March 22, 1998|By Rosalie Falter | Rosalie Falter,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

TWO BEAUTY shop owners won the Linthicum Lions Club's Linthicum's Best Businessperson awards for 1998 for their service to the community.

Cathy Ulrich, owner of Head to Toe Beauty Salon, and Sharon Wunder, of Crowning Glory Hair Salon, received their awards Monday at a club meeting and dinner. The awards were presented by Beth Sandifer, first vice president.

Ulrich and her staff provide gifts for needy families at Christmas, send donations to homeless children in Bosnia and support women's shelters. They collect eyeglasses for the Lions Club and have taken up a collection for a Linthicum resident who has cancer.

Ulrich, who has been in business 11 years, also encourages her staff to visit homebound customers to cut their hair and offers rides to those who need transportation.

Wunder, who has been in business for 22 years, sponsors a Naval Academy midshipman each year. She and her staff adopt a family at Christmas to provide gifts and food.

They also have made donations to Sarah's House, a West county women's shelter, and have assisted Linthicum Elementary School at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Wunder is an active member of her church and once a month offers her salon services to fellow church members and donates the proceeds to the church's building fund.

Runners-up were:

Jeff Bruce, of Bruce's Hardware store, behind the Shipley Linthicum Shopping Center. Bruce continues as a leader of Boy Scout Troop #477 at St. Philip Neri Church even though his son is no longer a Scout.

Ann Canty, who was manager of the NationsBank branch in Linthicum for 12 years until her recent transfer. She has been involved with a preschool reading program and has spoken at school career days about the banking industry.

Steven Pohlhaus, a dentist who has practiced in Linthicum for five years. He is active in community groups and is a volunteer dentist in the Dominican Republic two weeks a year.

Dr. Stephen Polakoff, an optometrist who has been in business on South Camp Meade Road for the past 24 years. He is an active volunteer on the Linthicum Elementary School Citizens Advisory Committee.

Eloise Vaughan, the retired former owner of the Knitting Loft on Camp Meade Road, who is an active member of St. Christopher's Episcopal Church. She was one of the founders of the Performing Arts Association of Linthicum, is on the board of directors of the Chesapeake Center for Creative Arts and was instrumental in the creation of the Linthicum Concert in the Park summer series.

Square dance fund-raiser

The Friendship Squares square dance club is sponsoring a dance to raise money for the American Lung Association of Maryland Benefit from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. March 29 at North County High School, 10 E. First Ave., Ferndale.

The program includes square dancing, round dancing and country western line dancing. Donald and Linda Hampshire, chairman and woman of the dance, say there will be refreshments, door prizes, a raffle, a 50/50 drawing and a bake walk -- a slightly different version of the cake walk.

The cost per person is $4 for square dancers and a donation for those who do not square dance.

The Friendship Squares meet regularly on the first Saturday and the third Friday of each month at Linthicum Elementary School. They conduct dance classes there on Wednesdays.
