Woman's club to open new season Tuesday


September 08, 1996|By Rosalie Falter | Rosalie Falter,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

THE WOMAN'S CLUB of Linthicum Heights begins a new season with an opening tea at 10: 30 a.m. Tuesday at the clubhouse on Hammonds Ferry Road.

"A Celebration of Women: The Way We Were" is the theme. Remembering the attire of the 1940s and 1950s, members will wear hats and white gloves for the occasion. Marge Boschert and her committee are decorating the clubhouse with photographs of members and other items from those decades.

New members will be installed by Jenny Kuhn, first vice president. They are Joyce Burke, Patricia Grisham, Barbara Bunger, Barbara Anderson and Alice Birx.

A short business meeting will be conducted. Committee chairwomen will give short presentations, and the yearly Innisbrook wrapping paper fund-raiser will be introduced. Members are asked to bring small items suitable for bingo prizes to be given to the Allegis Nursing Center.

Guests and prospective members are welcome. For information, call Betty Brown, president, at 859-8899.

Hospice facility to open

The Linthicum facility of the Hospice of the Chesapeake on Camp Meade Road is looking forward to a fall opening, according to Allison Alexander, community relations director for the hospice.

A date hasn't been set because the bulk of the interior work is being done by volunteers giving what time they can.

Individuals and community groups have given time, talent and materials. Among the groups that contributed is the Linthicum Rotary Club, which sponsored a yard sale this year in conjunction with the Woman's Club of Linthicum Heights. The sale raised $1,000.

A number of students from North County and other high schools helped with construction work, and members of the Woman's Club of Linthicum Heights and the Ferndale Garden Club have volunteered to do landscaping.

Drywall construction and painting is being done, according to Kathy Colvin, who, with her sister, Laura West, is coordinating the interior design work.

Help is still needed. Call Colvin at 239-4620 to volunteer.

Alarmers' fund-raiser

The Anne Arundel Alarmers Association of Ferndale will serve refreshments at a fund-raiser sponsored by the Pascal Senior Center and the county Department of Aging's "A-Team" for the Alzheimer's Association of Central Maryland.

A Celebrity Mini Golf Tournament and other outdoor challenges will be held from 4 p.m. to 6: 30 p.m. Sept. 17. The rain date is Sept. 19.

Norman Vogel of WJZ-TV, Channel 13, will be master of ceremonies at the event at the Pascal Center on Dorsey Road.

The fee is $5 per event. Prizes will be awarded. The pre-registration deadline is Tuesday.

To register or for more information, call 222-6680.
