June 23, 1994|By JONI GUHNE

The Severna Park Jaycees made a bit of local history this month when Anne Magrath was installed as the chapter's 36th executive officer, the first woman to hold the job.

"This is a year of change for the chapter," says Magrath, a Glen Burnie resident and art director for Prudential Preferred Properties. "We will be doing more high-impact projects that will affect the community. We're really excited about programs like Partners in Care at North Arundel Hospital."

The Jaycees have joined North Arundel in Partners in Care, an organization based at the hospital that provides assistance to the community. Volunteers help with transportation, shopping, home maintenance and other chores.

The rest of the 1994-1995 slate of officers is: Bill DeHoff of Severna Park, management vice president; Susan Smith of Severna Park, community development vice president; Janet Munro of Annapolis, individual development vice president; Tim Edwards of Severna Park, state director; and Tim Capps of Severna Park, community development director.

The Jaycees meet at 8 p.m. the second Tuesday of the month at the Jaycee Community Center in Kinder Park. Adults ages 21 to 39 are welcome. Information: 787-0043.

The center, at 144 Upper Kinder Road in the park just off Jumpers Hole Road, can be rented by organizations for a nominal fee that is used to cover utilities and maintenance. There are kitchen facilities, and there's plenty of room inside and out. Information: 544-9068.


Nurses in the Pediatric Unit at North Arundel Hospital made a wish and it was heard by members

of the Heartfriends Circle of Severna Park United Methodist Church.

The circle, represented by Kay Klovstad and Linda Skidmore, presented the nurses with just what they needed: a baby stroller.

Although the hospital welcomes donations, the pediatric unit cannot accept stuffed toys (for reasons of hygiene). It is happy to receive games and books (new or in good condition), and craft items. Information: 787-4375.


To augment your elementary-age child's interest in books, county branch libraries are sponsoring events that coincide with the Summer Reading Program, which continues through Aug. 20.

program will be presented at 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. June 30 at the Broadneck branch and at 1:30 and 3 p.m. July 7 at the Severna Park branch.

Lloyd Tydings of the Nature Company in Annapolis will have some of his long, skinny pets with him when he talks about snakes and how they eat and grow. He visits the Broadneck branch at 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. July 6 and the Severna Park branch at the same times on Aug. 4.

The reading program is free, and there are also activities available for preschoolers. Information: 222-7371.
