March 19, 1998|By Ed McDonough | Ed McDonough,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

FOLLOWING CLOSE on the heels of fairs at Taneytown and Runnymede elementary schools, Elmer Wolfe will have its annual Spring Fling from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

Even though the school is at temporary quarters in the old New Windsor Middle School (a new Elmer Wolfe is being built in Union Bridge), PTO organizers promise plenty of food, games and activities for children, a book swap, flower sale and Maryland State Police fingerprinting service.

The school is on Green Valley Road in New Windsor.

Strike up the band

For several months, Taneytown officials have been talking about adding a band shell at Memorial Park.

The Taneytown Lions Club wants to help make that idea a reality.

The Lions Club is planning an all-you-can-eat breakfast from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday at the Taneytown Carnival Grounds activities building.

The menu includes pancakes, sausage, fried-to-order eggs, pudding and hominy, sausage gravy, juice, coffee and tea. The cost is $4.50 for adults and $2.50 for ages 6 to 12.

Proceeds will be used to help pay for construction of a band shell with handicapped accessible seating and a stage. The shell will be named after the late Henry Reindollar, a former Taneytown mayor and longtime Lions Club member.

Memorial Park has been the site of many well-attended summer concerts.

A slam dunk

The New Windsor seventh-and-eighth-grade team in the Carroll County Recreation Basketball League won its season-ending tournament last weekend.

The New Windsor squad, coached by Rick Offutt, defeated North Carroll 53-40 in the championship game. Earlier, New Windsor topped Charles Carroll 70-41 and topped one of four Mount Airy teams, 49-22, in their tournament opener.

The squad, which is made up of mostly seventh-graders, went 8-2 in the regular season before winning the tournament. Many of the players were on an Offutt-coached squad that went 14-0 in the fifth-and-sixth-grade division last year.

Team players included Brad Thompson, Eric Offutt, Chris Bassler, Mike Surdyka, Dale Derr, Joe Reilly, Norman Montgomery, Jason Harris, Allan Damrau, Ryan Mickey and

Justin Nupp.

New era in sports

A new era in recreation sports in Northwest Carroll begins Sunday afternoon at Memorial Park.

The first area recreation lacrosse games will take place at the football field when the Francis Scott Key Junior Eagles entertain Walkersville and Thomas Johnson in the Western Maryland Lacrosse League season opener.

The elementary game (grades three to five) against Walkersville starts at 3 p.m., and the middle school game against Thomas Johnson is at 4 p.m.
