Maryland State Fair


September 02, 2001|By Sloane Brown

When all the spinning and whirling on all the midway rides at the Maryland State Fair's "Ride Mania" night became a bit too much, the Vista Room in the fairgrounds administration building provided a peaceful refuge for some 100 folks. At the "VIP Party for Maryland State Fair Sponsors," they could relax and enjoy a buffet that included carved roast beef and crabcakes. To the relief of many parents who had brought their young children, the spread also included fresh fruits and veggies -- providing some balance to the cotton candy and corn dogs their kids had consumed outside.

Guests included: Grove Miller, Maryland State Fair president; Max Mosner, Maryland State Fair vice president / general manager; Robin Bissell, Esskay Meat Co. president; Mike Lidinsky, Churchill Distributors sales manager; Doreen Smith, Carrollton Bank vice president; Mary Jewell, Bradford Federal Savings Bank vice president; Buddy Roogow, Maryland State Lottery director; Steve Favazza, Schmidt Baking Company marketing director; Jay Stafford, Van Dorn Pools & Spas CEO; Jim Sachse, McCormick & Co. business process manager; Jim Bullington, Verizon computer technician; Joan Balog, Immanuel Lutheran School teacher; Jerry Copas, Jack Daniels balloon pilot; John Eddison, Esskay balloon pilot; Diane DeMarco, WJZ TV post production editor; Sally O'Hara, WOLB radio "Future Talk" producer; Walt Klausmeyer, JC Penney salesman; Guy Anderson, Anderson Financial Services owner; Stephanie McConnell, Nutramax Laboratories, Inc. quality assurance technician; Scott Philippe, Bruce McMillin Associates land surveyor; and Kevin Dumville, Patient First marketing manager.
