Congratulations to Martha Rowe and Robyn Levy of Girl Scout Troop 4602. The girls earned their Silver Awards, the highest offered in Girl Scouting, by organizing Hugs for the Homeless to assist homeless women and men supported by the Route One Day Resource Center.

They each put in over 50 hours in service to Howard County homeless by knitting scarves, collecting gloves, socks and hand warmers, and donating Girl Scout cookies.

The Silver Award recipients note they were greatly assisted by fellow troop members Sophia Masood and Michaela Cohee. The girls also prepared and served meals. The fine efforts of these young ladies made a big difference in the lives of many less fortunate.

Our area schools have many international students. This means there must be many international parents residing in the Clarksville area who will need and want to know the ropes for the school system.

There is an International Parent Leadership Program to give international parents the information and training they need. It begins on Oct. 10, but applications are due by Thursday, Sept. 26.

Call Min Kim at 410-313-1294 to learn more.

This is Homecoming weekend at River Hill High School. The theme is ancient homecoming traditions. You’ll find traditions from Ancient Egypt, Ancient Rome and Ancient China, as well as Mayan, Incan and Aztec traditions from Central and South America.

Hawkfest is 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 27, followed by the game between River Hill Hawks and Centennail Eagles at 7 p.m. Your support is always welcome.

The Homecoming Dance is set for Saturday, Sept. 28.

You can make a difference in the lives of the needy in Howard County by donating new or gently used coats to the 2013 Family Coat Drive sponsored by the PTA Council of Howard County and the HCPSS Pupil Personnel Workers. Be sure the coats are clean and in good repair with all buttons attached and zippers in working condition.

Your help is greatly appreciated by those county residents in need. The working poor need all the help they can get to live and work in this area.

Coats are being collected at several county schools until Oct. 18. To find out if your school is a collection site, contact the school or the school’s PTA representative.

The Mustang Club of Maryland held an all makes and models car show during Howard Community College's Grand Prix at Miramar Farms in Clarksville recently. Members and vehicles come from all over Maryland and some from Virginia. If you'd like to know more about this not-for-profit organization, go to www.mustangclubofmd.com/.

Clarksville Middle School will host a blood drive on Oct 14, 4-8 p.m., in cafeteria. Schedule your appointment at  www.redcrossblood.org/.

If your group has an event planned for October or later this year, be sure to email me a good three weeks in advance of the publication date. The fall season always seems to usher in good times to be shared.
