St. Martin's church will hold Wild West fund-raiser Saturday


April 10, 1997|By Joni Guhne | Joni Guhne,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

INSTEAD OF the usual ecclesiastical sounds emanating from St. Martin's in the Field Episcopal Church on Benfield Road, you'll hear howdies and y'alls Saturday night.

At 7 p.m., the church will begin its annual fund-raiser, the Wild West Gala Auction and Dance.

With dancing, dining, entertainment and silent and live auctions, you should have a real foot-stompin' good time. For tickets, call 410-544-5770.

Walk for Education

The parent-teacher organizations from six Severna Park elementary schools will sponsor the Greater Severna Park Walk for Education from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. April 20.

The walk is a cooperative effort by Benfield, Folger McKinsey, Jones, Oak Hill, Severna Park and Shipley's Choice elementary schools, the private Chesapeake Academy and the Greater Severna Park Chamber of Commerce.

The route will lead parents, teachers and students along the B&A Trail from Severna Park Elementary to Chesapeake Academy.

The PTOs hope the walk will raise funds for the schools while drawing attention to what they see as an urgent need for more county and state funding for schools, especially at the elementary level.

"The schools have a strong sense of community," says Suzie Shields, a project committee member from Severna Park Elementary School. "Though the more than 2,500 Greater Severna Park students live in different communities, they all eventually attend Severna Park middle and high schools."

Working on the project committee are Chairman Mitch Egber, Marion Wear, Cathy Downey and Helen Chapman from Folger McKinsey; Nancy Prue and Marty Whitcomb from Benfield; Wade Thomas from Jones; Shields and Courtnay Jones from Severna Park; Cathy Rutland from Shipley's Choice; David Fontz from Oak Hill; and Jackie Colstock from the Chamber of Commerce.

Appraisals of antiques

If you enjoy watching the television show "Antiques Roadshow," on which people bring family heirlooms to be appraised by experts, you'll want to bring one of your own keepsakes and meet me at the Severna Park branch library from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. April 30.

The Greater Severna Park Chamber of Commerce has invited antiques specialists and representatives of the Maryland Historical Society to discuss attic treasures and to give one free appraisal for each person who attends.
