In one print, the silos at Millersville's Kinder Farm Park are represented in countless tiny dots in shades of gray. Across the hallway, the Bay Bridge is silhouetted against a sky with blazing colors of red, orange and yellow. And upstairs, foreboding blue storm clouds gather over the water. Dozens of prints of all types - lithographs, woodcuts, etchings - cover the walls of the Willow Gallery at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis, the latest show from the busy artists in Anne Arundel Community College's printmaking club.

Purchasing a boat can be a lot like owning a second car. After the down payment, there are the boat's insurance payments. Upkeep can be difficult, with owners having to buy new equipment, deal with maintenance and keep up with the overall care of the boat. Then there's the question of storage. A slip in Maryland costs around $3,000, according to Dan Somerville, manager of Freedom Boat Club in Annapolis. Owners might need to buy a trailer, or even a truck, to be able to haul their boat to public waterways.

CHRISTMAS CAROLS echoed through the halls of Bethany Care Center in Westminster last week as members of the STARS Club entertained residents.

Condon, who remembered the days when most girls volunteered at a hospital or joined the Girl Scouts or a service organization.

At the monthly meetings of the Columbia Ski Club, discussions can swing from the planning for the March of Dimes Walk-a-Thon to the prospects for the new softball season.And if you stop by a meeting, don't be surprised if anyone asks you if you favor windsurfing, biking or tennis.Such topics may seem unlikely chatter for a ski club. But this ski club, which boasts about 500 members from the Baltimore-Washington area (and one from Australia), has a penchant for more than downhills, lifts and apres ski.The close of the ski season doesn't mean members go into hibernation until the first flurries of winter.

Two years ago, when storm surge from Tropical Storm Isabel sent the waters here rising, the boats docked in Otter Point Creek floated up along with them. The Otter Point Yacht Club, however, did not. Nearly eight feet of water rushed inside the tiny clubhouse after a part of the front wall gave in. The drenched interior was destroyed - an overturned jukebox, chairs bobbing in the murky waters, boxes of food submerged. But true to its motto as a "working man's yacht club," a point of pride among members, the club rallied, rebuilding the nearly 60-year-old watering hole by themselves into a sleek new retreat with a stunning view.

When Chris Calimano crosses the finish line of the Baltimore Marathon on Saturday, he will have completed a journey much longer than 26.2 miles. The 32-year-old New York native will have run a marathon in 50 different states, a milestone that few runners achieve in a lifetime. The 50 States Marathon Club, which keeps track of those who accomplish the feat, lists less than 1,000 reported finishers since 2001. "I'm just having fun. Setting little goals and challenges," said Calimano, who ran his first marathon in 2010.

Catherine Holmes' route home in Davidsonville takes her on a quarter-mile walk in the woods, over a fallen tree, through a shallow stream and along a swaying cable bridge to reach her log-sided cabin. Then she climbs through a window to get in. Holmes locks both doors from the inside when she leaves because she's worried about what might happen in her absence. And she seldom leaves. The 54-year-old nudist is in a legal dispute with her landlord, a nudist club called the Maryland Health Society Inc., which has ordered her off the property.

When my son James was a student at Loyola High School in the 1990s, I was active in the school's Fathers' Club, which was a collection of guys from all walks of life who enjoyed a good time and shared a connection at the Towson school. One of the club's officers had the bright idea of starting a Sports Night, and within a nanosecond, it became my responsibility to furnish speakers for these evenings. "You know plenty of people. Should be a snap," bellowed the always-genial Mike Kaiser, Fathers' Club president, who never took no for an answer.

At the end of 2012, the Woman's Club of Catonsville disbanded after 80 years of service to the community. At that time, the club donated the facility at 10 St. Timothy's Lane to the Catonsville Community Foundation (CCF), in order to provide a gathering spot and services for residents. Throughout the years of the Woman's Club existence, the group made an immense impact on the community. Among such contributions were offering the first location for the Catonsville Senior Center, coordinating the location of the Catonsville Library and helping organize the first Catonsville Arts and Crafts Festival.

The Elkridge Club, the exclusive golf venue where Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. held a much-criticized fundraiser this year, has admitted an African-American member for the first time in its 127-year history, a club newsletter shows. Developer Theo C. Rodgers and his wife, Blanche, are listed as newly elected members in the September newsletter, a copy of which was provided to The Sun yesterday. But as Rodgers writes a new chapter in Elkridge history, a sister facility - the Green Spring Valley Hunt Club, founded in 1892 for fox hunting - awaits its first African-American member, club members say. One member of the Baltimore County club is Jervis S. Finney, the chief legal counsel and ethical adviser to Ehrlich.

Laurel Boys and Girls Club officials have not only decided to put off plans to open a charter high school in their Montgomery Street headquarters indefinitely, but they will not renew the lease of its current tenant, Princeton Day Academy, for next year. According to club president Levet Brown, the charter school is being delayed because club officials have not been able to raise the money needed to bring the building up to code in order to house a school in the facility. Brown said Princeton Day, a private high school with about 40 students, was using space in the annex portion of the building free of charge.
