August 01, 1994|By ROSALIE M. FALTER

Families are invited to join the Linthicum-Shipley Improvement Association for its first Great American Picnic in the Park Sunday before the U.S. Naval Academy Wind Ensemble concert.

Come to the grandstand area in Linthicum Park from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. for free hot dogs, apple pie, cold drinks and complimentary American flags. You also are welcome to bring your own picnic specialties to enjoy.

The rain date is Aug. 14.

For information, call 859-8026.


Don't forget to wave your American flag as you enjoy one of the community's favorite Concert in the Park presentations.

The 50-member U.S. Naval Academy Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Cmdr. Thomas E. Metcalf, will start playing at 6 p.m. The ensemble is the Navy's oldest continuing musical unit.

"The Naval Academy Ensemble is a very prestigious group and we are so grateful to get them," said Jo Barker, chairwoman of the music committee of the Woman's Club of Linthicum Heights, sponsor of the summer concert series.

Barker, her co-chairwoman, Dolores Schuman, and members of the music committee have been responsible for selecting and scheduling the artists and providing refreshments for them.

The concert will be canceled if it rains.

Speaking of precipitation, if you were disappointed when the Grey, Green and Travers Trio was rained out a few weeks ago, you will be glad to hear that they have been rescheduled to 6 p.m. Aug. 28.

Linthicum Park is on Benton Avenue off Camp Meade Road. Turn at the light by the fire department.

A special anniversary wish to two of our neighbors, George and Pauline Bottiger, who recently celebrated their 60th year together.

They were married in Baltimore on June 2, 1934 and reared two children here.

As a gift to their grandparents, the Bottigers' four grandchildren and two of their spouses treated the couple to a trip to Disney World.

"And, they went along, too," said George Bottiger. "We were eight all together."
