Yes, it's finally here and with that comes spring cleaning. For many of us, this means getting rid of old bank statements, tax records and other personal documents.
Well, help is on the way. Anne Arundel County will be holding Shred-A-Rama VIII on Saturday, May 3, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. This is the eighth year for this event and there will be four shredding locations throughout the county.
The locations are: Western District, Ridgeway Elementary School, located at 1440 Evergreen Road in Severn, at the intersection of Telegraph Road (MD Route 170); Northern District, Brooklyn Park Middle School, located at 200 Hammonds Lane in Baltimore: Eastern District; Anne Arundel County Police Headquarters, located at 8495 Veterans Highway, Millersville, in the back parking lot; and last but certainly not least, Southern District, South River High School, located at 200 Central Ave. East in Edgewater.
There is no charge for Anne Arundel County residents but a donation bucket will be available. Residents may bring up to four boxes or bags of documents for shredding.
An exciting event is scheduled tonight. The Rotary Club of Glen Burnie is having its 2014 Service Above Self Community Awards Dinner at Michael's Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie.
This is the third year for this event and my husband, Tim, has been chosen along with 45 other community volunteers from Anne Arundel County as a Community Service Volunteer of the Year for 2014.
Tim was nominated by the Anne Arundel County Community Emergency Response Team, for which he is a trained and certified volunteer member. Volunteers are chosen from various nonprofit organizations, community associations, fire departments and more.
Congratulations to everyone! A detailed follow-up article on tonight's event will appear in a future column.
A happy birthday to my friends Nikki Schmidt, who celebrated on March 14; Nancy Mical, who celebrates today; and Theresa Robertson, who celebrates on March 26.
