July 30, 1998|By Ed McDonough | Ed McDonough,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

TANEYTOWN will be the site of this year's Carroll County National Night Out Against Crime event Tuesday.

Col. David B. Mitchell, Maryland State Police superintendent, will join Taneytown Police Chief Mel Diggs and Lt. Leonard Armstrong of the Westminster State Police barracks at the event.

Activities begin at 6: 30 p.m. with a gathering at the Taneytown Bank & Trust headquarters at Baltimore Street and Trevanion Road. A parade will begin at 7 p.m. and travel to Memorial Park, which will be the site of a free picnic and brief comments by dignitaries.

Residents and business representatives are encouraged to participate and send the message that crime will not be tolerated. A state police helicopter, police dogs and fire equipment will be on display.

Last year, New Windsor played host to a similar event.

Meeting moved

Because of Tuesday's activities, Taneytown Area Recreation Council is changing its monthly meeting schedule.

Members of the rec council will participate in the parade and will meet at Memorial Park afterward, weather permitting.

In September, the meeting will return to its usual site at Taneytown Senior Center on Roberts Mill Road. The group meets at 7 p.m. the first Tuesday of each month.

Anyone with children involved in youth sports activities is encouraged to attend.

Football season starting

The Francis Scott Key Junior Eagles Football program will start conditioning clinics this weekend at Memorial Park.

The first session will be held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, and will be followed by sessions from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Aug. 6.

The program will accept late registration for players or cheerleaders at those times.

Cheerleaders are eligible to attend a camp Saturday in Westminster and will begin practice at 6: 30 p.m. Tuesday.

To register for the cheerleading camp or for information about any of the programs, call Wanda Melvin, 410-756-1223 or 410-876-9957.

Yoga in Union Bridge

Union Bridge Area Recreation Council offers a nine-week yoga session at the Community Center on Ladiesburg Road.

The first session was last night, but you can attend any remaining sessions for $6 per class. Sessions run from 6: 45 p.m. to 7: 45 p.m. Wednesdays. Participants should wear shorts or leotards and bring two mats.

Yoga can be used to improve muscle tone, circulation, blood pressure, glandular function, digestion, joint function, and energy level and to reduce stress.
