Room to be named for housing activist

May 13, 1994

The Annapolis Housing Authority will dedicate a multipurpose room in a new recreation center tonight to the memory of Sheridan Delight Chase, a long-time housing activist.

The room will be in the Harbour House-Eastport Terrace Recreation Center at 1014 President St.

The room will be named for Ms. Chase, who served as tenant council president and head of the Residents Advisory Board from July 1989 to February 1992, shortly before her death from cancer.

"She really went the extra mile," said Darlene Downs, administrative assistant to the Housing Authority's director of resident services.

The dedication ceremony will begin at 6 p.m. An awards banquet honoring the Housing Authority's youth basketball teams will follow.

The banquet will celebrate the record of the boys' under-15 team, which was undefeated, and recognize the 72 players on the six teams for ages 9 to 12.

$2,600 in cash, checks stolen from truck

Annapolis police are investigating the theft of $2,600 in cash and checks left in a truck Tuesday night.

Brynne Bonne Lincoln, 31, the bookkeeper for Harry Browne's restaurant at 66 State Circle, told police that she left a bank bag containing the restaurant's money in the console of her truck when she went home Tuesday.

She parked the truck outside her home in the 100 block of Acton Road about 5 p.m. and locked the doors, she said.

She told police that the truck's doors were still locked the next morning, and she did not discover that the money was missing until she drove to work about 7:30 a.m.

According to the police report, there were no signs of forced entry into the vehicle.
