March 23, 1997|By Phyllis Lucas | Phyllis Lucas,SPECIAL TO THE SUN


On the holiday tomorrow commemorating the founding of Maryland a mere 363 years ago, Margaret Steinbock-Davies and her fourth-grade students at Brooklyn Park Elementary School will be celebrating in social studies class.

Steinbock-Davies, the social studies teacher, has planned a traditional Maryland luncheon for the students to help prepare and enjoy, including Maryland crab soup, Maryland fried chicken, biscuits, potato salad, fresh green beans, Maryland-shaped sugar cookies, a cake depicting the Maryland flag, and black-eyed Susan chocolates.

Expected guests at the luncheon include Principal Michael Trippett, state Sen. and Mrs. Philip C. Jimeno and Del. Joan Cadden. Each student and guest will receive a program that includes several traditional Maryland recipes.

Other activities planned for the students include designing possible new license plates for the state using resources found in Maryland.
