July 06, 1999|By Nancy Gallant | Nancy Gallant,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

THE GAMBRILLS Athletic Under-14 boys' baseball team is making plans for a trip to Florida. After a successful season, the team has qualified to take part in the national American Athletic Union invitational baseball tournament.

On July 22, the team plans to travel to the Walt Disney World sports complex to compete for the national title.

To help fund this adventure, the club is sponsoring a dance for adults Saturday from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m., at the Gambrills Athletic Club. A disc jockey, snacks and beverages will be available, as well as prizes and a karaoke hour. Tickets are $15. Call Jerry Volker at 410-551-9955 or John White at 410-360-0435 to get them.

On July 17, the youngsters will join the fun and the fund-raising at a youth dance at the club from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Tickets are $5 for this event.

Kiwanis Club officers

There is an adage that if you want something done, ask a busy person.

The Crofton Kiwanis Club followed this rule as they chose officers for 1999-2000.

Jim McGuire, the president-elect, is retired from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. But his definition of retirement is loose. He's active in the religious education program at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton parish and in a variety of Kiwanis programs.

He served as Kiwanis sponsor for the Arundel High School Key Club and now sponsors the Archbishop Spalding High SchoolKey Club. He's helped set up the Kiwanis person-to-person program.

Dan Scholfield, the club's foundation vice president-elect, has also been involved in community activities from lay leadership at Seton parish to organizing the swim team at Crofton Village Swim Club. He works with the Arundel High Key Club, but he says his most memorable experience has been with Christmas in April.

Last spring, his group of Kiwanis Club members helped repair the home of an elderly Odenton woman. He received a thank-you note from the woman, a poem thanking the workers for their help, their friendship and their warmth.

Marnie Fallon, club vice president-elect, has also been involved in a variety of Kiwanis projects. Gayle Powell foundation treasurer-elect has been active in community affairs. And Tony Cannetti, club treasurer-elect is known for his work with the Crofton Chamber of Commerce.

Jessup Family Day

The Jessup Improvement Association will sponsor a Family Day, Parade and Craft Fair on July 17 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Jessup community hall.

To reserve a craft table, for a fee of $12, contact Dana Herbert at 410-796-7999. In last week's column, I typed in the wrong number for Herbert. Apologies to anyone who tried to reach her and couldn't. But it is not too late.
