Jaycees keep busy while others are on vacation


August 11, 1994|By JONI GUHNE

If we were to look up the definition of vacation, we might read: "The shortest distance between two dates on the calendar." Time flies when each minute counts.

The rest of us may think it's vacation time, but the Severna Park Jaycees are as busy as a flock of sea gulls at an Ocean City french fry stand.

At 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Esther Geil, governor of Annapolis Toastmasters, will join the Jaycees to present a free public speaking seminar in the Kinder Room at the Jaycee Community Center. Information: 757-9660.


If you're in the 21- to 39-year-old category, want to know more about Jaycees and like to eat, you're invited to the Jaycee Crab Feast from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., Aug. 28.

The cost is $16 per person. Everyone is asked to bring a dish. For details, call 544-5189.


Also during the Aug. 28 crab feast, the winner of a drawing for a personal crab feast will be announced. The raffle is to benefit a young Millersville woman who is scheduled for a lung transplant in September. Raffle tickets are $1 each, or six for $5. For information, call 519-0853.


The Greater Severna Park Chamber of Commerce, in cooperation with seven other area business organizations, invites you to its Batter-Up Business Mixer, a combination all-you-can-eat picnic and Bowie Baysox baseball game Aug. 25.

Tickets include a 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. picnic at Rip's Park Place next to the Prince George's Stadium and general admission to the Baysox vs. Reading Phillies game at 7:05 p.m.

Tickets are $15 for chamber members, $25 for others. Children age 5 and under are free.

For information, contact Linda Zahn at 987-6625.


As part of its Treasure Hunt Booklet promotion, the Greater Severna Park Chamber of Commerce, sponsored a drawing at the end of its annual 4th of July Parade.

Judy Capels won the first prize of two round-trip tickets on Continental Airlines to any domestic destination. Bill Prevezanos won second prize, a shopping spree at Severna Park Village.

Audrey Poulton won third prize, a framed print of "The Spirit of Severna Park" by Anne-Marie Esson. Marge Burr picked up the fourth prize, a gift certificate from Zemo's Body and Fender shop.


The Chesapeake Youth Symphony Orchestra will hold auditions Aug. 26 through Aug. 28. for its 1994-95 season.

Musicians can audition for either the Symphony Orchestra open to ages 11-18, or the String Orchestra, open to ages 9 and over. The audition fee is $5, and there is a list of audition requirements and orchestra commitments.

For details and to set an audition time, call Kathleen Silk at 647-7182.


If you would like to mix munching with your crunching, join the Severna Park Walking Club where the reward for all that exercise is a big, fat bagel and a slimmer you.

"Bagel Walkers," a joint venture of North Arundel Hospital and the Chesapeake Bagel Bakery in Severna Park Plaza, steps off from the bakery every half-hour from 6:30 a.m. to 8 a.m. and at 7 p.m. The club's walks are along the Baltimore and Annapolis Bike Trail.

The program features contests, screenings and lectures. To join, stop by the bakery or call North Arundel Hospital at 787-4367.
