CALLING all artists!

The Shady Side Rural Heritage Society is seeking drawings of 12 south county landmarks for inclusion in the 1999 Southern Anne Arundel County calendar.

The nonprofit group is publishing the calendar as a joint fund-raiser with the Galesville Heritage Society.

The sites selected for this year's calendar are Granny Annie's Shop in Shady Side; Richard's Corner Grill in Shady Side; the Abell Home in West River; the Deale Public Library; St. Mark's Chapel in Deale; Galesville Jail; the Carrie Weedon House in Galesville; Dick and Jane's Farm and Produce Stand in Harwood; Galesville United Methodist Church; the Tenant House on Route 2 in Lothian; Smith's Purchase in Owensville; and Larkin's Hill in Harwood.

Guard dogs patrol the area around Larkin's Hill, so call Newell Cannon for an appointment to sketch that site.

Entries should be submitted to Cannon no later than July 1. They must be original works in pen and ink 17 inches long and 22 inches wide.

Information: 410-867-4763.

Patriotic concert

The Cultural Arts Foundation and Anne Arundel County are letting their patriotism get ahead of the calendar Saturday.

That day they will co-sponsor a fireworks display at Anne Arundel Community College's Siegert Field, preceded by a concert that will include "Stars and Stripes Forever," big-band tunes and songs from American musical theater.

The free outdoor concert begins with performances by local music groups at 5: 30 p.m. Among the groups scheduled to perform are the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, the Crabtowne HTC Big Band, Sons of the Severn, Arundel Vocal Corps and the Annapolis Chorale.

The BSO is scheduled to begin playing at 8: 15 p.m.

Concert-goers will be allowed to take lawn chairs, blankets and food to the concert.

Information: 410-222-7949.

Shady Side July Fourth

For an Independence Day Celebration on July 4, make plans to attend the 10th annual Old-fashioned Fourth of July at the Captain Salem Avery House Museum in Shady Side.

"You won't find a more lovely spot, with more friendly people, nor a better place to celebrate the birth of our nation," said Mavis Daly, who was installed for her sixth term as co-president (along with her husband, George) of the Shady Side Rural Heritage Society.

The red-white-and-blue festival gets under way at 10 a.m. with a parade that starts at the Shady Side post office.

Anyone who wants to enter the baking contest needs to have his or her entry at the museum by noon. After the judging, the entries will be sold.

Boy Scouts will raise the flag and lead the Pledge of Allegiance at 1 p.m. The Bay Winds Band will provide music for the afternoon, and the Curtis Brown family will sell hot dogs, hamburgers, snacks and soft drinks. All proceeds from the food will go to the Shady Side Rural Heritage Society.

Information: 410-867-4486

The Annapolis Jaycees Inc. needs volunteers to help with the Mid-Atlantic Wine Festival Friday through Sunday.

Volunteers will work under the direction of Jaycees members. They will work in shifts and receive free entry to the festival, which will feature wines from the mid-Atlantic region and food booths, craft booths and music.
