I want to express my thanks to writer Lauren Fulbright for consistently producing well researched and very well written articles. Her most recent example is about the Catonsville Rotary Club ("Morning meetings no more for Sunrise Rotary Club," Catonsville Times, July 20). Please permit me to make one small suggestion about one of the article's quotes that reinforces a myth that Rotary is only for businessmen. In fact, our members are both women and men; one of our former presidents has been a female member.

Wednesday  when I was housecleaning, the phone rang. It was a woman from Meadowbrook   thinking my name was something different, but she had the right membership number. She’d called to say I’d paid my membership fee for next winter, but not for this summer.   I didn’t believe her. I always take advantage of the “early bird” special. I’ve done it for years, even decades. I pay the twice-yearly membership fee for swimming at Meadowbrook months in advance to save a little.

Keeping Howard County Council members part-time legislators is a goal most county leaders take for granted, but some worry that that if the county's population continues to swell the size of the five members' districts, the job may become more of a full-time commitment. The county's Charter Review Commission discussed the best size for the council in a still-growing county at a meeting Wednesday in Ellicott City, along with other potential changes to the charter, which by law must be reviewed once every eight years.

At 62, Maryland American Legion Commander Michael L. Mooney is one of the younger members of his Baltimore County post. And that, he said, is part of the problem. Membership of the Parkville American Legion Post No. 183 has dropped by half over the past decade, he said, and is losing another 5 to 7 percent each year. "Ours is a primarily World War II post," said Mooney, a Vietnam-era veteran. With the youngest survivors of World War II now in their mid-80s, and few of the tens of thousands of new veterans minted in Iraq and Afghanistan during the last decade showing much interest in taking their place in veterans service organizations, the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars and other groups are struggling to hold on to the active membership they need to remain vital.
