The Crofton Scrabble Club has been renamed the Suburbanites Scrabble Club.

The Crofton Athletic Council is having a hard time finding people to sit on the board of directors for next year. With so many people complaining about how the CAC runs its sports programs, you'd think it would be easy to find volunteers. If you want to see things change, call Dorie Folstein at 261-3402. The CAC baseball program also needs a new tournament director. The baseball tournament is a big moneymaker. Without it, fees might have to be raised to make up the shortfall. If you can help, call Jim Parsons at 721-0981.

A job well done to all involved in the election. It did get hot at times, but everyone handled themselves with class.

H. M. Hoover of Burke, Va., author of fantasy and science fiction books for children, will talk about the creative process from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. July 13 at the Crofton Branch of the Anne Arundel County Library. Children will have a chance to meet the author and learn how her books are written.
