September 28, 1997|By Phyllis Lucas | Phyllis Lucas,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

I GUESS by now everyone has heard that after much work by many people, the Chesapeake Center for the Creative Arts is becoming a reality at the old Brooklyn Park High School on Hammonds Lane. Here is a chance to become part of Brooklyn Park's history.

Help design an organizational logo the center can use on its letterhead and in advertisements. Design entries should be submitted by Nov. 3 to Del. Joan Cadden, Room 213, Thomas Lowe Building, Annapolis 21401.

Apples for the students

Giant Food has announced the start of its "Apples for the Students" program. Save cash register receipts from Giant and donate them to the schools. This year, the receipts are purple. The schools will save the receipts until March and turn them into Giant for equipment. Here are the exchanges schools made last year: Belle Grove Elementary School collected $107,925 in receipts and received two pieces of audio-visual equipment; Brooklyn Park Elementary School collected $165,217 in receipts and received five pieces of audio-visual equipment and equipment for science and math classes. Park Elementary School turned in $189,225 in receipts in exchange for 22 software packages. Lindale/Brooklyn Park Middle School turned in $76,403 in receipts and received a computer and four pieces of equipment for science and math classes. North County High School's $565,745 in receipts was good for seven software packages and 15 science- and math-related pieces of equipment. St. John's Christian Day School turned in $215,537 in receipts, good for four pieces of audio-visual equipment.
