Patuxent Jaycees

The Patuxent Area Junior Chamber of Commerce is gearing up for a more visible presence in our area.

These Jaycees are actively looking for a few -- OK, a lot -- of good men and women interested in serving the community while expanding their own leadership potential. How's that for a goal?

The group recently helped run Savage Fest and helped with the Columbia fireworks display on the Fourth of July.

In other activities, the Jaycees have run a food drive for the Howard County Food Bank and helped with minor repair and yard work with the Howard County Department of Aging.

As if these community-minded activities aren't enough, the group has also had a wine-tasting recently, sponsored a golf lesson for members and a health seminar series. They're going to Baltimore next week for a Baltimore Happy Hour Trip.

This year, the board of directors of the Patuxent Area Junior Chamber of Commerce includes Lynn Boerschel as president, Deby Sweren as chairwoman, Jeff Graham as management vice president, Chris Campedelli as community development vice president, Lori Graham as individual development vice president, Doug Lewis as treasurer, Jeff Tunkle as secretary and Dave Wakefield as newsletter editor.

Anyone with an interest in promoting Jaycee activities or in the leadership opportunities is invited to join the group, which meets every third Tuesday in Columbia. The next meeting will be at 7: 30 a.m. Aug. 20 at Talbot Springs Neighborhood Center.

For more details, write the group at P.O. Box 972, Columbia 21044.

Summer reading games

The Howard County Library runs several summer reading games for area students.

The young adult program raffles off small prizes every week to those who have finished a book and entered a ticket to that effect into the drawing.

Winners of T-shirts, movie passes, music store gift certificates and other goodies last week were Michelle Goddard, Henri Sanders, Rachel Sorensen, Carrie Reichert, Mark Hall, Amira Ezzart, Karen Fernandes, Jean King, Dia Kinnaman, Erin Abram and Weikerken Altema.

There is still plenty of time to register for the game. There's a

whole month left of summer, and great amounts of goodies yet unclaimed. Register at any Howard County library.

Before bedtime

In news from the Savage branch library, remember that next Thursday night is drop-in story-time night.

Young children are cordially invited to this just-before-bedtime story session from 7 p.m. to 7: 30 p.m.

Youngsters are welcome to attend in nightgowns and pj's to make the transition to slumberland easier.

For details and directions, call the branch at (410) 880-5978.

Gymnastics at library

Next Wednesday afternoon, the Savage library will sponsor a gymnastics exhibit by members of the Top Flight Gymnastics Club of Columbia.

This is a terrific opportunity to see what gymnastics look like up close, rather than through the lens of a television camera. Come see tumbling and flights of soaring bodies. This is a drop-in program, so registration is not required.

Children attending should be 6 years or older. The hour program is an opportunity for parents to scout out the magazine collections, browse the new fiction shelves and dally on the Internet, (courtesy of the library computers) without small fry clamoring for attention.

For details and directions, call the library at (410) 880-5978.
