The Laurel Beltsville Senior Activity Center is hosting a Newcomer's Coffee at the senior center's own Café Latte on June 1, at 10 a.m.

Enjoy a free cup of coffee and learn about the senior center's classes and events. This would be a great time to ask those questions about the contemporary gym, the pottery kiln, the pool tables or the woodworking and dance classes. The senior center offers our senior community many worthwhile activities and opportunities.

If you've been wondering whether or not to check it out, this is your chance, and you can meet some new friends, too.

The First Friday Variety Dance is that evening. Dance the night away from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. with a great DJ. Cost is $3 per person. For more information about the Newcomer's Coffee or the Variety Dance, call 301-206-3387.

Bond Mill Elementary's recycling program has resumed. The receptacles are outside, on the side of the school. The school encourages the neighborhood's help by recycling such items as newspapers, catalogs, magazines and lightweight cardboard.

Have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day weekend. Summertime, here we come!
