Lutherville firefighters plan to renovate facility

Lutherville Volunteer Fire Company will be launching a capital campaign to upgrade its headquarters and fire house on Bellona Avenue.

Community leaders will join fire company members at 10 a.m. Saturday to announce plans to update the building to include two additional bays; training rooms; a community meeting hall; and improved quarters for the members.

The building was last renovated nearly 40 years ago, fire officials said.

The fire company, which has been at the location since 1930, was formed in October 1909. It serves 34 communities in the county.

The company has raised more than $200,000 from local companies and members and families of the department.

Firefighting apparatus will be on display, including the company's first piece of firefighting equipment, a hand-drawn hose carriage.

The public is invited.

Schools taking online survey

Baltimore County school officials are asking students, parents and community members to participate in an online survey through May 20.

In its third year, the "stakeholder satisfaction survey" is a questionnaire designed to help the system gather feedback about how well it is responding to the needs of students and the community.

The survey is available at www.bcps.org. Participants should click on a link in the upper right-hand corner of the Web site's home page or from a link under "Highlights" on the center of the home page.

People without access to computers may take the survey at a county school or public library.

The survey, which began on April 20, will be accessible online 24 hours a day until midnight May 20.

Seniors to offer `Cinderella'

The Community College of Baltimore County Senior Star Showcase will perform Cinderella at 7:30 p.m. May 18; 2 p.m. May 19 and May 20; and 1 p.m. May 23 in the "B" Building Theatre on the Essex campus at 7201 Rossville Blvd.

"The joy of senior theater is that a person 72 years of age can play a 16-year-old, and if the acting is realistic and plausible, the audience soon forgets and the show is believable," said Arne Lindquist, director of the CCBC Senior Studies program. "With a company which is two-thirds' women and one-third men, Cinderella is a perfect choice."

Tickets for the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical are $12 for general admission, $10 for seniors and students, and $8 for groups of 15 or more.

For tickets or additional information, call the CCBC Box Office at 410-780-6369 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
