Registration for first-time Girl Scouts under way


July 04, 1999|By Rosalie Falter | Rosalie Falter,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

MARYANN KULESZ, coordinator for the Girl Scout troops sponsored by St. Philip Neri Parish, says registration is now going on for girls interested in joining for the first time.

"Girls do not have to be members of the parish or attend the school in order to enroll," she said. More than 140 girls at St. Philip Neri Parish are enjoying Girl Scouts and have invited others to join them.

The troops resume meeting in September, and there are openings at all levels from Daisy to Cadette/Senior Girl Scouts (grades K-12). Registration costs $7 and nominal monthly dues are charged.

Parents are needed as leaders or assistant leaders. If you and/or your daughter are looking for a fun-packed, worthwhile activity, contact Kulesz at 410-768-7878 for information and registration forms.

Concert in the Park

The Doc Dikeman Combo is the opening performance for the Concert in the Park. It takes place at 6 p.m. today at Linthicum Park on Benton Avenue.

On July 11, the Bay Winds Concert Band will be the second concert in a series sponsored by the Woman's Club of Linthicum Heights. All are invited to enjoy an evening of free entertainment under the trees in the park. The concert begins at 6 p.m. Concertgoers are invited to bring picnic suppers and chairs or blankets.

The Bay Winds Concert Band was founded in 1980 as a nonprofit corporation whose members are primarily from Anne Arundel County.

Membership of the band is diverse: from post-high school students to military band members to present and former educators and professionals from all walks of life.

Michael J. Svec has conducted the band since 1991. He has taught in the county's public schools for 35 years, 30 of them as music director at Annapolis High School. Russ Divilbis, assistant conductor, was an oboist with the Naval Academy Band.

Parking is available on the Linthicum Elementary School grounds behind the park. In the event of rain, the concert will be canceled.
