As the wife of an Army Reserve lieutenant colonel, Cheri Fish says she and her family have changed residences 10 times in 10 years. She knows another move is in store when her husband says, "We need to talk. " Fish knows Army life can be hard on families who might not call any one place home for long. But she hopes members of the Fort Meade-based 3rd Training Support Battalion, 312 Regiment will remember that they can look back to Maryland for support. Her husband, Lt. Col. Calvin E. Fish, is commander for the battalion, which on Sunday held its Family Day event at Blob's Park in Jessup.

AUGUST, traditionally a time for vacations, is a good month to implement an American Family Day. A foundation for the day already exists: In Arizona and Michigan, statutes have been enacted for that purpose, and Kiwanis International has recognized a Family Day each year.From historic and practical standpoints, a Family Day is appropriate. That's what Anna Jarvis had in mind at the turn of the 20th century, when she successfully sought legislation establishing a Mother's Day. Miss Jarvis envisioned a celebration that was family-centered, low-key, religious and personal.

Despite the forecast of rain, the annual SARC Family Fun Day drew a crowd to the Harford County Equestrian Center on Tollgate Road in Bel Air Saturday afternoon. Though the day was supposed to feature hot air balloons, the mid-day winds that kicked up and threat of rain meant they couldn't go up in the air. Balloon owners still had their baskets set up, and let children and adults climb in to see what it was like, but the colorful balloons were grounded, not even out of their bags.

Perched on a tall chair in her floral-print Hawaiian dress, Vida Reimel looks down and smiles at her friends. Her feet bounce in the air as she begins to belt out "The Star-Spangled Banner." Sure, some of the words get mixed up, and "rockets" sounds like "rompoms," but for a 4-year-old, she pretty much nails it. After the song, she hops down and scurries over to the snack table, hoping to grab one of the few remaining Rice Krispie treats. "My favorite part is when I get to sing my own song," Vida said, smiling.

For the third time in 50 years, the National Security Agency played host to "family day" yesterday, an event that for many decades-long employees signaled the first time their relatives were allowed to see where they work. But far from the average bring-your-child-to-work day, the event attracted more than 16,000 curious relatives who lined up early in the morning for a chance to look behind the gates of the nation's most secret spy agency. After being asked to leave all cameras, phones, pagers, electronic equipment and "incendiary devices" at the gate, many family members had their first peeks at a relative's desk and cubicle, and took their first small tours of the facility at Fort Meade in Odenton.
