Greater Severna Park Chamber of Commerce gets busy with golf classic, other events


March 14, 1996|By Joni Guhne | Joni Guhne,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

APPARENTLY Alfred Hitchcock has returned to conduct auditions for a remake of "The Birds."

At least every starling on the East Coast thinks so.

For the past two weeks, the central county has been inundated with noisy blackbirds waiting to be discovered as the next Edgar Allan Poe's raven or Woody Woodpecker.

Do you suppose the NBC peacock got started this way?

Busy chamber

The Greater Severna Park Chamber of Commerce is as busy as a bunch of robins on a spring morning. The chamber's second annual Golf Fore Business Classic is scheduled for May 28 at Walden Golf Club.

The chamber is also working on its annual Fourth of July Parade. This year's theme is "Let's Celebrate Freedom Proud to be an American."

For details, contact Mary James at 544- 6654.

The chamber will publish its 1996 business guide in the spring. Last year's edition was distributed to 18,000 homes.

Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. has donated $600 to the chamber to help refurbish the community meeting room in the chamber's new office building at 1 Holly Ave. in Severna Park.

In addition to the community room and offices, the building has a visitors center.

For questions concerning all chamber activities, call executive director Linda Zahn at 987-6625.
