At 86, Althea Carrick might be the last person one would expect to find in summer school. But Carrick is joining about 300 other residents of Charlestown Retirement Community in Catonsville taking college courses this summer. The program, called the Senior Institute, is part of a 15-year collaboration between Charlestown and the Catonsville campus of the Community College of Baltimore County. Seniors enroll in courses that range from hobby classes such as watercolor painting to history, politics and foreign languages.

When Our Lady of the Angels Chapel was built and dedicated in the early 20th century, it was surrounded by the rolling hills and open countryside of a farm that served as a retreat for the members of the Catholic order of the Sulpician Fathers.  For years, the chapel was the centerpiece of St. Charles College, a Catholic Seminary that operated at the site on Maiden Choice Lane from 1911 until 1977. Through the years, the chapel, with its vaulted Italian marble walls, 68-foot-tall dome and ornate stone, buff brick, limestone and terra cotta construction has stood as an exquisite example of Italian Renaissance architecture.

Engelina van Opstal remembers having a problem with the air conditioning in her apartment at Charlestown Retirement Community and calling for someone to come repair it. "John came," van Opstal recalled Thursday, "and he got it working. " That would be John C. Erickson, who 30 years ago opened Charlestown on the grounds of a former seminary in Catonsville, the first of what would become a chain of 16 retirement communities in nine states. Erickson, who sold the company in 2010, returned Thursday for what he called "a big homecoming" to help residents and staff celebrate Charlestown's 30th anniversary.

Joe Datsko was an admitted workaholic for the first 25 years of a 47-year career as a mechanical engineering professor at the University of Michigan. Datsko likes to say that until he was in his early 50s "most of my exercise was writing on a blackboard. " That changed in the early 1970s when the younger of Datsko's two sons - he also has three daughters - was invited to the 1972 U.S. Olympic trials in cycling. Robert Datsko, who was in high school at the time, failed to secure one of the 12 spots, finishing in the top third of the 66-person field.

Thank you for the excellent article about Bill Stromberg and the artists at Charlestown retirement community ("One-man art exhibition features many sides of life," Catonsville Times, July 6). The exhibit of 13 of his works is stunning. Due in part to the fine article by Lauren Fulbright, there was a large crowd at the opening reception on Sunday. Those of us who live at Charlestown are fortunate to have three art studios to work and create in a community of other artists.
