Wesley Kane was named Second Chair in the Senior All State Band. Kayla Krammes earned Junior All State Orchestra honors.

Time is the one thing that we all are given that we can't make more of. Sure, there are "time-saving devices" or "daylight savings time" but really, we can't bank that "saved time" for some "time" in the future.
Now, with this said, do you have any spare time, time that you can invest in the lives of others who are in need?
Neighbor Ride, one of premier volunteer-based service organizations in the county, is looking for drivers. The goal of Neighbor Ride is to decrease isolation and improve the quality of life for Howard County's older residents.
By becoming a volunteer driver, you will help our seniors remain active and independent by providing rides for medical appointments, shopping, social outings, fitness activities, religious services, volunteer commitments and other day-to-day needs.
You can pretty much set your own schedule and it's a great way to involve your children in an intergenerational experience. The need is great. Do you have any spare time? Contact Rosemary Noble or Patrice Cerwonka at 410-884-RIDE or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about volunteering.
Wow, only 11 shopping days until Christmas! Remember our military members who are standing the watch. Send up a prayer for them and their families.
