Cub Scout's year of work earns religious medal


March 06, 1996|By Liz Lean | Liz Lean,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

FULFILLING HIS DUTY to God is part of the promise every Cub Scout makes. But not every Scout takes his oath as seriously as Kevin McAliley III of Wilde Lake, a fourth-grade Webelos member of Pack 615.

After a year of work, Kevin last month earned his "Parvuli Dei," or "little child of God" medal, the Webelos' religious medal for Catholic boys.

Cubmaster Pat Hamilton and the Rev. Richard H. Tillman presented the medal to Kevin on Feb. 17 at an afternoon Mass at St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Community at the Oakland Mills Interfaith Center. Assistant Cubmaster Steve Rothwell, a congregation member, also attended.

Jessie and Kevin McAliley Jr. are Kevin's parents.

In other news from Pack 615, several Scouts were recognized for recent achievements at the pack's Feb. 28 Blue and Gold Banquet, an annual event celebrating the anniversary of


Max Annenberg, the pack's newest member, earned his Bobcat badge after only two weeks.

Sam Adams earned a silver arrowhead for requirements he has met since earning his Wolf Badge.

Benjamin Rubin and Jack Tepe received Webelos badges and fitness and communicator activity pins.

Also earning communicator pins were Matt Rothwell, Jason Pine, Ryan Farley, Ryan Pearson and Kevin McAliley III.

A touch of elegance

Some customers gaped, others grinned and waved as they rolled up to the drive-through window at the McDonald's restaurant in the Harper's Choice Village Center on the evening of Feb. 26.

Young women in sequined gowns and glittering tiaras stood behind the restaurant's window smiling and blowing kisses.

They were cast members of Wilde Lake High School at River Hill's production of "Smile!" a musical about a California beauty pageant. And they were among the students and staff members working the dinner shift to raise money to bring the production this summer to the Fringe Festival of Performing Arts in Scotland.

The group raised $425 from the night at McDonald's, said parent Michelle Krieger. Look for news of many other events and sales as the thespians work toward their financial goal.

Food for thought

Fast-food fund-raising comes to the Roy Rogers restaurant at the Wilde Lake Village Green tomorrow night.

Wilde Lake Middle School's PTA will receive 20 percent of all restaurant sales from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Principal Albertha Caldwell and staff members will be working the registers and wiping tables in support of the effort.

The sixth, seventh and eighth grades will compete for the most participation. Two members of the winning class will receive $10 movie passes Friday morning when PTA President Thomas Goines draws their names on the school's "Eye Opener" television program.

Cynthia Ausiejus, PTA fund-raising chairwoman, is coordinating the event.

Software for genealogy

If you have an interest in genealogy and access to a computer, plan to attend a meeting at 7: 30 p.m. March 20 of the Central Maryland Users Group, a club for computer users of all levels of expertise.

The group meets the third Wednesday of each month at the Florence Bain Center in Harper's Choice, said club publicist Mike Kerwin, a River Hill resident. The next meeting will focus on software packages for genealogy buffs.

The club sponsors many activities, including the Lazarus Foundation, which recycles old computers donated by government and businesses and donates them to schools, senior centers and other organizations.

Church celebrates

St. John Baptist Church celebrates its silver anniversary Sunday, with an 11: 45 a.m. worship service at the Wilde Lake Interfaith Center, a 4: 30 p.m. dinner and a 6 p.m. presentation of the original play "Silver Pearls" at Slayton House, the community center in Wilde Lake village.

"A People of Faith -- Past, Present and Future" will be the day's theme.

The Rev. Samuel Dwitt Proctor will be guest speaker at the morning service. Dr. Proctor, who succeeded the Rev. Adam Clayton Powell at the Abyssinian Baptist Church in New York City, is the author of "Young Negro in America."

Leroy Giles directs "Silver Pearls," which traces the growth of St. John Baptist from its beginning in 1970 to the present.

Guest vocalists will include the Rev. Wintley Phipps and the Men's Chorus of Queens Chapel United Methodist Church.

Sandra T. Gray is chairwoman for the event. The Rev. Robert A. F. Turner is pastor.


Twenty-seven students last month participated in Bryant Woods Elementary School's first spelling bee.

Cara Yang captured first place and will represent Bryant Woods this month at a regional competition.

Evita Chi was runner-up.

Meet the superintendent

Don't forget the meeting with county school Superintendent Michael Hickey at 7: 30 p.m. tomorrow at Slayton House.

Dr. Hickey will speak on "Wilde Lake Schools, Today and Tomorrow," then take questions from the audience.

'Coming Attractions'

A sliver of Hollywood glamour is coming to Howard with "Coming Attractions," the sixth fashion show and luncheon presented by the Howard County General Hospital Volunteer Auxiliary.

The show, which has a movie theme, will be held 11: 30 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 17 at Turf Valley Resort and Conference Center.

Segments called "Premiere Night," "On Location" and "Afternoon Matinee" will feature evening, casual and business wear for women and men, said Drew Shifflet, the hospital's manager of volunteer services.

Drs. Patryce Toye, Brenda Brendan, Darlene Marshall, Paul Valove, Richard Nessif and Charles Lancellota are among the physicians who will model fashions.

Elected officials including County Executive Charles I. Ecker and state Sen. Martin G. Madden will take a turn on the runway, along with hospital employees and volunteers such as Jack Whiteside, chairman of the board of trustees.

Louanne Sargent and Christine Coale are co-chairwomen of the event.

Tickets are $25, and can be purchased at the hospital and at Rave Reviews, the auxiliary's consignment shop in the Hickory Ridge Village Center. Proceeds benefit emergency services.
