Villages join to sponsor candidates forum tonight at Oakland


October 26, 1994|By LARRY STURGILL

The West Columbia villages of Dorsey's Search, Harper's Choice, Hickory Ridge, River Hill, Town Center and Wilde Lake have joined together to sponsor a candidates forum to be held at 7:30 p.m. today at Oakland, 5430 Vantage Point Road.

With the November elections approaching and the current political climate in Howard County in an apparent state of flux, tonight's forum, featuring the candidates for county executive, county council, state Senate and House of Delegates, should provide some informative fireworks.

The format calls for a brief, three-minute statement from each of the candidates, to be followed by a question and answer period.

Seating is limited, so it may be a good idea to arrive a little early.

Refreshments will be served after the the forum.


Parents of youngsters between the ages of 12 months and 3 years are welcome to attend a free lecture for parents at Kahler Hall at 7 p.m. Nov. 3. The subject is "Terrible Twos Survival."

The lecture is presented by Brenda Hussey-Gardner, who will explore the social and emotional development of children during this trying time, and will offer suggestions on how parents should handle the terrible twos.

Although the lecture is free, toy donations for children 12 months and older will be accepted for the University of Maryland NICU Clinic.

For additional information, or to register, please call 730-0770.


There will be a musical treat for the whole family tomorrow night at Harvester Baptist Church, located at Old Annapolis and Columbia roads, across from Dorsey Search Village Center.

The church will present a concert by the Symphonic Band from Bob Jones University, in Greenville, S.C. The performance, beginning at 7 p.m., will feature sacred and patriotic songs.

Information: 997-4992.


Another musical treat is the 2nd Annual Golden Oldies Benefit Concert at Atholton High School on Nov. 12.

The concert, to benefit the AHS music department, will feature some of the best known singing groups of the 1950s and 1960s, the Duprees, the Drifters and the Classics.

Tickets are $20, and two performances are scheduled, at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m.

Information: 531-1466.


The Halloween Party presented by the River Hill Community Association was inadvertently left out of the list published in this column last week.

Costumed children are invited to Pointer's Run Elementary School from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 30 to enjoy cider, doughnuts and a magic show.

Call 730-7721 for additional information.
