Use of Rouse parcel on agenda of Savage association Nov. 12


November 01, 1996|By Lourdes Sullivan | Lourdes Sullivan,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

IT'S TIME again for the civic-minded among us to exercise our votes. So, if you're registered, go out and vote.

There's also more to civic life than just voting. There's keeping abreast of changes in the community. That's why the Savage Community Association exists. Bill Waff extends an invitation to all Savage residents to attend the next meeting of the SCA at 7: 30 p.m. Nov. 12 in Carroll Baldwin Hall.

On the agenda is a discussion of the proposed mixed use of the Rouse property at Interstate 95 and Gorman Road. Whatever is built will have a noticeable impact. There are issues such as traffic, noise and increased population to be addressed. The SCA is actively soliciting opinions about this development.

The SCA also will begin planning the annual Savage Fest. This is a low-key community parade, fair and block party scheduled in early June. As always, the SCA is looking for people with ideas, suggestions and a willingness to help.

Finally, the SCA board is looking for a few new members willing to show up at the one-hour monthly meetings during the school (( year. For details, directions or comments about community issues, call Bill Waff at (301) 725-1089.

Scout troop's 50th

There is more to civic life than participating in politics. There is also participating in works that improve everyone's quality of life, such as Boy Scout Troop 424. Next month, the troop celebrates its 50th year. The current roster of 45 Scouts honors its past and present members at a dinner Nov. 9. The dinner will be in memory of Everett Phelps, the troop's founder and its Scoutmaster for 25 years. In the half-century of its existence, the troop has produced eight Eagle Scouts -- Scouting's highest rank. Five of these eight will attend the dinner.

The troop has mostly succeeded in tracking down former members. But it needs a help finding some former members, namely David Rosten, David Lunsford, Edward Cantebury, James Meushaw, James Deininger, Ira Coyley, William Wechesser, Howard Buckland, James Murray, Julian Wallich, Derwood Cunningham, Allan Ellis, Howard Suter and James Grimes.

Anyone knowing the whereabouts of any of these men, call Edward Cezar at (410) 792-4729 so he and the troop committee can extend an invitation. The dinner will be at the Savage Volunteer Fire Hall at 6: 30 p.m. Past or present members are invited to attend. The cost is $3.

Author to present tales

Wauneta Wine will present "Tales from the Teepee" at 3 p.m. Nov. 14 at the Savage Library. This local children's author presents native American stories and crafts. Other library presentations that Wine has given include having children make patchwork book bags depicting scenes from favorite stories.

Cody "Little Bear" Craft, a native American, will help Wine by performing the Eagle Dance. In a performance at Laurel Woods Elementary, Craft requested that no photos be taken during his performance. Photographers should ask before the performance.

No registration is required.
