Red Cross celebrates


April 18, 1999|By Sloane Brown

Three hundred and fifty candles seemed a bit too many for a birthday cake, so the American Red Cross, Central Maryland Chapter, helped Annapolis observe its 350th anniversary by dedicating its annual Annapolis Red Cross Heritage Celebration to the occasion.

Among the more than 150 guests celebrating at the Annapolis Marriott Waterfront: Annapolis Mayor Dean Johnson and wife Sally (who will be celebrating their 30th anniversary in June); Frank L. Miller, executive director of the American Red Cross, Central Maryland Chapter; William F. Trussell, board chairman of the Red Cross Anne Arundel County district; Newton Gentry and Beverly Goodwyn, board members; Kathryn Ottman and Lenora Henry, event coordinators; and Gerald Ford, VP at Arinc Inc.

The evening netted $28,000 for the Anne Arundel County Disaster Relief Fund.
