Nathaniel Alston is acting chairman of the Deacons' Board. The church is at the Interfaith Center in Wilde Lake.

Happy Earth Day to you

About 100 second- and third-graders from Longfellow Elementary School will perform songs about Earth Day at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Harper's Choice Village Center.

The mini-concert, under the direction of music teacher Nancy Terrill, is part of the entertainment that village officials have lined up in hopes of luring residents to voting booths for Columbia Council and village board elections.

Saturday is election day in all Columbia villages. Cast a vote for the people who set the budget and policy for your neighborhood and city.

Changing work force

Flowers and lunches are always welcome, but a more useful way to observe National Secretaries Week is offered Friday by the Association of Community Services of Howard County and Careerscope.

A half-day seminar, "The Changing Workforce: Yes, You Can Cope!", is designed to help administrative and support personnel understand their changing role in today's work force. Mellie Kausal, manager of Manpower Temporary Services' Columbia branch, will speak.

The program will conclude with a workshop on developing a professional image, presented by Charlotte Watchinski, Columbia-area director for Mary Kay Cosmetics.

The cost is $20 for members of the Association of Community Services and $40 for others. Call 730-3710.
