Junior Women's Club seeks former members for anniversary tea


January 05, 1998|By Melinda Rice | Melinda Rice,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

ATTENTION ALL former members of the South Arundel Junior Women's Club -- the club is looking for you.

Members are planning a celebration of the service club's 30th anniversary and are trying to track down about 100 former members.

The celebration will be an afternoon tea on the second or third weekend in May.

Finicky appetites

Judy Koenig is looking forward to "Mealtime for Munchkins," a program that shows parents how to cope with their preschoolers' finicky eating habits.

"Boy, do I need it," said Koenig, trying to persuade 2-year-old twins, Peter and Perri, to eat during a break from shopping at the Annapolis Mall.

Bananas? Nope. Cereal? Not a chance. Fruit bars? No way.

Peter and Perri, who live with their mom and dad, Kevin, in Annapolis, knew exactly what they wanted, and only that would do.

"Cookie!" they chorused.

"Mealtime for Munchkins" is sponsored by the Anne Arundel Medical Center. The program, run by dietitians Ann Caldwell and Maureen Shackleford, is from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Friday at the hospital's Jennifer Road complex. Activities for preschoolers will part of the program, which costs $10.

Award for soil conservation

Lothian resident Walid Ibrahim, who owns 46 acres on the Patuxent River, was named the Anne Arundel County Soil Conservation District cooperator of the year for his efforts at low-impact farming and proactive soil conservation.

Ibrahim, 71, has lived on the farm since 1992, although he has owned it since 1960. He moved there after retiring from the federal Food and Drug Administration, where he worked as a chemist.

Competition for cats

Forget the Oscars, the Miss America pageant and the Olympics. You can't compete in them.

You can't compete in the annual competition sponsored by the Black Eyed Susan Cat Club, either, but your cat can.

The annual event is Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 this year at the Medford National Guard Armory in Annapolis.

Entries must be received by Jan. 16.

Cats can compete in four categories: championship (purebred adults 8 months and older); kittens (purebred kittens 4 to 8 months); alters (spayed or neutered purebreds); and household pet (open to all domestic cats).

Information: 410-780-0760.
