It's the Chesapeake Center for the Creative Arts, not the Performing Arts. I know that. I knew that. My apologies for any confusion.
PLAN TO take a walk down memory lane -- or memory hallways -- of old Brooklyn Park Senior High.
An open house and tour planned for noon to 5 p.m. May 3 will be the last chance for many to see the grand old building before its transformation begins in June.
FOR THE RECORD - CORRECTION
Part of the building will become the new Brooklyn Park Middle School.
The auditorium, art rooms and some gym rooms will be reborn as the Chesapeake Center for the Performing Arts.
A suggested donation of $5 at the open house will benefit the performing arts center.
The committee coordinating the event is searching for Brooklyn Park High graduates to get involved, hoping to have people from each class share ideas and participate in planning the event.
The first committee meeting will be at 6: 30 p.m. Feb. 26 at the Northern District Police station on Hammonds Lane.
Other meetings are planned there March 12 and 25, also at 6: 30 p.m.
For information, call any of these participating Brooklyn Park grads, who represent classes from 1956 through 1990:
Karen Hodges-Moore, 410-636-3629; Arleen Hodges, 410-636-3269; Woody Bowen, 410-636-0352; Rich Schultz, 410-636-4054; Mary Ann Stuchinsky-Ferrin, 410-643-2828; Sandy Danker, 410-679-1060; Pam Nutting-Carey, 410-789-5546.
Don't leave it to chance
The Olde Brooklyn Park Improvement Association meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Brooklyn Park Elementary School.
Lawyer Richard Bittner will speak on wills and granting power of attorney.
Woody Bowen, an association representative, said the talk "is designed to answer practical questions. Information: 410-636-0352.
The show ring at Andover Equestrian Center will reopen in April or May, Tom Angelis, of the county Department of Recreation and Parks, told the Linthicum Shipley Improvement Association at its meeting last week.
The stables and barns will open later, possibly in late spring or early summer, he said.
County officials closed the center Jan. 31 for repairs and to re-evaluate the way it is managed, much to the chagrin of those who used it.
Angelis said he is assembling an advisory committee including those knowledgeable about therapeutic riding programs for the disabled.
He promised another update at the March meeting.
