It may be summer but not everyone in North Laurel is relaxing by the pool. The North Laurel 4-H Club still meets monthly and is getting ready for their busy season. They recently held a contest for Healthy Life Style Posters and the winners include; Aaban Syed and Tricia Wilson received Participation Ribbons, Kat Ward received a Very Good Ribbon, Imaad Syed, William Sheets and Kayleigh Wilson received Excellent Ribbons and Kavita Schroff received Excellent and Champion Ribbons. There will be a July picnic to recognize the winners and to celebrate everyone who participated. In August, they will be preparing to compete in the Howard County Fair and then the Maryland State Fair. Sounds like a fun and busy summer for them all.
The North Laurel Civic Association is not resting this summer, either. Their next meeting will be July 26 at 7 p.m. at the North Laurel Community Center. Come out and find out what is happening in your area. Learn more about your community and meet your neighbors. Do not forget to visit The North Laurel Civic Association Community on facebook.

Now that Success in Style has joined the North Laurel Savage Multi Service Center on Route 1, Charity's Closet will be moving to the Savage Mill in August. Charity's Closet is a previously used clothes store that gives their proceeds to help support Success in Style. They supply the professional outfits for job interviews, for those in need, and sell clothes to the public. It is run by volunteers and will be in need of volunteers. They will be in the New Weave Building and hope to open by August 6. Would you be interested in volunteering for such a wonderful program? If so, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
