Around Town

July 07, 2002|By Sloane Brown

Herds. Flocks. Swarms. Whichever animal term you wanted to use fit the bunch at The Baltimore Zoo's "Zoomerang! 2002." A sell-out crowd -- the biggest ever -- of 2,500 humans spilled through the front gates for the popular yearly festival. Awaiting the throng were food stations from more than 70 Baltimore-area restaurants and caterers, offering a variety of edible delights.

The audible buffet was just as varied, with a live band to suit every musical taste, each housed in a different tent.

Among those satiating their senses: Dot and Henry Rosenberg Jr., event chairs; Virginia Karr and Lainy LeBow-Sachs, event committee members; Eddie Dopkin, Don Hutchinson, Sharon Nevins, Hugh Newton, Chris Pope, Liz Schroeder, Tim Schweizer and Carole Sibel, Maryland Zoological Society board members; Billie Grieb, Maryland Zoological Society president; Roger Birkel, The Baltimore Zoo executive director; Jack Antwerpen, Antwerpen Auto-motive Group CEO; Hal Whittaker, National Guarantee Mortgage senior loan officer; John Quincy Adams, John Q. Adams & Associates president; Jim Miller, Meridian Medical Technologies chairman / CEO; Marty Bass, WJZ TV personality; Kenny Hadel, Kali's Court general manager; Janice Keramides, American Res-idential Funding mortgage broker; Ricky Nickens, Dietz & Watson operations manager; Tedd Alexander, Brown Capital Management vice president; Donald Kerbel, Acme paper & Supply Co. Inc. key account manager; Gary Geisel, Provident Bank president; Margaret Preston, Mercantile Bankshares executive vice president; Martha Palmer, UPN 24 account executive; Patti Kenney, Kenney Sales vice president; and Dr. Hans Wilhelmsen, St. Joseph Medical Center plastic surgeon.
