Bagged donations may be dropped off at St. James Thrift Shop on Main Street, Mount Airy, and marked to the attention of Debbie McKenzie.

Wrestling registration

The Warriors are looking for another great season. The last date for wrestling registration is Monday. Registration is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the South Carroll High School wrestling room.

According to Steve Willingham, head coach, the Warriors have been around the South Carroll area for more than 20 years.

"It's a great sport for physical conditioning and building self-confidence because the boys have to rely on their own skills to participate," he said. "It has a lot of physical contact, but there's no hitting, so it's nothing like what people see on television. It's also a neat way to meet new friends."

Registration costs $50 per individual or $75 per family. Wrestling practices start in early November. Information: Willingham, 410-875-0389.

Bulldog Classic golf

The Mount Airy Volunteer Fire Department is sponsoring its second Bulldog Classic Golf Tournament at 9 a.m. Oct. 2.

The event will be held at the Links at Challedon at 6166 Challedon Circle in Mount Airy.

Cost is $85 per golfer or $325 per team, and proceeds benefit the Mount Airy Volunteer Fire Department. The money is used to offset the costs of fire and rescue training and equipment.

Registration and a continental breakfast begin at 7: 30 a.m. Snacks will be provided on the course and lunch will be served at the Mount Airy Activities Grounds at Twin Arch Road and Route 27. Prizes will be awarded for the longest drive and closest to the pin, and to the top three teams. The event also features door prizes and a hole-in-one contest for a new car.

Information: Craig Avery, 301-829-0100 or 410-795-8055.

'Secret Agent' story times

The Mount Airy library will have a "Secret Agent" fall story time program at 4: 30 p.m. Wednesday for children entering grades three and up.
