Bethel church, academy sponsoring `Kardio-Kickboxing,' blood drive

NEW YEAR, new millennium, new beginnings. What a great incentive to get up and do!

Bethel Assembly of God and Bethel Christian Academy in Savage are sponsoring interesting activities this year. Everyone is welcome to participate.

On Monday evenings and Wednesday afternoons, Lisa Frost offers "Kardio-Kickboxing" at Bethel Christian Academy. The hour-long sessions combine fitness and fun.

Information: 301-379-4227.

For those hoping to lose a few pounds after a holiday binge, Weight Watchers offers a successful program. An 11-week course is scheduled at 6 p.m. Fridays from Jan. 19 to March 30 at Bethel Christian Academy.

Information: Joy Hemler, 301-498-3344.

The Red Cross comes to Bethel Christian Academy on Jan. 25 for a blood drive. Blood supplies often run low in early winter, when regular donors may go on vacation or get the flu. Travel-related accidents push supplies lower.

The Red Cross and Bethel hope to find at least 55 people to help replenish the supply. It takes less than an hour to give blood. While walk-in donations will be accepted, the Red Cross likes to know how many donors it can expect. Hours are from 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Registration: 301-498-3344.

French society inducts 8

Hammond High School's Societe Honoraire de Francais chapter inducted new members in the fall.

The school's chapter, founded in May 1999 by French teacher Shelley Pollero, is almost 2 years old. The chapter numbers 13 members, all of whom are advanced students of French. Each student has had to maintain an A average in French for two years.

Inducted Nov. 18 were seniors Sarah Britz, Brian Cassella and Jessica Swope, and juniors Jennifer Hubbs, Amy Kennedy, Kathleen Langan, Madeline Mehalko and Megan Ricklin.

These eight newcomers join seniors Aamna Bhatti, Shelley Binder, Megan Hill, Erinn Maguire and Daniel Rusk in the club.
