The Greater Severna Park Council has hung blue ribbons on several park locations that look even better than up to snuff.

Topping the list is the Post Office, whose narrow gardens have been maintained for years by the Severna Park Kiwanis Club in general and Ralph and Shirley Glasgow in particular.

Also, among the who's who in landscaping are the Severn River Garden Club, for its work at the Severna Park Railroad Station, Mama Talis restaurant, Severna Park Flowers and Gifts, Festival Shopping Center, the Carr Building, and the Shell gas stations at Robinson, McKinsey and Benfield roads.

For information, contact Louis Cockerill at 544-4463.

The sixth-grade treble choir won first place and a rating of superior. After the competition, the singers headed for Hershey Park.
