Award named for late theater student


November 19, 1998|By Joni Guhne | Joni Guhne,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

UNTIL HER DEATH as a passenger on Pan Am Flight 103 on Dec. 21, 1988, Miriam Luby Wolfe was a musical-theater student at Syracuse University and a cherished member of Temple Beth Shalom in Arnold. The gifted 20-year-old writer and actress was the daughter of Rosemary and Larry Mild of Severna Park.

In her memory, the Miriam Luby Wolfe Award was established as a scholarship for outstanding high school students who are members of Temple Beth Shalom.

Two 11th-graders from Broadneck High School who serve on Temple Beth Shalom's youth group board are sharing this year's award: Julie Morganstern and Leah Rosenbach.

An aspiring writer, Julie, daughter of Don and Betty Morganstern, has taken writing courses at the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth while taking honors and advanced placement courses at Broadneck.

She plays the trombone in her school's marching, pep and jazz bands and in the orchestra.

She plans to use her award to attend the national National Federation of Temple Youth Convention in Los Angeles in February.

Leah, daughter of Stephen and Sandy Rosenbach, is the president of the temple youth group and enjoys academics, cheerleading and singing.

She said she plans to use her award when she travels to Israel in the spring as an exchange student, "speaking the language, walking the land and living with the people."


Three members of Archbishop Spalding High School's Class of 1998, all central county residents, were recently named Advanced Placement Scholars -- Reb Beatty, son of Bob and Beverly Beatty of Millersville; Sara Belgard, daughter of Mary Broch of Millersville; and Thomas Hartka, son of Thomas and Mary Ann Hartka of Severna Park.

Holiday events

Given the strength of tradition in central county, it comes as no surprise that Saturday's holiday bazaar at Woods Memorial Presbyterian Church is No. 57.

Scheduled from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., the bazaar will feature floral arrangements, home-baked goods, nuts for baking, baskets, snowmen, woodcrafts, doll clothes and photos with Santa Claus.

Theo Blaney, Molly Balog, Paula Meuhlhauser and Lynn Sackett are chairing the event.

Information: 410-647-2550 or 410-729-1324.

Another popular event, the Christmas Crafts Fair, takes place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dec. 5 at St. Martin's in the Field Episcopal Church on Benfield Road.

This fair will feature candy wreaths, boxwood trees and dried flower arrangements. It is chaired by Sally Camm and Elise Tilyou.

Information: 410-647-9275 or 410-647-6312.

Apple sale

The Kiwanis Club of Severna Park reports that last month's apple sale was a success, with a profit of more than $3,000, every penny of which will go back into the community.

Information: 410-647-8361.
