Bigger lifeguard role makes life busy for teens


September 09, 1998|By Nancy Gallant | Nancy Gallant,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

JESSICA BAUMGARDNER and Wendy Scholfield have been extra busy the past few weeks.

The two Arundel High School juniors were settling into new classes and extracurricular activities at school but, in addition, also were working as lifeguards at Crofton Village Swim Club.

Because college students had returned to campuses, high school-aged lifeguards took on extra work, preparing for the close of the summer pool season last weekend.

At Crofton Swim and Tennis Club, the summer's last weekend brought two big parties.

More than 200 members and guests enjoyed a barbecue Friday night. On Sunday morning, an adult version of the popular children's raft night was held. But the Float-About wasn't nearly as crowded and noisy as the children's events. Instead, couples enjoyed lazing on their rafts, drinking in the sunshine, the warm weather and the quiet of a morning at the pool.

Volunteers sought

Volunteers are needed for a new program at the Crofton Convalescent Center's Directions Unit to help patients with Alzheimer's and dementia.

Each volunteer will be paired with a patient and will meet with that patient weekly over a year.

An orientation will teach volunteers about the diseases and provide guidance on how volunteers can be most helpful.

Church schedules

With Labor Day in the past, Crofton churches have been completing summer programs and returning to "normal" fall schedules.

At St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Roman Catholic Church, the 12: 30 p.m. Sunday Mass will return this weekend after a summer hiatus.

Seton will hold its annual parish picnic Sept. 26.

Prince of Peace Presbyterian Church will resume its traditional 11 a.m. Sunday services, with an informal worship service at 9 a.m.

From 6: 30 to 7 o'clock tonight, parents at Community United Methodist Church are invited to meet their children's Sunday school teachers at the church hall.
