Car seat safety stickers

The Kiwanis Club of Severna Park, with its motto "Young Children -- Priority One," has begun a project called Help a Child.

The program provides bright yellow stickers to adhere to the backs of child car seats.

Robert Jennings, a member of the Loch Raven Kiwanis Club in Baltimore, thought up the idea in 1996 after he witnessed the confusion at the scene of a serious auto accident. No one knew whom to contact to take care of the baby and toddler in the car.

The sticker lists the name of the parent or guardian and that of another relative not living with the child.

Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. got 12,000 stickers to give to employees.

To receive free emergency stickers, call 410-360-9325 in the evening.

Girl wins scholarship

Congratulations to eighth-grader Lizzy Greif, who has been named a winner in the annual Archbishop Spalding music scholarship competition for next school year.

Liz and her parents, Dan and Amy Greif, along with her sisters, Allie and Carrie, recently moved to Severna Park, where Mrs. Greif grew up.

Liz, an outstanding student, plays the piano and clarinet, but her heart belongs to the oboe. "I can't imagine living without my oboe," she says.

She plays clarinet for the Maryland Youth Symphonette under conductor Angelo Gatto, founder and director of the Maryland Youth Symphony Orchestra and a member of the music faculty at Catonsville Community College.
