Group seeks help from those who appeared in 'Goddess' movie


September 03, 1996|By Jean Leslie | Jean Leslie,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

Because of the Labor Day holiday, the Ellicott City-Elkridge column was delayed until today.

WHAT WERE YOU doing in August 1957? If you were starting your acting career in the crowd scenes in the movie "The Goddess," the Patapsco Female Institute wants to hear from you.

"The Goddess," which featured Kim Stanley and Patty Duke, was filmed in Ellicott City. On Sept. 20 and 21, the PFI will be screening "The Goddess" for community members and it is inviting people who can reminisce about the making of the movie.

If you were in the movie or know someone who was, call (410) 465-8500 to make plans to share your stories. Ask for Sally Bright or Meryl Carmel.

I am saddened to hear that Carmel will be leaving our area as the result of a family job transfer. Her creative and diligent administration of the PFI's first year laid the foundation for a strong, successful museum.

Police in the park

The Howard County Police Pace, a 5-kilometer or 1-mile Walk/Run, is being held Sunday for the fifth time. This year it will take place in Centennial Park off Route 108 in Ellicott City.

Awards for the race will be given by age group, male and female, and "Top Cop." Food and random prizes will complete the morning, which begins at 8 a.m.

The event is being held for the benefit of the Howard County Police Foundation, a scholarship program that ensures children of fallen officers of a complete education.

Registration, which includes a race T-shirt, is $15 per individual or $25 for a family. Pick up a registration form at the Howard County Library or call (800) 820-6564. Although registration will take place from 6: 30 a.m. to 7: 45 the day of the event, you might not get a T-shirt.

Call Cpl. John Newnan at Howard County Police Department for information, 313-3700.

PTA boards at work

Two more PTA executive boards have reported for duty. These folks are to be commended for the hard work they'll be putting in this school year.

Manor Woods Elementary School PTA will include president Chris Gilliam, vice presidents Carol Grady and Terry Beckmann, treasurer Charyl Breidenstein, recording secretary Karen Erbe, corresponding secretary Dave Phillips, PTA Council delegates Laura Barnes and Anne Collins, and immediate past president Mary Catherine Cochran.

The Dunloggin Middle School executive board includes president Ralph Dello-Russo, vice presidents Bonnie Krill and Jackie Harrell, recording secretary Nancy Holmwood, corresponding secretary Susan Meyers, treasurer Karen Hussey and Citizen's Advisory Council delegate Judy Phibbs.

Classes offered

The start of the school year offers everyone a chance to start something new or learn another skill. Here are some class ideas that have come across my desk:

The Tiber-Hudson Watershed Partnership has planned a workshop to teach environmentalists how to plan, organize and conduct a successful short conservation event.

The workshop is offered in the Department of Recreation and Parks flier. The course covers such issues as volunteer recruitment and management, project development and evaluation, communication and trouble-shooting.

The course costs $5, and participants will be asked to volunteer to work on events.

Call (410) 313-4658 for details.

Howard County Library celebrates our diversity by offering an adult program called "The Cultural Fabric of America." This reading and discussion series will be held at the Miller Branch Library alternate Tuesdays beginning Sept. 17, and includes one night each on a literary work involving experiences from various ethnic backgrounds.

Registration begins today. Call (410) 313-1950 for details.

Elkridge Senior Center offers its fall session of "Fit, Fun and Healthy" beginning Sept. 16. Twice-a-week exercise classes for less-mobile seniors are on Mondays and Wednesdays, and the regular level will be offered Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Thanks to a grant from St. Agnes Hospital's Mission Services, the fee for 24 classes is $24.

Transportation is available for those who need it; notify the center by Friday.

Register at the new Senior Center, in the Elkridge library building, between 9: 30 a.m. and 2 p.m. The fee must accompany registration. Call (410) 313-4930 for information.
