Back from Europe

Glenelg High School Jazz Ensemble returned from its trip to Europe exhausted but thrilled with the experience. Not only did the ensemble members have gorgeous weather, according to director Barry Enzman, but the young musicians' group was extremely well received at the North Sea and the Montreaux jazz festivals.

DTC Enzman commented that the students "performed at a caliber worthy of those jazz festivals. They represented the school, our committee and Howard County in a first-class manner."

You are invited to the grand finale of this year's Jazz Band tour, a free concert at the Howard County Fair from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. Aug. 10.

You can support all the members of the Glenelg High School Band and Marching Unit by purchasing fresh fried dough from the Band Boosters' fried-dough stand at the fair, which runs from Aug. 10-17.

Off to Ohio

After a year of waiting, the Regennitter family of Mount Airy is moving to Ohio. With Mary Jo and their three children in Mount Airy trying to sell their house, John was working in Ohio and commuting home some weekends.

Many local families know ninth-grader Molly, eighth-grader Ellen, and third-grader Jimmy. They are a talented family, who have graced our community for five years. Mary Jo volunteered on PTAs at Lisbon Elementary and Glenwood Middle schools, went on field trips, helped with Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts and 4-H and accompanied the Youth Choir at St. Michael's Roman Catholic Church in Poplar Springs.

Friends will miss the Regennitters, and wish them well in Ohio.

Glenelg loss

Bernie Huddlestun of Glenelg passed away last Thursday evening after a long illness. I first met Bernie through the mentor he studied under when he earned a doctorate in philosophy at Catholic University.

Bernie was an artist who worked with wood, taking ancient Chinese forms and inlaying them in rosewood tables and making boats by hand. He was devoted to his son, Bernie Jr., an eighth-grader at Glenwood Middle School. Bernie quietly enriched our community. We will miss him.

New PSTA officers

River Hill High School's new Parent Student Teacher Association members elected officers for its charter year.

Pati Minot will serve as president, assisted by first vice president Donna Kelley and second vice president Sally Oswald. Isabelle Henderson is the group's treasurer.

Casey Willis will act as recording secretary, and Harriet Spadin takes on the duties of corresponding secretary. Lynne Humphries-Russ and Liz Rimkunas will fill the roles of Howard County PTA Council delegates.

River Hill parents and students should remember these dates: Aug. 23 is student orientation day. Students will receive information about orientation times in the mail. At 7 p.m. Aug. 28, the school will hold a ninth-grade parent and guardian night, a time reserved to help parents and guardians of ninth-graders who are adjusting to high school.

River Hill's first PSTA Back-to-School Night begins at 7 p.m. Sept. 4.

Students who wish to register to attend River Hill should call the school's guidance office for an appointment at 313-7400.

Community members who would like to see River Hill may tour the building from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 25.
