MIDDLEBURG UNITED Methodist Church recently celebrated the 150th anniversary of its building with a Sunday service that included members from its two sister churches, Uniontown United Methodist Church and Brick United Methodist Church. The white clapboard building dates to 1850, but the congregation is older, according to church documents. The first service was held in a log schoolhouse in Middleburg in 1823. As was the custom then, people would meet to worship under the leadership of a "circuit riding minister."

ROSALIND SHAPPARD loves to run. As a student at the University of Maryland, she was a member of the track and cross country teams, and was an All-American athlete in cross country and in the mile and 1,500-meter events. She also earned a place in the 1988 and 1992 Olympic trials. For the past three years, though, she jokes, her running career has consisted solely of chasing after her children, a 2-year-old and a 10-month-old.This month, in her first competitive event in a renewed racing career, the Crofton woman entered the 11th Annual Crofton Kiwanis/Chesapeake Bagel Bakery 10K Challenge.
