IT SEEMS AS IF half the population of Pasadena is on vacation this week and the other half wishes it were. Those of us still hanging around have gone into summer hibernation, seeking the comfort of the air conditioner. But it doesn't take long before being cooped up can get to you. Here are some local events you might want to try:
Vintage Tin of Maryland will have its annual classic car show from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at Fort Smallwood Park at the end of Fort Smallwood Road. Rain date is July 27.
See classic cars, street rods and custom cars from the 1920s through the early 1970s.
Visitors can bring a picnic lunch or buy food at the park. Free sodas will be served all day.
"Fort Smallwood Park is a great park with lots of room and shade," said Mary Hankinson, club spokesman. In addition to the car show, there will be games for adults and children and a car-oriented flea market.
The fee to enter a car in the show is $12, and covers admission for two. Admission is $6.
Proceeds from the show will benefit the Arundel Hospice, Compassionate Friends and an automotive field scholarship fund.
Information: Mrs. Hankinson, 410-987-4248.
The Riviera Beach Volunteer Fire Company will sponsor a dinner bingo tomorrow in the air-conditioned fire hall above the station on Fort Smallwood Road.
The doors will open at 4: 30 p.m. Early bird games will start at 6 p.m.
Tickets are $20 and include a roast beef platter with vegetables and the bingo package.
The Aid Association for Lutherans, Branch 10144, is planning an informational program on estate protection at 6: 30 p.m. today at Galilee Lutheran Church, 4652 Mountain Road.
The program, with video and handouts, will help explain the spiritual, emotional and legal importance of protecting your estate, said Marilyn Eaves, church spokeswoman. "Many people think that you must have a large amount of money to have estate protection, but that's not true," she said.
The program is free and open to the community.
Information: Tom Eaves, 410-437-5957 or Dale Bennett, 410-255-2060.
Test your luck at Lake Shore Volunteer Fire Company's Casino Night, open from 8 p.m. Aug. 9 to 1 a.m. at the fire hall.
The event will feature a variety of wheel, horse races, poker, keno, showdown poker, over-under and instant bingo games.
Tickets are $5 and include hot dogs and beer.
Proceeds will help the company pay for a new pumper tanker.
