Savage Senior Center offers bingo, flea market and more


November 14, 1997|By Lourdes Sullivan | Lourdes Sullivan,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

FOR THOSE who prefer a more active agenda than snuggling up with a cup of cocoa and a good book as cold weather descends, there's plenty to do right in our corner of the county.

Savage Senior Center holds a Bingo Extravaganza from 10: 30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday.

The cards are only a nickel. Admission is a nonperishable food item to be donated to a food bank.

Coffee and doughnuts will be provided, and dolls will be raffled.

Although the center will be closed Wednesday, you can enjoy a flea market there Thursday.

Tables for artisans are $3 each.

Flu shots will be available next door at the Health Department.

For information about center programs, call director Edith Bennett at 410-880-5915. She has a list of transportation services for those who need them.

Savage Library is in the same complex. Might as well pick up a good book and make a night of it.

Musical holidays

If the holidays approach, can music be far behind?

In our neighborhood are amateur singers to gladden the season.

The Columbia Pro Cantare Ltd. will perform the Christmas portion of Handel's "Messiah" and other selections at 7: 30 p.m. Dec. 7.

Members of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Frances Motyca Dawson, will perform with professional singers: soprano Amy Van Roekel, mezzo soprano Marianna Busching, tenor Charles Reid and baritone Lester Lynch.

All have impressive credentials -- ranging from member of the Peabody Institute voice faculty to winner of a Metropolitan Opera Competition.

The holiday sound is produced by a group that includes the voices of Savage residents Cyndie Eberhardt, Carolyn Cregan, Matt Johnsen and Fran Williams.

Advance tickets for performance are $15 for adults; $12 for seniors. Tickets purchased at the door have a $2 surcharge. Discount group rates are available.

The concert will be at the James Rouse Theatre, 5460 Trumpeter Road in Columbia. Information: 410-465-5744

Vegetarian treats for teens

Hammond High student Antje Hultgren is conducting an independent research project.

She is planning to produce a vegetarian recipe book -- for teen-agers.

As plans progress, Antje is looking for information about types of vegetarians, health issues and, of course, recipes.

She'd appreciate help from vegetarians, vegans and health professionals.

Anyone wishing to help a student with the project is welcome to leave a message at Hammond High's Gifted and Talented Resource Room.

The PTSA plans to sell the recipe book next spring.

Information: 410-730-7626.

Holiday decorations

Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks is offering classes at Hammond High School on decorating for the holidays.

All of the classes are taught by Donna Piorko.

The first class, "Thanksgiving Centerpiece," will be from 7 p.m. to 9: 30 p.m. Tuesday.

Participants will take home a centerpiece.

On Dec. 2, class participants can make a 2-foot-high boxwood Christmas tree, with bows and decorations.

On Dec. 9, the featured project is a decorative wreath made from boxwood and dried flowers.

And on Dec. 15, Piorko's class will make a Christmas centerpiece.

The classes cost $18 each. An additional materials fee, payable at class, is between $25 and $35.

Information: 410-313-7275.
