. This will be the group's final survey and your last chance to specify which option you would prefer in redistricting.


The group, Children with Attention Deficit Disorders, will meet at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Crofton Elementary School, Duke of Kent Drive.

Dr. Peter Jensen will discuss research in attention deficit and hyperactivity disorders.

The United Methodist Women of Community United Methodist Church will hold a Trash and Treasure Sale from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. May 21 in the fellowship hall.
