Golfing for Hope Lodge

The game of golf has become one of the favorite ways for area charities to raise a little money. I stopped by the Cattail Country Club in Glenwood recently to have lunch with some charity golfers before they teed off for a fun day on those rolling hills at Cattail.

Former O's first baseman Boog Powell was the honorary chair of this fund-raiser for the Hope Lodge, a home away from home for cancer patients undergoing life-saving medical treatment at area hospitals.

Boog, whose golf partner was his pal Bob Watson, said he'd heard about the lodge while he was living in Florida. Seems a man who worked at Boog's marina there lived at Hope Lodge while being treated for cancer in Baltimore.

Tourney chair Jay Rosengarden was pleased with the turnout, which included a winning Nationsbank team of Don Littleton, Bob Kaestner, Trevor Buck and Mark Warns, and the Harkins Builders team of Blase Cook, Gary Garofalo, Jim Kreckel and Stuart Chandler.

St. Paul's School for Girls is 40 this year, and headmistress Evelyn Flory and her staff recently kicked off "Gatorfest," a yearlong celebration named for the school's mascot, the Gator.

More than 900 students, parents, board members, alums, faculty members and staff attended an informal lawn party on the school's beautiful Brooklandville campus. Many arrived carrying picnic baskets, but Graul's market provided box dinners for those not inclined to do so.

Charlotte Douglas, a SPSG teacher and parent of two alums, and Leslie Saxton, parent of an alum and wife of former board president John Saxton, pulled this very large event together.

Others at the party were Sandy and John Unitas, Wickie Plant, Michael Sloneker, Annette Paterakis, Xandy Waesche, Julia Sawyer, Gail Chrzan, Sam Hoyle, Lisa Hardiman and her husband, Erik Ginsberg, Steve and Jackie Boesel, and Alex Fisher.

What a nice way to celebrate being 40!
