Mark your calendar so you don't miss fall's best


September 25, 1997|By Joni Guhne | Joni Guhne,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

PARDON ME, but was that couple of weeks of warm weather that just flew across the calendar actually summer? I don't expect any lazy, hazy days of autumn, either.

What I'm trying to say is it's not too early to mark some important events on your calendar so you don't wake up in December realizing you've missed the best of fall as well as summer.

Members of the Severn Town Club, noted for their generous donations, are planning their busiest season of fund raising.

For nearly 58 years, Severn Town Club, a women's club, has provided an opportunity for county residents to socialize as well as contribute to the community.

"We don't consider ourselves just a social club," said former club President Sue Norris. "We work very hard on our projects, while having a good time."

Over the years, the club has donated thousands of dollars to the county's civic organizations.

The season begins Oct. 16 with the club's 20th annual luncheon-fashion show, featuring the fashions of Elanne's of Maryland Avenue, at the Bay Ridge Inn in Annapolis, beginning with a cash bar at 11 a.m.

Tickets for lunch and the show are $20. Tables will be set for 10. Call chairwoman Ruby Donovan for reservations at 410-643-8897.

Severn Town Club's 34th annual Holly Ball-Dinner Dance on Dec. 6 will benefit three county institutions: Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, Hospice of the Chesapeake and Hospice of Anne Arundel Medical Center.

Set in the Annapolis Wyndham Gardens Hotel and decorated with a Colonial Christmas theme, the gala begins at 7 p.m. with hors d'oeuvres and a silent auction.

Ball chairwoman Janet Morgan says Crabtowne Big Band will provide music for dancing. Buxton Photography will take complimentary portraits of guests, dressed to the nines for this black-tie affair.

Tickets are $100 each. Reservations: 410-757-4320.

Fire company open house

Another county institution, the Earleigh Heights Volunteer Fire Company, will hold its annual open house from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 12. This is one of the best family events of the year. Live firefighting and rescue demonstrations will be performed, and guests will be able to examine rescue, emergency medical and hazardous materials equipment.

Other county and state safety organizations will set up information booths and displays. Representatives of the state and county police, the state departments of Natural Resources and Environment, the Coast Guard and Anne Arundel Medical Center are expected to attend.

Members of several fire departments will be on hand, including those from BWI Airport, Fort Meade, Riviera Beach and the county.

Flea market

Children's and household items will be on sale from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday at the parking lot of Woods Memorial Presbyterian Church. The sale benefits the Woods Child Development Center.

The rain date is Oct. 11.
