It's always nice to hear from former editor Connie Ballenger. Connie recently shared information about the Family 5K Run/Walk sponsored by Glen Mar United Methodist Church to be held April 20.
The event is a benefit for the Howard County Food Bank. You can sign up as an individual or as a team. The cost is $30 per participant and you are asked to bring nonperishable food items.
Those who register by April 2 are guaranteed a Run/Walk T-shirt. Go to http://www.glenmarumc.org/ to learn more.

There were Irish smiles all around as St. Louis School joined in the fun of Baltimore's St. Patrick's parade. Some of the students and their families were part of a group representing Catholic schools.
On March 20, St. Louis School hosted a performance of four Irish dancers who perform with the World Champion Teelin Irish dance troupe. It's great to be Irish.
That isn't the end of the good news from St. Louis for March.
The St. Louis girls CYO basketball team beat Monsignor Slade in the final game of the Baltimore Archdiocese tournament to bring home the championship trophy for the second year in a row. The girls got an early lead and never looked back as they went for the win.
