Fire department to greet torch bearers

June 20, 1996

Anne Arundel County Fire Department will welcome Olympic torch runners to Marley Station today with a hook-and-ladder arch over the southbound lanes of Ritchie Highway.

One truck is to be parked on the side of the road by the north entrance to the mall and the other on a median strip, their ladders extending across the highway, said David Casper, mall marketing director.

Coca-Cola, one of the sponsors of the relay, is to set up a celebration site on the mall parking lot with music and promotional giveaways, he said.

The activities start at 7: 30 a.m. The torch is to arrive at 9 a.m.
