SEVERNA PARK lost one of its most devoted residents Sunday night with the death of Hammond S. Carr. He was a lifelong Severna Park resident, civic activist and member of the Severn River Association who operated his own real estate firm, Hammond S. Carr Associates. Our love and sympathy are extended to Skip's wife, Janey, and their family.
Celebrate Severna Park with your friends and neighbors from 3 p.m. to 6: 30 p.m. Sept. 29 at Hatton-Regester Green.
Our newest park is next to the B&A Trail Park, adjacent to the old Severna Park railroad station.
On the property is a small white building that has been restored for community meetings. The building also houses the new Greater Severna Park Chamber of Commerce office, which will be open for tours.
Music will be provided by the Severna Park High School Windjammers swing band (whose sound resembles that of the Glen Miller band); the Severna Park Bums, a vocal and instrumental group; former Hard Traveler Mack Bailey, who often performs at the Maryland Inn; and the Spa Creek Band, which plays music of the 1930s and 1940s.
Refreshments from Adam's Rib North, Baskin-Robbins, Chilly Willy's, Garry's Grill and Vera's Bakery and Cafe will be available, as well as the Celebrate Severna Park print, Nelson Molter's "History of Severna Park," and advance copies of the new "Severna Park Reflections."
The Association for Severna Park Improvement, Renewal and Enhancement Inc. is sponsoring the event.
Annual memberships in the association are $25. Join before Sept. 29 and receive a raffle ticket for a $1,000 prize ($500 to the winner and $500 to the winner's favorite local charity).
The celebration is free, but donations will be accepted. Entertainment is being provided with the assistance of a grant from the county Cultural Arts Foundation.
Rotary golf tourney
Two of central county's hardest-working and most-generous civic organizations are the Severna Park Rotary Club and the Kiwanis Club of Severna Park.
The Rotary Club has scheduled its annual golf tournament for Sept. 30 at Chartwell Country Club. This is Rotary's largest fund-raiser of the year.
The entry fee for individual golfers is $125; for a foursome, $440. It costs $150 to sponsor a hole.
Information: Randy Robey at (410) 626-2146 or 987-3133, or Scott Lawson at (410) 923-2324 or 923-0709.
Members of the Kiwanis Club returned from their 15th annual picnic in Downs Park for Crownsville State Hospital patients and supervisors with a giant card of appreciation.
The K in "thank-you" formed the Kiwanis logo, and the card was signed by many of the 130 patients and staff who attended the outing.
